WIW 06.17 (inspired by Rae)

Today I had planned on wearing a copycat outfit of Rae's, #6 as seen here. It ended up being too warm (!) but I still had Rae's amazingly cool summer style in my head, so I came up with this instead: short shorts, engineer boots, no hose (first time trying this, did it work?), and one of my husband's band tees (Rancid, one of my faves!) semi-tucked of course . If I was less eloquently spoken and quite a bit younger (*giggle*) I would say that this outfit makes me feel "super cool just like Rae!" but instead I will say, "thanks for the inspiration Rae, I love your cool summer style!" :D

    You know what I want to add? A menswear vest.

    SQUEE! Aida, I'm so honored to have inspired such an awesome look. I love everything: the red shorts, the boots, the concert shirt, the bright pop of your white bag and turquoise ring...

    You must have my style down to a T, as I wore a Def Leppard shirt with shorts and bright bag sometime ago, . As I have no qualms about sounding too young, I have to say that I'm super totally stoked to be your summer shorts twin!

    I love that we take inspiration from each other here. You have such an interesting way of putting pieces together. I think your outfits have an artistic flair.

    Thanks for the comments ladies! I know this look is not for everyone and am SO glad you gals liked it; the boots+shorts was borderline too trendy for me but I really liked it and am encouraged to wear it again :D

    Taylor - Aw thanks, blushing over here ^^

    Anna - Great idea, will try that next time! There are more band tees to borrow ;)

    Rae - Yay I love that look! I was inspired to try short shorts again after seeing you sport 'em and love them now, so thanks for that too :D I'm on the lookout for a good loose denim pair now. /highfive summer shorts twin!

    San - Thank you!

    Dianthus - Me too! I especially love how we all have such different styles and can still inspire one another. The artist in me is very flattered you feel my outfits have an artistic flair, thank you!
