My Outfit in Sketches

It's that little girl inside of me who never got a portrait on any beach vacations that gets excited and prints out every single illustration that now she receives. :) Lauren did a great job with capturing the essence of my outfit and I'm oh so happy with the result! She has a very cool blog called "My Closet in Sketches" where instead of photographs she shows her daily outfits in sketches and blog posts in hand written notes,  oh how I wish I had her gift! Being able to draw like that must be amazing. Step by to say hi if you have a moment. ;) Thanks Lauren (and Happy Birthday)! :D

Lauren did a FABULOUS job with the sketch. I absolutely love it - the words alongside are terrific, too. Now where on earth can I get a pair of those boots? They are perfect!
