SIA: Carnation, Lily, Lily, RosePosted: May 3, 2016
It’s another week of SIA, and we’re celebrating the coming summer (is it too soon for you guys in more moderate climates? It’s certainly not to soon for us tropical-dwellers) with John Singer Sargent’s “Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose”. Let’s hit it!
First up we have Mike, who went with a simple black-and-white outfit, and used his house plants to recreate the foliage in the painting – now that’s dedication!
Our co-host Jen chose more saturated versions of the colors in the painting, and I love that she also wore a striped top to subtly call back to the paper lanterns:
Next up is Stephanie’s double-floral look – it’s actually triple-floral if you count the background as well:
Our other co-host, Erin, had a pretty straightforward outfit. The feminine silhouette, colors and accessories certainly fit the simple prettiness of the painting:
Kezzie always looks super cute, and this time she doesn’t disappoint either:
Noelle of The Classy Junk is lovely in her ethereal floral maxi dress. I would argue that it’s more fitting for a Pre-Raphaelite painting, but it’s great nonetheless:
And finally, here’s me:
And that wraps up another successful SIA! Thank you for participating, and come back next week for a new challenge!
