Autumn Knocks

This autumn has been a rough one for me so far. I feel like life is determined to knock me down, but I have never been one to give up without a fight. The pics I took for this post were designed to celebrate tenacity and fight.

This first look is all about casual comfort… warm, cozy and perfect for a stroll on a crisp autumn morning. The sweater is from NiNight Creations, the tights are RezIpsa Loc. The boots are Triumph from Gos (which fits the theme nicely) and the hair is a recent release from Truth. I took this pic at Scribbled Hearts, my current favorite place to go wander when I’m sad and need a pick-me-up.

November Walk

This second look features an adorable arm cast from Izzie’s. I’ve thought about buying these for ages, but finally had a reason. The “broken arm” represents the challenges in my life right now… but I will not be broken, and I will not give up or give in. The necklace is from Maxi Gossamer and is called Rejuvenated Stitched Heart, which again felt appropriate.

Can't break my spirit

This sweater and skirt are both recent Sn@tch releases. Perfect for fall, they look cozy and comfy and yet, somehow still elegant and sophisticated. The boots are from Schadenfreude, and can be found at the new round of Collabor88 that just opened yesterday.

Fight Back

Here’s a closeup of those boots! I love the detail work, and you can change it to plain with a hud. I was thinking of this as my “blue mood boots.”

Blue Mood Boots

Life is unfair, brutal and frequently cruel… but I choose to find ways to meet the challenges thrown at me, even when I’d rather give in, curl up in bed and hide under my blankets. Today I was able to channel some of the negative energy through the creative outlet of blogging. It felt good, and it makes me grateful for the discovery of Second Life nearly four years ago.
