It has been quite some time since I have participated in the SIA challenge, but I am determined to do so more often. This painting called to me; it speaks of summer, romance, and the everyday all at once. And I was pleasantly surprised to find some pieces in my closet that drew upon the colors in the painting:
Christopher & Banks top and skirt; Next Era sweater; Nurture shoes; necklace - all thrifted.
Earrings - Premier Designs; George tights - Walmart.
Grane coat - thrifted; gloves - Walmart.
This was the first opportunity I've had to wear my winter white coat, and I discovered it is missing the top button when I put on the coat for the above photo. That must be why the lady sold it for $1 at her yard sale...good for me! I've got plenty of spare buttons; surely there will be one that is a close match.
Since the necklace is rather short, I extended its length by linking in a simple chain bracelet. That made the necklace the perfect length.
For some reason, I found it hilarious that the name of the color of these tights on the package was "shittake". Are they really a mushroom shade? Some Postman despises mushrooms - he calls them a "nasty fungus" - so I told him I was wearing fungus on my legs. He he he!
