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!
