Weekly Capsule 10.1: Gingham & Floral

For this week’s SIA, inspired by Ernest Bieler’s “The Knitting Lesson”, I put together a simple outfit with elements pulled from the painting – the gingham on the old woman’s head scarf, her black dress, the little girl’s pink dress, and her floral head scarf. It is still not warm enough for skirts right now, but I’m getting a bit tired of jeans, so a skirt and sheer tights it is. It’s annoying that the amount of time I can wear a skirt is so short – a few weeks in April and May, and then a few weeks in October and maybe November, and that’s about it. Any time in between is just too cold for bare legs/too hot to have a waistband around your torso. Or maybe I’m just making up excuses because I’m more of a jeans girl.

    Great SIA outfit Salazar! It matches the painting perfectly. I admit that I haven’t seen this painting before, or even heard of it. Very interesting.
    The weather’s finally starting to warm up a little here in the States. Hope that your weather improves as well. Spring is only a couple of weeks away. We can make it. 🙂
