Today I have another style imitating art outfit for you! This one is “Calm Summer Evening” by Isaac Levitan.

This outfit is also a great way to wear simple pieces such as cropped pants and a short sleeved shirt without looking like a schlub. A textured tee with tailored pants always brings an outfit up a notch.

Although, I suppose that bright green pants do not really call to mind a calm evening. But, these pants have been in the dry cleaner pile all summer so I knew I wanted to wear them before all our summer evenings are gone!

And, yes, this short-sleeved lace top is new. It’s another one of my Fashion Outlets of Chicago purchases.  I’d been looking for a short-sleeved lace top to replace my long-sleeved one that’s too small for me. This one from the Banana Republic Outlet was exactly what I wanted.
