"Bow Tie" Chic

 Jacket: Urban Outfitters | Blouse: Forever 21
Trousers: ASOS | Shoes: J Lo (haha)
Suspenders: Vintage | "Bow tie": Claire's 






So I haven't been posting lately, I know. It's not that I don't like you guys or anything. We have just been having the worst weather lately! Rainy, freezing, and really no sunshine. So, I have really just been waiting for the sun to come out to take some decent photos.

I ordered these cute polka dot pants from ASOS and really didn't know what to expect since I usually don't opt for trouser style pants. However, I got the petite size to account for my general lack of anything resembling height and I think it worked out nicely! These pants only make my butt and hips look a little weird, and I am pretty happy with the length. Also, they sort of feel like pajamas, which is always a winning quality in my book. They are comfy but kind of dressy. Now, if I wore them with a hoodie and my owl slippers...

I paired these trousers with a sleek heel to offset the manishness of the pants and bowtie. Now, yes, these heels are from J Lo's shoe line. Weird, right? Never expected myself to be drawn to a pair of J Lo shoes. Oh well. They were cheaper than the Zara heels I wanted which were similar. 

Now, the last little secret about this outfit, and possibly my favorite part, is the "bow tie." I put the word bow tie in quotations, because this is actually not a bow tie at all. The truth is, I was sort of hard up for a bow tie one day, so I took this hair bow and clipped it on between the buttons on my shirt. BAM! Lady bow tie :) Sometime's a girl's got to improvise, yo. 

Thanks for tuning in, lovelies! Don't forget to subscribe if you like my little bloggie here! Also, I got a Lookbook.nu account, and there is a link at the bottom of my page if you want to check it out! 

Oh, and do you guys prefer blogs to have a mobile version? I kind of like them without, because I like to get the whole experience with the nice background and everything, but I changed mine in an attempt to make it more user friendly. Let me know if it works out that way! Also, on a random note, to all my fellow US'ers, don't forget your taxes are due tomorrow (the 15th)!

  8. Love this outfit! I seriously laughed at your comment about lacking height because I'm in the same boat sista. I'm so hesitant to ever order anything online because I'm so afraid of the fit. I'm glad the trousers worked out, they're adorable :)
