How were your weekends, friends?! I am so excited to get to introduce you today to such an amazing and talented illustrator, Belinda Chen. Our paths first crossed when I was designing this blog over two years ago. I was in search of someone to create the illustration that you see there to the left and I was so fortunate to find Belinda. She is going to be creating illustrations of our favorite looks and trends as we head into fall and I could not be more excited! The inspiration for today’s illustration? Every day essentials. From a perfect pair of denim to an impeccable tee that has been worn-in just right, these are simple pieces that no closet should be without. The rest of my wardrobe staples? My favorite sunnies, an every-day-non-blazer jacket, a great pair of ankle boots, a stylish leather bag, a dress that fits in all of the right places, and a classic trench coat. What things can you not live without?**Belinda Chen is an illustrator and graphic designer based in New York. Always curious, she loves fashion, art, traveling and going on adventures.
