I almost didn’t take pictures of this outfit because – come on, t-shirt and jeans and sneakers, how basic can you get? But we’ve just had a big rain shower, and the air felt so nice and cool that I just wanted to be outside for a while, so I figured, why not. Might as well take outfit pictures too.
I also feel like I should explain my post title a bit. It’s a reference to the phrase “raining cats and dogs”, of course, but it’s also related to my outfit in that there is a cat on my shirt and my sneakers were (partly) redesigned by my dog. Yeah, it’s deep.

This week’s casual looks:
When I saw this week’s SIA inspiration, Joyce Koskenmaki’s “Bear in Boat“, I knew I couldn’t go literal with my interpretation. The painting has mainly solid colors, colors which I don’t have in my summer closet (those are more suitable for Christmas than June.) So I decided to put together a casual weekend outfit based on the whimsical, eclectic quality of the painting instead. At least, that was my intention. I’m not sure if I pulled it off – this just looks like I was in my pajamas and had to throw on a pair of shoes for a quick errand. Maybe it would work better with a different, less casual top, but I wanted to wear this shirt because the cat kinda looks like the bear in the painting, don’t you think?
Remember to check Jess’ blog for other interpretation of this painting!

Usually I wouldn’t blog a simple outfit like this, but I just got this shirt from my sister, and wanted to show it off. Is it the perfect t-shirt for me or what? And big thanks to my sister for knowing so me well 🙂
