Sister Gypsy // Daily Outfit


"Not all that is gold glitters
Not all those who wander are lost"
~ The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien

Lately I've come to the conclusion that it's better to be alone and be yourself, than be with other and feel judged/unaccepted/etc. Don't get me wrong, I love being with friends, but sometimes I just need to be alone. I need to be able to think and be myself and not worry what others are thinking of me. 

There's a thin line between being there for your friends and not being there for yourself - a very thin line that I often find myself tumbling off. I mean, I want to be there for my friends (Who doesn't?) but if it has a negative effect on me, and is leaving me stressed/frustrated/exhausted all the time then that's not ok. Sometimes I just want someone to think about me, you know?

Anyway, I felt like such a gypsy in this outfit! The earrings reminded me of those big hoops you always see gypsies in the movies wearing, and the scarf also made me think of movie-style gypsy. I don't think I've ever mentioned it on here before, but I used to have (and still do, to some extent) a huge love of gypsies. Not the My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding kind, but like the old fashioned kind in books/movies. I created a whole gypsy culture for a book that never actually got finished, and I've gone to the Bristol Renaissance Faire dressed as a gypsy for four years in a row now. Good times. ♥

  1. You look really pretty. Have I ever mentioned your hair is gorgeous? I'm so jealous! It's beautiful.

    Friendships can be tricky. I know what you mean about needing to be alone. I feel that way sometimes too.

  2. This is a lovely outfit! So pretty and unexpected.

    As wonderful as they can be, sometimes friends can be tough - I've had to take time for myself too.

  3. This outfit is lovely! You should definitely add some yarn hearts to the fence around the baseball field. :)
