Instagram really is a magical place; it brings together people from all over the world who post inspirational and beautiful photos. Through this wonderful (and my most favorite) social media site, I had the pleasure to become acquinted with blogger extraordinaire Caroline of Rainboots and Retail, which has 10,000+ unique views each month along with 12K+ Instagram followers...so you could say her blog has taken off!
Caroline, a junior at the University of Alabama, started as a business major and absolutely hated it. Sophmore year she changed her major to fashion retail and never looked back. It was then that she started her own blog, which features everything from fashion to yummy recipes. Caroline is a girl after my heart...sweet, southern, and an animal lover. Point in case, she has two furry children...Odie, a big lovable lab and Champ, a shitzu/teacup poodle mix that she actually found on Craigslist.
A couple weeks ago Caroline contacted me about a custom illustration for her blog; I gladly accepted! I knew her fun personality would be easy to capture with paint and pen. I also did a cute little print of her pooch Champ, some Hunter rainboots and of course a shopping bag. If you weren't following Caroline's blog Rainboots and Retail, you certainly should now. Who doesn't love a fashionable southern belle?
