WIW 4/30: Inspired by nature style challenge day 1--elephants

I also posted this on Bella's thread, but am reposting this to save to my YLF blog.

Here's my interpretation of Bella's Inspired by Nature style challenge:

The Day 1 picture is of African elephants at twilight, Chobe National Park, Botswana.

I chose the rose and plum plaid H&M skirt to match the colors in the photo. Grey H&M textured cardigan and grey croc Kate Spade tote to match the texture and color of the elephants' skin. Pearl earrings and pendant to match the moon. Anthro leaf belt and wood textured bangle to represent the trees. The stacked wooden heel of the pumps also looks like a tree trunk. And like Manidipa, wet hair to represent the water! :)

    Fabulous job with the colours and textures! So imaginative!

    Absolutely stunning Natalie! You've nailed the colours and you have tons of visual interest with textures.

    Fantastic rendition, Natalie! Such a lovely outfit even taken out of the artsy frame.

    LOVE your 'trees'. And such fun that so many of us made moons of our pearls!

    (By the way, quite coveting your skirt and cardi. Both are beautiful, and as with so many of your wardrobe ingredients, leave me staring a little in awe and happiness.)

    Nicely done! I like the colors you choose and all the texture detail (which I think of as your "trademark").

    Beautiful & so much thought has gone into an outfit that looks effortless & chic.

  • CocoLion replied 7 years ago

    Oh, I just love how you have used different accessories to reflect the textures of nature! I immediately "got" the bag, and belt, the shoes ... and the skirt does have the same colors as the overall photo doesn't it? Well done Natalie!

    (LOL wet hair...)

    You are so on this one, Natalie! Every color is represented, and the nature elements as well. Great outfit!

    Great outfit! I'm really enjoying seeing everyone's interpretation of the photo. I especially like your leaf belt to pick up the tree element.

    Gorgeous! Love you in that skirt.
