Street Art of Chicago.


Hiii guys! Wow, am I excited for today's blog post! I wanted to post something a little different on my blog but I wasn't sure what. Last week, as Paolo (my ) and I were driving by North Chicago, I noticed a lot of street art and asked him to pull over for us to take some pictures. I went home that day, sat on my bed and grabbed my camera. As I was looking through the pictures, I realized this is what I wanted my new blog post to be! I quickly grabbed my cellphone to go on Pinterest to check on possible locations to find some more street art and I was lucky enough to find a post by Jenn Lake. She dedicated a whole post about Street Art in Chicago and a guide on where to locate them. I was so excited about this and I have her to be thankful for the inspiration. Incase any of you would like to check out her blog, I'll link it at the end of this post! I hope you guys enjoy, it was so fun to take these shots and at the same time explore Chicago for it's true hidden beauty. Chicago is one of my favorite cities and after seeing all of this, I love it even more! I hope this inspires you to take a trip down to this beautiful city. Enjoy!

If you decide to visit any of these locations, please feel free to tag me in your posts! I would love to see your shots as well :)

Red and Yellow Zigzag Garage Door


This garage door is located right next to the Greetings from Chicago Art wall. It is right under the EI tracks. Grab the opportunity to take a shot here as well, since both are at the same location!

Love in Bucktown


This is one of my fav locations! There is actually 3 love walls you can choose from! This is a great background for all you lovebirds who want to take those cute shots. Funny story, when we were taking this, there was a couple right next to us having their prenup shots taken, it was so cute!

Let's Keep It Professional


We struggled taking this shot because of it's location. It was right under a bridge and a
lot of cars kept passing by. Other than that, the art is so beautiful!
