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.)

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

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

  22. 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!

  23. 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.

  26. I love that you're wearing chucks with this outfit. They work perfectly! I wouldn't tease you.

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

  42. 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.
