    Tied up in Knots

    Let me tell you a story. This story involves a girl, a shirt, and a problematic situation involving buttons. You see, this girl loves to wear pretty button-up shirts tied up, and thinks they look swell.

    Just a note.

    Hi. I don’t have much time, but I just wanted to let you all know that I’m still alive. And that I feel very fashion-blogger-y today. It’s my first time mixing florals. I love it.
