Everything in transit

Floral dress c/o Lovely Wholesale / Scalloped bag from asos / Lace sneakers from H&M

Ever get so nostalgic that you forget where you are? It's my first summer away from Ottawa in three years. Toronto is nice and all, but there's nothing quite like living close to a river while still being within walking distance to downtown. Luckily, I've found Dundas (a western suburb of Hamilton). Downtown is lined with unique little shops and food places tucked into cute small town architecture. Strolling through the streets, it reminds me so much of Ottawa's Glebe. Sometimes, I'll have glimpses of "whoa wait, where am I again?" In a good way. It's the feeling of familiarity. Hopefully, getting a chance to visit familiar surroundings will help with distracting forms of nostalgia. Like when I'm at work and a song from an Ottawa-area band comes on. Then I find myself staring off into the distance reminiscing, which is probably not good for productivity. Hopefully to my coworkers, I just look like I'm deep in thought...

  34. whenever I'm away from home I always get so nostalgic, and then when I'm at home, I have wanderlust. I've just come to terms with how fickle human nature is in not knowing what we want, so I'm learning to consciously enjoy wherever I am. :)
