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 […]
Downtown Portland is fun too. Sometimes I forget because I love exploring the nature that surrounds the city so much. But this place is jam packed with good food and good beer. I ate a food truck almost every day and I wore lots of plaid. Plus, how cute is the little lady in the last photo above. That’s some serious shoe game there. my outfit: gap boyfriend jeans, carhartt shirt & hat, and nike sky hi sneaker wedges

The Kimbell in Fort Worth, Texas is on of my favorite museums. I’m a Michelangelo freak, so that might explain it. A few years ago, The Kimbell acquired The Torment of Saint Anthony. It is supposedly Michelangelo’s first painting. You can see it above– depicting an old guy being attacked by a buncha demons. How cool is that? In college, I would drive to Fort Worth just to see it again and again. It made me feel that much closer to […]

I went to NTC in Lincoln Park to pick up a pair of the green Roshe Run Boots the other day. As you know from my other posts, I’m not afraid of color. So it isn’t that much of a jump to think I see colors a bit differently. To a lot of people, neutrals are considered to be white, black, nudes, and shades in between. To me, great neutrals consist of those typical shades and I tend to throw […]

Visiting Pittsburgh is always an adventure. I finally made my way to Primanti Bros., where the french fries abound. In Pittsburgh, sandwiches come with the fries on the inside. Originally that was to make lunches easier for workers in the Strip District to eat on the go. It stuck around because it’s delicious. I also got to see the Rubber Duck floating in the Allegheny River. What a site to behold! Dutch artist, Florentijn Hofman, dreamed up this 40ft. attraction that travels around to different cities. Until next time, […]

This is my niece, Lily. It’s the funniest thing when you catch babies in very grown up stances or poses. This is the day we taught Lily what pockets are. She liked them at first, but got a little frustrated when she couldn’t pull her hands out of them on her own. If Lily could talk, she’d probably tell you all about the bracelet she’s wearing. and puppies. Puppies! Puppies! Puppies!
