|Slip Dress: Rue 21 Jacket: thrifted Hat: c/o Oasap Boots: Just Fab|
Guess who finally bought herself a slip dress right when fall's started arriving? I waited until I could snag one for a measly $9 though, that's why!
So yeah, just being economical here. Plus, you can totally style these pretty little things for fall. That's the beauty of this season - layers, layers, and more layers!
Anyway, for this particular day, I didn't need much layering. A simple, floral print, silk jacket paired with booties did the job. For fall, I imagine myself wearing this dress with black tights, boots, and plaid tied around my waist. Ooooh, and a beanie. Guys, I'm ridiculously excited to start breaking out my beanie collection.
You know, this summer has pretty much ended, as far as activities and freedom go. It's been one filled with new friendships, joyful moments, experiencing what it's like to work somewhere I love, and reaffirming my faith. I don't regret a single second of it.
However, there are portions of it I puzzle over and fret about.
Why is it that people are so fickle? How can someone so easily switch a flip from being invested in you and your interests to becoming cold, distant, and having zero interest in you as a human?
I suppose that saying about discovering your true friends rears it's ugly head.
Let's just say I've been disappointed and hurt by the disregard shown to me by a certain someone I thought had an actual interest in me as a person, not just a romantic interest (which I firmly made clear was not an option). I suppose I was wrong though.
It's been a while since I've felt so hurt and upset with another person for this, but really? Am I worth so little value as a human, that I'm not worth the effort of knowing if I don't serve a romantic purpose in your life? It's incredibly revolting just how belittling that is to me.
If there's anything I've learned in my short 20 years of life, it's that people can talk a pretty speech and shower your ears with flowery words till they're blue in the face. However, those lovely promises and words can quickly decay into rottenness with their actions in mere seconds.
Don't just talk the talk, walk the walk.
Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness.
