Last Friday, Jim and I took our friends Gina and Mark to MOMA and then headed slightly cross-town to Times Square. The street artist JR currently has the Inside Out Project set up there and we wanted to check it out and hopefully get to participate.
JR is best known for his portraits, so as part of this project he’s taking portraits of New Yorkers throughout the 5 boroughs and installing them in areas around the city. To make the process crazy efficient, they have a fully outfitted photography studio truck, so they’ve been moving the truck from neighborhood to neighborhood. If you visit their Facebook Page, the portraits done around the Rockaways and other Sandy stricken areas are so powerful it makes me well up. I highly recommend checking it out.
We had heard the photo truck was in Times Square so we took a quick walk over to see if we could participate. Sadly, they weren’t there due to a 10k race being set up for the weekend. But we still had a great time enjoying the incredible weather and checking out all the portraits pasted to the sidewalks.
Gina and I also wanted to take the opportunity to take our own portraits amongst the portraits. How meta, right?
The Inside Out Project is supposed to be in Times Square through May 10th. Jim and I are still hoping to make it there one day after work to get ours done. If you participate you have the option to either have it pasted at the site, or to take it home with you. We’d love to have the portraits for our apartment, so fingers crossed we’ll be able to make it happen!

The one thing that I didn’t like about having bright red hair is that it clashed horribly with neon. Last summer I went on a huge neon kick and picked up tons of pieces in highlighter yellow. I absolutely love it! But alas, I couldn’t have both the awesome red hair and the neon with it, so I’ve gone months without wearing one of my favorite colors.
Now that my hair is back to my natural color, that means I can wear it again. Oh neon, I’ve missed you!
On a totally unrelated note, this entire week I’ve had to wear flats and I’m so not used to it. I had broken my foot a few years ago and noticed this week after an intense Crossfit session it was starting to bother me in the same exact place. For fear I may have re-fractured it, I figured it best I stay off of it and stick to flats for the next week or so to allow it to get back to normal. I miss my heels though!
Is there a color you love that you feel forced to stay away from?

So it’s warm enough nowadays for dresses but not for sandals just yet. I couldn’t wait to wear this new graphic, black and white tie dye dress I recently picked up at H&M so I threw on some moto style boots and I was ready to go. I have a feeling this outfit will be a uniform for me the next coming weekends. I LOVE the entire look.
I really like wearing maxi dresses on weekends. They’re super comfortable and all you have to do is throw it on over your head and you are dressed and presentable for the day with minimal effort.
Notice a trend here on Brooklyn Bliss? I don’t like having to think or put a lot of effort into much of anything. Everything’s got to be easy. That and comfortable. I might seem pretty put together but truth is I’m just on auto-pilot and have found systems over the years that work well for me. In all honesty I’m probably one of the laziest people on the planet. Truth.
Now that it’s spring, what’s been your weekend uniform?
