Capsule Outfit #23/Music Question

For this week’s SIA, inspired by “Lady Folding a Letter” by Rococo artist, Louise-Elizabeth Vigée Le Brun, I pulled from my capsule wardrobe again – mustard cardigan, black jeans, white and blue scarves, and black boots. Simple. The floral print on my boots is to represent the rich colors and details of the original painting – I know, I know, there’s no floral in the painting, but that’s why it’s an interpretation, right?

I’ll be back tomorrow with a full round-up post (a lot of variety this week, which I love). Before that, though, let me ask you guys an unrelated question: what kind of music do you listen to when you need some energy boost? I listen to music when I work, and with my increasingly heavy work load, I need something a bit energetic to keep me concentrated, but I can’t stand pop or dance (except electronic), and my usual brand of “complain indie rock” can get on my nerves after a while. So any recommendation? Lately I’ve been listening to soundtracks (Tron: Legacy and Pacific Rim, mostly) as well as some comedy (Dylan Moran, his grumpiness is really helpful for when I’m reading a particularly bad script, and Bo Burnham), but any suggestion is welcome.

Oh and in case you’re interested, here is how I wore my scarves – just double them, loop them up, and wound around like you would a normal scarf:

  1. Great idea with the scarf! And the floral print on your shoes echoes the colors of the paintings so I’d say they’re perfect 🙂

  2. I love the color of the cardigan on you! Very pretty!

    And random but I’d love if you shared this post on my new Weekend Snapshots link up. The link-up just went live today!

  3. Great casual interpretation of this painting! The boots are the perfect finishing touch — and very cool trick with the scarves! 🙂

  4. I didn’t even notice that you were wearing two scarves! Brilliant!
