Blue Walls.

Tommy Engstrom

CLICK BAIT!

You thought the title of this article was Blue Balls, didn't you? You're disgusting. Get your mind out of the gutter... I'm kidding. But really though, you're gross.

This past weekend I enjoyed the slowly improving Chicago weather and went out for a walk around the city with my cousin. If you have ever lived in Chicago, or know anyone who has, you will likely know that we LIVE for the summer. Our excuse for everything is, "Oh, but don't worry. The summers in Chicago really make up for it." Let's put this into perspective:

Situation 1: Your wallet gets stolen on the L and the perpetrator spends $5,000 at Walmart. 
A Chicagoans Response: "Oh, but don't worry. The summers in Chicago really make up for it."

Situation 2: The temperature does not break zero for two weeks during January. 
A Chicagoans Response: "Oh, but don't worry. The summers in Chicago really make up for it."

Situation 3: You stub your toe early in the morning while trying to get ready for the day. 
A Chicagoans Response: "Oh, but don't worry. The summers in Chicago really make up for it."

Seems reasonable enough, right? 

Anyways, we stumbled upon this wall of blue and it immediately reminded me of the time I spent in Chef-Chauhan, Morocco. The walls of blue. They are everything. In addition to being obsessed with blue walls, I've developed an insane love to Uniqlo. Their style. Their fabrics choices. I love it all.

Spring Pastels.

April Showers Bring May Flowers

  1. How is it already April? Seriously, I feel like it was just Christmas and we were talking about how crazy it was that 2017 was almost upon us.
  2. Seriously Mother Nature? Rain? I don't want rain today...

It is true, it is a gloomy rainy day here in Chicago, but this past weekend was incredible. Not too cool. Not too warm. Just the right touch of spring in the air. With each new season comes a new wardrobe and look. When I think spring, I immediately think Easter. Bright clothing. Pastels. Light jackets. The gradual introduction of boat shoes. 

I am not quite ready for all of that, but I recently purchased this pink longline t-shirt from Topman and it has me loving the idea of introducing more and more light pastels into my wardrobe. I even got a comment about it this weekend! :) 

Oh, and a good watch. A good watching is always the crowing feature of a good outfit. I am all kinds of obsessed with this new Southview Multifunction watch from Timex.

Hometown Glory.

Tommy Engstrom

Two weeks ago I went to New York City for work. My company had our annual sales conference there during the week and I extended the trip to allow for a little vacation time. We all know how much I love New York City. It has played a huge part in shaping the person that I am today - teaching me how to go through hardships, showing me what I want in life, who I want to be, and who I don't want to be. Without my time in NYC, I wouldn't be able to fully love who I am today.

Just over three years ago, I moved to Chicago. I was hesitant at first, often comparing it to Manhattan. I thought to myself that it would never live up to New York. But as time passes, as I meet more people, make new friends, and begin building a life for myself in this city, I don't think I would want it any other way. Chicago is my home now.

The Riverwalk is one of my favorite parts of the city. I try to go on a walk along the Chicago River at least once a week, allowing myself to walk in quiet, reflecting on where I've been and where I want to go. And of course, reflecting on the insanely comfortable hoodie that I recently got from Pendleton.
