Mustard Yellow Stripes & A crystal bow tie

Kristen Dee Photography

I’ve been so excited to post about this bow tie necklace since the second I laid eyes on it. Isn’t it just the coolest thing you’ve ever seen? For me, it was love at first sight. One of my roommates saw it when I was putting together this instagram on our living room floor (#typical) and was like, “…okay, that’s the most awesome thing I’ve ever seen! a bow tie made of crystals?!” And my response, was was an ecstatic, “I know, right?! I’m obsessed!” I have a feeling you felt the same way when you saw it in these photos above – right?! Right. It’s a show stopper for sure ;) …oh, and I think it would make a great Christmas present too – don’t you think? ;)

Speaking of Christmas presents, have you seen this new-ish (launched a few months ago) bag from GiGi New York?! This style is called the Madison cross body and comes in a few different pebble leathers. It’s the perfect size for day-to-night essentials and adds a cute accent to any outfit. Personally, I think their website is loaded with amazing gifts. I’ll for sure be including some of their goodies in upcoming gift guides…you can’t go wrong with leather and personalization ;)

This shirt also comes in a classic black and white stripe, which I’m tempted to snag. I want to mention that I really like the length of this shirt – it’s a little longer than most button downs. And the longer length makes it easier to style.

PS: I’m doing a fun little instagram giveaway that I’m hoping to get posted (on instagram) either later today or tomorrow for a chance to win one of these beautiful cross body bags + personalization!
