WIW 12.03-12.05

Hope you all won't be too disappointed after my last set of more urban outfits ;) This is a set of 3 from last weekend when we went down to Portland with a bunch of friends for the Holiday Ale Fest (yum!) so I needed comfortable ALL day inside/outside outfits. My husband and I left a day earlier than everyone so we could have an extra night to ourselves.

  1. Worn for the drive down (5 hours instead of 3, traffic was awful, ugh), then to dinner at Little Big Burger which was deLICious, and then to Deschutes for some late munchies (and a yummy hefeweizen).
  2. Worn for breakfast at Kelly's Olympian, then all day at the Holiday Ale Fest (my favorite was Laurelwood Brewing Company's Black Pepper Belgian Pale Ale, if anyone is into beer :) ). Then back to Kelly's, then off to Deschutes for a late, late dinner. A very long but fun day!
  3. Worn for breakfast at The Original with everyone, then headed home (normal time this round, 3 hours). Listened to the Seahawks game on the radio, and made it home in time for most of the 4th quarter.
  4. Bonus photo my hubby took at the fest. I'm on the front left, mostly cut off ;)

As you can see, I didn't pack much; we took just a backpack for the two of us and I had only my boots as footwear. Comments, critiques, thoughts and questions welcome!

    Aida, you have captured my casual heart with these outfit posts! My fave is the first outfit with the stripes--your signature look! Very fab! I love the green jeans in #2--unexpected and fun. Cool fringy scarf, too. That fur trimmed jacket is such a fun piece--I see the color goes with #3 too. Great, functional and cute capsule! Sounds like a great time was had by all! Cheers!

    Thanks Kelly, I'm glad you like them (I always love all your outfits, your casual wear really speaks to me!). These three outfits are indeed super casual and I'm curious to see how they're received. I haven't really thought of stripes as signature of mine, but you know, you're right! I love stripes and wear them often, and I'm always happy to do so. Stripes, plaid, houndstooth... my perfect patterns!

    I think these are great! Especially #2, and especially the right-hand photo in #2! You just totally OWN your outfits and the effect is just fab, fab, fab!

    Not disappointed AT all! Perfect streamlined capsule for your weekend. I think my favorite is #2 - love the green skinnies with the cream colored scarf - and your boots are FAB! Thanks for posting!

    These all look nice and comfortable as well as put-together. Your style would fit in perfectly here in Alaska!

    Thanks for the comments!

    Mary - #2's left photo was early on in the day and right was at the end of the day, I was much "happier" by then 0;)

    Marley - I'm getting more wear out of these boots than I expected to when I first bought them; at the time I thought they were a shopping mistake, but now I love them!

    Una - I definitely felt very Pacific Northwestern :)

    I'm with the others, not at all disapointed and love #2.
    I was find that you and your outfits are in perfect sync. Fabulous.
