Constitution Marina

The cold shoulder trend has been pretty popular for quite a while now, so when I found this cute top (for under $20) before my trip to the East Coast I snatched it up! I love the combination of the ruffles, cold shoulders, and the fact that the shirt is pop-ver style at the top and can be buttoned or kept more open. It’s such a fun and unique piece and it’s become a new staple piece within my wardrobe!


What I Wore

Striped Off-the-Shoulder Ruffle Top  –  White JeansMosaic Chandelier Earrings (On Sale!)  –  Silver Tassel Necklace  –  Dainty Necklace  – Silver “Friendship” Bracelet ℅  –  Silver Cuff  –  Louis Vuitton Neverfull  –  Platinum Sandals


I decided to pair a fun pair of chandelier earrings with this look. I actually wore this same pair of earrings for my senior formal back in April(more…)

Video: East Coast Adventure

Earlier this summer, my family and I vacationed on the East Coast and stayed in both Boston and Cape Cod. During that time I did a little bit of casual vlogging to take in the pretty views and cool places we visited. This video is the result and I’m so excited to finally share my East Coast vlog with all of you! Enjoy this #bowtifultravels vlog and be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel to see any future videos that I post and check out those I’ve shared in the past.

Acorn Street

On my recent trip to Boston and Cape Cod I was awestruck by so much of the gorgeous architecture throughout both places, but one of the most picturesque spots that I saw, by far, was Acorn Street in the Beacon Hill neighborhood of Boston. Cobblestones, red brick, and window boxes; what more could a girl ask for?!


What I Wore

Knit Cardigan    Dusty Rose Dress (On sale for less than $25!)    Rose Gold “Y” Necklace (No longer available, similar style here.)    Dainty Diamond Necklace    Filigree Earrings (Similar.)    Cross Bracelet    Pave Bracelet    Chronograph Watch    Rose Gold Ring  –  Crossbody Tote    Nude Booties (No longer available, similar style here.)


During my time in Boston, it was relatively humid, but that was honestly a welcome change from how chilly the spring and summer in Chicago had been up to that point. Walking around the city made it feel like summer was truly, finally here!  (more…)
