Style Imitating Art: Blue and Brown

I wasn’t planning on doing another outfit post so soon, but then I saw the SIA inspiration and instantly had an idea for what I could wear, so here we are.

The inspiration for this round is a photo that host Daenel took herself. How cool is that?

I owned every item I’m wearing in my outfit before we moved to Switzerland, which means they’re at least four years old.  Also, two of the items have already featured in past SIA’s – the brown skirt just last week and the brown long-sleeved top back in November. But without further ado, I shall show you what I came up with:

brown and blue outfit

I can’t remember where the skirt is from, the long-sleeved top I think is C&A (or maybe H&M) and the blue top is Primark. The boots are from a shop called Humanic and are Marc O’Polo brand (they were half price and I adore them!).

Close ups of my jewellery:

The necklace was a gift from Jan years ago. The earrings were also a gift – I think from my dad. They’re Tiger’s Eye, which I was always under the impression was the birthstone for Leo (does anyone remember those zodiac birthstone birthday cards you used to get? Leo was always Tiger’s Eye), although the Internet seems to be under the impression that Tiger’s Eye is Gemini. I don’t care – I shall continue to claim it for Leo.

If it weren’t for this link up, it would never have occurred to me to combine brown and blue, but I actually think it looks good together. Thanks for the inspiration, Daenel!

What would you wear for this challenge? If you would like to take part, send a photo of your outfit to livingoutsidethestacks@gmail.com by Tuesday, 29 January. You don’t have to have a blog and you can also just send a photo of the clothes if you prefer not to appear in the picture yourself. There will be a round-up of all submissions on Wednesday, 20 January on Daenels’s blog.

  1. Ah, this outfit is so perfect for the inspiration- the combination of blue and brown IS really pleasing and your necklace and earrings capture the texture of the wood grain so brilliantly. Plus, you didn’t mention it but the place you chose to take the photos was so perfect- the combination of wooden frames and the er-liney windows really reminds me of the building she captured, plus the wooden floor and even the colours of bit of bed we can see AND the picture on the right! It’s all perfect!

  2. I like blue and brown together. I had a hand knitted jumper that would’ve been perfect for this. I made it myself but I rarely wore it so it went in the charity bag.
    I love tiger’s eye, it’s one of those things you can look at for ages, and that necklace is very pretty.
