Well Dressed Explorer

Red peter pan collar floral dress, American Eagle. Navy utility jacket, Converse One Star via Target. Nude fishnets, lace up boots, F21. Fossil camera bag purse.

     "Girly tough". "Edgy and sweet". "Feminine and menswear". While all of these combinations are trite, two word descriptions that are overused by magazines to describe contrasting elements of an outfit, contradiction is certainly a fast way to look stylish. Dressing in head to toe ruffles and pastels and bows might look more like a costume than a "girly" ensemble. I'm amazed at those who can pull these looks off without hesitation, but I prefer to mix the facets of both my style and my personality into my outfits. I have to be able to roam far and wide in boots, but dresses are still my favorite items of clothing. I'm not sure what my "two word combination" would be, but I'm fine with incorporating as many elements of myself as I can into one outfit, no labels needed.

You look really lovely in red, and I like the contrasting elements you have going on. I'm not a big fan of the cliche terms either, but the concept really hits home. Beautiful photos!
