WIW 11.12 [anniversary white-out]

For my 10th wedding anniversary I figured a (pseudo) white-out was in order ;)

This outfit formed around this new extra cozy BIG blanket scarf which I picked up this past weekend during the meetup -- in my favorite color/neutrals (orange/white,taupe,black) and my favorite print (checks), couldn't pass that up! -- and popped over a column of white/cream to really highlight the scarf (and hair too, it's extra sassy today woo!). I specifically chose this open-weave tunic sweater for the added vertical integrity, which also minimizes the (truly) giant scarf a little bit. Added my husband's favorite piece of jewelry, pearl studs that were a 5th anniversary gift, and chose a deep cranberry lipstick inspired by how striking dark lips+light outfit looked in Anna's lovely outfit yesterday. For outerwear went with More Lightness and More Prints because, well, ya'all know me ^^ If it weren't cold I'd have preferred the no-coat look, but what can you do.

  Newer: scarf, sunnies
  Older: sweater, jeans, boots, coat, clutch, earrings

    Happy 10th anniversary! Your DH is a very lucky man. You had me at white-out. It really sets off your beautiful scarf and sassy hair.

    You look fab!  Happy Anniversary - your outfit is a wonderful mix of old and new with some sentiment thrown in there.

    I have not commented on your recent WIW but have looked and admired.  Loved the blue, and the neutrals - just wonderful.

    You look so pretty! Somehow this is both sleek/sophisticated and cozy/cuddly at the same time. I love the new scarf- I'm another fan of huge scarves.

    Happy anniversary!

  • Angie replied 4 years ago

    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, and wishing you many more. (Adore your hair in this style. Best ever). 

    Your outfit is Killer to the power of Killer, and waving at my shoe twin. LOVE the pearl studs. If I wore earrings - that's what I would wear and nothing else. High five, Davie. And much love to you, Aida. 

  • JAileen replied 4 years ago

    Really nice outfit! Your hair is beautiful.

  • CocoLion replied 4 years ago

    So smart to do a column of color with the giant scarf, stunning outfit!  More colors would make the whole outfit more hectic.   You are a talented stylist I think.

  • Astrid replied 4 years ago

  • Sveta replied 4 years ago

    Happy anniversary! 10 years - doesn't time just fly?:-)
    Love your hair and love the outfit. Any type of whiteout has my heart.
    The scarf is lovely. I am tempted myself but being acrylic stops me...How does it feel? Do you think it will not pill too much? The colors are just lovely and would be great with my black coat...

  • dashielle (Ann) replied 4 years ago

  • Susie replied 4 years ago

    You look so pretty in white; I love the contrast with your gorgeous dark curls. And it's the perfect backdrop for that lovely scarf.

    Happy Anniversary! I had my 10th a couple months ago. That must mean we are close to the same age...HA! :)

  • Deborah replied 4 years ago

    Happy Anniversary Aida, and you look gorgeous.  I love the tonal look and subtlety in the different shades.

  • replied 4 years ago

    Stunning as ever, Aida! There's always an inspiration takeaway for me from your WIWs, and in this one it's your tonal balancing of whites: so artfully done. (And there's that fab long-sleeved sweater again). I love your earrings, they're a great size for a stud--not too small, not too big. Hope you had a wonderful anniversary celebration.

  • UmmLila replied 4 years ago

    I love the drama of the white. Happy anniversary!

  • Karie replied 4 years ago

    You completely rock this white-out outfit! Those earrings are gorgeous, and I love, love, love, the big scarf.

    Happy Anniversary!

  • Aida replied 4 years ago

    My goodness ladies, thank you all so much for the lovely comments and the very sweet anniversary wishes! We spent a very stormy weekend staying on the Seattle waterfront. Will post "travel" outfits soon ^^

    Sharan, no worries about missing Outlet stuff! The scarf is from Zara which I picked up on the Friday shopping day.

    Elizabeth and Sveta, if you wanted me to order from the US site and ship to you I'd be happy to. Just sayin' ;) It's a VERY fuzzy and soft acrylic. Not sure about its inclination to pill but it's certainly fuzzy enough for it. We'll see.

    Diana, ooh! Sleek/sophisticated + cozy/cuddly is basically my goal for winter dressing! Thanks for giving me the words to describe it.

    Angie, woohoo! This might be my craziest hair ever :D

    Anna, doh -- fixed the link as soon as I saw your reply. And I extra enjoyed the serifs on our dinner menu's headings ^^
