Jet lagged

jeans: urban outfitters // shoes: h&m // belt: street sale, SF // tank: target // lace t-shirt: f21 (exact) // necklace: made out of an old purse string // cardigan: target via thrift, CA (similar) // bag: thrifted, ME // scarf: target via thrift (similar)

Oh, hai there! It's been awhile. Moving across the country is... not so much fun; true story. I spent most of last week juggling packing, cleaning, working, and saying goodbye to friends and family. It was jam-packed, followed by a restless night's sleep in our apartment, sans-mattress (pro tip: sleeping on a wooden floor? Not so comfortable), and then hectic flight from San Francisco to Boston with two drugged and unhappy felines. As you can imagine, it's been an exhausting week, and I haven't had the time to think about blogging. I've missed you all -- how have you been?

As these pics demonstrate, I'm pretty sleepy these days -- the cats have made a quick transition to East Coast time, waking me up to feed them when the sun comes up, but 6:30 am EST feels like 3:30 am to me still, which is... too early. Way too early. These pics were taken our first day in Boston (in Cambridge, actually), and I can't get over how tired I look (and sadly still feel, three days later). I'm looking forward to being done with this transitional phase and fully adjusted to our new routines -- or at least moved into our apartment in Maine (we get the keys tomorrow -- yippee!).

    also, one of my loveliest blog friends lives in boston. elissa of style-wire is awesome and y'all should meet up sometime (and then visit austin to come see me!).

  2. I'm rather in love with that scarf.. and that door.
    Maybe one day I'll make it to Boston, I've always always wanted to visit (and a flight delay there doesn't count!) So much amazingness I want to see!

    Glad to hear you made it there okay! :)

  10. Hi dearest, I'm praying you and all of your loved ones are fine. I'm so distraught with all of that's gone on in Boston this morning. You're the first person that came to my mind when I found out. Thoughts and prayers are all going y'all's way.


    1. Kristina,
      Thanks so much for your thoughts and kind words. My family and friends are all okay, from what I've managed to hear so far. It's a scary, hard time and I heart Boston like nothing else. Sending love and thanks right back atcha.
