Water Lilies

So here’s my outfit for this week’s SIA, inspired by one of Claude Monet’s “Water Lilies”. You may notice that this isn’t my usual background for outfit photos – this is the pond at my school. Last week I had to drop by the office to pick up a few things to prepare for going back to work this week (yup, social distancing/isolation is over! We’re still taking precautions, but things are slowly normalized), so I decided to switch things up and take photos by an actual lily pond – too bad our lilies are white, not pink, so the color scheme is not quite right. I’ve never taken outfit photos at school because I get self-conscious, but there was no one around, so I figured, why not?

As for the outfit, the colors are self-explanatory. The highlight is absolutely these socks (no I didn’t pick the painting because of the socks what are you talking about), but I also added my lily pad brooch as a nod to the painting.

If you haven’t sent me your outfits, you still have until tomorrow. And don’t forget to check back on Wednesday to see other outfits inspired by this classic!

    Yay! No more physical distancing for you (within reason of course)! I’m glad. We’re still in lockdown here, but many of our states are starting to loosen restrictions, so we’ll see if I get called back to work soon. I hope so.

    I know what you mean by feeling self conscious. I’m the same way. The few times that I took photos away from home (back when we were living at our apartment), I always felt nervous; worrying what would people think…

    But your campus looks gorgeous! A perfect backdrop.
    And your outfit is perfect!!

    Be safe, Salazar!

  2. Your campus is so pretty and I’m so glad you’re getting back to work! Blue jeans work so well with this painting and the pink is the perfect softness. You and your socks and brooches accessory stash!

    Ooh, well done on the excellent backdrop!!! Very cool! I can see all the colours brilliantly in your outfit and the brooch is the crowning glory.
    (You totally planned the art because of the socks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
    I am glad you are getting back to work. I’m a bit worried about going back but here’s hoping it will be safe. Stay safe.x

  4. Your campus is so pretty, but I so feel you on feeling self conscious. I don’t take my pictures in public for that very reason. Great outfit!!
