Floral And Pottery

I had a different outfit planned for this week’s SIA. See, when I saw the cherry blossoms and the criss-crossing on the inspiration piece, a Japanese Nabeshima dish, I’d decided to wear my white embroidered cardigan and navy gingham shirt, with light-blue jeans. Unfortunately, the weather warmed up unexpectedly and completely upended my plan. So in the end I picked another embroidered piece – this blouse – and navy culottes (they’re supposed to be culottes, but on my short legs, they look more like simple wide-leg pants. Which is just as well, because culottes are really unflattering on me) to represent the blue elements of the dish. Not the outfit I’d imagine, but I still liked it, both as an outfit and an interpretation of this week’s inspiration.

If you haven’t sent me your outfit, you still have until tomorrow. Otherwise, see you in the round-up post on Wednesday!
