About Style Imitating Art
Style Imitating Art is hosted bi-weekly by Daenel~Living Outside the Stacks, Salazar~14 Shades of Grey and me.  Style Imitating Art challenges us to look to create an outfit using art as an inspiration.  In addition to colors, you may also want to consider textures, style, mood, genre.  There are no "wrong" outfits, and you don't need to be literal.  

The Inspiration
The current artwork selection is an oil on canvas cir. 1885-86 by Paul Cézzane.  For more info see The Met website.

This selection was curated by Daenel at Living Outside the Stacks.  

My Look
This artwork looks very calming to me.  There are lots of varying shades of blue, so I wanted to capture the subtleties with, what else, but denim.  There's very few things more comforting than soft denim.  

I started with my Wild Fable jeans that you got a sneak peek of on Friday.  Then, it was noted that the crotch is really too long.  Since Target has suspended their returns (I don't blame them) and I have lots of time, I'm working on fixing them.  Added to that is a simple chambray tank, a contrast peach jacket and sandals picking up other accents in the painting, tied together (no pun intended) with a Johnny Was scarf.  I'm very happy with how this outfit came out.
