WIW 04.23-26 [mini spring heat wave]

We recently had a lovely week of unseasonably hot weather -- in the mid 80s, which is a solid 20-30F degrees warmer than usual for this time of year here. It was fun to pull out both old and new summer pieces, almost like a little summer test run. One of my summer goals this year is to wear dresses more but no worries I will continue to be a solidly representing member of Team Shorts.

photo #2 has a new jacket, rest are oldies but goodies. Loved the vibe this outfit has, would like more of it. Can't really see them but worn with big hammered gold hoops (they're in the Finds).

photo #3 is a go-to favorite outfit I've been wearing for a few years now (since 2015 maybe?). Updated with boho rose gold accents and new sunnies.

photo #4 is a mix of oldies worn in a new (?) way. A little hectic ^^ A rare outfit accented with silver. Ended up a lot warmer than expected so I was mostly sans jacket.

photo #5 is mostly newer (watermelon jacket, pink patterned dress). I got this cotton sack dress mainly for those really hot days when clothing just doesn't sound good and I think it will work really nicely for that!

    These are great! I love the booties in #1, the pattern mixing in #3, the dresses in #2 and #4. Your hair is also looking fabulous.

  • Joy replied 5 years ago

    Such lovely variety.  I want the jacket in 1 and the chevron top in 4

  • jussie replied 5 years ago

    Lovely outfits- each one is nice. My favorite piece is that watermelon denim jacket. I really like your use of different textures, colours and shapes, and even different drapey-ness.

  • Angie replied 5 years ago

    KILLER all round.

    #5 is my fave, sweet Aida. Delicious enough to eat, and I'm loving all the flats. 

  • Mirjana replied 5 years ago

    Lovely outfits all round, how nice that you shared them! I especially love #5 beautiful color combinations, and great chevron top. You look stunning all round sweet Aida.

  • Mainelady replied 5 years ago

    All of these outfits are wonderful . I love the variety and how you mix textures. Outfit number 5 is my favorite on you.

  • Mirjana replied 5 years ago

    I also like #3 dress and duster, beautiful.

  • CocoLion replied 5 years ago

    Another one who loves #5.  Those are such delicious colors.

    I'm also loving #2 because you wear black so well.

    The wild hair look suits you.

    Super outfits - my favorite is #5.

  • Lynn replied 5 years ago

    Great outfits, Aida. I really like the print mixing in #4 but my fave overall is #5. 

  • Runcarla replied 5 years ago

    Gosh! There is so much to like about this series. #4 is my favourite. Love the stripe on stripe and the muted steel blue of the toppers works so well with the dusty rose of the shorts. #5 is pretty fantastic to. Love the fray/fringe on the dress and the vibrancy of the jacket.

  • Jaime replied 5 years ago

    Hmm, they are all my favorites for different reasons. The jacket in the first one is perfect. Drapey yet structured. The pink and peachy look works as well as the soft and light and the geometric mix. You are a genius at picking out the one perfect piece from anywhere. 

  • Kari replied 5 years ago

    Oooh, have we seen you in watermelon before? What a great and happy color with your skin tone and hair! I love the shorts outfit too.

  • Aida replied 5 years ago

    Thank you all so much for the lovely comments :D

    Jussie and Mainelady, having lots of texture makes a happy outfit for me! I always make it a priority.

    Momo, the beginning of each season always feels a bit tricky, doesn't it? I definitely need a little time each season to get back into the groove.

    Denise, I've been slowly working my black pieces back in a bit more the past couple years since it is one of my best neutrals. More comfortable with it now, and feel I can wear it in a well-intentioned way.

    Kari, I really like watermelon but unfortunately don't have much of it, mainly because I need a very warm shade which doesn't seem to come around all that often. The icier fuchsia versions seem more prevalent.

  • Helena replied 5 years ago

    So beautiful, and that watermelon shade is stunning on you.

  • Lisa replied 5 years ago

    You have a lovely collection of spring dresses, I can't pick a favorite.

  • Ledonna N. replied 5 years ago

    4 is killing me in a great way.  I want to borrow a version of that look to recreate for myself. 

  • Aida replied 5 years ago

    Thank you ladies! :D

  • Katerina replied 5 years ago

    Wow, you are an outfit genius. These are all so sophisticated, interesting and look effortless all at the same time. Brilliant. The colour combination in no 5 is very beatiful on you.

  • texstyle replied 5 years ago

    Really great outfits again Aida - I esp. love the light topper outfit with the light shoes - makes your hair really star in the outfit. But the new jacket is equally fab.

  • Aida replied 5 years ago

    Thank you Katerina and Texstyle!

    Tex, going all light to highlight my hair remains a solid favorite tactic. I don't think I'll ever tire of it :)

  • Stagiaire Fash replied 5 years ago

    I love your mix of new with old faves. The kimono jacket in 3 is great. I can completely relate to days it’s so hot that clothes don’t sound good at all
