This photographic print dress is so pretty, isn't it? Fall and spring are my two favorite seasons (I guess I love the equinoxes?), and I think both of them make for really stunning fashion inspiration; after all, they represent the most colorful times of the year! The only problem with this dress (well, other than the fact that it's a bit too small for me right now) is that I don't feel right wearing it during other seasons -- it just seems out of place! So it stays in my closet from December through August. But it's easy to justify keeping it because it's so beautiful.
I still can hardly believe that it's November. These past few months have gone by really quickly, and the holidays are going to be here before we know it. I wasn't really ready before, but now I'm kind of looking forward to them. Our holidays are usually pretty quiet and low-key, and that's okay with me right now. I can feel my heart healing; it's gradual, but palpable. I still get nostalgic, and sometimes I'm still sad about what I've lost (especially around the holidays), but I've been finding a lot of joy, too. Being able to focus on the happiness I feel -- and the fact that I can both create and maintain it myself -- is an important step for me. And it lets me know that I'm going to be okay. I last wore this dress on Thanksgiving (see the post here), and though I was still reeling from my breakup, I made a list of all the things for which I was thankful. The list still rings very true (though I have added lots of bullet points to it since), and reminds me that, though my heart may still be hurting, there is still much brightness to treasure. Spring may be a more accepted season for renewal, but perhaps the fall is mine.
