Bows: Flirty and Feminine
Bows have always seemed to me to be on the uber girly side of the spectrum, but I’ve changed my mind. I embrace bows! Bows for all. Ha! The reason I’ve changed my mind is due to embracing my feminine side. For years I’ve thought too many bows, too much pink, and frills were better suited to my sister. She fully embraces the pink side in all its glory.
What has made me decide to embrace my feminine side, you might be asking? I’m not entirely sure, but I think it might be due to my move to NYC. I love seeing what other women wear everyday as I head to work. It truly encompasses everything from athleisure wear, to business wear, to jeans and a T-shirt. The women who throw a bit of femininity into their outfits always seem a little more classy. That’s something I currently aspire to so that’s why I’m throwing in the bows and flirty accents.
You know what? I’m loving it! I love throwing on a bow here and there with a cute smile and go on having a great day. I’ve also noticed that it makes other people smile. I hadn’t thought other people would be affected by what I wear, but they are. I get compliments from other women, questions asking where I bought said item, and smiles from guys. (As a single woman, that’s not a bad thing!)
