Today I used a painting by an artist named Shawn Salinger who participated in our gallery show a couple of months ago as inspiration for my outfit (If you haven't read about the show you can go here). The painting is in the image below on the right (I couldn't get a good shot of it today):
I love the colors in this piece. The reds and oranges go so nicely with the aqua and green tones. It also makes me think of a flaming hotdog. So, that's nice. Today I took the main color in the painting (mauve/red) and made it the main focus of my outfit- my dress. Just as the red is accessorized by other colors in the painting, I added hints of other tones in what I put together. I really like how the blue of my glasses complements the warmer tones in the red and purple. My only wish is that I had a different belt. But, oh well. I had been saving this dress to wear later in the fall and early winter, but when I woke up this morning is was 43* and frosty outside! This, paired with my grey overcoat (not pictured) ended up being very weather appropriate. There have already been snow reports further north!
