Instagramable Indy | A Guide to the Most Insta Worthy Spots in Indianapolis



I am absolutely in love with this city of mine!  Indianapolis has been my home for over six years, and it seems like it just keeps getting better.  I believe that Indy is a little secret us Hoosiers have.  Visitors are always surprised by the art, events and great restaurants.  Indy is not only a great place to visit (and live!), but has some of the most Insta worthy spots in the Midwest.  Here are just a few of my favorite places!  Most photos are pulled from my personal Instagram account, but the others are linked to their posters!

Bayside Tiger Chess Club

Sooner or later most clothing a man owns will slowly become his wife's.  Over the past 6 years I have stolen borrowed Scot's undershirts, college hoodies and even his old shower sandals.  What's yours is mine right?  He hated the fact that I wore his old beat up Adidas slides as my house slippers, especially since they are were several sizes too large! He made fun of me for roughly two years before breaking down and buying me a pair of my very own.  He went into my closet, threw away the sandals and placed these babies on the bed.  Point. Taken. 

I paired them with my favorite shirt from college which was hand painted by my girlfriend Karin.  Years ago we dressed up as the Bayside Tiger Chess Club to tailgate a football game, and she made all of our shirts!  I still wear mine at least once a week while lounging at home.  Finished off with a super casual knit skirt, this look was super comfy and all my own!

Wrap It Up

I love a good wrap dress.  They're almost universally flattering, great work work or play and in my eyes are essentially timeless.  A great wrap dress is always worth the investment.  I picked up this dress three years ago and it has been in stead rotation since then- and it still looks as good as the day I bought it.  Check out other ways I have styled it here and here

Meh

Every now and again I will wear an outfit that I view as "meh".  Sometimes it is because I am running late and throw on what I can and other times an outfit seems great in my head and not so great IRL.  It happens to the best of us I am sure!  Come on guys, please tell me it does!

This outfit was interesting for me because immediately after leaving my house I regretted it.  The pants  were too baggy and felt unflattering, the prints didn't play so well together and the booties seemed like the wrong choice.  However, it always seems like these are the days where I get the most compliments!  Several people went out of their way to say they liked this look which A) made me feel a lot better and B) made me question my taste!!
