Graffiti Stripes

by Shae

Wearing: Bailey 44 Striped Backless Top NOW AVAILABLE, Joes Flares as seen here, Steve Madden Platforms (now on sale!), Leopard Skinny Belt, Michael Kors Watch as seen here and here, Chan Luu Wrap Bracelet, Red Nomad Fluxus Scarf, Marc Jacobs Sunglasses (similar to these) as seen here, CC Skye Ring as seen here, here and here (and a million other times).

I am so accustomed to seeing graffiti walls in the city that I usually look past the art and vibrant colors that cover many buildings and fences in Chicago. However, over the weekend, I thought I’d ditch the flowerless corners and desolate streets to shoot an outfit post with some energy. I tracked down a bright wall nearby to stand in front of and check out the murals someone with serious artistic ability constructed. Sometimes it is the things we see every day that can make a simple Sunday so vivid. 

Oh, and PS: Your beauty tip of the week…use a straw when drinking coffee, it will not stain your teeth.
