Red Bow Button Up

So this button-up with embroidered bows has been flying off the shelves, and I couldn’t get an outfit post up in time. I saw the sizes disappearing after I had it on my radar post a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, I didn’t shoot the top until I was home in Florida and now it’s only available in a few sizes. But I still have some good news for you! I have a code for Draper James that you can use for 20% off one full-price item through December 25th: CarlythePrepster20.

The top is so cute! I hope Draper James brings it back in other prints over the next few seasons. I love a good button up, and the tiny bows are the best little details.

(I did find this embroidered snowflake button up and this embroidered skier one too.)

This red skirt is from last fall. (It’s also twisted a tiny bit in every single photo, oh well.) There’s a version of it out this year, nearly sold out of course, but I’ve seen it on the sale rack in stores! I also found this adorable scalloped red skirt and this red wrap skirt too.

I love the idea of having a casual and cute outfit that’s fun for the holidays!

I love the way you make this top either look festive or chic so you can wear that in holiday season and normal days.

Thank you for the inspiration…. jealous of the nice weather in the picture by the way. It’s dark and cold here…argh….



Cute outfit, Carly, festive but subtle. What is the lipstick you’re wearing for this shoot? It’s very flattering, and looks red without being RED (you know?).


Love the detail in your ponytail here — maybe a post diving into simple but “upgraded” hairstyles? I always feel like my standard ponytail is so boring!

Look how cute that top is (this entire outfit altogether, really)! I think it’s a blessing in disguise that you twisted the skirt a little because if you hadn’t done so, we wouldn’t see just how cute the side detail is! 😉

I know it’s obviously not the same, but Old Navy is selling similar button ups to these right now! I saw a bumble bee one that was too cute!

Love reading you every day, thank you for being a positive and calm moment in my hectic days!
