Bowtiful

Black and White Bow Sweater

I know today’s title is a little cheesy, but I couldn’t think of anything clever and bow related. Here’s something you may not know about me: if something has a bow on it, I will buy it. From big bows to tiny bows, and everything in between, I’m slightly bow crazy. Over the summer, I found a stunning Alexandra Grecco dress and fell hard for it. I mean, it’s the biggest bow I’ve ever seen so I had to have it. I preordered it, so I had to wait a few months, but it was well worth it! Now I just need somewhere to wear it…

Today’s outfit is of the skinny bow variety, but I love the classic black and white combination. The black trim along the cuffs and neckline instantly stood out to me at the LOFT store. I didn’t want it to, since I was at the mall for the sole purpose of finding colorful clothes (explained here), but as I mentioned above, I was enchanted by the bow.

    I love a lady-like blouse with leather – it really adds such an interesting combination to a ‘tough’ material! 🙂

      Me too! I love mixing different styles, especially when you’re as indecisive as I am!

    I can relate on trying to find comfortable clothes. Neutrals usually end up in my closet or the one color I buy, I keep on buying it.

      Neutrals are so easy to rack up in your closet! I think it’s easier to justify buying since you can get a lot of use out of them.

    Always the same dilemma for me, too. I keep telling myself… more color… yet I keep gravitating back to the classic feel of B&W together. Oh well.

    BTW… your blouse is adorable.

      I know, it’s so hard! I specifically went to the mall for colors, but when I went into Loft they literally had nothing but black and white stuff. I had to make an exception when I spotted something with a bow!

    I love the headline, its very cute and matches the outfit perfectly. I adore that blouse with the bow and the leather pants.

    Haha….you made me laugh! I’m a bit like that with asymmetrically cut clothing. If it’s the right price, it’s probably getting added to my wardrobe. It’s hard to resist pieces that we love!

      Totally agree with you! It’s so hard to resist when you love something!

    What a sweet little bow! Love the color of your manicure too. Have a great weekend!

      Thank you Stephanie! I love red nails, so they’re painted that color most of the time. Nothing beats a red nail 🙂

      Thanks so much girlfriend! The top is so comfy and easy. So glad you like the hair- it’s getting so long I’m having a hard time taming it!
