You should’ve tied a bow on it!


You don't have to make more than one lap around your local mall to see that bows have made something of a resurgence. As a child of the 80s, my mom wasted no opportunity to plop a larger than life bow on the top of my poufy head. The Brown-eyed-Belle can back me up here as she recently took us on a little walk down memory lane with her own bow collection....wowzers!

I don't think I'll be sporting a bow on my head anytime soon, but there are plenty of other ways to incorporate this bit of pizzazz to your outfits. I have a huge collection of scarves that don't get much rotation until cooler days, but a scarf can easily be tied into a bow and used to add a little style to a plain tank or t-shirt. I pinned this one on, but you could also just tie it around the straps of your shirt. Or if you are thinking a long skinny scarf around the wrist is more your style, check out the how-to on that adorable blog Summer is a Verb. DSC00942

Mondays can be tough so treat yourselves with extra care my friends! Hope everyone had a lovely weekend!


  1. I totally love the scarf tied into a bow on this tank top! What a lovely way to dress up a simple tank!

  2. Oh gosh! I love that tank top bow detail! Such a fun idea!

  3. Love the scarf tied on the tank top! Cute idea. I used to tie scarves around my wrist all of the time - don't know why I stopped, but thanks for the reminder!

  4. I love bows. Adore. I was flipping through my brother's HS yearbook and was thrilled to see the cheerleaders were rocking big ribbons. Some things should never change - hee!

  5. I'm so glad you're inspired to make something from your Commanders cookbook!!! It's such a great one. The Mr. B's one is amazing too. I use several recipes from their cookbook all the time.

    I'm glad you commented today, because finding your blog is a treat.

    And as for bows, I love them on anything!!

  6. I wore my tank top just like that yesterday and absolutely loved it!



Lay it on me y'all!
