The sartoriography of bowties

 Dress: J. Crew; Sweater: Banana Republic, thrifted; 
Blouse: Ann Taylor, thrifted; Boots, tights: Target;
Frog belt: Highland & Ponce, Calivintage giveaway;
Hairbow (as bowtie): Treasure Box of Bows.

Besides our shared interests in giant graham crackers, boxcars and referring to each other with dessert nicknames (hello, cupcake!), Emily of Sartoriography and I have a mutual love for wearing bowties. So naturally, with an obsession like that, we had to play twins this week and wear them at the same time.  Go see how Emily styles hers here, and then stick around, because her outfits, writing, rural photography and stories of Chicago living will charm your socks off, buttercups.

This outfit was built upon a formula of how much green can I wear without looking too much like a leprechaun? I think one day this outfit will become more monochromatic, but for now, baby steps. This spring will see an increase of more bowtie looks for me ...
