Bows! Bows! Bows! I love bows almost as much as I love a bright pop of pink, but for some reason, the older you get, the less you get to wear bows and pink. This skirt makes it possible though, with it’s tiny bot knot detail worked subtly over the front panel and it’s pop of pink edging, well, Why Bow Knot?
