Gingham, Madras, and Pleats

Last night was the boyfriend's birthday. Please excuse the barrage of couples photos...

{on him- Ted Baker shirt, High Cotton bow tie, Gap Jeans, Converse sneakers, J. Crew belt}
{on me- J. Crew dress, belt, earrings, and ring, Guess heels, Urban Outfitters watch, Madewell bangle}

I got Alex this bow tie as one of his birthday gifts. I fell in love with High Cotton Ties while on the hunt for the perfect casual bow tie; the small company is based out of North Carolina and when I found their website I was instantly reminded of the classic southern styling I love so much. This particular bow tie is reversible--one side is madras and the other is chambray. I'm slightly obsessed. 

Happy Birthday!


  1. You two are adorable. That's all I've got for you. Oh, and that dress? Perfect.

  2. OK you two are so adorable together! Loving this bow tie and your cute dress! :)
