Clowin' Around (But Seriously)

If wearing the same clown shirt days in a row is wrong, I don't wanna be right.
I thrifted this amazing shirt on the coast recently.
(leggings: target * vintage boots: thrift * purse: thrift)
I feel like the middle clown, the sad one.
I am sad to leave Oregon and the pacific northwest. In related news, I am moving to Virginia, where I grew up.
I've learned and done a lot out here but it is time to move on and look for new opportunities.
Part of me feels down in the dumps.
My reasons for moving back are that I am trying to regroup and develop my portfolio as I seek more stable employment. While I'm looking for new opportunities, I wanted to be closer to my friends and family. Even my best friend from Oregon now lives in Virginia so...
Have you ever left someplace you really liked? Somehow I know Oregon will always be in my life.
ps:What do you think of the dark lipstick? It's MAC's "deepest wish" which I've had a while but feel like abusing this summer.

  1. All of my leggings are from Target.  I have quite a bunch.  They are the best.

    When I left LA last March, I thought I would die from sadness. It still kinda hurts, but not all the time ;)

  3. Leaving Portland?! I'm sorry to hear it!

    Oh my gosh, I love your blog! It's so charming! I loooove thrifting xD And I totally understand what you mean. I just moved to Hawaii from living in AZ ALL my life. I absolutely love it her, and don't regret moving, but I still feel like I don't know my place, or where my direction is taking me. It's like I don't know where each step is going to take me and that worries me :P You're not alone, though. I think it all just comes down to following your heart <3
    I was hoping we could follow and friend each other! Thanks!


  6. I love your haircut. Mega cute! 

  7. I love your lipstick!

    I just moved back where I grew up, too.  I've been able to reconnect with friends and there have been a lot of changes since I left, but Birmingham still feels like my real home.  I miss it.  It's nice to be here and regroup, though, I definitely needed the break!  

    Welcome back to the South!  I hope the move goes as quickly and seamlessly as possible for you.

  8. Hey me your address so i can send you your giveaway item....oooh exciting!

  9. Tee hee, you look great in these photos. The light is amazing, and I love the settings. (Yes, especially the dumpster.) XOXO

  10. Let's!  We could meet like halfway between AL & VA and have adventures.

  11. damn, what a cool, full of amazing and interesting things blog!  I just can't get away :D and I'm totally in love with your sense of style, you have a new fan! ♥

  12. Such a great post! I love the tee...great find.

    I love NYC. Unfortunately it's just WAY to expensive to live there...

  13. Have fun in Virginia! I grew up there as well, but by "grew up", I mean I lived there until I turned 3. ;)
    I love the outfit! I always love your outfits, but this stands out to me. You pull off all black perfectly. ;) And for some reason, I really love the photo of the blue trash cans. The colours are gorgeous, haha.

  14. aw, that is very sweet, there are like 4 compliments squeezed into
    your super nice comment!


looking forward to hearing from you!
