Lookbook: Polka Dot and Bow Ties


What I’m Wearing
*Top: Shop Sosie Tie Blouse
*Skirt: Zara – Similar for under $20, adorable red polka dot skirt at shopbop.
*Tights: DKNY – my favorite no waistband tights.  So comfy and doesn’t squeeze in the belly area!
*Shoes: Miu Miu Leather Platform Pumps – on sale! Cute look for less (under $100)
*Bag: Chanel
*Jewelry: t+j Designs Luxe Mesh and Gold Bangle, Hammered bangles (wearing 2), Glam  Leatherette Ring (on sale for $20!), and  Gold Drop  Luxe Earrings (if you want pretty, sparkly and lightweight earrings, these are it!  I wore these all day long and they didn’t hurt my ears at all.) Use code GIFTS to take 20% off your order.

My husband and I have an annual tradition of where we treat ourselves (TREAT YO SELF – please tell me you watch Parks and Recreation) 🙂 to a nice dinner for the holidays before work, family and friend parties/dinners/get togethers jam pack our schedules.  It’s nice to celebrate the holidays just the two of us.  I love my family and spending the holidays with them but something about celebrating some moments with just my husband really makes it special.  Anyway, it’s completely not necessary to dress up anywhere you go in Seattle, even at the fanciest of restaurants as it is a very casual city.  And although the weather was crappity crap I felt like dressing up to feel a bit pretty that night, so put on a very girly ensemble.  I adore bow tie blouses and this one from ShopSosie is perfect.  I love the light material, the flowy sleeves and of course the bow tie. 

I hope you all are enjoying the holiday season!  I’m getting a bit caught up in the stress and excitement of everything so am looking forward to finish wrapping all the gifts and getting a nap or two in and snuggling with my puppies this weekend. 🙂  Happy Friday!

**Despite Monday’s post that I wrote last week, I wore this outfit this weekend so this actually is a recent lookbook! 🙂  Sometimes scheduling my posts ahead contradicts myself.  haha!**

    Hi. This is a great outfit!

    I've been following your blog recently, and I just love how you style everything!

    I love that "TREAT YO SELF" mantra from Parks and Rec. Did you watch that recent episode with the Marshmallow Ron Swanson? 🙂

    This is so beautiful Tiffany! I am in love with bow tie blouses as well. There is nothing more feminine in my opinion. Thanks for telling us about the DKNY tights – I'm going to buy a pair!

    I absolutely adore this sweet look and nice tradition of yours! And your volumized straight hair! 🙂
    Luckily this year doesn't seem overwhelmingly crazy. Everything has been spaced out pretty well.

    yes, there's nothing like spending the holidays, just with your loved one (for me, it's loved ones… hubby, son and daughter). 🙂 you look amazing here. love the contrast of the skirt against the black top and tights… and vintage chanel… i sold this exact style several months ago, and oh, i wish i had kept it… lol. how can you go wrong with this look?! you look flawless.

    have a great wknd.

    Aw, what a lovely tradition to have! I know~ once the holidays really start to kick in with all the holiday parties/get-togethers, it's tough finding time to fit in everything. I really love your outfit though! The top with the bow is so cute! Your earrings are so pretty too. :]
