Balancing act



oxford: thrifted
slacks: New York & Company
heels: Target
hair flower: H&M
necklace: gifted
ring: American Eagle

I often try to achieve a sense of balance in my outfits. Sometimes it's about balancing out a heavy, full skirt with a slim top. Other times, it's about brightening a neutral palate with a few pops of color. With this outfit, it was all about adding feminine touches to an otherwise masculine ensemble of a white Oxford and slacks. I thought the heels, ring and hair accessory did a pretty good job.

By the way, I have a sale alert for you guys from one of my sponsors! From now until the end of July, eShakti is offering Verbal Mélange readers 10% off their orders with the promo code VE24ART. The best part? You can even get 10% off the 40% off sale items.

In other news, I have no idea why I'm not smiling in these photos. And I accidentally edited the top photo too purple. Oh, well. Guess they can't all be winners, haha!


  1. I love the hair accessory on you :) Super cute! Balancing can be hard but you did a great job in the fem/masc balance of this outfit :)

  2. Love it, can't wait to see what you do next! Come check out my blog, maybe we can follow each other!
