Welcome to Style Imitating Art. How are things in your area? I woke up this morning to snow and ice. I’m not happy. I was not made for cold weather. I like sweater weather, not parka weather. This is unbearable. Yes, I know it’s winter, but I can’t handle it.


Style Imitating Art is hosted by Salazar {14 Shades of Grey}, Terri {Meadow Tree Style}, 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. Participants submit their art inspired outfits with the curator by 10 PM Tuesday and, that Wednesday, the curator shares all of the submissions on her blog.


This week’s image was selected by me. I chose it because I was thinking about my grandma and her love of coffee {which I inherited}.

My Grandma

The painting is very much how I’ll always remember her. She used to come home from work, turn on the percolator, light a cigarette, and wait for Dynasty to come on…


Paul Cezanne: Woman with a Coffee Pot

There are so many options with this painting: blues, oranges, creams, and whites. There are also textures like plaid and metallics, with a mix of prints: florals and woods. What do you think you’ll wear? I can’t wait to see.

Send a picture of your Style Imitating Art inspired outfit to me at by Tuesday, 23 March and I’ll share the submissions on my blog on Wednesday, 24 March.

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

Now go play in your closet,
