Adding more ART

Hey guys.. great news! There is more to come to Renaissance Zafi. As a renaissance woman I have been trying to integrate some of my other loves. Here is my first post to make the effort and officially start adding some art adventures! I will be posting about gallery and museum visits... as well as hopefully some of my own artwork process posts..

When I went home I was able to visit the Akron Art Museum. It def is not as big as the Met, and it's not NYC, but it's part of my hometown. The Akron Art Museum is also pretty impressive for a local small town museum. Firstly, the architecture alone is amazing. It connects old and new, part an old brick building, and the other half a gorgeous glass creation of amazing angles. Thanks to my brother I was able to take a minute and marvel at this Akron wonder designed by Coop Himmelb(l)au. (thanks Faris, for teaching me that as well!) Secondly, it houses some pretty famous works of art- Chuck Close, Frank Stella, Kehinde Wiley, also many artists that I personally know! Some of my professors have work exhibited, and it is inspiring. Maybe one day you will see my work there? 

It was gross and rainy the entire time I was home. I wore my pacific thermal from free people, my New fave Tobi jeans, my go to Nasty Gal jacket, and black booties.

I hope you all are back in the swing of things after the holidays. NYC just had a couple days that were super cold and windy. When I'm cold, I don't want to do anything. It’s tempting to be lazy and stay cozy inside, but then I get stir crazy!  Plus, when you get all bundled up and go out exploring on those cold, cold days, you always feel refreshed.

A few years ago, I discovered the brand One Piece Jump In . When I saw it on tumblr, I just knew I had to have one. They are so much better than your average onesie. They are made of super warm, sweat shirt material, have a range of sizes and colors, and are unisex. I love how it zips all the way to the top, which is so funny, but on those arctic days you need that additional coverage. Shortly after purchasing one, I noticed it to be a popular piece amongst celebrities like Katy Perry, One Direction, J Beibs, Miley Cyrus, and even Gossip Girl's Chuck Bass.

I have been all about the onesie trend for a few years now, and my love is just as strong. I love that with the One Piece brand I can layer it, or tie it around my waist. It’s perfect for a comfy, casual day, or also running errands and working around the city.

I wore mine with a simple fleece long sleeve underneath, my Steve Madden combat boots, a Free People beanie for a pop of color, and a Pac Sun X Kendall & Kylie scarf.

You all have to check out this brand if you live somewhere cold! I’m already thinking about getting another one...
