i fell in love with this lavender blouse from AKIRA as soon as i saw it on their website. i just love the flowy, feminine feel of it. the lace panels are beautiful. i wore the blouse with my new favorite boots that i found at the thrift store recently. i can’t imagine myself ever feeling comfortable wearing a feminine outfit from head to toe. i guess it’s because for the majority of my life i’ve hated dresses and make-up and anything “girly.” of course that has changed in in the past eight (maybe?…weird number) years as i’ve grown comfortable with myself and making all the pretty little girly things work for me.
