A Lot of Bows

Do you ever put together outfits and then realize afterwards that perhaps you sub-consciously had a certain theme in mind?

I'm usually quite deliberate in what I choose to wear but in this instance, it was only after I had put this outfit together that I noticed just how many bows I was wearing. It's a good thing I adore them... after all, how else would you explain the fact that I was able to so easily pick out all these bow-adorned items from my otherwise overflowing closet?

Cardigan worn as dress: Delphine (Aritzia) / Tights: Primark / Bag: Miu Miu (here)
Hat: Joe Fresh Style / Belt: H&M / Socks: Garage / Booties: Topshop

    Bows are such a cute accessory! I have earrings, belts, necklaces and rings with bows. Love it (:
    Your outfit is really pretty, especially the hat is so nice. And the bag is a nice light eye catcher

  14. I always do that!!! Especially when it comes to shopping...a 30 minute haul usually leads to all the same tints and shades...some days color, other days all b/w...I swear it's your subconscious tellin' you you hit the spot honey! Love the little bows...very feminine and fresh!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, hope you'll be back to visit sometime!

  15. I love your boots! I'm looking for something like that.. I wonder if they are still available..

  16. I am slightly obsessed with bows, so I love this whole outfit. But I'm the same way... when I like something, I end up buying an outfit to wear with that something... usually all in the same color or theme. weird?
