Whenever I wear lace, I feel really girly. There’s something about the fabric that screams femininity to me. It’s hard for me to be girly sometimes. As a child, I was always a tomboy and as an adult, surrendering to my womanhood can be a challenge. Don’t get me wrong, I love being a woman, but there’s something about “feeling girly” that makes me cringe a little. I think it’s the idea that girly equates weak or helpless. I’d like to turn that notion on it’s head and look as girly as powerful and fierce. The ability to embrace femininity and be confident in being a woman and all that comes with it: that’s power. That’s bad-ass. Just some thoughts on womanhood for this here Wednesday.

  • Honestly, I think this “feminine” look is refreshing. The whole super bad-ass, oversized-everything, men-inspired looks are cool and all, but I prefer classic feminine looks at the end of the day like yours. I think women like Michelle Obama and her daughters or Kate Middleton make strong cases for graceful, elegant, romantic and “feminine” style being representative of strong, powerful, fiercely bad-ass women like you or me! 😀

    P.S., Love how you gave such an elegant dress that comfy edge with the sandals.

    • I LOVE THIS! Thank you for taking the time out to write such a thoughtful and eloquent comment. Much appreciated and totally agree! I love dressing like a boy but classic, timeless, feminine outfits are definitely the ultimate. xo

  • This is such a summery look. I love it and I can’t wait to be able to wear the same! The weather here is such a shame!

    • Thank you! It’s funny because LA is suddenly quite chilly these pass few days. Just when I thought the warmer temps were here, they left. lol

  • Just got some new Dr. Scholls in last week – love those sandals!

    • YAY they are so comfy! xo


    Verry nice! You look awsome with those sandals.

    I love how well said you made feminine and growth sound in this piece today. For I also struggled a lot with shedding my tomboy/childish years to growing into my womanhood which has been a struggling journey for me, so I love and can relate so much to this post, thank you for posting it!

    • Love that! Thank YOU for sharing! xo
