On She Goes Mural

The city of Portland has an incredible collection of murals. Many of which I’ve wrestled with posting about because of the color of my skin. I cannot change the color of my skin. As a white person, I wonder if I’m worthy enough to post about the murals that celebrate different cultures. I’m still not sure if I am….

However, I love art, I love murals, I love my African American friends, and I want to continue to share the beauty of the city with you. Murals brighten my day each time I spot a new one in this city. The first time Peter and I drove by the On She Goes mural I could not get over the vibrancy of it. I love bright colors and this mural continues to make me smile each time I drive by it.

Along Alberta Street and Martin Luther King Boulevard are the most gorgeous murals representing the ethnic history of the area. This mural is one of many that I plan to continue to add to my Portland Mural Guide (which is always a work in progress of getting updated).

To finish the outfit, I put on my favorite dark wash skinny jeans, leopard print flats, and leopard print clutch.
