Hey blogger! Its the Fifty-second edition of Blogger Sketch Sunday! Thats right, I've been doing this for a full 52 weeks totaling 1 full year! This week's post features Kimberly of eat.sleep.wear. whose blog hails from Philadelphia.

3 Reasons I love this blog:

-Kimberly is a graphic designer, whose eye for aesthetics translates clearly into her blog. I always enjoy coming across blogs that are created by very visually inclined people. This blogger has this clean, sleek, bold feel to her website. From the theme of continuous lines running through the titles and bordering her links to the sharpness of her photos in the ordered posts column, there is a simple beauty to all of it.

-I would definitely say that this simplicity also transcends into her style. While her look isn't
minimalistic, it has this juxtaposition of polish and rustic. Kimberly has a uniform of skinny jeans, wedges, layers of tops, and dramatic glasses or hats. She rocks the silhouette that works every time for her, but keeps it interesting by picking basic pieces that have appealing patterns or tactile textures. Her style maintains the clean line her aesthetic keeps to.

-Fall colors are huge in trends right now and I think Kimberly works these colors into her wardrobe effortlessly. Desaturated brown or olive pants, silky sienna tops, mustard cable knit cardigans, maroon wool floppy hats and beige desert boots. All finished off with leopard print accents, tortoise frames, fur vests, and sherpa collars. Completed with a perfect warmly lit city backdrop behind her.

If you haven't come across her blog, I'd recommend going to check it out! I've posted the link to it where I first named her blog above.

I have mixed feelings about reaching the completion of my 52 week goal. On one hand I feel proud to have gone out and achieved something on my own that wasn't a part of school or work. On the other hand I still have a few bloggers I'd like to feature, so you might see a few more editions of Blogger Sketch Sunday coming up! I would like to keep my weekly tradition for a little longer.

When I finish, I plan to post a huge edition with 52 of my favorite sketches from Blogger Sketch Sunday, so look out for it soon!

I also need to announce that I am no longer accepting commissions as of right now. I still have a few I am wrapping up on, but I have decided that I need these next few weeks to focus on finishing up school for my December graduation. If I return to taking freelance work, I will put up a notice here on my blog. Thank you!
