Art meets tech at the new Beyond Van Gogh, immersive experience in San Jose! I was thrilled when Beyond Van Gogh invited me to attend their press preview party last Thursday; one day before the event’s grand opening. It was amazing to be able to view the new exhibit, and to take photos, in order to share the event with you. If you are local, I hope you want to go!

I don’t want to give away too much information, because then you won’t be surprised when you attend the event. So, I will give you a brief overview!

The “Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience” is currently being held at the San Jose Convention Center in downtown San Jose. It’s an amazing walk-through and experience you won’t want to miss! The exhibit begins with an educational walk-through which details Van Gogh’s life and experiences. This is an important, educational moment in the exhibit, so make sure you read it all!

After reading about Van Gogh’s life, inspiration, and experiences, you will be guided into an immersive room which walks you through his paintings and life works. His artwork is grouped by theme, and using technology, the paintings fade in and out, and immerse you inside of them! It really is quite an amazing experience!

My husband and I chose to stand, pause, and wander through the area. If you prefer to sit, there are benches around the room, and some attendees sat on the ground and really felt themselves immersed into the art. This truly is an incredible fusion of art and tech. My husband even commented that he would love to see other artists works’ in this way. I agree!

It is also a great way to introduce Van Gogh to children, who may otherwise bore at a traditional museum. The immersive experience is fun for kids; as we witnessed several children enjoying themselves during the event. I immediately regretted not bringing my kids. This is a great exhibit for families!

Well, I don’t want to give away too much. I would love for you to attend “Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience” yourself! The event starts Friday, September 24, 2021 and runs through November 14, 2021. They have daytime and evenings hours, so you can choose if you want to do a family outing, or date night! Love that!

Casual fall look and a spring bag

We are finally getting some fall weather! I met my Mom for brunch the other day, and the weather was mild. It was perfect to wear jeans, and this fun little peek-a-boo shoulder tee. This tee will definitely be versatile this fall season. In addition to casual looks with jeans, I plan to pair it with my green pleated skirt for dressy occasions. Love!

These jeans are roughly three years old. I haven’t fit into them since I originally purchased them, so it was really nice to be able to put them on! Not only do they fit, they are one size too big! Thankfully I have a new belt to help keep my pants up! Replacing a wardrobe takes time; especially after losing thirty pounds!

In case you missed my post on Sunday, this cute little daytime tote bag is from Coach’s spring 2022 runway collection. It’s really easy to wear daily, and it’s fun to have something from next season! You can read my full review here.

I hope you are starting to enjoy some fall weather where you are! We are toggling back and forth between mild temperatures and 90’s. Ugh!

Thanks for stopping by!

It’s that time of year when we transition from summer into fall! I love the new fall styles this season. There is inspiration from the 1970s, ’80’s, and ’90’s. It is going to be a fun season mixing trends from all three decades!

I wore this casual fall outfit out to lunch last week. I wanted to create a fall vibe, yet still be comfortable in the high 70’s temperatures. This outfit worked!

These loafers were perfect for walking around Santana Row before and after lunch. The leather is soft, and the square toes offer plenty of room so my toes stay happy, and are not squished. I know, you know, what I mean!

We enjoyed lunch at Meso Mediterranean at Santana Row. If you haven’t been there yet, you must try the hummus with mushrooms. It is divine! They also have plenty of vegan and vegetarian options on the menu, so there is something for everyone! My meal was vegetarian, and it was delicious!

It was nice to enjoy more moderate temperatures than we have been having, and switching to my fall capsule wardrobe. I’m looking forward to even cooler temperatures in a month or so!
