Change

Crochet Poncho: Kensie Girl; CAmi: H&M; Jeans: BCBG; Hat: Nine West; Shoes: Inc.International Concepts; Necklace: Francesca's Collections; Purse: Gucci
There was something about summer that felt stagnant. Maybe it was the heat. Maybe it was the mundane. But for whatever reason, it felt like the days rolled together and the sun never set.  Summer left me feeling thirsty and tired as the road I wandered aimlessly turned to sand.
As October rushed in without warning, I'm happy to say goodbye; to lock it up with a key, and look to new beginnings.  With a new season, comes new change.  Not only in the earth around us, as the weather cools down, and the leaves slowly change.  But also in ourselves, as we change colors, and shed some leaves of our own.
