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.

I want to apologize for sharing this post so late. I had to go out of town and am just now getting home…


Welcome to Style Imitating Art.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.

I chose this week’s inspiration piece.


Girl Embroidering, Seated in a Garden

I chose this image because I like the colors and the focus on embroidery, which is totally my thing.


Marsha {marsha in the middle}

How pretty in pink is Marsha? Don’t you love the sweet embroidery? And look at her shoes. Adore.

Reni {reni’s odds and sods}

Irene’s outfit is so fun. I love the mix of pattern with the embroidery – so edgy. And look at the boots! Love love love.

Shelbee {shelbee on the edge}

So much color! And so much fun.


Salazar {14 shades of grey}

Between the head wrap, the cute sweater, and that little brooch, I don’t know what to appreciate first. Love it all.

Terri {meadowtree style}

I am so digging the tonal pink embroidery on Terri’s jacket. And, y’all, look at those sexy boots!






You can see my first set of embroidered tops here.


Visit my cohosts: Salazar at 14 Shades of Grey and Terri and MeadowTree Style. I know you’ll love their interpretations!


Terri will be sharing her inspiration piece on Monday, 6 December.
