Boy With A CoinPosted: August 14, 2017
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!
