Sunday Morning

For this week’s SIA, inspired by Norman Rockwell’s “Sunday Morning” illustration, my problem was not that I didn’t know what to wear, but rather the opposite – I had so many ideas that I couldn’t pick just one! In the end, though, I decided to go with this combination. I was going to wear my gray waistcoat, but sadly it doesn’t match the gray of my blazer, so I picked this sweater vest instead. There are actually a lot of colors/patterns in the painting, from the flowers on the windowsill to the hats of mom (which I also gave a nod to in my brooch) and the girls, and I think this vest reflects that. Plus, it brings a casual/formal contrast to the outfit, which works well for the painting (mom and the kids’ formal church clothes vs. dad’s sloppy loungewear). For the rest of the outfit, I went with my trusty combo of red cords + lace-up boots. Yes, I wore them for the last SIA challenge too, but when something works, why change it?

  1. Great look, Salazar, and I love everything with this look, I always love a beautiful sweater vest! Here’s something else I noticed. In the top right-hand corner of the illustration is a Schefflera. You are the only one that I know that can have nature green in your design. Most of us are living with brown at this time of the year.

  2. Salazar, you totally nailed this! I adore that woollen waistcoat, it’s gorgeous! And the colours are perfection.

  3. Oh my gosh, Salazar, your sweater vest really picks up on the colors in the mother’s and children’s outfit. That was a brilliant choice! I also love your pattern mix with your checked blazer. These colors are so pretty together and it makes for such a cozy look. And that brooch! It is fabulous and it really does look like the mom’s hat! LOVE!
