The whole world is moving and I'm standing still - San Francisco, CA

ASOS back cutout dolman top, Chanel earrings, Hermès enamel bracelet, F21 jeggings

The interior of this hotel room is like my ideal place, original exposed brick wall, and a vintage vaulted window frame that opens (reluctantly, with a lot of wiggling) to lead up to the rooftop overlooking the city or down to a fire escape (have always romanticized fire escapes from that Postal Service song), and it lets in a glorious flood of light.

I'll be the fire escape that's bolted to the ancient brick
Where you will sit and contemplate your day.

Brand New Colony - Postal Service
