But that was just a dream, just a dream

 Dress: Laundry by Shelli Segal; Jacket: Aeropostale, thrifted; Shoes: Clarks.
Listening to: "Losing My Religion," REM.

It's been a busy couple weeks, but I am trying to keep up with outfit posts.

I've talked a lot about how much this little college town means to me, and how I associate some of its music history is now associated with my personal past. It's hard to walk downtown without hearing the greatest hits of REM, the B-52s and other bands that have played at venues like the Georgia Theater. So when REM announced their breakup earlier this week, a little chapter of this town's history came to a close, and it felt appropriate to visit the Murmur Trestle (site of one of their album covers) and pay my own little homage.

I've been here before -- here are some of my favorite Athens-related posts:

- Murmur: A moment in Athens music history.
- Literal REM: Site of REM's first show.
- I dream of a living jungle: Revisiting the trestle.
- This town: I have often walked down this street before...

What do you find significant and wonderful about your town?

Happy Friday!
