Always Looking

I think I probably have a nose for sniffing out colorful walls. On my trip last month to Oregon, which you can read about in my post entitled Oregon Top Five, we took an impromptu drive to visit some friends in the city of Eugene. I didn't know anything about Eugene except that apparently it's a college town and it has a Voodoo doughnut shop! (That's pretty much all you need to know, right?) Well, as we were exploring the town before dinner, we came across this spectacular wall that was located in an alley. It's always exciting to discover new and unexpected finds like this, which is why I always have my eyes peeled!

What I was wearing the day we went to Eugene was luckily fairly neutral, so it matched the wall just perfectly! Other than my husband, I probably packed the lightest of all of the people we traveled with on this trip, which is ironic given the fact that, as we all know, I am a major clothes horse! Even though I don't travel a lot, I think I have the whole packing thing down to an art, but the Oregon trip really tested me! You see, on this particular trip, no one really had a plan on what to do during our one week stay, which makes it difficult to plan outfits! Therefore, I tried to bring pieces that could be mixed and matched and that would be versatile for a variety of activities. So while the trip wasn't exactly perfect, my wardrobe did work out perfectly!
