Recent Obsessions

I am obsessed with tops that feature ties and bows lately (and I am consciously refusing to use the term ‘pussy bow’ here).

pants: Zara / top: Asos / shoes: Steve Madden / cardigan: Pins + Needles via Urban Outfitters / watch: “borrowed” from my helpmeet / ring: House of Harlow

I’m also starting to catch the spring weather bug and haunting ASOS/doing some online window shopping for summer pieces. Like these.

















What’s your current fashion obsession?

I don't like the term pussy bow either. Your blouse is cute!

Kate said...

Why in the world are they called pussy bows, anyway???

Love the red lips with that outfit!

My current obsession is combining pink & red (even though I haven't done it a ton - yet). When I was a kid, my mom told me they clashed - but I always rather liked the combo & am loving its resurgence this spring!

and all those spring clothes are awesome, especially the skater dress, so fun!

Yep, Harrods and Camden Market are on our list :)
Portobello Market would be on the list but I went last time and don't really need to do that again. I can go to Harrods a million times ;) And I missed Camden Market last time b/c I went to Paris

Love your cute bow! (I refuse to call it a pussy bow.)

Also, that Skater Dress in Mexican Print is to die for.

I am loving the colored skinnies, long maxi skirts and I really want a pair of red + pink flats.

wow I didn't know it was really called pu**y bow...see I can't even type it LOL Great outfit - could it become a DIY or a thrift re-fashion if possible?? hmm

I love the white blazer and the midi dress with sheer panel!!

Marie a la Mode said...

Great picks! I love that envelope clutch. And you look so cute wearing bows : )

Oh my gosh, that white lace dress is just too much! I love it!

Way to not use the term "pussy bow" by the way ;)

I love, love bows! They just fancy up anything!

And yes, Phoenix was lovely this time of year! I heard that summer is awfully hot and that I was there at the perfect time.

Haha I have called it a pussy bow blouse in the past - never been to keep on the term either but wasn't sure on an alternate name! :)

Really cute blouse and the bow looks so cute. Another great outfit!

My current fashion obsession- strange prints. I just found the cutest kitsch dress to die for. It has an elephant print on!!

This is a really cute look! I really love the white lace dress and blazer, I seem to really be into white lace lately. I hate the term .... bow too, I think I'll stick to loose over-sized bow? Too much?

LOVE the blouse - sadly I HAVE used the term pussy bows, but I do know where it was derived from so I don't feel TOO bad saying it ;)

My current obession are envelope clutches, I think I might attempt a DIY one of these days ;)

Have a great weekend my dear! Hope all is well with you!

Emma said...

Great top! It has a very Parisian feel to it.

I love the look, but I'm not a huge fan of that term either...I'm currently obsessed with mint, neon pink and tangerine!

THE-LOUDMOUTH said...

Okay, first off... what does 'pussy bow' even mean?? It creeps me out.

I do like the bow, though! It's super cute and adds a little flair to your outfit!

And all the colors in this post are just lovely.

Sada said...
