SIA: The Great Mystery of Water by Christi Belcourt

The Great Mystery of Water by Christi Belcourt

This week’s Style Imitating Art inspiration piece is The Great Mystery of Water by Christi Belcourt. Style Imitating Art is hosted by Salazar (14 Shades of Grey), Terri (Meadow Tree Style) and Shelbee (Shelbee on the Edge). Style Imitating Art challenges us to draw style inspiration from pieces of art. Every other Monday one of the hosts selects an inspiration image and they each post the image on their blogs. The following Monday they share their art inspired outfits. Participants submit their art inspired outfits with the curator by 10pm Tuesday and, that Wednesday, the curator shares all of the submissions on her blog. This week, the curator is Terri and you can read all about why she chose this piece of artwork by clicking right here.

I was immediately drawn to The Great Mystery of Water by Christi Belcourt because, well…it’s beautiful! There is so much depth to the colours, and I love how the artist celebrates the beauty of the natural world. Even though I’m not a huge outdoorsy person, I do adore nature in all its glory. Which is why I probably chose to style my new handbag (a gift from MIL) for this week’s theme. I know it doesn’t have fish on it, but it is still very nature inspired with its images of beautiful peacocks. Plus, the colour was absolutely spot on.

It was clearly the blues of the water that were pulling me in to this artwork, so that’s what I went with, choosing to wear the silky, bright blue, wide-legged trousers I bought a couple of years ago from Bershka. I love these trousers. What I don’t love is the way they crease at the slightest bend of the knee! It drives me nuts…and is probably the reason I’ve hardly worn them (plus the fact that they’re so long, I have to wear heels).

I also picked out the cream and dark colours of the fish in my cream and black wedge sandals (Aldo), and cream vest top (H&M). I tied it all together with my trusty denim jacket (Primark) and blue necklace (MIL). I love how the outfit came together, and I feel like it’s a pretty good interpretation of The Great Mystery of Water, don’t you? Did you take part in this week’s SIA challenge? What was it about the artwork that appealed to you?

    This is a gorgeous look and represents the artwork beautifully. The slacks look really nice on you, so I’d encourage you to wear them more. Your MIL has excellent taste. What a beautiful purse!

    I think this was my favorite of all the entries. This is such a cool, clean modern look and perfect for the painting. I especially loved the reel that you put on Insta picking out the articles,

    Those pants may be tricky to wear, but you are a tall drink of *water* in them! The silky fabric has a fluidity that is perfect to represent water.

      You’re so sweet, Shelbee! Thank you so much! I think I wore the same trousers for a water theme for the Fab40s…a bite predictable but they are perfect for it lol!

    GAH, Suzy!!! This look is so absolutely fabulous!!! I love it all…even the crinkled trousers! I say go with the wrinkles…just call them laugh lines on your pants! That bag…I have to say, if you ever tire of your MIL, send her across the pond to me, won’t you? Although we’d probably be closer to being sisters!! Love your shoes, the jacket, and the necklace! Is that your pool? If so, I’m even more jealous now!!!

      Marsha, your comments are always the best! Laugh lines on your pants?! That’s hilarious!! You crack me up so much!
      And yes, that is my pool. It’s just a little one but perfect for when it’s really hot in August. But we’re moving house in about six weeks…just to a rental (right next door) whilst we build our new home. And the rental has a bigger pool which is gorgeous lol!!
      Thank you for your lovely comments.

    Great outfit. Love the trousers and bag (that MIL of yours… what a treasure), but I particularly like the shoes. I tried such shoes as well, but I fell off them all the time.
