Here’s my outfit for this week’s SIA, inspired by Paul Cézanne’s “Woman with a Coffee Pot“. These pants (a new-to-me, hand-me-down pair from my mom) are perfect because their color and texture mimic the color and texture of the wall in the painting, and my boots are to reflect the rich brown of the table. The top, however, took some thinking. I was going to wear my navy cable-knit sweater and add a silver brooch, but that was a bit too similar to my “Paul Revere” outfit (I’ve already reworn my white shirt.) In the end, I decided on this Fair Isle sweater instead – there are both gray and white in the pattern, so it’s a nod to the texture on the woman’s dress, the flowers on the wall behind her, and the coffee pot and cup all at the same time. So it’s a bit of a looser interpretation, but I like it.

I love it! And I can totally see why you chose the trousers, boots and Fair Isle sweater! You look fabulous.
It all makes sense to me-good interpretation. And I always love a good Fair Isle.
I think this is a brilliant way to interpret the painting into an outfit, Salazar. The Fair Isle print really is reflective of the colors and textures in the painting as are your adorable plaid trousers. I really like that these outfits that we create from the art are very wearable for the every day woman. My outfit is also without a coffee pot! I meant to at least have a coffee mug but I forgot!
Your colours are spot on! I think the items go really well together and the jumper is really attractive!
