Blazer-Zara (seen here), Dress-c/o Lulu's, Handbag-c/o Foley and Corina, Shoes-c/o Lulu's, Sunglasses-Karen Walker, Necklaces-c/o EmersonMade & House of Harlow 1960, Bracelets-Forever 21 and vintage, Ring-vintage 

My style is very feminine but I prefer to mix it up with masculine pieces to keep it from looking overly saccharine. That's why a chic men's inspired blazer is a huge staple in my closet. I have them in navy, black, cream, tan, pastel pink, and gray. I love the contrast that this blazer gives to this romantic dress and my Foley and Corina handbag adds a nice bold pop of color!

I also tend to gravitate towards the more feminine side of things. I'm making more of an effort to infuse some more masculine accents into my wardrobe this spring. You're a great inspiration :) xoxo Marissa

Amanda Blair said...

I love this maxi dress and I loved the way you chose to photograph it, with the sun shining through it. Truly gorgeous!

When I first read this post, I did a double take bc it sounded so much like Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere. You and Emily are the only people I've seen use the word saccharine, haha. i think I will be adding it into my vocab though...love it!

S.M. said...

Your bag is the most gorgeous colour, and I love your nail polish too, it's really the small details that can make an outfit fabulous.
