twist & tate

On a recent trip to London, I had the opportunity to visit the Tate Modern. The building is striking — a brick-and-concrete giant rising confidently, twisting and turning, the inside filled with light and space. I meditated on Mark Rothko’s Seagram Murals, listened to someone sing (opera-style) “this is propaganda; you know, you know,” and admired school children’s attempts at replicating Bridget Riley’s captivating optical illusions. I left feeling inspired, grateful that there are spaces such as the Tate that are dedicated to bringing art to everyday people.

Something about going to a modern and contemporary art museum put me in the mood for a more graphic, monochrome outfit. The billowy silhouette and dramatic tie-waist finish of this Twist x Turn blouse at Topshop caught my eye. I wore it with simple black pants, sneakers (much needed for all the walking), and topped the look off with lightning-bolt-inspired earrings.
