Black Tie

Top: Urban Outfitters, $10 // Trousers: Gap, purchased with gift card // Shoes: Forever 21, $26 // Bow: Sash from another blouse // Ring: Courtesy of  INPINK

I love how this big bow adds drama to even the most understated of outfits. With the help of a sparkly cocktail ring, it takes my simple button-up and skinny trousers to the next level.


Please excuse my chipped polish. There's a reason I don't paint my nails very often! I clearly can't handle the maintenance.

I don't paint my nails at all, & if I do it's in a light color so you can't see when their chipped :)

I have the same problem with nail upkeep. That and I can't keep long nails to save my life.

I LOVE the bow on this blouse. You're right, the bow and the ring give this outfit some pizazz! Enjoy your weekend!

The bow is the perfect statement to your outfit! I really like the pop of red with your shoes as well.

I'm in love with the bow. It's so simple, yet makes such a statement. I can't wait to try this with a collared dress!
