Lavender Lady.

 Lavender Sweater: c/o Lulu*s.
Black Pleated Skirt, Bow Belt: Forever21.
 Loafers: Thrifted.
Red Hair Bow: American Apparel.
Key Necklace: Gift from my aunt.
Lipstick in MAC's Russian Red.

My grandmother and mom are probably dying that they're related to me with this color combination of red and lavender. I have a theory that there isn't a single color that doesn't go with red though. Still trying to prove that to everyone I know! I'll let you know how that goes, ha. 

Thank you all for all of the words of encouragement on my last post. It really does mean a lot. I think it's so strange that many of you pointed out that a strong characteristic of me is that I am sensitive, and that it definitely contributes to my depression returning. How do you guys know that? I think it's incredible that none of you have ever met me, yet you know probably one of the most defining characteristics about me. I am overly sensitive. I think it's incredible though that through my writing you all have picked up on that trait of me. But instead of viewing it as a weakness like I do, you all see it as a strength. 

Maybe someday I'll see my sensitivity as a strength. Right now it just seems like the worst curse in the world to be so in tune with emotions and thoughts and feelings. I think that it makes me appreciate people and appreciate kindness more though. Especially love, as well. I understand what it's like to feel hurt because I become hurt so easily and can empathize with people; never wanting to do to them what someone has done to me. I hope someday that I can find a person to appreciate my sensitivity and find it beautiful. To show me that it makes a huge and important part of me. It's not something to be ashamed of, but proud of! :)

I'm very excited because I'm actually going home Thursday evening now for spring break! There was a scheduling conflict on Friday morning, so I'm getting picked up earlier instead and should be back in my hometown Thursday evening. So, so excited guys. You really have no idea! It's been around 5-6 weeks since I've been home and I've missed it dearly... ♥ 

Love you all and hope everything is well! 

With much love, Lauren.  

P.S. I know it's an old song (how has it been three years!?) but I've always loved this song + the music video that goes with it. One of my favorites!

Pretty girl! Love those earrings and the lavender looks lovely on you. About being sensitive: I think it can actually be a GOOD thing to be sensitive when dealing with things like mood stabilization, depression, etc. It means you are MUCH more in tune when something doesn't feel right, and can recognize that much quicker and more accurately than someone who is not in tune with themselves. It can be difficult to feel things much more fully than other people, but I think it serves you much better as a creative, thoughtful person to be the way you are.

I've been reading a lot about Introverts/Extroverts, and introverts are high-reactive individuals. That is to say, they feel stronger and are more affected by strong situations. So in a bad situation, they react more strongly than extroverts, and the same goes for good situations. Basically they feel more (are more sensitive to things). So basically, even though we're more sensitive, it's not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, I think it's a great thing to feel strongly about things.

I don't know where I'm going with this, but basically I'm saying you are awesome.

Lauren, when I saw the title of this blog post, I was like - wow! Not only is lavender in the purple family (which - I LOVE PURPLE :)), but back in the late 80s I found a place that made custommade bumper stickers, so I had one made for my wheels that said - I'm not kidding! - LAVENDER LADY :) People never missed finding my brown 2 door Cutlass Supreme even tho it was an "everyone has one" type of car ;)
