Red Riding Hood

'With every bar of success, comes a basket with many obstacles' 

Sometimes I feel that it is what makes the stream and flow of things so hard. You win some, you lose some but you've ought to learn how to choose what you want to look at and how you want to deal with it. I think I sound very philosophical, but the tone I'm going for is something more subtle and realistic. Things that you and me face and have to overcome every day. In the past few weeks I've come to realize many things. In fact it is kind of funny how you feel like such a baby and suddenly you turn eighteen and things seem to have changed so much. For the better or the worse? That's for me to decide know? 

Yes, I'm finally eighteen and I felt the need to say this because it is like this funny awkward yet awesome moment in life that you want to treasure forever. I loved my seventeen too much and I have way too many expectations of this year. Well, maybe. Also, I found that I realized the importance of love this birthday. The feeling of being treasured is amazing. The pots and bundles of love that my family (Thank you for the 'SPECIAL' gifts mom, I know you are reading this) and my amazing friends gave me has made my soul so happy and obviously that results in some extreme screaming bouts and deafening of the neighbours. Also, thanks to all you delightful people who remembered and sent greetings et all. How adorable! *Hugs*

Moving on to today's outfit. You know how much I love winter and now that we've reached that phase where we have sudden onsets of icy days contrasted with bursts of heat; I'm always on the look out for the colder days because I have way too many winter clothes and I love them. I love my mufflers, jackets and boots! So this chilly afternoon I pulled on my red winterrrr-y muffler which was such an eye turner let me tell you. I can say for sure that everyone on the road looked at me like I was a Christmas tree. But then again, do I give a damn? Paired it with a flowy skirt and all black makes Sonshu a happy person. 

Outfit details: 
Muffler: Zovi, Wristlet: Zovi, Top: Zara, Skirt: Vintage, Necklace: Birthday gift from Sneh, Bangles/Bracelets: Here and there.

Channeling my inner Red Riding Hood. KThanksBai. 


P.S: It's been a week after the birthday and I'm still ecstatic.
