#SeeSummerBetter in Chicago

 What makes summer in Chicago so great! Sunglasses by Warby Parker

Recently I discovered the Ed Paschke Art Center in Jefferson Park and right outside the gallery there is a mural of one of his paintings and a sculpture created by the Zhou Brothers.

I was so inspired by this combination of art that I decided to create a design and have my wonderful friend Soren better known as @spritesoren on Instagram model for me.

She is famous for posing in front of different types of artwork and cool scenery.

“Life is very much about rule breaking, about confrontation. Otherwise history would just stand still. Someone has to come along and break the rules and try, for whatever reason, to go about things in a different way. Even if it is a simple sense of adventure, a sense of exploration. You explore concepts and things that interest you, but you are also exploring inside yourself” ~Ed Paschke

Soren is wearing the  June Sunglasses in Moonstone

Another great part about Chicago is walking around and seeing some cool artwork on the street and taking a break to eat a Chicago Style hot dog  😀

Lastly it wouldn’t be summer without taking a trip to the beach and enjoying The City by The Lake

Inspired by Katy Perry’s beach ball costume at the Superbowl halftime performance I designed a His and Hers version.
