Tiny Dancers

black tee quilted skirt black flats by 14 shades of grey

Today is the first day that it actually feels like fall around here. Sure, it’s still sunny and warm, but the light seems clearer, there is a tiny hint of crispness in the air, and I don’t sweat buckets just after 15 minutes outside to feed the chickens anymore. It is all the more exciting for me because it means that I could wear this skirt for SIA – OK, OK, so it’s not practical to wear a quilt skirt in 80+ degrees, but it’s so perfect for this week’s painting, “The Star” by Degas, how could I pass it up?

I keep the rest of the outfit as simple as possible to keep with the “ballerina” theme. Plus, with a skirt like this, you have to let it take center stage (terrible pun totally intended), right? Don’t forget to check out Animated Cardigan for more outfits inspired by this painting, and check back here next week for a new inspiration!

  5. […] on SIA before, so I decided it would be fun to go with his sculpture this time around (actually, my outfit for that challenge would work for this one as well.) I like this for the neutral color scheme, and […]
