The SerenadePosted: September 8, 2014
This week’s SIA inspiration, “The Serenade” by Eugene de Blaas, has a lot of colors and patterns to choose from, but since I’m exercising to simplify my style, I decided to go with the lady on the far left, the one in the white shift and blue skirt, who’s all “I’m too busy for this sh*t”. She is truly a girl after my own heart 🙂
So for my outfit, I copied her “skirt over dress” look (the white skirt is probably her petticoat though). It was too hot for a kerchief/scarf like she has around her neck, so I added the blue brooch as a finishing touch. This is actually one of the SIA outfits that I’m quite proud of, because it’s pretty close to the original while still being wearable.
Don’t forget to check out Librarian for Life and Style to see other interpretations of this painting!
