You're a little bit damaged, I'm a sucker for that...

I'm the picture that's faded, I'm the love you don't trust.

As I've stated in previous posts, I am going through a stressful time with my boyfriend of five years. It's not anything either one of was prepared for... Let's just say, my entire life has pretty much been turned upside down. I am now trying to get used to a lifestyle I never expected to ever have to live, and so is he. This process has probably been one of the hardest, and most eye opening experiences I've encountered in my 24 years of existence. I'm sure most of you are probably wondering what the hell I could possibly be talking about, but I really don't feel like sharing it publicly yet. Just know that if I'm not entirely acting like myself, this is probably why.
I recently took a random road trip with my grandparents to the Oregon Coast. It was a refreshing trip, waves crashing on the shore and the foggy mist couldn't have made a more perfect setting for the thoughts that rushed through my mind. I could feel myself slowly giving into the dark thoughts that once clouded my brain for so many years. It has been a 'one-day-at-a-time' process to escape them, but I am getting by. Just finding ways to keep my mind distracted from the darkness before it settles in too deep.
Lace Cardigan: Forever 21
Floral Skirt & Leather Boots: Secondhand
'Spare Parts' Necklace: Made by Myself
Carved Black Rose Plugs: Dunny Gun
 Striped Thigh High Socks: Sock Dreams
This outfit was simply inspired by the fact that I knew I would be sitting in a car for hours. I wanted something I could be comfortable in, and I'm pretty in love with thigh high socks. They are so comfy and perfect for fall! The lace cardigan went nicely with the floral pattern on the skirt, and I of course had to wear my black rose carved plugs to really pull all the floral together. I am really kind of obsessed with this print for fall. Floral for fall is a lovely distraction from the reality of the cold air killing all the pretty flowers. But I do love the changing colors of all the leaves this time of the year. Now I feel like I'm just rambling, and have switched topics way more than enough for one post.

Over and Out... <3
