On the Rails



I really was born to travel. As far back as I can remember, I had dreams of driving through every state, flying to far away countries, and learning different languages- although that last goal changed after a few Spanish classes and realizing how hard it is ;) I feel so lucky to have found my match in someone that feels the same way, and is up for every possible vacation opportunity.

We travel to Oregon at least once a year to visit my family, and even though there’s the restfulness of a trip “home”, there’s still the excitement of finding new things to do, places to eat, and sites to see.

We drive by these tracks in Eugene on the way from my mom’s house to downtown. Obviously these aren’t passenger trains, but there is still one that goes through Eugene, and it got me thinking about train travel. We don’t even have an Amtrak stop in Phoenix, but I love the ease of traveling by train in Europe and the east coast and wish we had that option for quick trips.

    These pictures are awesome and you look so cute! I love when people take pictures with railroad tracks. I’ve been traveling around the city via metro a lot lately and I love it. Train travel definitely has a very exciting appeal to it.

    Cool location!! You always manage to find a nice “splash of color”. I love the shades, and bobble necklace and scarf! Perf!

    This outfit is so color and everything I associate with Lala Faux Bois.

    Also- yes, trains would make travel a lot easier, wouldn’t they?

    Beautiful photos! I always get a little nervous when I see bloggers on railroad tracks, but it does make a wonderful backdrop. And I looove this dress & the color combination on you!

      I know what you mean! I didn’t actually get on the tracks because I was afraid of a sandal getting stuck, haha! :)

    I love this outfit so much- that color combo is to die for! Also, what a pretty set of train tracks. I’m glad you’ve been having fun in Oregon. You should try to make it up to Seattle one of these days!

    Oh, what a lovely combination! I love the color of the dress paired with the colors of your accessories. It is fantastic! I would like to travel more as well. I took Spanish in high school and it was so difficult for me, I think I took a semester and decided I was too dumb for it, haha.

    Primary perfection Lisa! This is such a sweet outfit. I can never have too many headscarves like that in the summertime. So cute!

    I used to travel home by train from Philly to Harrisburg when I was in college. I really loved it and miss it! It’s just so much more relaxing.

      You’re so lucky to have great train access on the east coast! I agree, scarves are the best summer accessory!

    Oh I love train travel, I only wish it was faster. My daily commute involves buses and subway trains, but I wish I could easily and cheaply travel all over. This outfit is simply cute and I love the location.

    • lalafauxbois says:

      I agree! It’s hard when it takes so much time to commute. We have a light rail in PHX that is slower than driving every where so it’s hard to make myself use it!

    So in love with this dress (especially that color) and these photos/location. So really just all of it. Also, I just bought a pair of Swedish Hasbeens today with some birthday money, and I am PUMPED.

    P.S. Can I travel with you?

    I’ve never traveled long distance by a train, but now you’ve got me wondering how much a ticket to NYC would be. You’re giving me the travelling bug all over again! And don’t even get me started on learning a new language haha- my brain isn’t hardwired to absorb that kind of information. It’s SO hard for me =P
