Friends Keep Us Grounded

We all have a group of people that we call family. For some this group consists of a family we are born into. While for others, these people are our friends who we call family. We have our reasons for choosing the people we call family. For me my friends are my family. They are my grounding foundation. They are the people I turn to for advice, the voice of reason, and a shoulder to lean on. My friends are an important part in my life. Though we may not see each other every day, the moment we see each other again it is as if no time has passed between us. My friends keep me grounded.

Overall Opinion:

I pieced this outfit together after just seeing the top. It is one that I do not normally wear and instantly fell in love with. I went out of my comfort zone and full heartedly embraced it. I paired with pants from another set and a pair of boots I picked up a while back during a Fifty Linden Friday. I was very satisfied with the outcome of the outfit. I decided it needed a splash of colour and opted for a gorgeous set of long beads.

Playing in the Leaves

This afternoon I needed to clear my thoughts. Deciding that the best way was to go for a walk, I left my house and walked down the stony walk way. Past trees and flowers preparing for a long winters rest and into the forest. I watched as the squirrels scampered about and played among the leaves. I watched as they ran from one tree to another and leaves fell to the ground. I watched as they ran through the leaves, chattering to each other.

Overall Opinion:

This outfit is perfect for the cooler weather. It gives off the feeling of being warm and comfortable. Not a fan of giraffe, it comes in other styles as well allowing you to choose your personal favourite. It is perfect for any occasion, personally I wore it out shopping and out for a walk.
