It’s been a while since I talked trends. Let’s talk, shall we? First up, lets talk about the trends I love from this summer.

They have been in the loop since December, but they have persisted until now. And I have to tell the world the love that dare not speak its name. Bows. I LOVE bows!

In actuality, this isn’t exactly a secret. Over the last few months I have compulsively stocked up on bow-shaped-anything like a squirrel collecting nuts for winter. Here are some of my favorite pieces from these last two seasons (and yes, they are from Kate Spade):

Skinny Mini Bow Bangle. (My super nice parents got this for a birthday present last year!) Kate Spade $88.
