Put a Bow on it...

I've been on the lookout for black heels - although I adore my black studded ZARA heels, they're half a size too big (I must have gotten confused by the European sizing!) I spotted this sweet pair by Nine West at my local Winners - I love the bow design PLUS they're comfortable too...I guess it was meant to be.

Not available online but you may find them at Winners/TJ Maxx/Marshalls (love these quilted and slingback versions)

Recent Outfits:

I've been admiring this pink & camel polka dot Land's End sweater (have you seen their catalogue recently? Very J.Crew-like!) I decided to recreate the combination with items I already owned:

Shirt: H&M, Sweater: Old Navy (similar), Necklace: J.Crew Factory, Jeans: Garage, Booties: Old Navy (similar)




I wore this for a friend's birthday lunch - it was too cold to wear anything fancy!

Shirt: Forever21, Scarf: Express, Bag: Balenciaga, Jeans: Garage, Boots: Old Navy (this year's version)

I love the look of plaid paired with cable knit...or plaid with ANYTHING to be honest! I'm such a fan of plaid this season!

Shirt: Old Navy, Sweater: Old Navy, Necklace: Forever21, Jeans: Garage, Booties: Old Navy (similar)

By the way, if you're looking for outfit inspiration for Valentine's Day, be sure to check out my YMC post here:

Sweater: Express, Clutch: Michael Kors, Dress: ASOS, Crystal Necklace: Le Chateau, Clutch: Guess, Heels: ALDO

Do you like shoes with bows on them? What will you be wearing on Valentine's Day?

  1. Those heels are so comfortable! I have them in nude, even though I only wore them once. I got a 1/2 up as they didn't have my size (not sure why I couldn't pass them up).
    I've been loving your layered looks! I need more plaid in my closet.

    1. I checked out your nude heels- OMG, they're even more gorgeous than the black ones! I'm going to keep an eye out for them :-) I'm so sad about my gorgeous ZARA heels, I used to be able to wear both 7.5 and 8...but now my feet keep sliding out of 8s. I've tried stuffing the shoes with extra insoles etc, but every time I wear them out, I'm flopping around LOL!

    1. LOL Carylee - you're too funny! Hopefully no style-illness exists, but I'm glad we share the same sense of style :-) I LOVED your style post for the linkup - I viewed it from my phone but am off to comment on it now that I'm on my laptop (yes, I'm the dinosaur who hates posting comments from my iPhone...grrr!)
