It feels a bit odd to go back to any kind of normal blogging after my last few posts, but time moves on and I will have to go back to writing about everyday things at some point, however strange it feels. An outfit post seemed like an easy way back into it.
Today’s style imitating art submission features a top that I literally bought yesterday! Last night, I thought I would at least check what the inspiration is this time, and when I realised the top I had purchased mere hours before was perfect it almost felt like a sign. Here is the inspiration:
The painting is “Melody (Musica)” by Kate Bunce.
And here’s my interpretation:
This photo is so dark… but with the window blinds open the window was too bright and I could barely be seen. One day I will find a good place to take these photos (and a better way to prop my camera up so I can!). The top looks blue here for some reason, but it’s actually dark green. Hopefully you can see it better in this photo:
I absolutely love the flowers on it. Autumnal but still bright and cheerful.
I don’t have anything quite as blingy as the lady in the painting, but I thought this necklace worked, at least in terms of colour (and again the top looks blue… I promise it’s not!):
Colour-wise, my skirt doesn’t really fit the painting, but I thought the style worked… flowy and kind of folky (like her sleeves). Jan has a concert with one of his choirs tonight, and this is the outfit I’m wearing for that. It feels nice and autumny.
The top was purchased from C&A yesterday, I don’t remember where the skirt is from (I’ve had it ages) and the necklace was a Christmas gift.
If you have an outfit you think would represent this painting, put it together (you can either wear it or do a flat lay if you prefer not to have photos of yourself on the Internet) and send a photo to email@example.com by Tuesday, 23 October. She will then round up all the submissions on her blog on Wednesday. You don’t have to do a blog post of your outfit or even have a blog to join in.
What do you think of my interpretation? Does it remind you of the painting in any way?
