Pierre-Auguste Renoir was a French painter in the Impressionist movement. Renoir was so dedicated that even when his arthritis caused him to be wheelchair bound he continued to paint. He actually had to strap a paintbrush to his paralyzed fingers so he could continue his work. Two of his paintings have sold for more than $70 million. So obviously he was pretty good at what he did. You can look at more of his paintings if you click on me.
Since it’s starting to get warm in upstate New York, I figured you’d want to get inspired by some spring like paintings and outfit creations. Enjoy! (P.s. if you want to steal any of the clothes just click on the picture and it will direct you to where you can get the pieces!)
The Painter’s Garden
I love the different hues of this painting. The variety of different hues of green and browns really make the image come alive. So I thought that if I were to be put into this painting I would be wearing these awesome edgy flats… they’re Valentino so I wouldn’t actually ever be caught wearing $745 flats because frankly I find them a waste of money… BUT they are very cute I give it that. But this faux leather jacket is to die for an mixing it with these super cute zipper jeans (also extremely expensive) is what I imagine being in this garden would be like.
Vase of Chrysanthemums
I had a million different ideas for this painting but as soon as I found these pants I basically was like that it! Found it! Ding, ding, ding we have a winner. These are amazing pants I would wear them all the time. I fell in love actually. But moving on from my crazy feelings towards these pants… how do you style crazy pants like this? It’s actually pretty simple! You find one color in the pants and try to match it to the best of your ability for your top. Try not to make it too crazy or it will become overwhelming to the eye. The best way to wear loud pants is to find the color that it the least in the pants and wearing it up top. That isn’t the case for this outfit, but I just loved this cardigan so I had to include it. This outfit would be great for working as a teacher or a relaxed meeting. Switch the cardigan with a blazer the same color or even black and you would look perfect for a less relaxed meeting or a business dinner.
The Pear Tree
This painting is very earthy and has a lot of nature tones in it. I really love nature outfits and although this is a very fall type outfit I think that the scarf transforms it into an early spring time outfit because its just a pop of a very bright color. Wear the scarf around your neck or even tie it around your hair.
Portrait of a Woman
How colorful is this outfit? Inspired by the woman’s face I picked this kind of quirky graphic tee to be pared with some loud staple pieces. The skirt, shoes, and purse can easily be statement pieces on their own but when paired all together it creates this kind of very vibrant and fun outfit. I would wear this outfit to class or walking around in a museum.
Villa at Cagnes
This is my favorite outfit because it reminds me of going out to eat with Blair and Serena from Gossip Girl. I’m in love with the different types of colors in the skirt. Even though purple, yellow, and green are in nature all the time together I would never have thought to put them all together. I’m just not a purple and green fan, but I find it working very well in this skirt. I’m also obsessed with different layered necklaces at the moment so I think that this works perfectly for the little details in this outfit.
