Blogger Sketch Sunday [Going West]

Hey bloggers! Its the Forty-fifth edition of Blogger Sketch Sunday! This week's post features Jennie of Going West whose blog is located in San Francisco, California.

3 Reasons I love this blog:

-For someone who moved to California from Iowa, she's got that California style down pat. This blogger always opts for a look that balances rock'n roll with laid back hippie-chic. Its all about leather jackets and frayed cut-offs with tribal print bags and chunky turquoise jewelry. She stomps around SF in chunky leather boots or platform Sam Edelmans and just owns the place.
-That said, Jennie also knows how to polish up. Its not all rough and tumble. She pairs a clean white blazer with a cut up vintage T-shirt. Perfectly tailored trousers with strappy rockstar heels. A sparkly sequined tank with a ragamuffin oversized cardigan. Opposites always give an outfit extra interest.
-Whoever this Lydia Hudgens is takes beautiful photographs. The pictures on Jennie's blog are always amazing. More than just the stand-there-in-front-of-a-non-discript-wall photos, there are a few special shots such as Jennie through the glass of a window or on a ragged beach with the sun perfectly hitting her.

If you haven't come across her blog, you should stop by and check it out. The link is located where I first named her blog above.

Thanks for checking in on another Blogger Sketch Sunday! Can you believe I only have 7 editions left until I finish a whole year? Not to fret though, I plan to start some more serious fashion illustration after the completion of this year long weekly tradition.
