Last Tuesday, I turned 28. What better way to celebrate than to surround yourself in art–and what better place to do that than The MCA in Chicago? And what better to wear than a killer T-Shirt? Take a look at this Shape Shifter Tee by Curated Cotton. It’s incredibly soft and comfy and created by a couple of kick ass girls. They have several different designs and each one is screen printed by hand (see the process here).
The photos below are from The Chicago Air and Water Show. Very few cities can rival this city in the summertime. See what I mean?! what I wore: Taget sundress, Victoria’s Secret swimsuit, Ann Taylor sunglasses, & my favorite Nike flip flops
You know how using a 35mm camera is a beautiful almost-lost art form these days? After sailing around Lake Michigan last Friday, it made me think that sailing is the 35mm of boat rides. Sailing, in its most primitive form, has been around since around 5000 BCE. It provided a wealth of food and closed large distances in a earth shrinking way. Now, it mainly serves as pastime. It’s so interesting how once revolutionary technologies transition into a cool hobby. I’ll […]
I have to admit, that navigating through the whole wedding game, I’ve felt very out of place. I’m a corny person by nature, but so much of the expected behavior felt beyond corny to me. My fiancé and I did our best to pick and choose what things made sense for us, and what we wanted to avoid. We definitely wanted to make sure that family and friends played key roles in the process. So obviously, the folks in our wedding party were […]
Well folks, the time has finally arrived! I’m getting married tomorrow morning! And you guessed it– I’m wearing a great pair o’ kicks! Weddings are so much work (it’s pretty silly) but I can’t wait to get my party on. Stay tuned and I’ll fill ya in on all the Nike details. I have my wedding crafts packed up and ready to entertain the crowd. Here we go!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pitchfork weekend has come and gone. It was fun. It was a blur. It was very muddy. From Future Islands to Run the Jewels, I was in heaven. Sleater Kinny, Caribou, & New Pornographers weren’t too shabby either. Future Islands is one of my favorite bands at the moment. If you haven’t heard of them, you have to check them out. Here’s a great song: Seasons (just listen, don’t watch the video– it’s insanely cornball and nothing like them). The front man, Samuel […]
Now, I do see the irony in spending July 4th with The Rolling Stones. But I’ll tell you, it was a blast. The seasoned English performers even put on a firework display. All of the band member where wearing sneakers, but I’d love to point out that Keith Richards was wearing Nikes. How kick ass is that?! See the photo below: All I can say is that I hope to be as awesome as that when I’m in my 70s! The show […]
There’s no party like a girl-party in the windy city. With one month till the big day, I can mark the bachelorette weekend off my list. We had a blast with great friends, lots of art, drinks, and good food. Here’s a list of what we did, in case any of your guys are planning a trip to Chicago: Howells and Hood (with the largest draft beer selection in the city) Shopping on Magnificent Mile Slid down the Picasso statue […]
My order has been shipped! I just got a new pair of floral roshe run sneakers and matching tights for my honeymoon. I CANNOT WAIT. Look out Puerta Vallarta, this little sneakerhead is coming your way soon. Let’s get tropical. Take a look for yourself:
Oh, it’s the time of year for beer and peanuts galore! Last night I went to the Pirates vs. Cubs game at Wrigley Field. It was my second baseball outing of the season– both of which have been quite chilly and unfortunately filled with Porta Potties (due to ongoing construction at Wrigley). Sporting events are the time and place sit back, snack, and drink as you people watch– forget the game. There are a bunch of maniacs squished into a single […]
