SIA Outfit: Bible Quilt

Office Appropriate Outfits - Winter · Style Imitating Art

Happy Monday, everyone! I’m still in Tampa right now but I can’t be remiss in participating in this week’s Style Imitating Art series. Especially now that I’m one of the hosts!

Remember last week when I posted the beautiful “Bible Quilt”? Here’s a reminder:


Scarf – Le Tote (same) | Necklace – Le Tote (same) | Sweater – LOFT via Goodwill (similar) | Skirt – The Limited (similar) | Shoes – J. Crew Factory (similar

I knew when Jen posted this quilt that I wanted to wear neutrals, specifically gray and tan. But I didn’t know exactly how I wanted to pair them. I tried a few different outfits and in the end settled on this gray skirt with a oatmeal colored sweater and my latest Le Tote accessories.

I actually loved this scarf so much the last time I had it in a Tote that I ended up buying it when I couldn’t stop thinking about it. Plus, you know, there are animals depicted in the quilt and this scarf is made of faux animal fur. It kind of makes sense, right?


The necklace added a much needed bit of color. Since I don’t own anything orange I thought the corals and pinks in this necklace were as close as I was going to get.

And, yes, I’m more dressed up than I needed to be for my job but, hey, I have a closet full of skirts. Why not wear them? With fleeced lined tights, of course. Because it’s Chicago. In winter.

Oh, and guess what! Next week I get to pick the art for the Style Imitating Art challenge! I hope you’ll think about participating. Remember, you don’t have to have a blog to share your photos with me! sc

    This is great Erin! I love your interpretation of “Bible Quilt”. Your gray neutrals go great with the figures in the quilt. And the bit of red and orange in your necklace is just perfect as there is a bit of that seen in the quilt as well.

    Like I told Jen last week, this was a great pick for SIA, besides the fact that it honors Black History Month as well as a great woman, but also because it allows for a lot of freedom and interpretation.
    You’ll see how I did it tomorrow in the round-up (don’t mind my grainy image; iPod cams aren’t the greatest photography tools) but it still captures what I did for this SIA. Looking forward to seeing what everyone else came up with!

    And yay! Looking forward to seeing your pick for your very first SIA choice! And of course I’ll participate! 🙂

        Thanks Erin. Yeah, I decided to change my photo all together, since I had the opportunity to do so (these came out way better than my first ones) and wanted to be a little more subtle with the color like the way you did. And on top of that, I wanted to show off one of my most prized possessions; my friendship bracelets!
