Casual RufflesPosted: August 25, 2014 | |
I was so inspired by this week’s SIA inspiration, “Blackboard” by Winslow Homer (such a New England name, isn’t it?) that I actually put together two outfits for it. One I wore to work on Friday, which I’ll post that one along with the round-up tomorrow. This one is closer in shapes and colors to the original painting, but it’s a bit casual so I just wore it around the house on Saturday. I added the initial necklace to keep with the classroom theme. Of course, I had to be a total bonehead about it and put the necklace on backwards the entire time. If I wanted to be really literal about it, though, I would’ve worn this necklace or this one, to echo the geometric shapes on the board 🙂
By the way, this outfit is almost an exact replica of this, except with a different shirt. I find that it’s the only way I could wear this dress, it has way too many ruffles for me.
Dress: H&M (hand-me-down), Shirt: Gap (thrifted), Flats: Vagabond, Necklace: gift
