Chicago had bean a dream (ha). And mostly because I was staying cozy with all of my friends. Though it was just Rho and I, I brought a few winter necessities from my friends’ clothing brands. One being At The Moment by my friend John, and the other being Happen Clothing by my friend Veej (btw, he just launched his latest brand One of None – SO STOKED!). With the weather being extra cold during our stay in Chicago, you already know I packed my suitcase to the brim with some things to keep me warm. A few of them being the Happen beanie and the other being the At The Moment Windbreaker I got during their Black Friday sale.
Bean There Done That
It was FREEZING cold and I felt like I was going to turn into a popsicle. But with these bad boys, I was a bit better and I could somewhat tolerate it. Plus I felt super cozy knowing that my friends created some great products and I was able to sport them during my travels!
We ended up waking up at the butt crack of dawn to catch The Bean in all of its glory with no one around. Since we were staying just a few blocks away, it seemed like a must for us to do. Though we were extremely exhausted, it was so worth it! There was nothing like experiencing a place that normally heavily populated place with no one around. It was euphoric, beautiful, and nothing like I’ve felt before. So of course we had an impromptu shoot!
Also, can we just take a moment to acknowledge how much Rho killed these photos!? She’s such a talented artist, and I’m so thankful to be surrounded by such great people like her, Veej, and John who are all doing amazing things. Thankful!
