WIW: copying Aida

Aida's post today featured a color combo that I liked immediately, so I decided to copy it.
Hers is emerald and mine is more of an apple green, but I like it combined with navy and cognac.  

What do you think?  Is it working?  I would have never thought to add cognac without Aida - thank you Aida!

(This navy drapey top is recently saved from the purge pile by adding some elastic at the back of the neck, which is doing great at keeping it from sliding off my shoulders.  Yay for easy fixes!)

    Oh how fun! :D I think this version of the color combo works beautifully (plus I adore seeing apple greens on others, I can't easily wear it but love it). Really nice fluid fit on all items, and great little fix on the top.

    I really like the apple green. The outfit works beautifully.

    And what a cute and whimsical accessory you have by your side :)

    Love the colors including the cognac touches. Tough audience there though :-)!

    Great colors together. I'm glad you saved the top.
    The 2 cognac pieces really tie it together.

    These colours really look great together on you, Amy! Cute accessory, too. :)

    Cognac is just the right color to set off the pairing of navy and apple green. I like how your top drapes so gracefully. I also like the young fashion critic by your side!

    I almost missed this Amy but so glad I didn't because it looks great. I really like the fit of the top and bottoms and the cognac does add just the right touch. Your hair looks really good too - it's getting longer I see and I do like it a bit longer like this.

    Hey I like this colour combo! So fresh! Great fix on the top. YLF :)

    These shorts sat unworn in my closet all summer long.  I figured out yesterday that it was because I didn't know what to wear with them - my potential tops to wear with them are white or blue, and my summer shoes were black.  It didn't occur to me to try cognac, and the blue and green combo didn't seem like it went right with black.  Thanks to Aida for saving these shorts and showing me that blue and green with cognac is terrific in the late summer/early fall.

    Great save for two items.  I really like how YLF provides such great inspiration.

    Super cute. I like the addition of the loafers especially. Your hair is growing nicely. xo

    And DS is hilarious. 

  • dawn replied 5 years ago

    Yep it works together well. And I really do like the combination of the loafers with the apple green shorts and the navy blouse.

  • Susie replied 5 years ago

    Very nice! This is such a great simple yet stylish look.

    I love the outfit, and your little one is adorable. Plus, I love the length of your hair right now! I am a big fan of short-but-long. Are you planning to really grow it out really long???

  • amiable replied 5 years ago

    Thanks Everyone!
    Viva, I'm hoping to grow my hair out to about shoulder length.  It's growing pretty quickly, so I think it'll be there in a few months.  We'll see.  I feel like having it longer makes my face also look longer, so I'm not entirely convinced that I'll like it.  But I think it's worth trying.   :)  I'm hoping to keep the back in an inverted-bob shape.
