I’m obviously obsessed with Nikes. Well you can go right ahead and add patterns to my list of obsessions.
The more patterns in an outfit, the better. Be it on your shirt, your socks, your shoes, heck– even your underwear!
This past weekend, I wandered around the beautifully hectic New York City and snapped tons of patterned photos.
So there you have it, patterns in the Big Apple and patterns on my big apple!
Scaffolding on The Plaza, Ninja Turtles, row after row of tulips, polka dots, and fish on a wall.
ohh baby, baby– it’s a patterned world!
My favorite part of Detroit is all of the colors– it’s the home of street art.
Each building has a million stories to tell and there are a million different ways to interpret them.
I thought I’d wear some art on one of my Carhartt jean jackets much like the buildings wearing art in Detroit.
See how you can make these fabric applique flowers yourself HERE.
What was intended to be a cross-country ski trip turned into a snowshoeing experience.
Turns out, when you’re as clumsy as I am, wearing shoes that make your feet bigger isn’t a good game plan.
It was a fun trip full of wine, pie, and snow. When winter feels like it just won’t go away, you might as well embrace it.
I’ve been in Portland for 9 days now, and I haven’t even scratched the surface of all that is this great city.
As you may well know, Nike headquarters is right outside of Portland in Beaverton.
I was lucky enough to get my hands on a pass to the employee store…and I went a little nuts.
I’ll be traveling home with 4 new pairs of sneaks and a few other goodies.
Portland is a stellar city. Go there if you get a chance.
Drink some great beer, eat some tasty food, and be sure to bring a good rain jacket.
I spent a week in Seattle and here are a few of the interesting things I spotted in the rainy city.
How absurd is it that you have to pay $$ to check your bag at the airport?
If you’re like me, you want to save money and avoid the hassle of checking a huge bag.
I travel a lot for work, so I’ve had some time to finesse the skill of packing light.
As you’ve probably already noticed, I’m a shoe girl. And I can be a bit absurd.
I like to wear a different pair of sneakers everyday when I travel, but that’s just not practical.
A trick I just figured out is switching out my shoelaces to alter the shoe and give your outfits a bit more pop and diversity from day to day.
Instead of bringing a few different pairs of sneakers, I only take one pair and bring along extra ribbons to switch out.
The photos above are from a trip I recently made to Salt Lake City.
You have to try this out the next time you travel– it’s a real space-saver.
I was recently in Texas having some great adventures.
Here are a few snap shots of beautiful landscapes, delicious food, and some sneaker love.
I want to do my best to make you guys fall in love with the sneaker wedge if you haven’t already.
In the photos above I’m doing a little sight seeing on Mount Washington in Pittsburgh, PA. It’s be best view in the city!
There is so much contrast in architectural styles from one building to the next, you could stand there all day and not get tired of it.
I’m wearing a dress from Banana Republic, a necklace and headband from Target, and of course my Nike dunk sky hi’s.
I recently spent a week in Rehoboth for vacation.
It was a quaint little town, that I believe to be the capital of the font papyrus.
Every little candy shop, bike rental place, and restaurant used it on their signage.
It was such a sweet little beachfront that it wasn’t too hard to over look that.
If we weren’t roasting ourselves in the sand, I was hitting up the arcade.
I’m obsessed with those basketball shooting games.
I think I might have accidentally spend about $30 just on tokens for it.
While we were there, I lived in my Victoria’s Secret cut off shorts,
a BDG tank from Urban, and a pair of my favorite Nike flip flops.
On our last night in town, we ate dinner at Dogfish Head Brewery.
Not only were the beers great, the food was really good too.
I’m an even bigger Dogfish Head fan that I was before.
Here are a few of my favorite photos from my trip to Boston.
Of course I wore my Nikes around the city, saw lots of art, and ate a lot of sea food.
