Ruffles as Art

Office Appropriate Outfits - Summer · Style Imitating Art

First, don’t forget to vote for your favorite outfit of May! Will there be an upset like there was for April??

For this week’s Style Imitating Art challenge, Salazar gave us something really unique: pick a paper sculpture by Peter Gentenaar. The instant I saw his sculptures I immediately knew I wanted to wear this cardigan.

Swirls and ruffles and colors. They are so beautiful! My outfit doesn’t do them justice but I’m working with what I’ve got. Meaning I took two of my ruffliest pieces and paired them with a white skirt so that the focus would be on the green cardigan and camisole.

Actually, I think this is only the second time either the cardigan or the camisole have made it to the blog! So, thank you Salazar and Peter for the inspiration.
