From Friends, With Love

How do you feel when you receive an unexpected or even an expected gift from a friend? I am sticking to friends here, exclusively friends. I still remember the joy I felt when my friends gave me something really priceless during my first year in college. Most of it was handmade and hence exclusive and rare. 

As we grow up, we call each other on birthdays and anniversaries and we buy presents mostly when we are invited to a party.

Well, we did not do this a few years back. When I sit alone and think of the closest friends I ever had, I feel like sending them a present. And then I procrastinate thinking its not  their birthday yet. And it never happens.

What I am trying to say here is that, do we need an occasion to send something special to our friends? Not really. There are things we always come across that remind us of someone special. Let us buy that for him or her then. That book on the 3rd rack, that painting, that t-shirt that  made someone a hot property in college, it can be anything.... 

 Not so long ago, I used to complain to God about how I have been receiving less gifts once I grew up. Till I was surrounded with really kind and great friends. What I am wearing in today's post is mostly gifted. Achala and Juree gave the blouse and Neha gave the shorts. What leaves me amazed is the love that comes with these gifts.

Not so long ago, I also used to think that shorts were good as long as they were short enough. That they should be of a certain length and design and that they should be worn with casual tops etc. Not anymore. With Done by None's collection of super cool high waisted shorts, I have come to terms with many new designs and new ways of wearing shorts.

Hope you like the outfit. Please like my Facebook page and to get regular updates, just hover on the right top of a Facebook post from jenny's Bicycle and select 'all updates'. I might not post next Friday as I would be travelling. Have a great weekend!
