elle bow room

hello Ruffled Romance readers! my name is Elspeth, and I'm the blogger behind 'elle bow room'. I'm so excited to be swapping with my friend Molly (yes, we met in real life many years ago) and her sister today. Like Molly & MacKenzie, I'm also a Carolina girl! Right now I'm living in Chicago, and incorporating my southern tendencies into a comfortable city-style. This outfit felt chic, colorful and casual to me, so I hope it inspires you to create something simple and crisp from the items in your closet! 
I also love when outfits have a story behind them; the chambray blouse and navy wooden beaded necklace I'm wearing were purchased on a trip I took to Spain 5 years ago. I bought the top from Zara when the store was only in Spain! Love at first sight, and that's something that hasn't changed.
blouse: Zara {similar} // pants:  J. Brand  // scarf: J. Crew {other color} // bag: Louis Vuitton 'Artsy' // wedges: Tory Burch 'Sally' {similar style, on sale now} // necklace: unknown, purchased in Spain // watch: Michael Kors // bracelets: David Yurman (blue topaz, amethyst & gold buckle) & Cartier // David Yurman (blue topaz, stack & pave), Cartier & YSL 'Arty' thanks Molly & Mac for swapping today! keep up the beautiful blogging :)
