tied pretty like a bow

Even though I spent the majority of my Friday at school (that should never, ever happen), I finally, finally, got to go shopping this week! It was a much deserved trip to the mall with my boyfriend and we both left with a few beautiful items. I bought a sky-high pair of red patent heels and made the mistake of wearing them out dancing... Someone stomped on my foot and ripped the patent material in the process, reducing me (almost) to tears. I'm taking the poor heel to the shoe repairman tomorrow. I'm hoping for a miracle! I'm planning on doing a lovely haul post next week to showcase my purchases. Although, what I'm lusting over right now are simple, pretty bows. I love accessorizing an outfit with a bow to give it that girlish element. I was just having fun compiling images when all of a sudden three bow-inspired outfits took shape, and I loved the result. A little weekend inspiration for you all!
