Put A Bow on It

Oct 3, 2011

Happy Monday Friends. Hope your weekends were as great as ours! Good news the recipe tab is up and running. Please give me feedback if you think it should be organized differently. I did it by categories like appetizer, main course etc. This should make locating my recipes alot easier for you!

Now back to the topic at hand, bows. Anyone else obsessed with the bow-neck blouse?

To me this is the most stylish outfit ever and I plan to totally copy it!

Here are a few bow-neck blouses I have been eyeing.
I love the red color of this blouse. Jewel tones are my favorite for fall.

Of course I love Rachel Zoe’s version of the tie-neck blouse and I think the ivory would go with everything. It reminds me of the blouse in my inspiration picture!

Ever since seeing Blair from Atlantic Pacific wear this blouse it has been on my lust list!

I have eyeing this jacket for weeks. I think I might bite the bullet and order it. It is so chic and I think it could be dressy or casual with skinny jeans.

In other news I found a new line of blouses I love called Gemma. I wore this Gemma Blue Blouse Saturday night. I found my blouse at Monkee’s out on Daniel Island awhile back.

They have this version on Piperlime and I think its adorable. I am thinking about adding it to my ever growing blouse collection! The blouse is such a cute fit and I love the gray geometric pattern.

Can you tell I have a serious love affair going on with blouses? They make the perfect chic outfit with jeans! Which tie-neck blouse do you like the best if I buy one?

  10. I do like the bows!! It adds interest and makes the blouses so feminine. Also, I love the blouse you have on!! That color is beautiful.

  11. Hooray for a recipe tab!! So glad you took the time to do it. You should do a whole post highlighting some of your favorites that we haven't seen in awhile.

  12. I am in love with that little Milly jacket, so cute! Anything with a bow actually.

    Bow blouses are the BEST! So ladylike and feminine. I am pregnant again, but found a cute bow blouse from H and M's Mama line. I like the Marc Jacobs one for you. Think you should go for it!

  14. You know I am obsessed!!! I have 3 so far. I am getting into this "thrifting" game and found out that Goodwill and resale shops sell a ton of these. I found one Saturday and washed it up real good!

    Bow loose fitting (needed for post baby) blouses are my favorite thing right now. I just ordered 5 from Piperlime and Old Navy. I am not normally an Old Navy shopper but you can't beat this deal for 25$. I just got this in the mail in the off white and it is even cuter in person. Ordered the navy also. http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=72302&vid=1&pid=864264
