About Style Imitating Art
Welcome to this edition of Style Imitating Art!

Style Imitating Art challenges us to look to create an outfit using art as inspiration.  In addition to colors, you may also want to look at textures, mood, style, genre.  There are no "wrong" outfits, and you don't need to be literal.

The Inspiration
The current artwork selection is Le Quai Saint Michel Et Notre Dame (The Dock Saint Michel and Notre Dame) by Maximilien Luce.

The Curator
This selection is curated by me because of the recent tragedy at  Notre Dame which is such a piece of history, repository of art and Christian and religious symbols.  Combining that with my fondness for impressionist art made this the perfect piece.  There are so many colors from which to choose, lots of blue and purple shades, texture, stripes, dots... 

My Look

The colors that jumped out at me right away were purple and peach, so I knew this cardigan was what I wanted to feature.  The denim/chambray backdrop was also an easy call because of all of the blue in the artwork.  The cardigan was a bit of a splurge, but I liked it so much, I figured I would get plenty of wear out of it. You can see the print is made up of orange flowers and purple leaves.  My Old Navy boyfriends have proven to be a favorite as they are so darned easy to pull on and go--no fusing necessary.  The chambray tank was found on eBay last year.  The simple druzy stone/tassel necklace was made by me.  I like rose gold as it seems to harmonize with most of my clothing, so I once again reached for my triangle earrings and stack of Alex & Ani bracelets.  Sandals from Nordstrom Rack.

I didn't realize this designer belt was knocked off, but when I saw Carrie at Curly Crafty Mom had one, I did some investigating.  Shhh, it'll be our secret!
