Just Add a Bow

October 31, 2016

Just add a bow. It’s one of the easiest ways to change up or add interest to any look! Bow blouses have always been a favorite of mine. What’s even easier is having the ability to add a bow to anything. I got this classic white blouse with a collar last year as well as a black and white bow. I am constantly styling them in different ways. The bows are also easy to add onto any patterned blouse. I’m linking a bunch of options below as well as sharing a few other ways I have styled the same blouse by just adding a bow. You could even use a neck scarf as a bow with anything!

I know it is really early, but adding a bow is a perfect way to make an outfit feel holiday inspired. I paired my blouse and bow with a plaid skirt for a holiday party last year (see the post here), and it was perfect! I am eyeing this beaded bow for that reason. You can also buy the exact top I am wearing in this post which comes with the bow I have on today.

Hope you all had a great weekend and Happy Halloween! We had a fun time dressing up. I was a gumball machine, and Russ was Wooderson from Dazed and Confused. Did you see my IG story? Yesterday we went to church and a friend’s shower.

    Ahh I love how you styled the bow look, not just today but every single one! I am so obsessed with this (as you know). ALSO, I don’t know it never occurred to me to just buy a tie (or now take the one from my tank from last week’s post) and pair it with a regular button up shirt. I have so many ideas now with some of the button ups in my closet!!! Thanks for the inspo girl girlie!
