What I Wore (In Drawings) And How I Wear It Now.

I thought it would be fun to take and older What I Wore drawing, and update it to how I wear it now. Because, believe it or not, I still own many of the pieces I drew years ago. (They weren’t favorites then for no reason.)

So above is the updated version of the illustration for the April page on my birthday calendar. I replaced the stripes with an all black top (I’m over my stripey faze) and switched to a more practical backpack. I own many nice bags, but I almost never use them anymore because my backpack is just so much more comfortable and practical. I still love the denim skirt and my Converse All Stars.

April Favourites, Illustrated.

2021 04 April favorite things Mangomini

Things I Enjoyed Most In April, In Drawings.

Since it’s already the last day of April, it’s a good time for a look at some of my favorite things this month, in illustrated form of course.  I did a lot of hiking & picnicking, had a sunny kayak adventure and added lots of new little plants to my growing collection. This whole outfit is from Monki. The pants took such a long time to draw, but I do love them so it had to be done 😉 I also love that the t-shirt and tote bag are made from organic cotton and the packaging was completely plastic-free.  

Other things that I still loved this month, but already included in my March favorites, are Ben Howard’s new album and live stream concert and cold water swimming.

Embracing Neutrals

2019 neutrals Mangomini

I’m not much of a trend follower but I am totally embracing the neutral colour trend at the moment (yes, leopard print is a neutral!) Any trend that makes beige seem fresh and not boring is impressive, if you ask me ;)⁣
I’m also still reading ánd working on my own little Happiness Project and my 19 goals for 2019, yay!⁣
