The weather in Michigan has just been awful the past couple of days. I'm so glad I was able to get this outfit in before the monsoon hit. 

I've been experimenting with ties lately. I love the idea of a tie; I'd love to find some to wear traditionally, but recently I've been trying to find new uses for them. Earlier this week I died to wear one as a headband, and this outfit I'm using it as a belt. I love the way these ties add a little something special to my outfits, making them only slightly more interesting with out taking away from them. They also add some preppy-ness to the outfit which I just must have. I'm hoping to come up with some other interesting ways to wear ties, I just haven't yet.

I'm also wearing a v-neck sweater from J. Crew, a thrifted skirt, wool tights from Target, and heels from Target. I wanted to do something different with my hair so I decided to wear it in a bun and place a bow on my head.
