My Artful Winter Park Adventure

{Wearing: Top and Skirt: Style Mafia. Shoes: Aldo. Bag: Chanel.}

I’ve always had a thing for art. I guess because it’s one outlet I can’t do, so I admire it. I don’t have a particular style or medium that I gravitate toward. I just like what I like because it speaks to me. Finds a little place inside of me and connects. So, when I got the opportunity to film the Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival for Visit Florida, it was a good thing. The bonus? I kicked off the trip at the Alfond Inn. The hotel is known for its extensive art collection. And what I most loved about it was how modern it was. It was unexpected. And beautiful. Each piece managed to be placed next to perfect light. Here’s a look at a bit of it as well as my adventure.

Obligatory jumping-on-the-bed shot. It’s just what I do.

This one, this one is amazing.

And then it was off to the art festival, where art was also much more modern than I anticipated. My favorite pieces were these little robots called flobots (as in robots made from found objects). It’s creator scours flea markets for vintage pieces to construct her robots. That found a little place in my heart, because I’ve always been such a vintage girl. It was taking something I love and giving it new life. There was so much more to see. I can’t wait for the video to be out next month.
