SIA: Watermelons And Field Mice

Welcome to another week of SIA! As a reminder, our inspiration is “Watermelons and Field Mice” by 16th century Korean artist Shin Saimdang:

First up we have Jodie, in a mustard cardigan that she knitted herself (!!!) and amazing floral boots:

Our co-host Jen is next, and she has submitted two outfits, both featuring a black, white, and maroon color scheme:

Next is Kimberly, who picked out the mustard and green of the painting as the basis for her outfit. Also check out her snakeskin blouse:

Then we have our co-host Daenel, who went a different route – she picked out the pale pink of the watermelon flesh, and added a pair of olive green pumps with embroidered heels:

Green is also the starting point for Leslie, who chose her sweater to mimic the watercolor rind:

And finally, here’s me:

And that wraps up another fun SIA challenge. Thank you for participating, and remember to check back next Monday for another inspiration!

    These are great outfits. I really liked the painting but ran out of time to put an outfit together. It’s a pity as I have a lovely handmade 3 blind mice ring made out of silver filigree that I really wanted to find and wear but as usual, time eluded me!
