Inspiration + Shopping: Bow Time

Last week I got an email from a friend of a friend who stumbled upon my instagram account and this picture in particular. She was on the hunt for a cute bow-themed top to wear to her daughter’s birthday party and was wondering if she could borrow it. Since you know I’m all about a good clothing share, I immediately agreed (although I still need to wash it and get it to her!). But her quest for cute bow gear was a blog post just waiting to happen. So I hunted down some inspiration and an array of items that can fill the need for a girly bow on any budget.

Here’s my thing about bows. You have to keep it sophisticated to avoid the childish, little girl look. I like to stick to basic colors – black, white, navy, pale pink – too avoid looking too kitschy (although I love a little kitsch when it’s called for as evidenced here). I love the looks below because every bow looks simple and chic – not too over the top. I especially love this leather bow bracelet (available on etsy here for only $10!) in leather. The leather adds a little edge to the sweet piece.

So Whether you’re wanting to go all out or jut add a little feminine touch, here’s a few ways to incorporate bows into your wardrobe.

    I adore bows! I bought a bow ring at Madewell a little while ago and I love it! And that leather bracelet is fab.
