The Perfect Mix of Masculine and Feminine

This feels so right for fall, for contrasting with dresses and ladylike blouses. I’ve been wearing my watch a lot lately (it’s one of the watches shown), and I think I’m going to pick up a pair of black heels or wedges since I no longer have any black shoes. I’ve been carrying a diaper bag for the past two and a half years and I’ll need it for a while still, but I’ve been eying some of these brown leather lovelies.

Which shoes, watch, and bag would you choose? I’m pretty into all of these this time around, but I’ll show you my choice for each below.

  1. Martina Patent Wedges *
  2. Rambler’s Legacy *
  3. Henry Leather Watch
  4. ‘Easy Reader’ Leather Strap Watch
  5. Faux-Leather Saddle Bag
  6. Petite Briefcase Bag
  7. Two-Tone Horn/Gold Jet Set Watch
  8. Peony Pumps
  9. Niina Mary-Janes
  10. Women’s Crossbody
  11. Rose Gold Watch *

* I’d go with 1, 2, and 11. What about you?

    I would go with 1, 2, 7.

    I saw that Michael Kors watch (along with a couple others in the same line that I really liked) in the store a while back and I’ve been thinking about it ever since!

    Loving this look for fall. Just picked up a men’s style blazer. Looks great with some skinny jeans and heels. Love those Mary Janes though….

    I’m loving 6, 8, and especially 11… rose gold is my favorite! 6 and 11 are going on my Christmas list for sure, and the shoes are coming home with me after work today ;-)

    1, 5 and 7…I just bought #7 and it looks sooooo good, it just blends into your skin tone and with a bit of shimmer from the gold accents, I’m really enjoying it since I mostly wear silver tones this is totally new for me!!

    I miss when Coach purses were simple and classic like #2. I have one in teal and still use it all the time. Today, their purses are way too trendy and feel cheaply made.

    I love 9, 5 and 11. Though my mother always told me not to wear ankle strap shoes b/c she said they would make me legs look short so I can never bring myself to buy them now.

    I’d go with 1, 4, 5. Also, love the nude Nina Mary-Janes from your last style round-up better than the black in this post. If only I had the $.

    […] this is one way to style it, but it would go well with these shoes, watches, and purses too. Or with tights and boots, and maybe a belt. How would you wear it? Style […]
