Art to Outfit- Sunday Brunch

August 24, 2012

I came across this beautiful painting by Charlotte Hardy.  I find the swans, flowers, and colors very romantic.  (Did you notice there is only one black little bird in the very regal cage while all the others birdies and swans are outside? Hmm...I wonder what is going on....anyhoot..) Charlotte is an English artist who is very drawn to pattern and color, just like I am.  Maybe this is why I immediately felt a connection with this painting. All her works are beautiful.  You can check them out here.   So as an Ode to this piece I prepared this little femine, romantic and elegant Sunday Brunch outfit.

Aside from that gorgeous painting the shoes are what I want your attention focused on.  Aren't they just beautiful, beautiful! They are on super sale if you need something sweet like this.  I, of course, took the bird theme quite literally from the painting and found this cute peplum dress with a wonderful price as well.  The Elva Fields' necklaces always add such excitement to the neck area and they are just jaw droppingly beautiful.   And well the American Apparel leather clutch is just too good for words (practical, inexpensive, good quality, and cute!  seriously what more could you ask for?)There you have it...Art to outfit.

Enjoy the last days of summer- put on your dresses and sandals. Take advantage of this warm weather while you can.

Happy Friday!!  Any exciting plans you want to share with us?  I'm going to a fun concert.  Maybe I will take some photos and show you all next week.
