What I wore, Illustrated

Well since it's been a looong time since I last did one of these, I thought I'd do one tonight. And also Catherine from Simple Country Girl  (whom I'm doing a swap with but more on that later), said the drawings were nice so I gathered my things and started painting. I actually drew these in January but I only painted them tonight. For the first outfit post I think I'd gone for hot chocolate with my friends in Starbucks for a catch up. I was wearing a rust coloured cardigan from Primark, as well as the brown brogues and leggings, whilst the coral dress and headband are from H&M and the necklace was a little camera I got for Christmas off my friend. I tried my best to capture the colours, but I have a very basic watercolour set, but anyways I love peach and rust together, I think that colour combo is gorgeous. Or even peach/pink with rust as I'm wearing lots of now. The first pen I used was very thick to outline, and I hunted around the house for my favourite type of pens for the next, and only found one, which has almost run out. I need to buy more.

For the second outfit, I wore this a lot during Jan/Feb as I was in love with the top and I felt a bit French wearing it too. I got the stripy top from Matalan and the stripes are meant to be white, and have a lacy collar. I also wore brooches from Matalan too (I think) which were a deer and a bird for £1, bargain! I want to wear brooches more. I also wore black jeggings from Primark, and pale brown buckley brogues from New Look. I've drawn my legs or rather crotch area really short, wasn't my intention and in real life the top is longer, that's why I wore it with jeggings, otherwise I would have worn it with proper jeans! 

Anyway just a quick post with two drawings, I took the photos using Instagram (Oh the love I have for the app is crazy!) and I need to work on a few things to make them better, and sorry for the scary demon eyes in the top one! Oh and p.s one week till my birthday! Yay! :D
