This week’s SIA is a tough one for me, because it has all these colors and movements that I had no idea to interpret with my closet of mostly neutral and structured pieces. Then it hit me – the title is “Galaxy”, and I have a star-printed tee that could work. It’s in black and white, but when does that ever stop me? So I put together a black and white outfit – my shirt has the stars for the “galaxy” part, and my skirt has all the brushstrokes and movements from the mural. It works out pretty well, does it, even though it doesn’t have all the colors of the original piece?
(Yes, I’m totally referencing a Discworld novel – one of my favorites – in the post title.)
This is one of the more interesting casual outfits I wore these past few weeks. It’s another “grading papers” outfit, taken during last week’s heat wave, but at least the shirt is new (on the blog anyway) and I made an effort with accessorizing, so I think it deserves a spot on the blog.
I bought this shirt from Mango during my Singapore trip, and I’ve worn it quite a lot since then, but it’s mostly for very casual outfits and I’m terrible about documenting those. It’s a shame, because it’s been ages since I found a good and comfy printed tee like this.
