The Gateway Arch in St. Louis is the world’s tallest arch. Isn’t that nuts?! They built this sucker in the mid 60s and plopped it right on the edge of the Mississipi River. Back then it cost $13 million to construct. That’s equivalent to $180 million these days. When I finally saw the arch in person, the first thing I thought of was someone trying to climb it or fly through the darn thing. Which has actually happened. Some maniac […]
Milwaukee Art Museum is currently featuring an exhibit of Modern Rebels who were game changers in the world of fine arts. You’re probably familiar with most of them. A short list of the 68 master makers includes Frida, Pollock, Van Gogh, Picasso, Dalí, Miró, & Lichtenstein. It’s so wonderful to walk through works from around 1900 to 1960, and view each piece as a stepping stone in the timeline until now. Strong vibes of surrealism, cubism, Fauvism, and abstraction all staring each […]
I can’t believe Labor Day has come and gone. My grip has yet to loosen on summer 2015. At least I starting saying my goodbyes to my favorite season with friends. We went to Kentucky Lake, drank too much, ate good food, swam a bit, and cruised around. Remember the Tee I sported last week? Take a look at that same shirt styled another way with a few more designs. Check ‘em out here! And don’t forget my favorite flip flops of […]
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 […]
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 […]
