Retro Rainy Day Outfit, In Drawings.

Hand drawn watercolour illustration by Cindy Mangomini depicting playfully drawn women's fashion items to form an illustrated cold weather outfit.Vintage Vibes Fashion Drawing

My fashion mood today. Yep, it’s back to winter again. It’s cold and rainy and perfect weather to stay inside and work on my illustrations. Do you like the retro/vintage color combination of this fashion look? Wine red (bordeaux) is probably my favorite color to wear (besides black) and also my favorite color to drink at the moment.😉 Enjoy your day!

February Favourites, Illustrated.

What I Wore Most This February, In Drawings

Because it’s #meetthemaker month here is another entry for my hand drawn illustrated fashion diary, where I draw my personal fashion, food and overall favourites.

It was hard to sum up my February favourites in one drawing because we went from freezing cold and snow, to super sunny spring weather, back to freezing cold again the whole month. I’m not complaining because I loved the snow and I definitely enjoyed the first warm days. Kayak season is open! Picnic season as well, although that’s open all year for me. I also did a few more cold water dips in the river, Wim Hof style, and plan to do many more.

For this illustration I chose my “in between weather” favourites: Levi’s ribcage jeans, a cute bohemian shirt and my Ugg boots, that are perfect for quickly getting my feet warm after being in the cold water. Plus one of my favourite vintage bags and my favourite face mask.

I could also have included my mittens, beanie hat, bikini and sandals, because I also wore all of those several times last month. You might see them in a March recap. 😉

As you can tell, despite the lockdown and evening clock, I had a lot of fun in nature. In, on and near the water and picnicking and hiking. I hope March will bring more of the same.

Wishing you a happy & healthy month as well!⁠💚

Hello March 2021! (In Drawings)

March Illustrated Calendar Page

Hello March! A new month, as always, means a new calendar page. This is the illustration from the March page on my 2021 wall calendar. I went for cute and comfy knitwear layers, paired with my favorite blue mom jeans and red Dr. Martens boots. I also added tea, chocolate and plants for extra coziness. And since we’re still in lockdown and we have an evening clock between 21h and 4:30 there’s a lot of time for reading books, creative projects and watching Netflix.

Does this match your plans or mood for the new month? We’ve had such a sunny week that this drawing feels very wintery now, but I know in many places it’s still very cold. ⁠

Sunny February Days, Illustrated.

What I Wore In February, In Drawings.

I was working on several wintery illustrations and then it was suddenly spring! One of the things I love about freelance life is that I can be flexible with my hours. So today, to fully take advantage of the sunny weather, I took half the day off for a long hike and a sunset picnic. I do have to work late now, but since we have an evening clock at the moment, I don’t mind so much.⁠🥖🍷

The illustration above is a recap of my day, as part of my ongoing illustrated fashion diary/what I wore series. When I do these I always like to look back at the same time from the previous year. Here‘s and example from February last year.

Hello February! (In Drawings)

February Style Inspiration, Illustrated.

A new month still means a new calendar page, even though this page will probably stay pretty empty since we’re still in lockdown here. I guess I could start marking what I watched on Netflix on it…🤔

Hopefully by the end of this month things will have changed for the better and I can finally start filling up this calendar. In the meantime I will just make the best of it and enjoy a lot of chilling at home time.💚 Do you have exciting plans for February or are you also still stuck at home?⁠

January Favourites, In Drawings.

My January Favourites, Illustrated Recap.

As you might be able to tell from this illustration, despite the lockdown and an evening clock here in the Netherlands, my January has been pretty OK and much better than my December.

Why? Let’s see:⁠
– Getting my Vitamin D with regular muddy hikes in good company⁠
– New music and an album coming soon from Ben Howard⁠
-‘Conan O’brien needs a friend’ makes me laugh so much every week.⁠
– I did 2 (very) cold water dives in the river and felt SO good afterwards⁠
– A lovely sunny trip to the island of Brrrrr with Andrei⁠
– A lot of chilling at home, cooking, reading, dancing, Netflix, etc with zero FOMO⁠

This time no What I Wore drawing, but What Bernie Wore!

I loved Bernie’s cozy and comfy style yesterday (I have a thing for cute mittens!) and it’s so funny that this outfit is going viral! I actually dress like this most days during winter.. .hmmm 🤔
I did add a hat because I felt it was missing from his look. What did you think of the inauguration yesterday?⁠💙💜
