Modern Day Little Bo Peep | Dearest Lou

Modern Day Little Bo Peep

For some reason this outfit reminds me of Little Bo Peep. Maybe it's the cute pink bow and the scenery.. all I'm missing is the shepherd's crook. Chicnova recently sent me an item to review, I originally picked a different shirt but was mistakenly sent this. I emailed them to let them know and was pleased with how quickly they responded. They apologized for the mix up and said that they would send me the correct item. I thought that was very kind of them and it's good to know that they have excellent customer service.  To be completely honest this shirt is extremely tight around my bust and luckily this handy dandy bow covered that up. I love the vintage-y feel of the blouse and I'm happy that I was able to squeeze into it for a few outfit pictures (;

I've been slacking big time on the outfit posts that I could have sworn that I had already posted a look with my new favorite boots but turns out I haven't.

The cheapskate in me would rather go thrifting for a similar pair of leather boots but thrifting is time consuming. It's even more time consuming when you have a demanding little munchkin and ends up taking twice as long. Thrifting also is a hit or miss, sometimes you walk out with treasures and other times you just wasted your time and walk out with nothing. I had a gift card from Christmas that I hadn't completely used up, so I decided to go ahead and take this opportunity and splurged on these Steve Madden boots.

I always wondered what all the Steve Madden hype was about but now I feel like I have a pretty good idea. Not only are these boots pretty, they are SO comfortable. I have a feeling I will be wearing these a ton this Autumn/Winter.

What I wore: Top, c/o Chicnova// Skirt, thrifted// Steve Madden Boots, Nordstrom
