The City's Thumbprint

Phoenix is one of those cities you can always count on for amazing street art. Every few blocks in downtown (or sometimes every block) you can also bet that you're going to find something colorful and unique adorning an old brick wall. About three weeks ago I started to watch this brightly colored, thumbprint design come to life as I drove by each day on my way to get coffee. I loved watching the progression as more colors were added, and the detail started to come alive. As of now, I'm not quite sure of  the meaning behind the art piece (it is painted like a thumbprint, though, with the year 1913 being at the center), but do love how much it brightens up this once dreary, beige wall.

Can I also just mentioned for a second how very rocker chic and Grecian Goddess like I felt in this ensemble. It may have been the almost all black ensemble, but really I think these Greece sandals from Blowfish Shoes really did the trick! They are not only super cute, but also SO comfy and SO easy to walk in. When it comes to tall shoes, I may keep them on for an hour, may two at the most, but with these I kept them on the whole day with no problems! Ladies and gents, I've found my perfect spring/summer sandals!

I'm off for a busy day of errands and emails! The 2013 Arizona Blogger Conference is less than two weeks away, and graduation day is just on the horizon - to say I'm going to have a busy few weeks is an understatement, but I'm SO ready for it! Yesterday I picked out my dress for the bloggers conference (and I plan on wearing it at one of my graduation shindigs as well), and last night the Phoenix Style Collective gals got together to finalize last minute details! We are all SO excited and can't wait to see so many of you there! Have you got your ticket yet? The goody bags are looking amazing and I would hate for anyone to miss out on all of the fun surprises inside of them - so buy your ticket early!

Do you have a lot of street art in your city? Have you found your perfect spring/summer sandal yet?

  1. LOVE that bag! Isn't Downtown Phoenix just amazing?

  2. Those sandals are soooo cute! I would wear those in a heartbeat!

    Living in a huge city like Toronto, there is street art everywhere! Commissioned or not! But I love it all.

  3. Ooh! What a nifty design! And love the sandals - Blowfish is usually my go to for any shoes, but I still need to venture into summer sandal territory. These might be the ones I turn to, since they seem comfy :)
