safe landing.

after yesterday's bright colors,
i toned it down and came back to neutrals. 
this dress incorporates evvrything feminine...
lace, florals, and chiffon-y ruffles.
balanced with something slightly more masculine,
like this military jacket, 
i feel girly but not over the top.
this has brought me safely back to my comfort zone.
(gilie frilly dress, available at oomph; jacket, old navy)
