It’s SIA time again, and there’s still time to participate in this week’s challenge. Just click here @ Animated Cardigan for all the details. This week, the challenge stems from a bright blue & yellow Roy Lichtenstein painting of the Oval Office.
So I posed in front of my own office, my home study. It’s not oval, but it does have a bump-out wall along the back side with the windows (the wall with the Garfield cat drawing and magnetic file folders). So I have more of a hexagon-shaped office. Boom, upgrade! 😉
Right away, I had the idea of using my yellow, black and grey polka-dotted peplum top. The pattern is oversize and graphic, which seemed to fit well with the painting inspiration. But royal blue? Then my internal light bulb switched on, and I had the idea to layer the peplum top over my bright blue dress. YES! I can also see layering a black blazer or cardigan over this combination to make it more work-appropriate (which is why I’m also linking up with this week’s “Spotlight Weekly” challenge, as the theme is “work style”).
Details: Blue dress: Old Navy, gift-carded this spring / Peplum top & black skinny belt: JCPenney, gift-carded this spring / Black patent leather heels: Payless, winter
And here’s a couple of other ways I’ve worn this blue dress, for both work and casual looks:
