Summer Day at the Sidewalk Chalk Art Fun
Quote of the day: “Life is trying things to see if they work.” Ray Bradbury
Hanging out with friends is really what makes many days so enjoyable, don’t you think? So when our “foodie friends”, David & Eileen asked if we wanted to join them for a trip to the Larimer Square sidewalk chalk art fun, how could we say no?
We had a great time seeing how artistic some people can be with chalk!! You can see one of the photos from the day on my journaling post for June! I had also included a bunch of these masterpieces in my Instagram stories, so you might have already seen those!!
When we found these great murals, I asked Rob to model for another blog post!! I was even lucky enough to get Eileen to join in on the fun!! So today is not just men’s style, but also for the females!
Rob’s Outfit: Since it was a hot day, Rob made sure to wear one of his hats to keep his head covered!
I know many guys don’t wear hats much anymore, but they are quite functional. Especially if there is any thinning on top of the head!! The funny thing is Rob has at least 4 hats that are “his”, yet I tend to wear each of them more than he does.
So that’s a great reason to buy your man a hat!! Then you can “borrow” them anytime you want! There are always the straw versions that are perfect for summer time. Did you know that there are straw ones in black too?? Or there are the safari versions that never go out of style!
The other fun aspect of Rob’s outfit are his yellow shoes!! Rob will wear these shoes most of the time that we are walking a lot. They were a splurge many years ago in NYC, and they are as comfortable as slippers!! Needless to say, he does get an occasional teasing from some of our friends. But since I love the shoes, he’s happy to keep wearing them!
Rob has a couple pairs of linen pants that he wears most of the summer when he’s not wearing shorts! He has some in white and these in brown! When I was searching for a similar item, this pair popped up for such a great deal. And look at all of the colors available!! Don’t be surprised if Rob has another color to choose from in his closet the next time you see him, ha ha!!
And last but not least, let’s talk about Rob’s shirt!! I like this polo shirt because it’s more interesting than many others. The stripes in it make it fun, and then the addition of the solid colored pocket is my kind of detail!
Eileen’s (70+) Outfit: Eileen is one of my stylish friends who is also an incredible chef.
In fact, she used to have her own television program about how to cook on Denver’s public television many, many years ago!!
One of my favorite details about Eileen is that she doesn’t shy away from color!! That’s why I put her in front of the John Lennon mural. Her pink top matched his pink glasses!!
Just in case you were wondering about my outfit, I showed it when we compared a dress in a classic style vs. a modern style. It was a hot one in Denver, this day, so we all tried to keep cool!!
And let me know if you’ve ever been to a sidewalk chalk art festival?? Now that I’ve seen one, I’d love to go to more of them!!
Thanks to you all!
