Street Style

I have been (really) in the mood for slouchy pants, toned down colors, and menswear (jackets, shoes, gahh!! Hard angles, dream come true).

Figures, it’s not cold enough yet. I will patiently wait, maybe even turn down the A/C at home and lounge in layers and sweaters.

Fall is really really nice (I really need a thesaurus, still) (yes, I know I can go to, and for me (maybe you too?) there is a mysterious, emotional factor. Maybe it’s the thought of cozying up somewhere warm with a cup of cocoa, but it brings about a mood un-encountered in any other season.

So, what’s the mood of Fall 2010? Pulling my Heart Strings is close. Lately a lot of people around me are going through a case of the broken heart. I don’t have man-arms to offer nor a penis (or any spare lady-parts for my broken-hearted guy friends)(that means mine aren’t on the market), my time and love will have to do. Is it worth much? Maybe, maybe not, but if I were going through the same now it would be nice to have someone there telling you so-and-so can prick off and eat a bum’s shoe dipped in tar.

Young as I was, a couple of years ago I came to accept that I wouldn’t find love for a long time—if ever—and I was completely content with a free life (independent ladies, do you hear me?). While some of my friends wanted a warm body next to theirs at night, I contently spread myself, a limb in each corner, along with four pillows in my very comfortable full size bed. Dates were nice, but I liked me time. I had given too much of myself to ~love (yeah, right), and had given enough!

Then, I met Trey. Now, in a mere two weeks we are going to be one year old. It’s surprising to me that I should have found him at this point in my life. It took months, but once we started dating I slowly learned how to share and open up to another person again. And compromise (that’s an important one). I’m not saying he would never drop my heart in acid like some other ones, but I am fairly certain that even if things don’t work out the way I want them to we will still find happiness. It’s a matter of having the right disposition, good friends, and a passion. If ever you place your dreams on anyone, let it be you and nobody else, but regardless don’t give up on love if it is something you want from life.

With that said, I love my friends and my boyfriend, naive as that may sound. Cheers!
