Aqua Shorts

I don't do ultra casual often. I hardly ever REALLY dress up as I usually try to find a casual version of my loved girly retro style, but most of the time I don't go casual all the way. Makes me feel naked, somehow, and horribly underdressed. I wouldn't feel comfortable wearing an outfit as casual as this one to class, for example, strange as that might sound. I guess I'm one of those crazy girls who like dresscodes and dressing for the right occasion! This ultra casual Sunday outfit is something I'd wear on a trip to the beach, or to paint a house or something, lol. But sometimes it feels nice to just let it all go, you know? I feel like a completely different person when I dress like a teenage tomboy from the early sixties, like in this outfit, compared to when I'm wearing my midi skirts. I imagine I even WALK differently. I could definitely see my poses being slightly different! How strange is that? I guess I just really love dressing up and playing a part in the play called life.

Also: ever so subtle colorblocking with the fuschia lips, aqua shorts, coral sandals and banana (toes) and lilac (fingers) nailpolish. I'm SUCH a trendwhore.

blouse: hand me down
shorts, sandals, banana nailpolish, sunglasses: H&M
bag: Pimkie
lilac nailpolish: Catrice

  12. Oh I looove this! Everything from head to toe, the color of the shirt is soo cute, (my favorite color) the shirt is amazing, and so are your shoes. And the bag is awesome, I love that kind of bags, every time I go shopping and I see bags like that I want to buy a dozen of them haha.
    I am such a shopaholic, but I contain myself all the time because my husband is with me all the time when we go shopping for anything. ( I think I need a -girl- friend to go out shopping with, lol).

    Anywho, you look beautiful! :)

  14. Man, it looks like it's beach weather in Belgium! I love your subtle colourblocking and awesome blouse. And I don't usually dress down either, but I think it's just because dressier styles suit my body type better. : )

  15. Your colourblocking is super subtle though, I love it! Those shorts are gorgeous. Everyone needs a few days of casual wear, I love this though. I don't like being super dressy or super casual, a nice middle ground is best!

  16. I completely agree. i always feel different in something casual, and yes i think i walk differently too. this is such a fresh outfit though, not in a way that like damn you fresh girl. but fresh like summery? the colours are gorgeous esp with white.

  17. I think this is the first time that I've seen you wearing shorts. I adore the color and I agree with what you said. We always love to dress up and it should match the occasion or even the mood we're in. :)

    Being casual takes away the fun in dressing up.

  18. eeee! Your legs are so tan that they are color blocked too!

    I LOVE THOSE PINK SANDALS!

    I think you could totally do a little turban with this outfit, too.

  19. I want those sandals!!! They're just amazing. I like this casual look, but I seem to love all your sweet dresses and skirts more too. I really don't like wearing shorts, so I'm hoping to find a similar girly casual style to adopt for summer too! <3shelby

  20. I have yet to see an outfit you don't rock. You do casual very, very well, Annabeth.

  21. I think the color blocking looks lovely. It's a subtle touch with your fantastic nail colors. Sweet!! I'm not usually seen in short shorts but lately the weather has been so hot that I don't want to wear anything longer.

  22. I totally know what you mean about outfits- I also feel like I walk differently when I'm way dressed down and wonder if anyone else notices. This is a great summer outfit though and still has your girly touch!

  23. Yeaaah, I have those shorts too! *happy*

  24. Damn girl, you are rockin' a beautiful tan there! I just burn to a crisp myself... Anyway, I think you still look pretty darn polished--maybe casual for you, but still refined and stylish. Those shoes are super neat, too. Unique materials.

    Anywayyy I've missed reading your blog while I have been so busy recently, and I just scrolled through your last week of outfits and it's pure magic. It's so fun to see you back in your summer looks!

    xoxo
