Black & Gold

black and gold shimmer dress, kate spade bow pumps

 Bows, bows, and more bows.

As you’ve probably realized by now, I have a thing for bows. Bow belts, bows on my toes, bow jewelry, little bow details on bags, bow sweaters, you name it. I love the fun, girly touch! Typically, I try to only incorporate a single bow piece into an outfit to avoid overkill, but with today’s look, I just kind of said screw it. It’s the holidays and I’ll wear three bows if I want to! With the simple black and gold color palette, though, I think it works!
