Cyanotype

Here is my outfit for SIA, inspired by Anna Atkins‘ cyanotype photographs. Since the print of the dress mimics the cyanotypes so perfectly, I kept the rest of the outfit simple. And yes, this dress is made of the same fabric as my top from last Friday’s post. I like it so much that when I saw the top and the dress on sale, I had to get them both.

The dress is a little shorter than I like (I prefer midi-length, or at least below the knees), but for a summer dress, it’s great. Plus, pockets! My only problem is how to style it differently each time I wear it. The dress is so focus-pulling already that a change of shoes would not make much of a difference. I guess I’ll have to wait until the fall to try layering it.

Don’t forget to stop by Jen’s blog on Wednesday to see other looks inspired by these amazing photographs!
