Old Portland

We drove pass this building all the time in downtown Portland but never did we stop and take a closer look at it! Finally today we walked to lunch and spent a few minutes to actually look at this beautifully old structure.
Do you ever feel like you are going at a way faster pace and never had the time to slow down and appreciate what is around you? Park the car somewhere further and take a walk. The city may appear so differently. Cherish every moment when you are healthy and alive. It's the littlest thing that counts :)
p.s. my skirt is here more than 10 years old (I had it since end of my high school year haha). It's all things old today!
Hidden heel sneakers from Ash, PS1 medium bag in plum from HgBags
My new favourite bloom necklace from BaubleBar (I'm hooked), stackable rings from Stella & Dot
I am getting ready to go on a 3 day trip with a girlfriend. I can't wait :)

Oh my God, this is such an unconventional and cool outfit. I've never seen anything like it and it speaks to your distinct style so well. And yes, it's amazing that we never stop to analyze the details, isn't it? Sometimes, we take advantage of where we live, because we see it everyday and we think it will always be there, and never really stop to notice the little things. I think the photos are so beautiful, and so is the old structure!

I like the yellow and purple combination! I also have one skirt in my closet that I've had since I was a teenager... At least it still fits ;)

That is a beautiful building :)

Really like the purple and yellow together, it's such a nice combination :)

And it is the little things in life we often take for granted and wish we had appreciated more when we had them.
