SIA interpretation: Leopard

Time for my Style Imitating Art (SIA) interpretation! For this week’s SIA challenge, Jess @ Animated Cardigan chose a bold, vibrant piece of art titled “Leopard I” by artist Megan Carn, who is based in Columbia, South Carolina.

My outfit came together quickly. I instantly thought my animal print pencil skirt would be perfect for the challenge, and then I added my light blue cardigan and a navy tee.

I pulled in the red of the inspiration painting with red lipstick. I chose simple gold hoops as a classic, finishing touch.

Gotta admit, I felt pretty great in this SIA outfit, comfortable and put-together. I NEVER would have thought to pair my light blue cardigan with this skirt, but I really liked the effect when it all came together. The colors in the animal print are a little different and unexpected to begin with, and the light blue really popped against it. Totally fit my “comfy + classic with a bit of quirk” style outlook.

So there is still time to participate in SIA! Just send a pic of an outfit inspired by this week’s SIA choice to Jess at animatedcardigan [at] by tonight, October 19. Jess will post the SIA round-up shortly after on her blog, Animated Cardigan.

    Wow! I never would have thought to put the light blue cardigan with that skirt, either, but I really like it. I wonder how my light blue cardigan would look with my traditionally-colored leopard print skirt.

    What a fun idea, and I love that it made you try a combination you wouldn’t ordinarily. I think it turned out to be such a pretty combo, the leopard print with the mint-colored cardigan!
