Doodle Week: Day 1

 Cloche - Target
Sweater - Express, shortened
Skirt - Victoria's Secret, thrifted
Boots - Miz Mooz, endless

It's Doodle Week! In honor of my 300th post, my Christmas giveaway and pre-week planning before my last final, I'm doing a week of doodles.

My Fashion Doodles are "doodles" because I don't spend more than 30 minutes on them, nor worry about making them "perfect". They've gotten more 'finished' since I've switched to using a digital medium, but I still consider them doodles because I draw  doodle them while watching tv, listening to music or otherwise multi-tasking.

It started purely as a way to 'try on' outfits without actually putting on the pieces. It allowed me to think and create. The outfits don't always pan out as nicely as the drawings do, but it gives me a great starting point when I'm feeling 'stuck'.

This outfit was completely planned around the skirt. I found this on my last thrifting trip. It was a whole 4 dollars, but I wasn't sure where this skirt would 'go' with much I owned. It's one of those "not-colors". I've decided to pretend it's a dark taupe since it's neither black nor brown nor grey. So, of course, I paired it with all three, proved myself wrong and am very excited to remix this skirt.

I also wanted to give a shout-out of Thanks!! to Sal of Already Pretty for including my thrifting tips post in her link line-up.


  1. Love the doodle, love the outfit! You look adorable in that cloche hat.

    I really like colours like that skirt because they can go with so many other colours - it's like they're the ultimate neutral!

  2. I love that hat! Very cool! And a really fabulous outfit too! The skirt is just fantastic, I think the "not-color" works great here! Great doodle too, its always so neat to see them side by side with your outfits! :)

  3. Very pulled together, I love it! I wish I could draw... I bought my fiancé a pen and tablet for Christmas, so my hope is that I'll somehow be better at the digital than the pen and paper!

  4. Um, I absolutely love everything about this outfit! Those tights..those boots..that hat! And you look so amazing in red, looks so great with your complexion!

    And the non-colored skirt is a great find - I imagine you'll be able to pair it with so many things!

  5. Love your outfit! Love! And the doodle. I can't believe you whip that out in 30 minutes!

  6. My kinda you in a look darling!!!
