In case you didn’t know, I am obsessed with art! One of my favorite things to do is spend the day roaming around museums. There’s just something about not knowing what’s around the next corner and always getting to discover something new. When I go with my family, it always amazes me how no one has the same interpretation of each piece. Needless to say, when we went on a day trip to Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas, I took somewhere around 500 pictures. But don’t worry, I’ve narrowed it down (a little) for you guys 😉
I realized after the trip that I didn’t keep track of the names and artists of the art pieces, but I’m sure if you go to the Crystal Bridges website you can find more information in their online gallery.
Romper: Old Navy (on sale!) Sandals: old Purse: Steve Madden (old) Necklace: Old Navy
I love this romper! Normally, I am not a big fan of rompers, but the mixed prints and the overlay on the top made me fall head over heels. When Philip saw me in it he said, “Wait, that’s all one piece? I thought you were wearing shorts and a shirt.”
More cheesy boyfriend pictures. I would say I’m sorry, but we all know I’m really not 🙂
Dad tried to pose like I do. I think this picture deserves to be on the cover of Vogue. Does anyone else think that, or is it just me?
A picture of dad with his new girlfriend. She has a heart of stone if you ask me. What? I couldn’t help it! I love puns!
I tried to take a picture in front of this sign and a random guy decided he wanted to get his picture taken too. I guess the camera loves him.
“Hey look! Modern Art!” – direct quote from the moment we saw this
This was my favorite piece of art from the whole day. There’s just something about how graceful she is. I swear I stood and stared at it for at least 20 minutes. I found it enchanting and mesmerizing.
This was Dad’s favorite piece of art from the day. Something about it made him laugh, and I have to admit I smiled when I saw it too.
Pictures of the fam being cute. They just can’t stop being adorable.
Finally, here is a picture of us in front of the Frank Lloyd Wright house at Crystal Bridges. If you ever find yourself in Bentonville, Arkansas, I highly recommend this museum. And you have to check out the house! Sadly, they don’t allow people to take pictures inside the house, but there are pictures of it on the website. I love Frank Lloyd Wright and I would love to live in this tiny house.
So, long post short, we had a fantastic time at Crystal Bridges. I know that this post has been really long, but hopefully it was worth the read! I’ll see you guys next week with a shorter and less chaotic post. But no promises, it’s still a working progress.
