Fall is in the air in NYC… it was so cool last week you could feel the seasons changing! That’s not to say we won’t have a few warm days next week but it’s enough to get me excited about dressing for fall.
Happy September! I hope you’re spending this beautiful labor day not laboring! =) I’ve been in my little corner studio with the lovely sun shining though my window sketching away… I’m so grateful to have the day off and am able to relax and spend some time drawing.
I’ve also been catching up with some of my favorite blogs on my Bloglovin feed and came across this look by Wendy of Wendy’s Lookbook. She is always pulled together, not to mention she’s absolutely gorgeous (and could probably never not look amazing), but she is especially good at those transitional looks. And I will definitely be looking to her for fall outfit inspiration (and pining after that Celine bag)!
Fall fashion week is right around the corner which means infinite sketching possibilities will be exploding on my instagram feed… there’s such an energy in New York during that week and the shows are great to watch (even if it is only on your computer screen!) Stay tuned for more sketches and happy fashion month!
Since I’m slowly starting to get back into the swing of things, I’ve been looking to my favorite blogs for inspiration. I’ve been following Jessica of Bows & Sequins for probably over a year now. She has a great sense of style and exudes excitement for fashion and girly-girl fun through her blog. Plus, she’s super hilarious and types how she thinks which makes me literally laugh out loud.
A blogger inspired post was just the thing to get me back into my little window studio. (Will share pics later of my new space once it’s completely set up!) I love a great fashion find for a bargain and Jessica narrates the story of her super steal on this beautiful Valentino dress. Be sure to head on over to her blog and read this post. Thanks, Jessica for being an inspiration!
I came across Sally and Molly’s blog, A Piece of Toast, a couple of weeks ago and have been hooked ever since. The two sisters offer fashion and beauty ideas along with cool new things to check out (like this amazing sticker art!)
Besides being gorgeous with enviable golden locks, it was so motivating to learn they are both able to keep up with their blog while working full time. Thanks Sally and Molly for being an inspiration!
Happy Monday! Here’s a blogger inspired post to start your week. I absolutely adore Mara’s blog M Loves M (I’ve featured her before!) and when I came across these beautiful anniversary photos, I just had to sketch her and her hubby, Matthew. Confession: this is my first time drawing a guy for the blog! Usually I stick to drawing girly things like makeup and shoes but it was a nice change and good practice…
Happy anniversary Mara and Matthew, and thanks for being an inspiration!
