 I can already tell you that one of my favorite things to do with tops this spring will be to tie a bow using the bottom ends of a blouse. It’s a fun and somewhat unexpected alternative to tucking in a blouse or leaving it open, and it also takes care of the too-long-top problem. Tying a bow also helps show off the shirt underneath, which I like with this outfit because I’m kind of obsessed over polka dots.

This handbag is the newest in my collection, and I have to say that I have been looking for a neutral bag for several years now. It sounds crazy that the right one was so hard to find, but  I knew I would know it when I saw it. Then I saw this Kate Spade bag online a few weeks ago. I went to the store to see it in person, and it was even better than I thought! The color is going to work well with many of my outfits, and the foldover zip top style is too cute! If I didn’t already have a black handbag, I would have wanted this one in black too. (I’m sure my husband is glad that I already have one.)
