I'm good at pretending I'm really cool when I drive on the parkway on a Friday afternoon opening up to MDW. There are a few key things you need to do regardless of anything going on.
So here for you, is a list on HOW to PRETEND to be really COOL like you have major plans for MDW 2014. You are welcome.
2. Aviators. Any of these will do the trick for you, but if your wallet isn't being generous, these (identical) will work as well! [Seriously, I'm LOVING Forever21 lately, maybe I'm really nervous that I'm getting closer to my 30th as the day goes on and on!]
3. GOOD MUSIC. LOUD. BEATS THUMPING. Like I said before, anything by Krewella. Other artists I highly suggest would be: Tiesto, Calvin Harris, Armin van Buuren or Cash Cash. If techno really isn't your thing, check out this fabulous playlist*! (*I had to recreate it from a website it didn't work on. Credit goes to: Starmedia)
4. A really great manicure, with Neon colored nail polish. So what if you are hating on this neon trend? One weekend won't kill you!!! My favorites:
and finally, #5. CONFIDENCE!
You don't need all these stupid silly things to make you "cool"!!! You are COOL no matter what you do or have. As long as you have the confidence in yourself that you are "cool" you will have the most fabulous Memorial Day weekend ever. Throw in some Sam Adams Summer Ale and burgers & dogs and it will be awesome. YAY for 3 day weekends!
(I know I am super optimistic writing this on Tuesday, but I just love MDW!)
