ABOUT STYLE IMITATING ART

Style Imitating Art is hosted by Salazar {14 Shades of Gray}, Kim {Fierce Fashion Blog}, and me. Style Imitating Art challenges us to draw style inspiration from pieces of art. Every other Monday one of us selects an inspiration image and we each post the image on our blogs. The following Monday we share our art inspired outfit. My main tip for participating is not to just look at the colors but look at the textures, think about complimentary colors, etc. In other words, you don’t have to be literal in your interpretation. It’s all about looking at the items in your closet in new and creative ways — mixing colors and patterns and just having fun.

THE CURATOR

This week’s image is curated by Salazar {14 Shades of Gray}. Salazar is “…a stagnating packet of crisps {context} trying to change by adding more colors to my wardrobe and my life.”

INSPIRATION ART WORK

Salazar chose this image because she wanted “…something summery, and since I’ve been painting a lot of watercolors lately, it’s great to find an old watercolor painting that still retains its soft but bright colors.”

I see shades of blue, grey, taupe, rust, green, and yellow. There are even hints of purple and black. So much room for interpretation, don’t you think?

What will you wear? I can’t wait to see.

MY LOOK

Hi, I hope you had a great weekend. I spent the weekend in Chicago, celebrating my cousin’s wedding. Did you look at the photo? Aren’t they the most beautiful couple ever? We also got the opportunity to hang out with some old friend’s of my husband’s. It was so much fun, but I’m super exhausted.

I don’t wear pale yellow very often, but this top is one of my favorites. I like the easy, relaxed fit. It’s great for days when I need to look pulled together but casual. Even though I’ve worn it alone in the images above, I think the top could easily be paired with a blazer. What do you think?
