peachy keen

Providence is such a gorgeous city, one which I don’t visit nearly enough despite the fact that it is so close to home. The architecture is something that always gets me when I stop by – everything is so quaint and pleasing to the eye. Honestly I could wander through its streets with my head in the clouds for days (of course then I might get run over since it is a city), and one of my favorite spots to marvel at this is up and around Thayer St. where I was today. This street is laden with cute shops, unique restaurants and surrounded by stunning buildings; just the tip of the iceberg of what Providence offers.

While wandering, I managed to enjoy some window-shopping, falafel and relaxing under the shade of ancient trees (where I could safely admire all that was around me). I stumbled across this intricate peach wall/arch that matched my outfit so well it was as if we both planned a complementary rendezvous together. Soft colors of peach, airy whites and shiny silvers was the color pallet of choice, and it offered a relaxing cool against the warm weather haze. I have owned most of these pieces for years and years (not as long as this building has been up though) and I always get excited when I create an outfit I have never worn before. I am sure I’ll be repeating this one a few more times…
