I actually had two outfits for this week’s SIA, inspired by Edward Hopper’s “Carolina Morning” – one inspired by the colors of the entire painting, and another inspired just by the woman in the painting. This, of course, is the one inspired by the entire painting. I picked out the blue and sandy beige of the painting and added a pop of red with my sneakers – simple. It’s the perfect work-from-home outfit too, comfy but still put-together enough.
The other outfit will be posted on Wednesday, so stay tuned. And don’t forget to check Kim’s blog for other interpretations of this painting!
I don’t know if that post title makes sense or not. I’m just trying to find a play on the word “glass”, since this outfit is inspired by the blown glass flasks picked by Daenel, and I already titled a post “Glassy” (terrible, terrible pun totally intended), so this is the best I could do.
Anyway, on to the outfit. I used the main colors of the flasks as the jumping-off point, hence the green pants and brown oxfords. There is yellow too, but that shade of greenish yellow would look horrible on me, so I opted for my tan sweater instead. The sweater also has a texture that mimics the pattern of the flasks, so win-win. And finally, I topped it off with my glass brooch, and voilà! All done. I’m pretty happy with this outfit, as it is a good interpretation of the inspiration (if I do say so myself) but still works well on its own.
