Wrapped up in bows...

Happy Monday!

We had an unexpected three-day weekend here since last Friday was a snow-day for my kids and hubby.  I actually love snow days...anytime we can all avoid the daily grind I'm all for it!  I think it'll be back to the routine tomorrow...two more weeks of school till Christmas vacation though...not long now!

So on Black Friday I spent a little time in J Crew Factory and was excited to see the Printed Bow-Neck Top in person.  

After reading Gigi's review on Instagram I assumed it would be too short on my long torso but wanted to give it a go anyways.  I tried on both size 0 and size 2 to compare.  Size 0 fit great and was a decent length...almost borderline short but doable.  Size 2 was too baggy but a good length. In the end I went with the better fit..size 0 came home with me and I wore it for the first time the other night:

Original Polyvore set for this look can be found HERE

Skinny Mini Bow Ring-Kate Spade

You know when you find a top that is just SOOOO you?  That's how I felt about this one.  I'm so excited to add this top to my closet!  I remember when it came out in the retail store and thinking it was super cute but again too short so finding that it worked for me this time around was an added bonus!!

The Kate Spade Mini Bow Ring was another Black Friday find.  I LOVE it!!  I grabbed it in Rose Gold.

It would be the perfect gift to give to a girlfriend or sister this Christmas.

I guess you could say I had a bow-obsessed Black Friday this year.  

Never a bad thing, am I right?!

Hope your week gets off to a great start!!!
