There’s been lots of talk in Oregon about the upcoming total solar eclipse on August 21st. A few cities sit in the ‘path of totality,’ where the sun will be completely covered by the moon. If you ask me, it’s sort of spooky that it will get totally dark for a few minutes in the middle of the day. And the temperature is even expected to drop several degrees. We’re debating whether we want to drive south to see the eclipse in its entirety, weighing if it will be worth the predicted traffic nightmare. Do any of you guys have plans for the eclipse?
Next month marks 20 years since Princess Diana died. I can hardly believe it. I remember crying my eyes out, mourning for her sons, particularly the eldest, whom I was crushing on, just like every other 14-year-old girl at the time.

Two years ago at this time I was sporting an outfit that I didn’t really love, and it’s no surprise that those three items have moved on to new homes. Part of the process of learning my style has meant cycling items in and out of my wardrobe over time, hopefully in the slowest and most responsible way possible.
