Pussy Bow Blouse and Grey Jeans

Inspired by Angie's blog today I had to pull out a pussy bow blouse to wear for my new drivers' license photo. I see that I need a hair cut and to watch the video on how to tie the bow! Should I tie the bow lower? I usually wear this blouse with a black leather pencil skirt and red patent pumps. Does it work with these grey jeans? Your thoughts and styling advice are appreciated.

    Joy, you make the bow blouse look super cool. I like it semi-tucked with the gray jeans. The rolled legs are great, too, showing off the ankle strap shoes. Fun look for a DL photo! (Too bad they aren't full-length shots, huh? Don't they know how important it is to get the shoes in the picture??)

    So cute, Joy! I like the playful rolled up hems--it makes the blouse look more fun. Thanks for reminding me that I have this blouse too--I always feel too "proper" in it. I think I'm going to try it with rolled hems tomorrow :) Thanks for the inspiration!

    Sharan, thank you for your encouragement. Yes, full length photos might be an improvement, especially when it comes to those awful holograms. For the first time I was asked to remove my specs.
    Kellygirl, please post your outfit when you wear the blouse. I felt more relaxed in it with the jeans.

    Absolutely.  Love the shoes, too.

    I agree with Firecracler for full length shot you really look gorgeous, lovely blouse, I like the shoes too

    Lovely outfit, Joy. Echoing Sharan -- too bad the DMV can't take a full length pic or at least add a "shoe shot". The overall look is so fabulous.

    Great styling, Joy, it all really works well together.  Cute blouse, too.

    Great outfit, and great blouse for a driver's license photo! I bet it also looks fab with your black leather skirt.

    This looks great! I like that style bow blouse better than the classic button-down type. Love it with the jeans.

    This is so cute. Looks great with jeans. And those shoes are awesome too. Also, I like your hair this length!

    You look great. Such a fun, trendy outfit.
    I think where you've tied the bow is good.

    I really like that blouse - I'm not drawn to bows myself, but the pattern on that blouse plus a bow is a good combo.  Good choice for a DL photo!

    The blouse is beautiful and looks perfect with the gray jeans. Cute shoes, too.

    You look great! I might be rethinking this type of blouse.

    This outfit makes you look about 42 years old. (I hope you take that as a compliment!). This is super cute. Makes me think about trying a blouse like this.

    Love the top again :) ! You look fab!

    This stunning blouse looks gorgeous on you, Joy! I bet it made for a super DL pic.

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Thank you for your encouraging comments. Angie, a "killer"! I am thrilled and humbled. Nebraskim, 42 is a huge compliment!

    You look gorgeous!

    Love this. You look so peppy!

  • Summer replied 1 year ago

    The bow detail looks quite subtle against the pattern, but I think you've tied it beautifully.  The blouse is gorgeous, and I love the way you have styled it.
