Black and White; Masculine and Feminine.

Sometimes, a girl has to feel and look sassy, elegant and a little masculine, yet keep her girly self in check. I think this outfit achieved the above. I like the fact that it is the Classic Black+White combo. The houndstooth cropped pants are sort of masculine and make me feel strong every time I wear them. I decided to wear them with Oxfords because every time I see these pants, oxford shoes, loafers or moccasins is what I picture with them. While that's where the masculine part of this outfit ends,... the off-white cardigan with the beautiful embellished black flowers is nothing less than girly, pretty & dainty. As is my black, rosette-trimmed headband. =)
