Days Go By.

Hey guys! Happy Memorial Day weekend.  I hope you all are celebrating the holiday as you please, with BBQ'S and sunshine and laughter and friends.  

This is my last post here in Oakland before venturing off to a new beginning in Portland, Oregon.  I honestly cannot believe the time is finally here.  We have most of our belongings packed up in boxes lying in the middle of our apartment, waiting idly by until the day we finally load them up into the truck and drive off into the sunrise (yes, we are leaving at the crack of dawn to get up there as soon as we can.. yikes).  

I almost didn't do an official "last blog post in Oakland" because I honestly thought I wouldn't have the time.  But surprise, surprise, being an adult and actually getting things done in a timely manner rather than procrastinating to the very last minute actually pays off.. and in my case left me with some free moments to shoot some photos.  I'm so grateful it worked out this way.  I had been wanting to shoot an outfit post in this little spot one last time before moving, and I guess it was meant to be.  I kept the look somewhat simple here and very "me" with all old clothes from my closet and my trusty nosebleed boots (they are honestly the only heel I wear these days).  

I got a little emotional walking back from taking the photos.. I stopped along the way any second I saw something that caught my eye and snapped a pic and took it all in because I knew it would be the last time I'd walk my familiar path in my soon to be former neighborhood.  Do moments ever catch you like that?  Where the thought of how fleeting yet beautiful life can be all at once is crazy intimidating? I don't know.. I tend to get a little overwhelmed by it all.. but the funny thing is I wouldn't trade it for anything.  

Portland, here I come.  Get ready for me. ;)

Thank you so much for reading.  Love to you ALL. =^.^=

  1. I hope your move goes smoothly~ What a big life change! When I moved away from LA I definitely got a tinge of that bittersweetness. Watching the smoggy city disappear behind me really hit me in the feels. But alas, life must go on, onto bigger and greater things!

    1. Heyyy! My move went as smoothly as can be expected haha.. a few bumps in the road but we've got it all sorted out. Just need to land that perfect job now. ;) But yay, I finally have internet again! Can't wait to document all the new, cool stuff. And yes, on to bigger and great things! <3

  2. I'm so happy for you! I mean, if moving to a new city has its bad side too, of course, but nothing compares to the fact that when you move you are entering a whole new place with new people and new experiences! Even though I love my city, I would love to move to know a new way of life.
    Anyway, this outfit is incredibly incredible!!! I loved how it came out casual but you kept it in your own personal style! And that sunglasses omg..so beautiful <33
    I wish you all the best, dear :)

    with the patterned green shorts and the blue denim jacket.
