White Eyelet



In keeping with my boy-meets-girl vibe from Friday's post, I decided to do something similar for a day of running errands around town.  The delicate eyelet lace of this top is perfect with distressed denim, but unfortunately it was much too hot for jeans this weekend.  So, I substituted in these trouser shorts + tasseled loafers, then added a dash of under-the-collar sparkle with this rhinestone necklace.  The masculine pieces help balance out the sweetness of the feminine top, while the high pony + peter pan collar give it a slightly retro feel.







What I'm wearing:
c/o SheInside Top, Jennifer Lopez Shorts (or similar here)Pink & Pepper Loafers, Banana Republic bag (similar here or here), c/o T+J Designs cuff & necklace (25% off sitewide with code TJPSW25)Nails: Essie Boom Boom Room, Lips: L'Oreal Colour Riche Lip Balm Pink Satin

Have you thought about making this a series? I love your feminine style but I am not one to wear head-to-toe girly things, so I love that you're mixing with more masculine pieces!

Brianna Harris said...

Do you have any advice on picking out lip color? And pairing lip color with outfits? Your lip color always looks so flawless and beautiful with all your outfits (but never too matchy) and your skin tone...I am in total envy of this! :)

Kimberly said...

Great question Brianna! I usually base it on my mood or the overall vibe I'm going for. I typically vary between red, hot pink, bright orange, coral & light pink - these are shades that I've determined look best with my skin tone/hair color. But I think even if your top is red and you wear red lipstick, that's okay - sometimes it's fun to match! :)

Kimberly
