A Swing & A Skirt

It's finally warm enough for outfit photos, and since it's spring break, there's enough time to shoot the outfit photos!

I have been waiting ages to wear this skirt that I bought a little after New Year's. It is definitely my favorite skirt. You can't go wrong with a midi skirt with a mesh insert in scuba.  I've seen the trend of inserting mesh into skirts and dresses, which I absolutely love! It just adds that special something to an otherwise plain skirt. 

Oh, and it is impossible to resist the temptation to twirl! 

What can I say, I like big skirts and I cannot lie ;)

Skirt: ASOS

It spins like a dream!

I really like swings... 

This is the face of the happiness only twirling big skirts can bring.

Gotta thank my dear photographer/bestie <3

*Also, I'm going off to Florida! I will be documenting the trip here, so check back soon! :)

Artist Feature: Villavera

I discovered Villavera when I was browsing around on Etsy. I seriously love the geometric minimalist design of these prints. They're clean and simple, and they each are unique in their patterns, colors, and use of space.

Here are some of my favorites:

A (Taylor) Swift Sketch

I was jamming out to some Taylor Swift, and then this happened... 

I really enjoyed drawing this, especially the red lips and eyeliner! I felt like I was a makeup artist for a bit. I've never drawn a portrait of a person in pen and marker before, but I feel like the clean lines and colors make the facial features stand out better. I don't think I can go back to just pencils anymore! Although trying make dimension (ahem, the nose) is quite the challenge. It kinda reminds me of a comic book drawing.

This weekend we had beautiful weather, so naturally we headed to the park for a walk. The seagulls also seemed to have had a similar idea.

WARNING: These next pictures feature A TON of birds.

Naturally a kid decided to stand in my shots...but I guess he adds some artsy-ness.

"What is the greater meaning of all this?"

It was super loud because of all the squawking, but at the same time it was really amazing to see so many of these birds all in one place. Not gonna lie, I had some major flashbacks to Finding Nemo.

Travel: Throwback to Chicago

I do love me some winter, but I'm really missing warmer weather. It's insane how many days school has closed because of wintery conditions (not that I'm complaining). I was looking through some old pictures and I came across these pictures we took from our summer road trip to Chicago a few years ago. Chicago is probably completely covered in snow and ice right now, but here are some pictures of it in the summer. Hopefully this will give you a little reprieve from the winter weather.

It seems you can't have a big city without pigeons
