A Bow-tiful Life

nullnullnullnullnull

Bonjour, loves! How are you all today?

I'm in quite the romantic mood as of late. Now that we're in the thick of winter my mind starts to wander off to pretty things and what's next to look forward to. Where does that leave me? Bows, bows and more bows! They're so pretty and everything looks better with a bow on top, right?

Maybe it's because I'm starting to think of Valentine's Day. Pretty packages all tied together in bows. Coquettish lingerie. ChloƩ fragrance, anyone? I'm getting excited just thinking about it. Hope J pulls out all of the stops this year :)

Hope you all have a lovely day!

xoxo

Happy humpday Dawn!! I love Chloe perfume....a little "someone" I Know was named after it actually, lol.

Chloe bought me more Chloe perfume for Xmas.....:)

Fashion is more than clothing. It’s you, your home & everywhere in between!

I have a thing for bows... must be the romantic in me. I am sure J will pull out all the stops!!! Lovely images as always. xo

oh my, you are feeling bow-ie today ;-)

Valentine's Day has no significant meaning to me as it wasn't celebrated in Iceland and it's not a big thing in Belgium. I just want spring and I want it NOW!

classiq said...

What a romantic post, Dawn! I do love bows too, it's a beautiful detail when done right and can very well work as the perfect accessory. xo

The Chloe bow is darling inspiration; the feminine theme paired with soft peaches is so delicate, yet is a subtle statement. Beautiful!

I love thinking about Valentines Day :) Jared asked me the other day about it, but he must not have looked at a calendar. He never thinks about things this early lol.

GOOODNESS! You know how to make a girl swoon, don't you? I'm hoping I'll be getting a package with a bow on in this year. Fingers crossed!
