WORE IT, DRAW IT 01: WINTER BASICS

Happy Tuesday! Today I felt like doing something a little different. I love outfit posts, and I've always wanted to do something like that for my own blog. However, I would never put up photos of myself wearing pretty outfits - it's just not my thing. So then I thought of putting together outfit collages. But there are so many other people who do that so well. (Have you seen Oh So Pretty's style posts? So beautiful.) And then it dawned on me over the weekend - I have not drawn since I finished college in June. Now, I'm not an illustrator by any stretch of the imagination, but it was really fun to get that drawing muscle working again. These are the four items I am just about living in on my weekends this winter: a blue and white stripe longline shirt, black canvas shoes, black stitched ponte pants, and a navy wool cable knit jumper. They're basics, they're simple and I love them.

  1. AMY!!!!! You are so talented. If you don't open a shop, I will cry. And we wouldn't want that, would we?! Can you draw some pretty frocks, too. I need one for my study :o)

    1. Oh thank you so much Libby! Yes - no photos of me, I would feel like a total goof ball! As soon as I know there's a camera on me, I go really weird and awkward! (Or maybe that's just me naturally?) Oh So Pretty is gorgeous - I could spend days there too x
