Building a Capsule Wardrobe by Starting with Art: Version 2 of Peripheral Vision 2 by Elis Cooke

As soon as I did the earlier version of this painting (found here), people emailed me asking that I use a different mix of colors, and that I do a business travel version of a wardrobe. So I'm combining requests here - I hope it works out!


I kept many of the elements of the original travel outfit, just swapping out the sportier tee shirt with something just a smidge dressier, and then coordinating earrings and a scarf with this new top.

pink top – Uniqlo, earrings – Forzieri, grey trousers – Planet, watch – Relic, cardigan –
 Michael Michael Kors, scarf – Manipuri , woven flats – Paolo, canvas tote – Urban Travel

grey long-sleeved tee – Mint Velvet, silver hoop earrings – Topshop, bracelet – Topshop
dotted tee shirt – Proenza Schouler, pink shirt – Equipment, “shark tooth” necklace – Alexis Bittar
grey skirt – Max Mara, cardigan – Uniqlo, Hermes Chasse en Inde,  silver boots – Gucci, trousers –

  1. I'm bookmarking this one! As my hair turns from warm brown to ash brown/silver, I am transitioning to these colors.

    Very pretty.

  9. This is one of my favorites from you! Though the colors aren't great for me (warm redhead), I looooove the clothing silhouettes and the accessories. Great one :)
