WIW 07.28-08.03

Well as usual I'm waaay behind in posting my outfits, but I still want to share them. I know most of you are totally over summer dressing and eagerly awaiting fall, but I'm happy to relive as many sunny days as I can even though this particular week wasn't terribly warm ;)

After the first two weeks with the short hair, I was able to settle back into my usual summer style and stopped worrying so much about adding black. After thinking on it, I decided that with the long hair it was very dramatic to have it as the only dark element; with short hair it still adds drama, just less of it. I was very happy to be back to wearing less black! Still into the saturated brights this week, I'd say more than normal.

  1. Saturday; worn out for breakfast, dinner with a friend, then had several friends over to hang out by the fire pit. At breakfast hubby commented that he liked this linen shirt, bright color and creases and all, which was super exciting! But then it bled orange ALL over my white bag :( I suppose it needs a vinegar wash to set the color?
  2. Sunday; worn out for breakfast and later lunch, then my sis came over for homework help. Super duper casual outfit, and these loafers have definitely become my go-to casual shoe this season. I was still in an orange mood, but this day was much warmer than the previous! I think a white or mint belt would've worked better with the colors here.
  3. Monday; worn to work then to a Mariner's game with hubby and a friend. Our friend treated us to the baseball game, lots of fun! Felt like wearing something a bit sportier than usual. I was looking back through my outfits, and noticed that I've managed to wear these emerald jeans to almost every baseball game I've been to this year! Not sure if this is subconscious or just happenstance.
  4. Tuesday; worn to the mechanic and then to work. Wanted to try both a neutral look and wear my neon jewels, but couldn't pick which to go with so decided why not both at the same time? The neon really does glow this brightly, love that!
  5. Wednesday; worn to work. Haven't worn these shorts since last spring since they're a little too big, but hey I loves me a good bit of slouch! So I paired with an equally slouchy sweater and skewed my usual summery-boho with the necklace, boots, and bag. The necklace is fuchsia and pairing with turquoise reminds me of my mom (it's one of her signature color pairings), and it's extra fun because she actually bought me this necklace.
  6. Thursday; worn to work and grocery store. After noticing that I was wearing a lot of orange since the hair cut, I decided I needed a warm-color change. This outfit was on my mind to wear for a while, but never quite felt right with the long hair. I felt really happy in it with the short 'do, though! And of course I just had to pop on a bright red lip to match ^^
  7. Friday; worn to work then date night to an Aquasox game (baseball). I quite like blue, brown, and cream together but I don't often wear it because I'm not usually into earthy for myself; I have to be in a super boho mood for it, like on this day. Decided to play that up and wear my long feather earrings, not sure if they work with the short hair or are just too long for it.

    Beautiful! If i could dress like this for summer it could stay as long as it wanted. But it was just too hot this year.

    Anyhoo i'm trying to decide on a favorite....really love that neon necklace and how it looks with denim. Also really love #7. And that hair! So sassy!

  • calmwave replied 7 years ago

    fabulous hair. always confident style. # 4 is so effortlessly cool.

  • Suz replied 7 years ago

    Ooh - the Reports! Love them! Hope they are working out for you.

    Amazing to see these layers. It's still too hot here for that! I like you in these saturated brights.

    I really like the shorter hair on you. I think it brings attention to you eyes and smile.

    Love the earrings in #6, too.

    I just love you in red! It's so energizing and sassy. I have to say that those are my faves but every outfit is fabulously Aida! #1 and 2 are so perfect to my eye. I love the light booties-so effortlessly chic. Great shorts outfit in 2--the turquoise belt is brilliant. Love the preppy shoes too. You always manage to look so amazing, Aida. I love your style!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 7 years ago

    You have such variation in colours and silhouettes Aida that your outfits are never dull!

    That stinks that your orange shirt bled on your white purse - did you get it out ok?

    That neon necklace in #4 is just amazing - love it more every time I see it.

    And of course you know I LOVE that hi-low skirt in #7.

    Fab week as usual!

    Nice to see you, Aida! There's nothing wrong with loving some orange, as it loves you back, and from the sounds of it, you all need some brightening up out there, what with being robbed of much of summer. I love your use of colors vs. neutrals, as always. So sorry to hear about your bag/shirt conflict. I hope they can work it out : (

    GREAT outfits.

    Jeans in summer... you lucky, lucky duck. I really love #2 - you have a nice style groove going on here. Feels very clean, simple, unfussy. Cool vibe for warm days. :)

  • KathyL replied 7 years ago

    You look great in orange and bright colors! I love #7, and I think the earrings look great with short hair.

  • Sveta replied 7 years ago

    You really rock the shorts outfits, especially with booties. I think these two are my favorites this week - maybe because I cannot wear short shorts myself? :-)
    But of course your hair steals the show!

  • Kiwichik replied 7 years ago

    You look great in all these looks but I'm a sucker for boho so #7 is my fav.

  • Angie replied 7 years ago

    I love it all because I love your style!

    #2 is my best. A perfect mixture of the trends that are grounded by the classics :)

    Sorry that your shirt bled onto your bag. *sigh*

  • Sara L. replied 7 years ago

    I love that neon necklace in #4! I also love the shorts outfits, although it's way too hot here for anything but tanks and sandals. I need to keep these short outfits in mind for fall when it starts cooling down somewhat.

  • Zapotee replied 7 years ago

    Very nice week, as usual. I'm actually studying your pictures, since you are an expert of pairing soft ensembles with oxfords. I do have a pair of Fluevogs ready for some game time. Any tips?

  • Ingunn replied 7 years ago

    You have great style! All outfits are exciting, but I think #4 and #6 are my favorites. Your new hair looks very pretty, too!
