Little Details

It has taken me forever to wear this sweater!  But now I can finally check it off my 'unworns' list.  It's just the sweetest little thing, but I could not come up with a solution to my bra showing through the lacy part.  It bugged me.  And I don't wear strapless.  Strapless bra = nightmare.  So here we are with a black, crew-neck tank top underneath.  It's a bit off-center in the picture...hopefully it wasn't like that all day.  Even if it was, I'll take that over people seein' through to my unmentionables.
 
I love the sweater all by itself, but I felt like it could use a little black embellishment.  This little bow came on a cardigan from H&M, but I don't wear them together very often.  Actually, I've probably worn the bow more than the cardigan.
 

This is definitely one of my favorite color combos.  I love yellow a whole lot.  It looks great with any neutral and is just so stinkin' happy.  The brighter the better.  Unless it's neon.  I'm still not so sure about that trend.

Just gorgeous, the bow is divine! I've been searching for a yellow skirt like this for years.

I don't know how I missed this post! You look darling! I love the yellow skirt and the bow is the perfect touch.

Your new hairstyle is so chic, too!

Oooooh - I love this! First, that skirt is amazing, especially paired with the black. Second, I can see nothing off-center about this. I think your solution is perfect and I never would've known any better that it was not part of the sweater. Third - the bow? I die!

i love this. i don't wear yellow for some reason-- i guess i'm scared of the bright, being a recovering goth-- but it's so gorgeous against the black/white that i'm tempted! the bow is too stinkin cute. is it on a brooch pin? great detail. more tops should come with removable details like that!

I just found your blog, and I have to say, your outfit is so wonderful! Love the pairing of such a sweet girly sweater with a bold pop of color, and love even more that you're wearing that bright yellow in the midst of all that snow. I adore color in the wintertime, so it makes me very happy inside :)
