Mix & Match: Feminine & Masculine Details

On Mommy: Aritzia lace top, Gap boyfriend blazer, J Brand jeans, Pour La Victoire boots, Louis Vuitton bag, Hermes & J.Crew bracelets, Cartier watch, Nashelle necklace and earrings
On A: Gap dress, shirt & tights, Gingersnaps shoes
There are those boots again! Some of you commented that you liked the black stripe on the boot. It’s actually a double wrapped black belt. I like that it adds a bit flair to the otherwise simple boot but I’m also glad it’s removable. Love the versatility…kind of reminds me of those watches from back in the day with the interchangeable straps and covers. Anyone know what I’m talking about?
I was giving A a bath the morning I took these pics and since she loves playing in the tub forever, I decided to curl my hair instead of my usual activity (reading US Weekly). As you can tell, I only watch and read the highest caliber of media. I’m waiting to grow out my hair so I can have Kardashian worthy waves down to my waist. Although I’ll probably only have the time and patience to curl it every 6 months or so.

I paired this feminine top with a boyfriend blazer. I love how the lace looks next to the prep school buttons and also love the texture lace brings to the look.

Moving on…who saw Real Housewives of BH last night?? Camille doesn’t even seem that sad about Kelsey. I like how she was cheerily discussing dress options when Kelsey walked in. Oh and love Kyle even more. Wondering how many zeros were on that check to Farrah…

  1. Love the contrast between the two opposites (my favorite too!) and your little girl is the splitting image of you! too cute!

  2. Great pics awesome outfit!!!! what kind of camera do you use?

  3. I am loving lace lately, especially with more masculine details like a blazer. Well done! And your daughter might be the cutest little kid I’ve seen in a while.

  4. Elle & Jenn: Thanks! You girls are so sweet!!

    Erica: 90% of the pics on this blog are taken with my canon s95. It’s a point and shoot but takes excellent quality photos. Supposedly, a lot of professional photographers use this camera when they don’t feel like lugging their huge slr’s around. we have an slr too but rarely use it.

  5. Love the way you paired the lace with a black layer underneath, would never think to do that. Overall one of my favorite looks on you.

    Do you do any color editting on your pics or does your camera do that. Need a new cam and would love one with color effect.

  6. These pictures are beautiful Jiye…you look gorgeous!

  7. Such a fantastic blog and as for you and your daughter… absolutely stunning!!

  11. I’m trying to grow my hair “Kardashian-long” too LOL!
    Love the outfit – especially the lace top!

  12. Love your lace top!!!

  13. i love the faded coloring of these picture! it’s so beautiful and artistic. and your hair is absolutely beautiful curled! i still need to figure out how to curl my hair with a curling iron so that the curl will actually stay.

    and the lace top juxtaposed with the blazer is wonderful. you’ve given me some inspiration of my own to try out now!

    cute and little

  14. Love the lace and boots combo- I’ve been meaning to wear a new(ish) lace shirt w/ my boots lately, might have to break that out this weekend!

  15. What a great and comfy outfit! I love the way you curled your hair and it makes the whole look more polished! =)

  16. Amazing outfit dear! Soooo lovely!

  17. N: I use Photoshop Lightroom and use some presets to post process. Not sure if the camera can do it but I don’t think so.

    Abby & Kileen: I used to think my hair didn’t curl well either. It would never stay even though I would spray the life out of it. But, after talking to a hair stylist friend, it turned out I just wasn’t making the curling iron hot enough or holding it long enough. There are some good tutorials on youtube too!

  18. Hi PearlsAndGreenTea,

    I stumbled across your blog via Google when I searched under Hermes. Your blog is lovely and you’re so photogenic! Your little girl is so adorable too.

  23. love it. great juxtaposition between the girly and the tough. =)

  24. I love mixing feminine and masculine looks. The lace is so lovely on you! I definitely saw RHOBH. It’s my guilty pleasure. There are just no words to accurately describe Camille. I think she might just be on a planet all on her own, haha.
