WIW 10.25-10.30

Well, I debated about whether to post any WIWs. But since I finally decided to join YLF after several weeks of quiet stalking, and have been giving advice, I figured it only fair that I show myself :) Here's what I wore over the week; I think my style is far more casual than most of you here. Thoughts welcome.

    Hi Aida, welcome and congrats on your first WIW post!

    I love your style! Very current urban casual and I absolutely adore the cat tee in #4. The only thing I would change is the white t-shirt from #5 - I would substitute it for a more substantial knitted top.

    My favorites are 2 and 4. I'm glad you posted - if you're taking pics anyway you may as well show them off! My problem is taking the pictures in the first place...

  • MsMary replied 12 years ago

    Holy cow, you are the cutest thing ever!! Those are all just fun and you totally OWN them!

    I especially love #2 with the lacy cami or whatever peeking out from under your sweater. And I love the accessories and your nail color is to die for!

    I am a sucker for a printed A-line skirt, so I love #6, too! The blue belt is so fresh and unexpected and really makes the outfit!

    Hi Aida, and welcome! I like your casual, hip style. #1, 2 and 5 are my faves. Super neat jacket! Great photos too, BTW. They can be tough to get!

    I'm basically a casual dresser. I wish I had your talent for those chic little touches.

  • MsMary replied 12 years ago

    Tanya, that's so funny... I love the "I just rolled out of bed wearing my old threadbare washed-a-million times undershirt" vibe of the tee in number 5. It's a VERY casual look, and you have to be very young, very confident, and have a perfect figure to pull it off. But I'd say Aida qualifies on all counts!

  • Aida replied 12 years ago

    Thanks for the comments ladies, I don't see many people most days so getting feedback is great! You're making me blush.. :D

    I've made it a point to take photos before I leave for work each day, as often as possible, to make use of the natural lighting. I can't tell you how helpful this has been in developing my style and figuring out what works and doesn't. I highly suggest it, whether you share the photos with others or not.

    MaryK - The polish is from Urban Outfitters and surprisingly good quality for the cheap price; I think it's this one:

    Aida, I am refreshed to see your funky casual style! I am a super casual dresser most the time as well. When you say you don't see many people most days, I can relate. Having recently moved here and not working, I don't have anywhere to 'be seen'. Often I don't leave the house so I'm essentially dressing for the cat lol! You look great - casual doesn't negate stylish!

    Glad you posted your outfits, we were missing a great urban casual style.
    I think you found your look and work well with it.
    I love your leather/pleated jacket and your redish pants.

  • Marley replied 12 years ago

    Oh wow - you OWN this style! Love all of these looks - so casually urban! I want that cat t-shirt!!!!! (Also, I love the look of a plain white tee with jeans!)

  • Lisa replied 12 years ago

    Thanks for sharing, these are some great looks. I especially like #2, simple and chic. You also nailed your small spot for the belt placement in #6 and the overall outfit is lovely on you.

  • Queen Mum replied 12 years ago

    I'm so glad you posted. You have a fun relaxed style. My faves are 2 and 6. You look really great in that skirt!

  • Marigold replied 12 years ago

    Thanks for sharing! Love how you add a little twist to an urban casual look with a belt or accessory. I'm a casual dresser too :)

  • Carole replied 12 years ago

    Love your outfits, casual, comfy and put together. My favs are #2 and 6. Great photography, too! Congrats on your first posts, isn't it fun?

    ps, I could see a scarf with #2 and 5 for a little extra pop!

  • Aida replied 12 years ago

    Ladies, I must say, I'm (very) excited that so many of you think of my style as having an "urban" quality; it's something I've been trying to work towards but didn't think I was quite there yet. /cheer

    Carole - I admit that accessories confuddle me a bit. Often I feel like many outfits are "so close" instead of "finished" because it's lacking a certain elusive accessory (be it a scarf, necklace, belt...). I'm definitely in the "less is more" school of accessory thought, but it's one area I'm really trying to improve on.

    Cutely casual. I really love the last one x
