SIA: Screams + stripes

Time for my Style Imitating Art (SIA) interpretation! This week’s inspiration was curated by Jess @ Animated Cardigan, and she chose a classic, Edvard Munch’s The Scream (1893), and the painting’s color palette is so vibrant.

By the way, there’s still time to participate in SIA… Just send a photo of an outfit inspired by this week’s SIA choice to this week’s curator, so that means send your pics to Jess by tonight, at She’ll post the round-up shortly after on her blog, Animated Cardigan.

I realized that almost all of the colors in this vibrant painting were represented in my new striped dress from Lands’ End!

The painting has lighter tones on top and gets darker toward the bottom, which is also the case in my outfit. I wore the brown leggings under the dress because it was a bit chilly that morning (and I was riding the bus to work), but I think they also help tie into the painting.

      That is so nice of you — thank you so much, Les, for your comment! It thrills me when readers share why they follow my blog. I’m still so humbled that ANYONE at all (other than my mom and my husband) follows my blog! 😉

    Love it Jen! I love the mixing of patterns and great take on the theme. The little stars on your cardigan are very cute. I’d really be interested in joining in on the SIA challenges. Is this a possibility? Let me know either way! 🙂

      Yes, definitely, we welcome one and all for the SIA challenges! The challenges are curated on a rotating basis (Jess @ Animated Cardigan, Salazar @ 14 Shades of Grey, and me), and we post info about the challenges on Mondays. So next Monday will be the next inspiration painting, and the following Monday is the round-up of participants. 🙂

    So bummed I couldn’t get my act together for this week because The Scream is such a great choice for inspiration. Your pattern mixing is spot on with the cardigan and that dress.
