1 Wild Child

 “When I am most deeply rooted, I feel the wildest desire to uproot myself.”
― Ana├»s Nin
I dislike to fit in so completely that I no longer know where I end and the other(s) begin.
Female friendships for me are short lived and I'm ok with the experiences I garner during that time frame. It unsettles me to explain why I do certain things, account for every move or get accompanied to every place. I do not enjoy being fussed over, I snap at that, neither do I enjoy having my train of thought interrupted by constant chatter, so that when I find I'm deeply entrapped I uproot myself.
My wildest desire to uproot myself comes when I find myself suddenly listening to and slightly nodding to a subtle back biting or character assassination.
My wildest skirt is the animal print one I have on below. It was two sizes too big, but the prints got me deeply rooted into the thought of having it in my wardrobe, so I got it tailored to 
Dressed it up for fall with a sheer tank in a lovely autumnal shade and my fave jacket.
When do you feel your wildest desire to uproot yourself ?

2 Fall Shades::: Orange For Fall

 There are people who live their whole lives on the default settings, never realizing you can customize. ----Robert Brault

Have you ever butted heads with someone who flatly refuses to do things differently than their parents? Heck, long ago, I did get a shock when someone told me using a washing machine meant I was lazy. O_O!
Every time I print mix there is a person who tries to tell me to revert to the plain shirt and printed skirt default. I just smile because trying to explain would only earn me the 'weird' label, not that I haven't earned that already, lol.
I didn't plan this print mixing of orange shades, but I love how it turned out.
So, I braided my hair. It's a big deal because I never do and when I do I go for the simplest style; I just cannot sit for over two-three hours, I will cry, seriously.

3 Flowers for Fall

 Look at us, said the violets blooming at her feet, all last winter we slept in the seeming death but at the right time God awakened us, and here we are to comfort you.
-------Edward Payson Rod

The violets are not blooming at my feet, but on this skirt I made the same way I made this one here. I had wanted to make a DIY skirt for the longest time, but I couldn't find the time and when I did I couldn't find the energy and when I did I couldn't find the enthusiasm. At the end, I created the time, reserved the energy and worked up the enthusiasm with which I settled into the quiet, meditative process of making this pleated skirt and even though it is not perfect I'm taking pleasure in saying that I did it.

I love the violet and lavender floral on the dark background of this fabric. Wore it with this relaxed denim shirt and put some flowers in my hair.
What'd you think?
