A Friday in Fall OOTD

This week has been hectic. With a divisive election, nationwide protests, riots, and hatred pervading our communities, things aren’t looking too good. We must stand strong and hope for the best for our nation, because there isn’t much we can do beyond that. This is a democracy; rule of the people, by the people, for the people. If it weren’t for our whispers that meld into roars, America wouldn’t be as established and prosperous as it is today. Don’t ever feel like your voice doesn’t matter. Trust me, it does.

Today’s look is dominated by blue hues, but the photo’s vintage edits give it a somber, warm tone. The photographer was my good friend Laraib Hashmi.

        We’re still here and we’re not going anywhere. Remember, Clinton still won the popular vote by half a million. Also, Trump got less votes than McCain and Romney. He’s not a popular man, even among his own party. I know it’s scary, but you will have a lot of kind people who care about you and want to see you happy and prosperous. Just keep your wits sharp and your head high.


      2. Thank you for the reassuring words. I feel like it may not be that bad because he is changing his policies gradually or at least decreasing the severity compared to what he claimed to do before he was elected. But I think the elevated hate crimes is what is getting to me.

    Lovely pics! In case you didn’t know it, the election was decided by the Electoral College, Trump lost the popular vote of the people. Hoping to make the electoral vote a thing of the past.
