SIA round-up: Una and the Lion

It’s time for the Style Imitating Art (SIA) round-up! Once again, here’s what I chose:

Una and the Lion, painted by British painter Briton Rivière (1840-1920), depicts figures from a story in Edmund Spenser’s epic 1590s poem, The Faerie Queene. Una represents “Truth,” and the lion represents “Honor.” You can read a translation of the story here. Also, click on the picture below for a larger image.

First up is SIA co-founder Salazar @ 14 Shades of Grey, who put together this outfit from her Iceland travel wardrobe. Salazar is also a Leo, and there are sheep in the background (!!!), so there are both lion and lamb in her photo! LOVE IT. I also love Salazar’s blanket scarf.

Next is SIA co-host Erin @ Loop Looks, who was inspired by a previous outfit of mine, which is a super sweet nod to my upcoming birthday! 😀 Plus, she’s wearing the cargo vest we swapped a few years ago (mine was too short, hers was too long, so we swapped). Erin joked that the photo should be called “Erin and the Chewie” — brilliant!

Next up is Rabbit Style News with a work-appropriate outfit in shades of black and tan. Pinning this on my “Easy Work Outfits” board on Pinterest!

Finally, there’s me in shades of cream with cognac accessories. You can read more about my sartorial choices and closeups here in this post.

Thanks everyone for another great round-up of style inspiration! A small round-up this time but all with really different outfits — I always love the variety in SIA round-ups!

Next Monday, Erin @ Loop Looks will be back to curate the next SIA challenge.
