Tough + Sweet



Though a LWD can easily stand on it's own without much need for accessorizing (on hot days, I've worn this one with my favorite fedora & flat sandals), sometimes it's nice to balance out a feminine style with more masculine pieces.  I scored this camo jacket on major clearance last week and just love the tough edge it gives to girly items in my closet. Add some layered necklaces + lace-up heels and it's a fun way to modernize a classic embroidered dress.







What I'm wearing:
Gap jacket (similar here or here), c/o Dorothy Perkins Dress (20% off using code DRESS20), c/o ShoeMint HeelsNecklaces: Mango (similar here or here) & Forever 21 (similar), Mango clutch (similar here or here), Ray-Ban wayfarers (similar), Lips: Revlon Super Lustrous Siren
