At a Crossroads

There is something achingly nostalgic about train tracks, especially old, worn-out routes no longer travelled.  Jaze and I wandered around these tracks near our apartment, which have a surprisingly good view of the San Francisco Bay.  We hung around to watch the sunset.  I was inspired by the vintage handbag I found at a local flea when drawing this outfit together.  I love black and cognac together, and I was beside myself when I found this bag, which is also functional since my laptop and notebook fit perfectly.  Wearing it reminded me that classes begin next month! Can't believe I'll be starting my last semester at Berkeley.  Definitely bittersweet.

  5. I really love this outfit! That shirt is amazing.
    I agree, train tracks are so nostalgic! I wish we had some close to where I live, because I would LOVE to do outfit posts with the train tracks around.

    1. Thanks! The top was a good find. I like that it's lose fitting and comfortable to wear to work as well. The scenery where you take your photos is so pretty! It's nice that you have the ocean nearby.

  6. I absolutely love your posts- how cute is this backdrop? I think the abandoned tracks are so nostalgic too, especially since they've outrun their use in present day. And your outfit is SO cute. How awesome that you found that bag at a flea- i would absolutely LOVE to have a piece like that for my laptop. Instead I just keep stealing my boyfriend's back pack, haha. Lose lose for all :(
