If you’re from Texas, you know that it is the birthplace of Dr. Pepper, and to me that was the perfect excuse for the love I’ve had for it since such a young age. I ordered it with every meal, even when I went out of town (which I soon learned they seldom had the further away from Texas you got). As I became older, I grew more aware of the health issues concerning soda and sugary drinks, so I ventured into the tea and water world. I came to do a little shopping at the Dr. Pepper center and decided to indulge myself for the first time in many years. To my surprise it wasn’t as refreshing as I remember, so let’s just hope my palate has done some maturing and leave it at that… or maybe it could have even been my mature outfit influencing my taste buds?  We’ll never know. But what I do know, is that wearing a faux blazer was not the right move in this Texas heat.  So what did I do? Took it off and never looked back. Then put it back on. (I have a small issue with decisions regarding my appearance AKA  it takes me longer than the average girl to get ready since I have something to the sorts of “The Spotlight effect”)

DON’T OBEY, REVOLT

This week, I’d like to mention an artist who immediately caught my attention.  As I was scrolling through an Instagram page I happened to stumble upon a vibrant piece of art, one with a style that I immediately fell in love with. The artist is Chris Hobe, most known for his brand Revolt, a style that would fall into the category of urban pop art. His artwork has grown popular amongst Instagram and Twitter, even resulting in celebrities buying his pieces. I personally love Revolt not only for the vibrant pops of color and amazing graffiti-like patterns, but his message. He has a certain thought put in to his artwork that differs throughout each piece, mostly having to do with anti-government rebellion. His brand truly is the “Artistic Revolution”. Revolts opinions of democracy combined with 1950’s style pictures, he is nothing less but an artist on the rise.

“Don’t Obey, Revolt.”

SNO-CONES AT KLYDE WARREN PARK

When I get dressed in the morning the last thing I complete my outfit with is my shoes. Which, in some cases, can cause my look to head in a completely different direction, and it can be as simple as throwing on a pair of converse. Wearing some punk, rugged shoes matched with a girly, classic outfit can always throw some edge into your look. In this case I did it to this lovely summer dress. I could have worn sandals or even heels, but when it came down to it I felt being at a park all day definitely called for some comfort and what better shoe to have (I have 3 pairs) than converse. I was skipping around Clyde-Warren park in downtown Dallas, ordering sno-cones  from food trucks parked along the side, and playing ping-pong (mind you was not the easiest in a mini-dress). I even got dared to run through some ground fountains, which I did-screaming like a little girl the whole way through. Luckily for me, I was able to keep my energy and enthusiasm thanks to my feet being nice and comfy, keeping me an active, happy Natasha. Something  I definitely couldn’t be if my shoes were killing me.
