Devil’s Backbone Nature Trail near Loveland, Colorado is quite the sight. The protruding rocks poking their jagged edges along the hillside tell an old story that only geology is able to share. It doesn’t look too shabby dressed in fall, does it?!
Five years ago today, I started this blog. I was new to Chicago and looking for a way to vent my creative side. This new place was a whirlwind to me as a small town Texan. I was 23 and my friends called me baby Jenny, mostly due to my naïveté as a doe eyed girl in the windy city, donning sneakers, skirts, and too many patterns. It’s funny to look back at my posts from then till now. A […]
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.
Welcome to New York, my friends! I just made my yearly trip to the bustling city of Manhattan. It never gets old because you can never run out of art to see and miles to walk. After exploring Chelsea Market, I visited the High Line for the first time. That’s the linear park built on an abandoned elevated railroad. It was really cool to see a space so thoughtfully repurposed and turned into a haven for nature amidst the sea of […]
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!!!!!)
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).
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:
