an illustration

i'm currently typing this post on a sunday night and im planning to publish it when i suddenly run out of things to blog about. i think that having this full time job will lessen my time here so i hope you don't mind me having these scheduled posts every now and then..

this outfit was thrown on a whim. the main point of this outfit was to feel comfortable and im telling you nothing feels softer than this striped tee that i got from jasmine through our clothes swap months ago. (which btw, jasmine, i got your package today! thanks!)

outfit: striped tee c/o clothes swap, divi skirt, nyds bow pin, joe fresh belt, shoebox flats

i was trying to figure out how to accessorize this look so i dug into my cabinet and saw this bow pin from nyds. i just attached it to a plain black headband and tadah, i got a bow headband to add that extra cute factor into my outfit.

oh btw, if you're wondering why that's my title for this post.. well that's because val of quiet girl messaged me a few days ago and told me that she made a painting of me in one of my outfit posts. i was so flattered since it's always been a dream of mine to be drawn or painted by anyone.

ok, so maybe she edited my hair and added that purse, but don't you think she really made me look even better in that painting. in case you're wondering, she based this illustration from this outfit photo.

wonderful, isn't it? this girl always makes me wish i had the same artistic inclination as her.

  18. That's such a great illustration of you Sybil!:)

    And this outfit is equally adorable! Wear it out as much as you can before the temperature drops, though I think you can still wear the same ensemble with tights and cardigan ;) Can you wear this to work?
