Feminine meets Masculine

Pin It

I absolutely love this time of year - flowers are blooming, breezy beautiful weather, everything feels new and fresh. Personally, I think spring allows a lot more options for playing with your personal style. I absolute adore this H&M floral dress I picked up a few weeks ago (still available in-store). This is one of my favorite recent purchases and I'm sure it'll become my go- to spring/summer dress.

What I am wearing:
Dress: H&M - size 2
Jacket: Jack by BB Dakota Shelton - size S (buy similar)
Shoes: Report via TJMaxx (buy similar)
Belt: H&M (buy similar)
Necklace: Amrita Singh Montauk
Lipstick: Revlon ColorBurst in Lollipop

In this outfit, I paired a military jacket with an ultra-feminine dress to balance out the respective masculine and feminine qualities of each piece. This jacket is not only great for when it is a little breezy outside but also adds a bit of edginess to any outfit.

Happy Monday!

You look great Sydney! The dress fits you nicely and is very flattering on you. Love the yellow belt too!

This look is adorable on you- love the feminine/rugged contrasts. XO


I love that dress. I saw them in store -- great quality -- but not in my size :(. Oh well! Love that you paired it with a tough jacket! I'm inspired to have more fun with clothes this Spring!


What a great dress! I do like the military jacket too. It makes the dress more casual when you just want to dress and relax.

I can't wait for a H&M to open up in Houston!

Not real fond of the boots, but the dress and belt are surely stylish. I'd say you did a great job of adding toughness to an otherwise feminine and girly outfit.

With Each Passing Day

When I first saw this dress in the store I didn't give much thought to it. The dress is very flattering on you. I love how you add military jacket to give the outfit an edge.


You look lovely and like how youve paired it with the military Jacket and the shoes!

Sydney, you look amazing in this printed dress! I love how you added a pop of additional colour on your waist by adding the thin belt.

Btw, the maxi dress is still available at H&M! I just purchased it recently and saw it yesterday :) It's $19.95 and it's in the basic section

I really love this dress Sydney! The florals are so pretty. ;-)


Saw this dress at H&M but passed because of the bold print. It look great on you though and love how you paired it with a personal touch! How do you find cute shoes at TJMaxx?! I love window shopping there but can never find anything =/


Absolutely gorgeous!! I love the masculine touches! :)
