SIA: Golden inspiration (take 2)

My third blog anniversary is coming up tomorrow (!!!), so if you haven’t already, make sure you enter the giveaway of your choice of a Greg Michaels leather wallet clutch! Giveaway ends tonight at 10 pm PST. I’ll post the giveaway winner tomorrow on my blogiversary.

And now for my second outfit inspired by Salazar’s SIA choice this week. (I also thought about including this tan-and-black floral top that I wore for a previous SIA challenge, but I figured two outfits was enough. 😉 )

Salazar @ 14 Shades of Grey curated this week’s challenge, and she picked a modern painting, “Golden,” part of a series called “The Flowers” by artist Crystal Liu. Check out yesterday’s post for my first outfit inspired by this gorgeous series of paintings.

I see this as a more casual outfit inspiration, and I wore it for a “casual Friday” day at work. It all started with the shoes, which has a print of tiny little dots of varying shades of white and tan. I thought the pattern perfectly echoed a common thread throughout Crystal Liu’s “The Flowers” series. Then came the grey jeans, and then my Top 10 remix item, my library stamp tee. I pulled in my bronze scarf to call back to the shoes and finished off with another Top 10 remix item, my crystal drop earrings.

I felt super comfortable in this “casual Friday” outfit, and I loved how it echoed all the colors in the inspiration painting and series. And just for comparison, here are the two outfits I wore inspired by this week’s SIA painting:

      Awww, thanks Apryl! I really wasn’t sure at first where I would go with this challenge, and then all these ideas came flooding in! 🙂

    The metallic neutrals of the art and your outfits really appeal to me! If I had anything in my closet in those colors/fabrics, I would have loved to have participated in SIA. Perhaps I ought to go shopping! 🙂

    Nailed it. Love your date due slip tee. Love the two versions of this outfit. Have been working full time lately and have had no time to play in my closet but hope to be able to join you for another SIA, soo. You look super cute.
