Spring first blossoms are here and with them the first warmer days we’ve had in a long time. To celebrate I took my white jeans out of the closet and paired them with a pink sweater and my pink loafers. To finish the look, I tied a velvet ribbon into a bow around my neck, for a sweet final touch!
You know how much I love bows. I made myself a bow sweater recently (see here) also using velvet ribbon, and I own a fair share of blouses and dresses with bows/bow ties (see here, here and here). I also just finished making a new spring/summer blouse, the ultimate bow statement piece – I’ll be showing you that later…
But back to this look. I love the combination of white and pink and for a sunny day white jeans were a great choice. As I mentioned before, I found it really hard to find interesting sweaters in the stores. I have a few basics like this pink one, and even though I like the color, it just lacks in detail. Playing with velvet ribbon is a fun way to turn any basic sweater into something a little more special. I bought the velvet ribbon at the local haberdashery store – you can get it in different colors and sizes depending on the effect you want to create.
