This dress that I picked up at one of my favorite beach boutiques was one of those off-the-rack wonders. It's the kind of thing where you know just by the touch that it is going to be perfect.
I tried it on, but I recall that just by looking at it on the hanger I didn't have to. I'm thinking it is a definite first day of school outfit!
I paired it with a borrowed military jacket from Banana Republic, which added a masculine edge. The floral scarf - also borrowed - mixed it up a lot because it is so feminine. The nautical stripes, the classic bag and pumps...this is a really mixed look! (thanks to my sister A for the borrowed pieces!)So there you have it - mixed media: masculine, feminine, nautical and classic.
