    Love this line up.. I live downtown and love finding unexpected art in the ally ways while walking my pup.

  2. I love that you did this post and showed some respect and recognition to the artists. I see fashion bloggers who use these murals as a backdrop to their fashion stories, but never acknowledge the artist (or even ask who the artist is). I really respect your voice, and actually weaving in culture into your lifestyle posts.

    • Thanks so much Rebekka!! I could not agree more. I went to art school and have the utmost respect for these artists and their craft. I appreciate that their work sometimes make for excellent photo opportunities haha but more than that I value the beauty they add to our city. Thanks so much for acknowledging, I’m so glad you agree and enjoyed 🙂 xx
