More and more ideas for this particular painting continue to be suggested – today, I’m addressing the possibility of using this lovely work as the basis of a summer travel wardrobe.
For the travel outfit, I kept the basic idea of a cardigan “suit” and a contrasting tee shirt, but I lightened up the cardigan considerably, as well as finding a lighter short-sleeved tee.
For the rest of the six pack, I stuck with the general theory of a “core of four” in grey, but I chose a seersucker skirt, rather than solid grey. Why aren’t there more things available in seersucker???
All of the jewelry in this little vignette has an starry aspect – the necklace (this one is Libra) is available for each astrological sign. The pattern is the actual constellation of stars for this sign – pretty clever!
This is everything you’ll have with you on your trip – not a lot, but a lot of possibilities.

i can't wait to take a trip and challenge myself and use your inspiration to pack my case!
I agree about cotton seersucker. Even sewists have trouble finding the fabric. It is a great summer fabric, resists wrinkles and is very cool to wear. Men used to have seersucker suits.

I'm on a constant seersucker quest. When I was a child, virtually all my summer clothes and nightgowns were made of seersucker–but, for some reason, though summers in the South still cry out for it, it's practically disappeared. My husband finds seersucker suits at Joseph Banks sometimes–but I haven't seen a seersucker dress in this millennium.
Very soft and pretty combos here, Janice. Thank you!
