Bows have essentially been a part of my life since birth, and while I love wearing them any time of the year, they’re especially appropriate around the holidays. Lately, the bow motif has been particularly prevalent in jewelry. I ordered this charming bracelet on Cyber Monday at Purseladytoo, but it seems I snagged the last one. You should still check out this online boutique, which carries plenty of “preppy” accessories by a variety of designers, including Kate Spade, Lilly Pulitzer, and Kiel James Patrick. Purseladytoo ships quickly, holds great deals on holidays, and frequently includes extra gifts with orders.
Thanks, Sally, for directing me to this adorable Madewell ring. It pretty much goes with anything because it’s cute and tiny, yet the brass looks casually worn.
This Bendel’s necklace was a Christmas gift from my sister, and at this point, I’ve probably outworn it. It’s a somewhat modern take on the classic bow, featuring a Swarovski embellishment for good measure. This also matches many different looks.
My favorite way to wear bows is as earrings. It’s the most subtle way to add a refined touch of sweetness to an outfit. I got these Juicy earrings a while ago, but I also have my eye on these darling Kate Spade studs. May your holiday season be filled with tons of bows! (And in case you couldn’t tell, I’m currently reading Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea.)
Stare in awe at these breathtaking photos of “a sea of clouds” taking over the Grand Canyon last week. I’ve already looked at them about ten different times.
