I went to a party recently, and I decided it was bowtie-worthy. What does bowtie-worthy mean? It means I'm willing to tie one on, so to speak. See, I have a love/hate relationship with bowties - love the quirkiness and novelty of them, but have such a difficult time tying them. They always end up slightly askew, but I've decided that maybe that's my thing - just a little crooked on purpose.
I also took the opportunity to wear my new-ish black tweed pants. I wanted tweed pants badly this season (see my fall shopping list here), but wasn't sure how much wear I'd get out of them. Luckily it's been cold enough to wear them at night, so they've come in super handy. The rest of the outfit is made up of old standbys - my tried and true charcoal boiled wool cardigan, chambray "tux" shirt, black lace ups, and of course, skull socks. Who doesn't need a pair of skull socks?
