SIA: Pearl Earrings

Office Appropriate Outfits - Summer · Style Imitating Art

You would not believe the struggle it was to get photos of this outfit. Seriously. Hurdles I had to overcome included oppressive heat, thunderstorms that were so strong they destroyed a train stop near my apartment, and a husband (aka photographer) who was out of town with our “good” camera.

But, I persevered! Because it’s Style Imitating Art time!

If you need a refresher, this week we’re using The Girl with the Pearl Earring as our inspiration. And, yes, I am wearing pearl earrings.

I bought this dress years and years ago. Seven years ago, actually, on a trip to Sonoma & Napa. Facebook reminded me just yesterday morning how long ago that trip was. It’s still one of my favorite vacations to date.

Anyway, this weekend I was browsing the Tribeca boutique sidewalk sale and realized they had a ton of different dresses in this same blue color. So, if you’re in Chicago and need a blue dress, come on over to the West Loop! I didn’t need another blue dress but I admit I was tempted. Because, like I said last week, I crave dresses in the summer.
