Over the weekend, Justin and I went to Kohl's because we had a 30% off coupon to take advantage of. Justin is always able to find fantastic deals at Kohl's. Me, not nearly as much. However, this past weekend I did walk away with a couple of items. One of them being this bow sweater that I wore on Monday.

I found this sweater by chance on the clearance rack, and I am obsessed with it. It was already 70% off, and then with my additional 30% off, I took this sweater home for only $10.50! I know that I will only get a little bit of wear out of it before spring, but it is super cute and a total J. Crew look for less. At the price, I couldn't pass it up. Kohl's website has it listed for $20 (still a steal), but it is $15 in the store. They also have an oatmeal color that wasn't in my store. I probably would have bought both!
Long story short, this sweater inspired me to do a little "Trendsday Wednesday" post featuring the ever-popular bow. Who do you think of when you think of the bow? Well, Kate Spade, of course! Oh, how I love Kate Spade! The new spring arrivals do not disappoint and are all about the well-placed bow. No one does the bow better than Kate. I had some fun online and found some Kate Spade-insprired bow pieces to help you achieve the look for less.
I also love to keep a look out on sites like Gilt and Rue La La for Kate Spade items. Last year, I scored these All Wrapped Up Pavé Stud earrings and the matching ring for 50% off on Rue La La. But, my favorite bow ring of all only cost me $17.99! My last piece of bow inspiration for you is the Hello Fab Diamonds & Bow Ring! Seriously, I love this ring, and the price is fantastic! It's the perfect little bow accent for your everyday look.
Well-placed bows are stealing the spotlight this spring, but they are also classic and timeless. I love that there are so many ways to incorporate a bow into our looks. The bow can be prim and proper or it can also be elegantly edgy. How many different ways will you incorporate the well-placed bow into your looks this spring?
