Stay Cool! (And Calm)

My Favorite Heatwave Outfit And Essentials

I’m melting here in my workspace. I accidentally broke my ventilator and it’s sooooo hot! One more hour and then I’m off to enjoy the evening sun. Stay cool and hydrated (and calm) out there! 🍋🍋🍋

This is a drawing of my favorite heatwave outfit and essentials to keep me cool. If you like this you can follow me on Instagram and Pinterest for regular updates or shop my illustrated postcards and other papergoods on Etsy.high

February, So Far, Illustrated.

My February Favorites, In Drawings.

Illustrated recap of my February so far. As you can see from this drawing, I have spring, and spring fashion & colors on my mind. In reality I’m mostly sticking to my trusty work uniform of blue jeans and black sweaters. I’m also becoming more and more of a plant lady and am currently trying to make sooooo many plant babies. (Let’s hope some of them survive!) In between illustration jobs I’m working on several home improvement projects. Stripping off old wallpaper and painting walls, to name just a few.

Vintage Fashion Lover

Vintage Fashion Lover And Drawer.

Want to buy less fast fashion, but still love to shop? Buy vintage! I love going to second hand shops because you never know what treasures you might find. It’s also good for the environment ánd for your wallet, so what’s not to love?

(Almost) all items on this illustration were thrifted by me, except for the lipstick of course😉 I´m always looking for vintage Levi´s jeans, use my vintage Dr.Martens boots for hiking and the extra large bag is perfect for French picnic vibes, oui oui!

PS. I still have 20% off on EVERYTHING in my ETSY shop until February 4th.

Personal Style December

This will probably be my last what I wore illustration of 2019. I haven’t made that many of these this year, because I just haven’t been buying a lot of clothes. One of my goals at the start of the year was “Less stuff, more adventures” and I really have gotten rid of so much stuff already ánd bought very little new stuff. All the items in this drawing were bought before 2019, except for the skirt (and the food of course!) As for the “more adventure”part: I did travel quite a bit this year and tried some new things. I will continue to keep this goal going into 2020, with even less (unnecessary) stuff and even more adventures!

Bye bye November!

Bye bye November 2019! I will not miss you (although you had your moments). I’m happy and excited to start a new month in my new and improved workspace.

PS. I also still have my big SALE on Etsy until December 3th.

 

 

Autumn Mood

It’s starting to feel like autumn. I always love dressing for a new season but I do hope for some more summery days! (And I’m trying really hard not to get sick.)⁠

Expectations vs Reality: French Holiday Style.

French Holiday Style And Adventures! In Drawings, Of Course.

Above an illustrated recap of my recent trip to Northern France. Below you can see the (very stylish and sunny) picture I had in my mind before going. Here now, is the more realistic “after” version. The weather was pretty bad (no bikini needed) and the trip certainly had some challenges (including being stranded hours away from our apartment at night, and no taxi willing to pick us up) but the bread, wine and cheeses were so delicious it made up for a lot and almost made us forget about the rain!⁠

Expectations:

Above you can see how I envisioned my French Holiday style. In reality no bikini or aftersun was needed. Raincoat instead.

More Expectations:

We hand planned to be in the water a lot and to try Stand Up Paddling.  In reality: zero time spend in the sea because of the bad weather.
