Style Imitating Art: Number 453 by Anne Ryan

As the blogger and photographer behind Living Outside the Stacks, I independently select and write about stuff I love and things I think you’ll enjoy too. Living Outside the Stacks has affiliate and advertising partnerships so I get revenue from sharing this content and from your purchase. Thank you for your support.

Welcome to Style Imitating Art. I hope you’re visit means you’re planning to join us, because we’d definitely love to have you…


Style Imitating Art is hosted by Salazar {14 Shades of Grey}, 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 outfits. And that Wednesday, the curator shares all of the submissions on her blog.


This week’s image was chosen by me.

I chose this image because it’s soothing and calming, but bright and summery. I kind of felt like we needed a bit of brightness after the past few weeks.

I have no real rhyme or reason for this outfit, other than COVID has changed the way I dress. For the most part, I’ve been living in graphic tees and jeans since March {when we started working from home}. We returned to work a little over two weeks ago, so I’m easing back into my work wardrobe. It ain’t easy, y’all.

If you saw my earlier post, you know I’ve chopped off all of my hair. Again. I think I need to do a separate post on this because that’s a journey in itself.

Are you still working from home? How has COVID changed your style?


Make sure you stop by and visit my co-hosts at 14 Shades of Grey, and Fierce Fashion Blog. You’ll definitely want to see their interpretations as well.


Next week’s inspiration piece will be posted on Monday, 22 June. Send a picture of your Style Imitating Art inspired outfit to me at by Tuesday, 30 June and I’ll share the submissions on my blog on Wednesday, 1 July.

You don’t have to have a blog to join, you can share your images on Instagram as well! Just tag Kim, Salazar, and me or use the hashtag #StyleImitatingArt so we know you’re there. We’d love to see how you interpret the inspiration piece.

Now go play in your closet,
