I haven’t taken part in the Style Imitating Art challenge before but when I spotted Daenel’s post about this month’s inspiration piece, I thought I would join in the fun. The inspiration is Woman with a Coffee Pot by Paul Cezanne. Style Imitating Art is hosted by Daenel of Living Outside the Stacks, Salazar of 14 Shades of Grey, and Terri of Meadow Tree Style.
I immediately knew I would take the easy route (!) and wear blue. I had intended to wear a navy cardigan with my flared jeans but then while I was staring at the artwork, it suddenly screamed at me: denim on denim! Do you see where I’m coming from? After I made that decision, the rest was easy. Not that it’s a complicated outfit lol. It couldn’t get any simpler, could it? Blue flared jeans, blue denim shirt, cream trainers, blue scarf, orange earrings and orange ring. It was the coffee pot, cup and spoon, and the flowers in the background that finished it off though.
If you really look at Woman with a Coffee Pot you can see the colours I’ve chosen. The woman is wearing all blue, and it’s the kind of blue that suggests denim (to me, anyway); there are orange tones in the tablecloth; and cream on the wall, and flowers. She’s wearing a belt that ties at the front which is why I added a little blue scarf that I tied at the neck. And my choice of coffee pot, cup and spoon are obvious! Not to mention the beautiful jasmine flowers behind me. The fragrance is divine! And it was such a lovely day when I took these photos. The sun was gloriously warm. Can you tell lol?
I had so much fun with this Style Imitating Art challenge, that I will certainly do it again. I’m quite excited to see what the next art inspiration will be. In fact, I don’t think I will ever look at a piece of artwork the same again. I have a feeling that I will be looking how it can inspire my next outfit lol!
