I wore this to visit Erin in Cleveland

A couple of weekends ago, I drove out to Cleveland for brunch and a day of vintage and thrift shopping with Erin. Every few months, I'm struck by the fact that I haven't left Pittsburgh in, well, months, so it's always a welcome change of pace to leave PGH behind in favor of something different. On this particular day, after a pretty amazing lunch, Erin showed me around the West Side Market, where this wall is located. I'm fairly certain I've seen a similar, albeit less formal wall on the North Side of Pittsburgh, but essentially: people write what they want to do, or hope to accomplish before they die. It's neat to read off what others have written, and though I didn't add my own admission to the wall, I found it thought provoking nonetheless. What would I have written? I'm not sure, there's just so much that I hope to do, to accomplish, to see before I check out. I guess that might be it: I want to travel more. What would you have written?

Outfit-wise, I kept it easy. I've been favoring flat shoes lately, just for simplicity and comfort's sake. When I'm out and about I need to be able to move, to be unencumbered. I've been wearing these boots non-stop for exactly that reason, they're so comfortable and an easy addition to a dress and jewelry on the weekend (I love this pair too, and imagine they'd look great with jeans).
