Light as a feather

October 25, 2012
I have no idea what I'm doing there. But for the sake of honesty...
Let me introduce you to one very pretty dress. With feathers. In the most beautiful colours. Belt included. Ok, that was it! No seriously, I have worn this dress so many times since I got it because it has an awesome fit and I can combine it with a lot of colours. 

Further, I am so freaking excited for this weekend because I'll be getting my first tattoo! I'm not really getting it really right now but I am nervous (in a good way). I can't believe that I'll be having a beautiful piece of art on my arm in two days. And don't worry, I'll share everything ofcourse. (How could I not?)


Also, I had my first test last friday which counts for my final mark. I got 25.5 out of 30 so that's not too bad. I'm really glad because as you may know, I was really demotivated and discouraged these past few weeks. I really enjoy the lessons but university is just such a big change, I don't know if I'll ever get used to it. But this test actually was an eyeopener and I really want to make an effort because I know I want this. And now I only have to believe that I can do this.

Dress with belt, scarf: H&M | Cardigan: JBC | Tights: Veritas | Boots: unknown
So, that's probably all. I'll be back tomorrow with what I received from my lovely letters partner. I'll combine the 'sent' and 'received' part though for the second exchange because I don't want to spam you with snail mail posts, haha. Oh and on another note, motivating monday hasn't been around for two weeks because I didn't feel like it. I'm still finding the best way to do those posts but I'm not going to make myself do them. Maybe I can do one every two weeks? I don't know, I'm just going to do whatever I feel up to. I do think there will be a post on monday though. 

Do you have any weekly series you sometimes don't feel up for? What do you do?

  2. So curious to see what you get, and you look adorable (as always)!

    Honestly, it's your blog and you can do with it whatever you like, if you make yourself stick to a certain schedule it's going to feel forced and it won't be fun for you anymore, the only "scheduled" things I do are, favorite pins (from pinterest) on friday and Etsy shop showcase on monday, which I hadn't done all summer because I didn't feel like it, but now I'm happy to have started it again :)

  3. ah! good luck with your fist tatoo! can't wait to see it and hear all about it! :) I tried doing Friday Finds every week, but I really wasn't in to it;I didn't have that many finds and it felt like scurrying around to quick find some; I say don't do a segment if you're not in to it!

  4. You look so cute. I love the boots. I am trying to find boots right now that look good with tights and dresses. No luck yet. I feel the way you do about weekly posts. It's always hard to tell sometimes if your readers actually like them. I try to just do what I feel like. I like one fashion post a week, one interior design a week and then whatever else works for me. Your blog will always keep changing. :) Just do what you love.
