Head to Toe Bows


Is 2017 over yet? I’m just curious because this year has been a major downer for several reasons–most recently being the Hurricane ravaging the USVI. So here's a little back story, along with my cute bow outfit…


The Virgin Islands hold a special place in my heart. We started traveling to St Thomas my senior year in high school and our first trip was amazing to say the least. Fast forward to years later, my husband and I was married on island at Bolongo Bay Beach Resort in 2010. Shortly after our my wedding my sister was diagnosed with leukemia and passed away in 2011, and part of her now resides in the harbor of Charlotte Amalie. Needless to say, the USVI has been a place of joy for us for many years, and we have made some great friends along the way. Fast track to this years volatile hurricane season, and our island friends are struggling and keep getting hammered with storm after storm. It’s heartbreaking to see the photos of such a tropical paradise torn to shreds, and it's people just trying to get by. Thankfully, each of our friends are safe, but the rebuilding process will take years–and we’re doing our part to make sure they can rebuild!

Speaking of rebuilding–who gets the itch to completely revamp their closet with the changing seasons? This girl does, and it’s super frustrating to get dressed for work in the morning when you're in this mindset. However, I stopped in H&M on a recent work trip to San Antonio and picked up some of the cutest pieces–this white tie strap tank and these perfect bow flats. I mean, seriously, gimme all the bows! I can't seem to find the top online anymore (some fun options linked below), but the shoes are definitely fall ready and come in black and burgundy. Snag a pair, you won't be sad. Also, I have a new obsession with OneTeaspoon jeans–these are so comfortable and fit perfectly!
