Fall Fashionista



Hello again! it’s wednesday and another beautiful day here in good old Kansas, but alas I am stuck in class almost all day…super ugh, but hopefully me and my munchkin can find some time for the park when I’m done!

 I finished this illustration about 2 days ago and am loving her little cape and the talltalltall lavender socks!! on a side note, I had so much fun doing this illustration.. I am so used to only illustrating things I am considering making, that I forgot how good it feels to just let go and not worry about what my sewing skill level is or how is that actually going to work? with this illustration I think I finally was able to just have fun with it and draw an outfit on a whim! and it turned out just how I imagined if not better! 

ps: my doggy baby lilly is getting spayed tomorrow morning! I hope everything goes smoothly… wish us luck!

What do you think of the cape, would you wear it??

Sweaters and denim and scarves, Oh my!

Ok, so it’s monday and most of us are unfortunately back to the usual grind of things…. for me that means school, school and more school! On a happier note, I have finished my first of what I am dubbing my fall into shopping series (clever, I know).

Anways, what you see above is the first illustration I have finished based around that concept board I posted over the weekend.

I hope these fall colors and lovely shopping bags brighten your day and get you excited for this new season!!

Do you have a must have fall staple? I would love to hear about it if you do!!

Inspiration Vacation

WELCOME!!!  This is a new thing I have decided to start doing on a weekly basis… I call it  Inspiration Vacation!! Basically every week on the weekend (which is kind of a mini vacation) I will post some sort of concept or inspiration board (such as the one above), this board will usually have something to do with the next weeks illustration posts! these “boards” could range from an amazing illustration to a clothing style or even simply a chair with a crazy pattern that I am loving for that week!

As you can tell from above, I am really thinking about fall…alot, as in it’s pretty much all I can think about. Here is a look into my days thoughts– sweaters, hoodies, boots, pumpkin patch, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake, fall leaves, the smell of a toasty fire, and more pumpkins. To sum it all up, I LOVE FALL! yep.  So this week you will see a few illustrations that make me think of fall, and hopefully the collection of stuff above gets you a little excited about that!

Whats your favorite thing about fall?
