Cloud Gate, aka The Bean, is located in the heart of Millennium Park which sits between The Loop and the lake. In the summer it’s crawling with tourist and it’s very photogenic.
I also chose this photograph because it goes with my current aesthetic: gray, black, white, and silver. I don’t know I’ll be able to get my own photo at The Bean but I’ll see what I can do.
You don’t need to take a photo at The Bean to participate in this week’s Style Imitating Art challenge, though! Just snap a photo of your outfit (selfies and flat-lays are fine) and email it to me at email@example.com before 9PM Central Time on Tuesday, February 20th. I’ll include it in the round-up on Wednesday the 21st.
Hey everyone! Guess what?? I finally took a photo of an outfit. With the lack of daylight, being so busy, and just not wanting to put on real clothes on the weekends, it’s been awhile. But, I couldn’t pass up participating in this week’s Style Imitating Art challenge. Why? Because it features dogs!
This painting makes me think of a library in a lodge, with a roaring fire and lots of dark wood. And what better thing to wear to such a place than something with a buffalo check print? For Christmas my friend Annabelle gifted me a wonderful buffalo check sweatshirt from L.L. Bean so of course I chose to wear that.
I paired it with my PAIGE jeans and a pair of socks that I borrowed/stole from Annabelle. Her mom made them and they’re amazing!
Our couch is a sage green color with tan trim which reminded me of the furniture in the painting, hence using it as my backdrop. But, I know what you’re all wondering: where’s Chewie?
Here he is! I mean, what would a post about a painting featuring dogs be without featuring an actual dog.
