Have you ever met someone on Instagram and have instantly developed a girl crush on them? I'm definitely guilty of doing that. When I discovered Cassidy of O My Darlings on Insta, I could not stop scrolling through her feed. She is such a girly girl, is the mom to her adorable little girl Rylie, and a contributor for Glitter Guide, which is one of my favorite sources of inspiration.
Cassidy inspired my "I love you more than chocolate" Valentine's Day greeting card. After sharing it with her, the two of us got to chatting and decided that I absolutely had to illustrate the three outfits she was styling for Glitter Guide's Style Sessions - Valentine's Day 3 Ways.
Y'all, I'm quite literally obsessed with how they turned out. How couldn't they be spectacular when they are based on such a stunning lady wearing beautiful outfits? Take a look at the three original outfits and illustrations. PS, Cassidy also wrote a blog post about our collaboration, and you should absolutely take a look to see her perspective on everything!
Which of the three looks is your favorite? My vote is for the glam look with the fuchsia maxi skirt from Bel and Beau, but I cannot help but fall in love with how darling she looks with her little daughter in the boho look. And of course, the classic preppy outfit is always a good idea.
Are you interested in having me create a custom illustration portrait for yourself or a friend too? Well then, you're in luck because I just added a listing for them to my Simply Jessica Marie Etsy shop! They are currently available as digital files, but I also offer original 11x14 watercolor paintings of custom illustrations. And you know I adore a creative challenge, so if there is something unique you are seeking, message me on Etsy and let me know!
