It’s often said that black and white photography creates a sense of timelessness. I love to take a photo full of people and indicators, turn it black and white, and watch as it transforms into a completely different piece of art. Most of the time I even consider making this alteration to a picture, it’s one I’ve taken in Chicago. I’m not sure why that is–perhaps it’s because I live here and I want to see my home differently. Take […]
I wish I could eat the most important meal of the day in the heavens every morning. The Skydeck at Willis Tower lets you have your breakfast in the sky. Crazy, huh? There you are, alone and hanging off a glass edge, 103 floors up as you enjoy a buttered biscuit. It might have been in the middle of a snowstorm, but it was beautiful nonetheless. You can see straight down to the tiny speck people, barreling through the snow. Gotta love Chicago!
Well it’s fall y’all, or as I like to call it–the season for idiots to walk around dirty cities in a pair of white pants. I’m wearing some Pilcro flares and my new favorite top. I’d like to think it’s modeled after the ewoks’ hoodies. From Pittsburgh to Chicago, I’ll be the idiot breaking the no-white-after-labor-day-rule with an appropriately named beer in hand.
I have thus declared October my adventure month of 2015. I’ll be traveling so much that I want to soak up what little time I have in Chicago. It’s been quite lovely here–I just had to share these shots with you. Now off I go! (p.s. Happy 500th Post from for-the-love-of-nike!!!!!)
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
