When I picked the “Leap Year Frog” painting for my Style Imitating Art choice I fully admit I already had an outfit picked out and photographed that I knew would fit my choice perfectly.
A few weeks ago Jason and I went to the Garfield Park Conservatory to get out of the Chicago cold and take some photos. Neither of us had been there before so it was also a fun afternoon of exploring. I took a bag full of outfits I’d already worn to work with the goal of recreating them among the flowers and plants.
I actually got the idea for this outfit from Cotton, Cashmere & Cat Hair and I thought that photographing my version with a green background versus her white, snowy background would make for a fun change.
As for how this goes with my Style Imitating Art painting choice, well, the red is pretty clear and the green comes in with the background. Plus, I took these photos in the tropical sections of the Conservatory. Frogs live in the tropics, right?
Don’t forget to come back tomorrow to see the full round up of outfits the SIA participants created!
