Tie it in a bow

Spring is returning to us today!  I sure hope it's here to stay.  Knowing our luck it isn't, but that's why we just go one day at a time!  At any rate, even though the day started out chilly, I just had to wear a skirt again.  It was a pretty pants heavy week last week, so I just needed a skirt fix today.  I figured it has been awhile since I pulled out this fun patterned beauty, so it was time to do so again.

I don't think this sweater has ever made an appearance on the blog even though I've had it for a couple of years now.  I sometimes forget I have it, it ends up at the bottom of the drawer a lot.  It's cute and just about right for today's weather and I thought it would look nice with the skirt. I adore the bow!

As you see, I did stick with practical shoes today though because it's Tuesday again which means I'm entering the construction zone at work for my weekly photos.  It's super cool this week, they are digging a pit where an elevator is going at one end of the building and the hole is giant.  There's this adorable little crane type machine that the guy is using to do the digging - anyone remember those crane like sand toys at the playground?  It is totally like that.  I wonder if the guy used to play on one when he was a kid and thought "I wish I could do this when I grow up!"  I think it looks like fun, it probably isn't in reality!

  3. The sweater is delightfully feminine. And I like your shoes. You always look interesting and attractive.

  4. I like the sweater, but pretty much anything with a bow is good in my book. I am tired of the weather, and definitely ready for it to stay warm.

  5. Super cute sweater, I am such a sucker for bows. Well, florals, lace, and then bows. Yup, I rank my obsessions! XO Lori

  6. The little bow detail on your sweater is really cute!

  7. Super sweet sweater. You should totally wear it more often. It's very flattering. I bet that guy thinks his job is pretty cool. I bet it IS fun, at least I'd assume it was.

  8. Bows are such an adorable accessory to an outfit and I'm happy to see that funky skirt again. Eek construction at work- stay safe! :)

  9. Cute sweater! I love the little bow detail :)
