Bows make everything better

Cardigan: The Limited
Belt: made it myself
Skirt: Old Navy
Boots: Steve Madden

My very first outfit picture! I was getting so nervous last night, it felt like the first day of school, where you want to pick out a cute outfit that will impress your friends without looking like you're trying too hard.

My husband took the pictures and he was actually a good sport about it and didn't even crack any jokes or make fun of me. I was impressed! I had asked him last night if he'd take my outfit pictures for me in the morning and he was like "why don't you get one of those photographer boyfriends that everyone has" LOL.

My skirt was only $4! I love good deals like this, where its a super cute item, on clearance, and my size. I think the only times I ever shop at Old Navy is when they have the additional 50% off clearance items sale. And I only shop in the clearance section of Target, too. Um, actually.. I only shop in the clearance section of any store (except Forever 21. The clothes in their clearance section is usually butt-ugly.)

I made this bow belt for a floral dress I was sewing. Of course, the dress turned out horrible (ugh, so horrible. I don't even want to think about all the hours I spent on it.) I decided that I'd keep the bow belt for something else, and I'm glad I did. Isn't it cute? It was super easy, too. I want to make another one, so maybe I'll put up a tutorial for it. Anyone interested?
