Bubbles and Bows

 Dress: Old Navy | Belt: Another Dress | Shoes: Old Navy | Necklace: JewelIQ | Bracelet: F21

It's official. I am now a proud owner of the infamous Blogger Bubble Necklace.

I know, I know, it's old news. Everyone has it in 500 colors and here I am with just my one simple black beauty. I am sure it won't be long until I add a few more to my collection. 

I really do love it and want to send a HUGE thank you to JewelIQ for sending it over to me. If you haven't checked out this online jewelery shop, you are missing out. Everything is $25 or less and that includes shipping. So. Much. Cute. Stuff.

Okay, now the bow part. I adore this dress. It's one of my faves because of it's simplicity and versatility, but I didn't like that it came with a matching bow belt. It needed something to help separate the top from the bottom. So I took a belt one from another dress and tied a bow on the side.

And can we talk about how much I have worn these shoes? They have been my summer go-to. I definitely got my $20 wear out of them and then some. I love how I can lace them up and make a bow in the front (here), one in the back (here) or on the side like I did in the pictures above. Plus, they are super slimming for the ankles!

Thanks for all the sweet and heartfelt comments yesterday. I was overwhelmed and truly touched. I am so blessed to have each and every one of you in my life. I am so grateful to share my thoughts and experiences with you and that you take time out of your busy day to read and comment. 

You rock my world!

Cheers to girly things...like bubbles and bows.

I LOVE, love, love this dress!! I also love that you paired it with black and not some other crazy color :) (Not that the green is crazy, but well hopefully you know what I mean!) :) Love the jewelry, shoes & belt too!!! I just got one of the coveted bubble necklaces last week (from Ebay because I'm cheap - $14!) and love mine! I ordered 3 more :) Funny, everyone in blog world seems to have them but I haven't really seen anyone in "real life" with them!
