Bows A-Plenty

Forever 21 Sweater, Skirt, and Tights, Payless Oxford Wedges

Whew! It’s been way too long since I last did an outfit post! Don’t worry, I have definitely been wearing clothes in the meantime, I just haven’t found a good spot to photograph my outfits in the new apartment. Sorry the pictures are a bit dark, but I wanted to capture this outfit that I wore yesterday.

You guys are going to be appalled- I bought this skirt in March and I’m just now getting around to wearing it! I think I told you about how I’m weird like that: when I buy new clothes I don’t like to wear them all right away, I prefer to save them for a day when I really need them. Well that day was today! I knew this skirt would look really cute with my new oxford wedges that I purchased from Payless via Suddenlee. If you remember, these were in my post on oxford wedges and I bought them soon after making that collage. They are super duper comfy, stylish, and will look great with work ensembles and weekend outfits. I paired my pretty-bow print skirt with these deep green tights (they’re not black, I promise! haha) and a slouchy cable sweater. All together, it was a good outfit for walking around and exploring the city yesterday.

I spent my weekend knitting up a storm, trying to get things ready for my etsy shop to open soon. When the shop opens (hopefully within the next two weeks), you’ll know exactly what I mean by “bows a-plenty!” ;) Yesterday, I also participated in the NYC Yarn Crawl and went to a few different stores with my friend (more on that to come in another post).

Oh, and I can’t forget to add painting my nails to the list of things accomplished!

Tell me: How did you spend your weekend?

  • Ooh, I love this outfit. I really love the bow print skirt, it is completely adorable and the color of the tights is great. I need me a pair of oxford wedges, those are great!

    I love the way you did your nails as well.

    Just love, loving all over this entry.

  • This is a great outfit. I’m excited to finally be able to wear tights again and this outfit made me even more excited. Love the bow pattern of your skirt and the wedge booties you’re rocking. Great day to day look!

  • Nice shoes! Hehe. Your outfit is is very cute, too. Love the sweater! I’m kinda like that with clothes, too, where I don’t wear them for a while. Not quite as bad as you, but I still have a dress from June that I have yet to wear, and things like that.

    I am excited for your shop!!!

  • i think there’s one thing in my closet that i’ve had since June and still haven’t worn, so i totally understand. love the cute little bows on the skirt, and good luck with your etsy shop!
