For father's day my dad requested a trip to the Seattle Asian Art Museum which is showing, among others, a wonderful exhibit "Deco Japan: Shaping Art and Culture, 1920-1945". I personally adore Deco art so I really enjoyed it!
After looking at the site for the exhibit, one of the pieces that was posted stuck in my head (#3). I feel like it sums up my current style preferences quite perfectly: a lovely mix of soft and geometric, and even the color scheme itself (cream, pink, light blue, gray/taupe, black) is right up my alley these days. So my outfit for the day was inspired by that piece, complete with Deco clutch and earrings.
There was rain in the forecast, but it only dropped in the morning; I wore my cream trench out for breakfast with hubby before heading to Seattle, but happily by the time we were done in the museum the rain had passed. So the trench sat in the car while we all enjoyed a nice stroll around the Volunteer Park grounds. I had thought about wearing my gray suede ankle strap pumps, but with impending rain decided to go with white leather and actually better liked the crisper look the white gave. Finished the look off with retro sunnies, and wore plum lip gloss for extra color interest.
Big high happiness factor! And a rare sighting: non-weekend casual outfit with blue skinny jeans, which I actually didn't own until this pair. This baggy and ultra faded pair gets a pass, but otherwise I plan to stick to my usual black, gray, and white skinny jeans along with the occasional fun bright/printed denim. But no standard blues, just not my thing :)
