Bow Tied

I'm not sure why it's happening now, but I've been on a home decorating kick lately (browsing Etsy for little knick knacks sure is addicting!) As part of the process, I moved my non-jewelry accessories from the closet over to my makeshift-desk-as-vanity. One of the little treasures I rediscovered is this polka dotted bow tie. So for today's outfit, I added a little whimsy to an otherwise staid look.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

  1. Etsy has so many great things I can browse for hours. :)
    I love bow ties and the one you rediscovered is so cute and adds a fun touch to your outfit in place of a statement necklace. What a great way to accessorize :D ~ Phoebe

  2. What a beautiful outfit. I call outfits like these office chic. You'd be the best dressed woman in the office in this!

  6. I missed the original shoe post (probably all discombobulated from the last few weeks of being preggo lol), but those are gorgeous! They look almost sparkly? Like a magpie, I am instantly attracted to sparkly / shiny things. Too often, I'll be walking out of a store and stop to admire some nearby bauble. Annoys my husband to no end ("I thought we were leeaaaaavvvviiiiinnng").

    Um, sorry for the novel. Love the bow tie - you look so dapper!

    1. Hahaha I'm like your husband except my line is "Are we done yet?", "Can we go now?" I'm such an annoying little kid sometimes ;)

      Now that you mention it, the shoes do have sort of a translucent quality to it, depending on lighting. It was one of the rare purchases that I seriously considered buying doubles for. I didn't, so I hope this pair will last me for a long while!

  11. Equally addicting? Browsing Pinterest for ways to make your own. I would need to take a year off of work just to complete all of the projects I have pinned right now :)

    I love the bow tie...you can never go wrong with polka dots!
