Covered in Bows

I saw this little shift dress with the ticker tape bows and knew I had to have it! (It reminds me so much of this Tibi skirt I have from a few years ago!) The neutral colorway is perfect for the holidays and beyond. Wear it with or without tights (it’s currently FREEZING here in Chicago and tights are a must), layer it with a little turtleneck underneath, or even top it with a faux fur coat. Styling options are endless!

This black ribbon bow belt is off of a Milly dress from years ago… Talk about #tbt! I literally can’t believe I’m showing you this post from 2011, or that it’s still on the internet, for that matter. 🙈 But I found some cute options if you’re looking to add a little bow to some of your holiday dresses high-waisted skirts… I love this sequin one at J.Crew!

FYI: While I was searching, I found this belt for $13 that looks just like this giant black bow belt I have from Kate Spade!

I got this Ralph Lauren black wool coat a few years back, but I found lots of similar styles available… Most of which are on sale!
