One way to go (ootd)

August 12, 2013


First of all, from now on, I'll be marking my outfit posts with an outfit of the day abbreviation which hopefully makes it a little more easy to notice. Now onto the outfit. This is what I wore to go to a movie (the Wolverine) Saturday and a party afterwards. I'm finding myself looking for a little more edgy pieces in my closet or at least a combination of something that at least comes of with a twist. I think I have my fases with those kind of things. There are days I want to put on a lace dress with kneehighs, days I want to wear sweatpants and sneakers in public and days where I want to look a little more tomboyish.

Anyway, I've had these jeans for about three years and haven't worn them in about a year. I am so glad I never got rid of them, I'm suddenly obsessed with them again. The top and bag are from the US, you'll see it soon enough in a shoplog. I told you about those awesome Coach bags, right? Well this was the first one! Nick doesn't like it that much but I do though. His mom wanted to buy it from me but I couldn't let go of it anymore haha. In the evening though, someone spilled a Coke over it and I don't really know how to get the stains out.. I'm pretty sure my grandma will though!


jeans: Dept Denim | top: Urban Outfitters | earrings: ebay + H&M | shoes: Ken | hoodie: H&M | bag: (thrifted) Coach

As a last note, I wanted to adress why I've been posting so little. I've been struggling for the past week with what to do with this little space. I was kind of bummed my video didn't receive the positive comments I was hoping for and I had to really get in touch with why I started blogging in the first place. I felt so ridiculous just thinking about "why don't people like my blog/video" because honestly, I blog because I've loved it from almost the moment I started. And I kind of forgot! It doesn't matter how many comments or followers I get (I'm not saying it's not fun though) because I want this to be me. And it is. I am lazy sometimes, which shows. I like shopping, so I have shoplogs. I am awkward, kind of geeky and no professional. But that's ok, because that's all me. So no apologies anymore and no more ridiculous thoughts. I'm not shying away anymore from anything I want to post about because I think it won't be appreciated. I hope (well, think)  you'll understand! I do want to thank all of you for reading and supporting me, it has been the best.

  2. Beautiful! I love your outfit, and those earrings are so sweet! fyi, I was super excited to watch your movie, and did watch part of it, but am waiting for the english version to go up, haha! So don't think I'm not excited! (is it up yet? ...I'll go check :)
    I definitely get discouraged when I don't get comments as well, thinking why do I do this?

    1. Hahaha, this was actually kind of awesome! :p It's fun to know I 'know' you well enough that's probably you posting with your husbands account without you telling me, pretty sweet! :) And yep, it can get a little discouraging but I hope I'll be able to refocus my thoughts when I'm thinking something like that again.

      Oh and by the way, you should be able to put on English subtitles in a little tab at the bottom!

    1. Thank you so much!
      (There's not really an English version by the way, but you can put on English subtitles in a tab at the bottom of the video.)

  6. Very cute outfit. I really like the location you chose for the photos. Blogging has got to be something you LOVE to do. If you start to obsess over stats, views and comments it can become something you don't enjoy anymore. I've taken a huge step back from my blog. It's felt great really. I don't spend a million hours on my computer anymore! Just keep being you and your true followers will never go anywhere. :) (I will watch your video later, I have to get ready for work! Boo!)
