Put a tie on it

tie as belt

Striped shirt, Forever21 [similar] // Skirt, Forever21 [similar] // Belt, Jos A. Bank [similar 1; 2] // Pearls, vintage // Watch, Urban Outfitters // Bracelets, mishmash, comment for details! // Purse, Jesslyn Blake [similar] // Brogues, ASOS [similar]

Outfit inspiration here is totally jacked from girlsack, and I’ve even attempted to put it together once before here. I just could not get over how cute the idea of a belt-as-bow was. Plus any excuse to wear a lace skirt and navy and white stripes? I’m there.

Neck and Bow Ties for Daddy’s Day

Father’s Day is coming up… and while the hot pick for dads this year is one of the fancy new e-readers, I know Greguine, after hours of sitting on his computer working every day, isn’t one to really appreciate electronic reading on his downtime.

I’ve been getting my dad ties as a gift for as long as I can remember– it’s just hard to go wrong with them!  So in case you, too, are going to go with a tie for Father’s Day, here are my favorites.  No, I don’t really think my own father would wear many of these preppy picks, but perhaps this will serve as a little bit of encouragement!
