Miss Hokusai

white shirt polka dot scarf navy skirt beige sandals by 14 shades of grey

Here’s my outfit for this week’s SIA, inspired by Hokusai’s iconic “The Great Wave off Kanagawa“. The skirt and sandals are my first choices, since the soft pleats are a perfect echo of the waves in the print, and the sandals mimic the boats. I thought about pairing my polka dot chambray shirt with it for a different shade of blue, and also to mimic the dotted sprays, but then I opted for this hand-me-down white shirt from my sister and my polka dot scarf instead (and the scarf is not just a pointless accessory either – I’ve been coughing for like two weeks now, and the constant rain doesn’t help, so a scarf keeps my neck nice and warm.)

Don’t forget to check back tomorrow for the round-up!

Looks great, doesn’t it?
