Welcome to my interpretation for this round of Style Imitating Art.
A Little Background
Style Imitating Art is hosted by Salazar of 14 Shades of Grey, Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge, 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. The following Wednesday, the curator shares all the submissions on her blog.

Salazar picked this round’s work.
Sunspots by Cuno Amiet
I decided to come up with something and wear it to a Missouri Retired Teachers Association meeting. I went with the two main colors: green and white. My green is slightly more subdued because I just don’t have too many bright green items in my closet. I then substituted the yellow in the painting with gold accessories. The blue was left out.
This was a good time to use white pants as a transition item. Although I’ve already put most of my whites away, I decided to keep a couple of pants out just in case I decided to wear them. These straight-legged American Eagle was one of the two pairs.
To pair with it, I picked one of my Covered Perfectly tops. This top is made in the USA using a micro-Model fabric which makes it very soft. Before she sold the company last year, Pauline Durbin very kindly sent me occasionally a top to review. I always loved her top and bought quite a few on sale when I thought she was closing down shop. Fortunately, someone decided to buy the shop and Covered Perfectly lives on. You can even find my top HERE (which also happens to be on sale).
Because of the “sun”, everything else is gold, including my Spring Step shoes. Although Spring Step has wonderful shoes, these are pretty old and no longer available. My burnished gold Coach tote is just a really good everyday bag that gets pulled out when I need a metallic neutral.
My pendant and cuff have been on here time and time again. They are by Kansas City designer Georgina Herrera. My ring is by Brighton but is no longer available.
I actually wore this outfit to two different things and enjoyed pulling out some things that I have never worn together. This was the perfect transition look for me. It took me from a cool morning to a warmer afternoon and back to a cool evening.
That wraps it up for me so now it’s your turn.
I hope this art inspires you to create a look and that you will join us. Send a photo of your SIA-inspired outfit along with a small blurb on how you were inspired to Salazar whose email is firstname.lastname@example.org by tomorrow. She will share the submissions on her blog this Wednesday.
Anyone can participate and you certainly do not have to have a blog.
If you do share your inspirations on Instagram use the hashtag #StyleImitatingArt so we know you are there. You can also tag us in the images. Our Instagram names are @terrigardner_meadowtree, @14shadesofgrey, and @shelbeeontheedge.
Salazar will be putting together her review to be published Wednesday. If you have an entry, please send it to her at email@example.com by tomorrow. Hope to see you there!
Take care and style on!
