Laurel Pantin & Her PS11

I really like the light shades of colors used here in Laurel Pantin‘s outfit. I have only met her once, and my impression was that she is a very nice and kind person, and her outfit here to me represents that. Her PS11 brown leather bag is a nice touch that adds a focal point to her outfit, and gives it that special touch. The shot perfectly captures her kind and lively expression, and the wind blowing the hem of her skirt [or dress]. ♥

We discussed about various celebrities, and the overall body image they radiate. It was very interesting sitting around the table talking with other girls who are around my age, and learning their view points regarding certain celebrities; also regarding what counts for a healthy body image and what goes in the ‘gross’ category. I got the opportunity to broaden my viewpoints.
