Yesterday I received a special package in the mail! I love receiving things in the mail! I got three posters of Van Gogh that I have always loved. For some reason, the Starry Night series of paintings by Van Gogh really inspire me, so I have always liked them. I'm so happy to now have them on my walls! Here are the ones I ordered, do you recognize any of them?

I love the paintings so much that I tried to do a paint by number of Van Gogh a couple of months ago... it doesn't look exactly like Van Gogh's (he is an artist after all), but I'm still very pleased with how it turned out!

To celebrate this special package in the mail, I decided to make an outfit around the colors in my favorite Van Gogh painting: Starry Night. This painting is mostly different shades of blue with a couple of bright yellow stars. So I tried to copy the look by wearing two different shades of blue and add a pop of yellow with the purse to represent the stars... Yai! I'm a walking painting! jajaja just kidding :)
