Snow Shadows

Here’s my outfit for this week’s SIA, inspired by Tom Thomson’s “Snow Shadows“. I knew I’d wear this striped button-up to reflect the blue shadows in the painting, and the rest of the outfit came together quite quickly. This is my first foray into styling sweater vests, which I’ve never worn before, having always thought of them as rather frumpy. But I quite like it styled in a menswear-inspired way like this, and it adds some much-needed pattern and texture (not to mention warmth) to the outfit, to reflect the texture of the painting.

Don’t forget to drop by Terri’s blog on Wednesday to see how everybody interprets this week’s inspiration. This is also the last SIA challenge of the year – we’re taking a break during the holidays – so see you after the New Year! (I’ll post a round-up of my favorite SIA challenges the week after next.)
