Weekly Capsule 48.1 & SIA: Freedom From WantPosted: November 30, 2015
I had a different outfit in mind for this week’s SIA, inspired by Norman Rockwell’s lovely holiday tableau, “Freedom from Want”. But then when I got up on Monday, the temperature suddenly dropped, and I had to scramble to put together a more weather-appropriate outfit. This is what I ended up wearing – it picks up the shades of white and blue and brown in the painting, as well as the floral motif on the wallpaper and the old woman’s dress, so I guess it works too.
The silhouette is a little more awkward than I’m used to – I normally would tuck in the top. But that looks bulky with this sweatshirt and skirt, and in the end I thought, To hell with it, this is comfortable, and it doesn’t look too awkward, so I’m wearing it. After all this is supposed to be a Thanksgiving outfit, and you have to wear comfortable clothes for Thanksgiving, right?
