I often look to paintings from the 19th century depicting pastoral, peasant, and farm life for outfit inspiration. I love the muted tones, the worn in cloth, and the simple patterns. Most of the ideas I get for my Autumn and Winter wardrobe are borrowed from paintings of shepherd and farm girls by William-Adolphe Bouguereau (French).
The wonderful thing about these looks are they are very easy to recreate and they are forever classics! A long a-line skirt, a simple blouse, a shawl, and (HUZZAH) bare feet!
