Wishing for Fall…

fall-wishlist-joanna-bakerNew York Fashion Week kicks off tomorrow and although fall clothes and sales are everywhere, New York is definitely still in a summer state of mind! It may be ninety degrees outside but that’s not stopping my day dreams of oversized coats, cozy scarves and the cutest red booties for the season. This tee adds the perfect touch of metallic and I’m in desperate need of some new Hunter wellies!

I’m excited to be able to attend a few events for fashion week while I work through commissions and keep up on the latest fabulous things strutting down the runways. Be sure to follow me on Instagram for of-the-moment sketches as they happen =) I’ll be busy, busy, busy! On your mark…. get set…. sketch!!

Instagram Update…

I’m still here, I promise! This past month and the one ahead are all about prepping for the big day… every weekend from here on out is packed with to-do’s and celebrations! Exciting, but tiring and I’m afraid my poor blog has taken the brunt of the neglect =/ I wanted to keep you all in the loop with an instagram recap… thank you so much for checking back in and hang in there, I hope to be drawing again soon!!

The past three weeks in review…

From left to right, top to bottom:
1. Central park during our engagement shoot
2. Tea pot cake at my bridal shower
3. “Just Married” and “I Dodish towels from Mom
4. Gorgeous flowers from the shower
5. Vintage photos of my Grandmother, the top two are from her wedding day
6. Bachelorette girls weekend with my BFF of 23 years included Ladurée (of course!)
7. A trip to Bergdorf’s was also a must
8. The ING marathon front runners just steps from our apartment
9. Tea cups… just received my first two and have started my own collection!

These sweet treats from the bridal shower were amazing… the hostess and dear family friend, Sue outdid herself! Marie Antoinette would have been jealous!! =)

Have a great week, I hope to be back here soon!

Wedding Countdown…

I’m sorry you haven’t seen much of me the past week and a half… with less than two months to go until the wedding, my weekends have been full of planning! I did get a chance though to go out and stop by the BHLDN pop up shop at Anthropologie last week and look at all the pretty things.

I tried on this maribou feathered bolero but alas I looked like a football player… way too poofy at the shoulders. So my search for the perfect winter wedding coverup continues. But that didn’t stop me from pining after these lovelies. Here’s hoping the last two months go just according to plan =)

Wednesday Wishlist…

Lately I’ve had a thing for zebras. They seem to be popping up all over the place… on dresses and pillows and scarves. I’m thinking I need some zebras in my life…

Hope you had a happy Wednesday… hang in there, we’re that much closer to Friday =)
