It’s time for my interpretation for this week’s Style Imitating Art (SIA) challenge!
It was Erin’s turn to curate, and she found an original score card/program from the 1908 World Series, to honor the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series for the first time since 1908! Plus, the vintage card highlights men’s clothing on the score card. 🙂
And there’s still time to participate in this week’s SIA challenge. Both bloggers and non-bloggers are invited to participate. Just send a photo — selfies or flat lays also just fine — of an outfit inspired by this week’s inspiration artwork. Send a photo to Erin at firstname.lastname@example.org by tonight, and Erin will post the round-up on her blog, Loop Looks, tomorrow morning.
My interpretation’s starting point was my librarian baseball tee, which also happened to have most of the colors in the score card. Win-win! I thought about wearing my red ankle pants, but I decided to go with these darker tan trousers because they had more of a menswear feel to them. I also wore pearl earring studs, to subtly call out the shape of baseballs. (Yes, I really do think of those kinds of details.)
At the last minute, I finished off the outfit with my striped canvas flats, to echo the red-striped socks the dapper man is wearing on the score card.
I wore this casual outfit this past weekend, to go out for breakfast and do some errands and to just get out of the house.
On our way to coffee and breakfast, we stopped at a local park which has a baseball diamond. I thought it would make an appropriate backdrop for photos. I definitely was feeling the more dramatic and moody pictures, and the backdrop lent itself to that.
We didn’t bring any baseball equipment with us, but Sam challenged me to throw a pitch, anyway. I obliged, and he captured a couple of fun pics. 🙂
