SIA interpretation: Farewell at the Bridge of the Hanging Rainbow

It’s time for my interpretation for the Style Imitating Art (SIA) challenge, and this one is really special. It is the last SIA challenge curated by Erin @ Loop Looks.

SIA inspiration:

Erin chose a really appropriate artwork for her lat time curating SIA. It’s called “Farewell at the Bridge of the Hanging Rainbow,” a Chinese handscroll painted during the Ming dynasty, circa 1508.

My interpretation:

This one wasn’t hard at all for me. The color palette is all neutrals — grey and black and beige with pops of red — and that’s what I’ve got in my outfit.

Grey in the leopard print infinity scarf
Black in the sweater shell, pointelle socks, flats
Beige in the blazer
The pop of red? My fingernails! 😉

I wore these pointelle socks — which are actually knee socks — because it was still pretty chilly. And it’s always colder in the mornings, which is when I travel to work by bus. Even though the main reason was practicality, I really liked the little extra texture the socks added to my outfit.

And I am a completist, so here’s the outfit without the blazer, so you can see this sweater shell in its own right (I got it on sale this past December, before I started my year-long, self-imposed shopping ban to buy new clothing).

      Oh, interesting comment about the scarf being the crucial piece to this outfit! I think you are right, because it is the final piece that I thought of. I had mentally put together the blazer, the shell, the jeans, but still something was missing — and that’s when I thought of the scarf. 🙂

      Thank you, Daenel! Neutrals are more interesting when there are different textures involved, I have found. And I have been enjoying putting on nail polish again — especially when I am teaching and need to use the document camera, hah! It makes such a difference (even in self-confidence) when I know my hands and fingers will be magnified to the rest of the class, and I’ve got nicer nail polish on. 😉
