Boy With A Coin

Sorry for the radio silence this past week. I had planned on posting something in the middle of the week, but then time got away from me, and I didn’t have anything interesting say anyway, so rather than to force a post, I decided to just take a break. Anyway, school is back next week, so hopefully I can have regular outfit posts again and the blog will be back on track.

Back to the matter at hand – here’s my outfit for this week’s SIA, inspired by Melissa McCracken‘s synesthetic painting. I had to admit, I picked this mainly because it’s such a beautiful piece. I had no idea what I was going to wear for it. By a stroke of luck, last week I went shopping with my sister and picked up a few new tops, including this lilac tunic (my sister called it “taro-colored”, which is quite accurate actually). Even though the color isn’t exactly right (the painting has more pink than purple), I thought the flowy silhouette would be a good fit for this. I paired it with my navy jeans and dark red heels to mimic the other colors in the painting. I thought about adding my yellow brooch as well, but it clashes with the purple. Besides, the tunic has some very pretty embroideries already, and I didn’t want to distract from them, so I figured this would do, even if it’s not as close to the painting as I’d like.

So that’s it for me. I’m probably going to post the round-up on Wednesday, so you still have until tomorrow to send me your outfits. Get to it!

  1. Very sweet and subtle take on the inspiration piece. I love the swooping embroidery on the tunic! 🙂

    I think that tunic is the perfect item to wear! Also, I don’t feel like I could pull of a tunic like that with jeans, but you do it wonderfully.

  3. Thanks for joining the Top of the World Style linkup party with your post. You look great in this dress over pants look!

  4. […] I wore this tunic with jeans for SIA, I thought that the silhouette looks familiar, but I couldn’t place it until I realized it […]
