I wanted to put together something a little summery for this week’s SIA, inspired by Maurice Prendergast’s “Children at the Beach”, but I still had to go to work (so! much! paperwork!!!), so here is a work outfit instead. The print on my blouse and the blue color are to evoke the sea and the sky in the painting, naturally, and my pink loafers are to mimic the softer, daintier colors of the children’s clothes. It’s not beach-appropriate, but it’s SIA-appropriate, and I’m OK with that.
If you haven’t sent me your outfit, you still have until tomorrow! And don’t forget to drop by on Wednesday to see other outfits inspired by this lovely watercolor!
I have a problem. I was doing closet inventory the other day and realized that I have three button-up shirts in identical shades of blue, all with a plaid pattern of varying sizes – one is a buffalo plaid, one is a checkered plaid, and one is gingham. This is a problem, right? It’s what you get for blindly buying without thinking of what you already had. Especially when I don’t know how to style them to make them look different enough from one another. At least this one is collarless so it looks slightly more casual, but that’s not much. Do you guys have any suggestion?
Happy Fourth of July to my US readers! I haven’t taken outfit photos in a while (since school is out, I haven’t gone anywhere; plus it’s too hot for outfit photos), but I still have some straggling work outfits that I haven’t posted yet, and here is one of them. I figure that between the red-and-blue color scheme and the pattern on my blouse, which looks like fireworks on the night sky, this would be appropriate for an Independence Day post. Do you guys have any plans for today? I hope you have fun!
