I swear, our dog has an uncanny sixth sense for knowing when I’m taking pictures for the blog. I wanted to participate in this week’s Style Imitating Art linkup and realized when I got home that I didn’t have any full-length shots of my outfit. My camera is being funky right now, so this phone picture (propped up on my bathroom counter- hence the white space at the bottom), is the best I have. I got the phone set up, hit the timer button, and got into position, and before I knew it, I heard the running click of dog toenails, and the below shot was born. At least he’s cute, right?
Ruffled tank top: Target (via Goodwill)
Maxi skirt: Versona Accessories
Leggings (unseen): Old Navy
Boots: Steve Madden
I loved my earrings today! (But ew, sorry about the hair on the shot. There’s a difference between keeping it real and not editing. I fall into the latter, unfortunately…). I got them at a fall craft fair last year from a lady who had made all kinds of Scrabble tile jewelry. I wish I still had her card because I’d like another pair!
So now for the Style Imitating Art bit. Here is this week’s painting, At the Piano by James McNeill Whistler
And here is my interpretation, complete with a goofy face…
This was a phone picture too. It’s amazing what the right lighting can do! Also, special thanks to two of my best guy friends from college for arranging my “photo shoot”. Gotta love the people who you can ask to take your picture at a piano on a stage without giving an explanation! 🙂
