“The reason it hurts so much to separate is because our souls are connected. Maybe they always have been and will be. Maybe we’ve lived a thousand lives before this one and in each of them we’ve found each other. And maybe each time, we’ve been forced apart for the same reasons. That means that this goodbye is both a goodbye for the past ten thousand years and a prelude to what will come.”

I decided to go with an affordable one at Forever 21 in case I ended up not liking them but I have to say, I fell in love. They are so comfortable and with the leopard print, mine go with everything. I am pretty sure I will buy another one very soon. Check out the pictures and let me know your thoughts.
