Bow ties are cool

This look was inspired partly by Koi Story/Manzanita and partly by Eat Sleep Wear. Ever since I started the blog I rarely wear my Chucks, and I have three pairs...

The weather has turned to rainy foggy bleakness, but fortunately I've finally learned to stop overexposing when it's overcast and these photos came out pretty well.

I did get teased a bit for my leopard scarf as bow tie, but I'm just going to stand my ground - bow ties are cool.

I've noticed several bloggers have been posting photos of their homes, now decorated for the holidays, and many of them already have an abundance of Christmas cards on display. I realize it's still early, but I haven't gotten any cards yet!

Since nothing is more fun than coming home and finding something other than junk mail in your box,  I have a fun idea; would you like to exchange cards with me this year? You can email me your name and address, and once you do, I will reply with my mailing address and we can all help keep the Postal Service from going bankrupt!
(I promise I will never use your address for anything other than sending you cards, or presents, if you are extra good.)

aww thats such a great idea! I love that bow on your outfit and the chucks. You know I haven't really worn mine either... I usualy bring them on trips/vacation to walk around in.

Yay! This look is super adorable. Some people just don't get fashion-forwardness, but I think you are killing it with this one. Nice work! :)

Bow ties are totally cool. And I think the scarf appropriated for a bow tie is even cooler because I like the long tails.

I'll do one better-- I'm sending you a package (fabric!) and some other things soon. And an email, but that might be tomorrow. I haven't slept in three days and don't really know what I'm saying tonight.

What a unique outfit! Love the chucks! Xoxo

Loren said...

So I saw the title of your post and I thought you were maybe making a Dr. Who reference. But your bow-tie is still really cute. Love it with the converse.
Dr. Who would approve of those.

I like you scarf tied that way. Bow ties are cool.

I love how you took inspiration from Rebecca and I and mixed it with Kim's amazing style! You look amazing! I love the leopard print bow/scarf, your blazer, and those chucks! I need to start wearing mine! They are pink :), and I really want some olive or black ones!

PS: Thanks for the mention :)

Josie said...

I think that is a great look on you. YOu should wear the chucks more often.
My outlook won't work but the Christmas Card idea is lovely - I got my first two yesterday.

love bow ties!
cool outfit!

monica said...

i did not think anyone off the wrong way could pull that bow tie look off, but i am clearly wrong

Stefanie said...

I love this outfit as much as I Matt Smith as the 11th Dr! I think the leopard print scarf goes really well with the shirt!

Are you excited for the Dr Who Christmas special? Hehe!

P.S. The Christmas card idea is fab, I'm in!

Style Journey said...

You killed it with this look. The feminine bow with the punk/rock Chucks looks great! A little bit girly a little bit masculine. Super cute :) The Christmas card exchange sounds fun too.

DaniellaBella said...

I love the jaunty bow with your rockstar shoes!

yiqin; said...

I haven't gotten any cards yet this year, either, but if you forget to take last years cards down, you might not notice...

I would have never penned you as a girl who would wear Chucks! You are even cooler now that I know this tid bit :)

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

I'm not sending cards this year... going through a divorce I just kind of don't know who I should even send them to. It's kind of sad =-(

I did a similar outfit during my leopard week, but with heels. So now I'm going to try sneakers. This outfit is cool and cute!

ps. I'm all for big bows especially with an animal print scarf.
