WIW: new combos

I've been enjoying repeats lately. I have summer casual and smart casual capsules working pretty well for me, and am enjoying that.  Here's a few combinations from the first half of July that weren't repeats.  You've seen most of the pieces, I think, but this was the first time I wore them in these combinations.

#1 - #2 red drapey top with striped tube skirt.  Added a jacket for frigid A/C at church. This was the first outing of these nude sandals, and may be the last - the straps weren't comfortable on me.

#3 striped top with boyfriend jeans.

#4 - #5 apple green shorts with button-down top - one chambray, the other woven.  This has become a pretty favorite combo.

#6 - worn for indoor A/C - white jeans with buttondown.

#7 - worn for a July 4th bbq wedding.  I was actually on the dressy side of appropriate, believe it or not! (The bridesmaids were a bit less formal than this outfit)  These white sandals here served me well that day. Do they look current?

    I like the top in 1-2! And glad to see the hi-lo hem in 7 getting some wear. Glad you're feeling happy with what you're wearing. :)

    I LOVE #1!  I want to steal that top so I can copy it.  Love #7 too - that cranberry color is really good on you.

    I love that red drapey top!

    Thanks for the drapey top love!  It's the only item in my wardrobe that my husband asked me to purchase - he saw it on the eShakti site, and requested it, in this color.

    Unfortunately, it's just a tad too big, and these pics were the first time I wore it, because my weight is up a few pounds, and I was feeling bloated.  I realized that the bloating was actually to my advantage because it gave me the ability to fill this top out, so I wore it and enjoyed :)

    These are nice outfits!  I really like both red tops - the one in #1 and in #7.  They have interesting details but are still very summery.

    Love the top in #1. That colour is fabulous on you! Really like all the outfits - simple, smart and summery.

    #2,#3 and #7 are my favorites - shoes seems fine.

    I really like #1 and #7 - too bad nude sandals didn't work out. You have a bunch of silhouettes and color combos all worked out for the summer.

    Amy- I think you've hit your groove!  I love your smart, casual summer combos!

    I love all these looks. Too bad about the pinchy sandals as they are very cute.
