Prim & Proper

Shirt: TJMaxx, $7 // Bow: Belt from a different shirt // Jeans: Forever 21, $15 // Shoes: Payless, borrowed
 
I've found that I tend to dress rather seriously on Mondays. Perhaps it's a subconscious attempt to jolt myself out of weekend mode. Granted, my version of a pulled-together ensemble involves jeans. But, hey, I work at an ad agency. That's how we roll. And did you get a load of that grandiose bow? I mean business!

I just adore your new hair! I guess it's not that new anymore... but it's so good! You definitely look great as a blonde! :) (And as a brunette, too, but don't blondes have more fun? Haha...)

I love how the simple change of hair color has been rocking your entire wardrobe choices! I love how fabulous that giant bow is, but it's still appropriate for the modern day world. :D This look is cute yet sophisticated, perfect!
