The first signs of Spring

Zara jeans // WE cardigan // Hollister top // Six earrings // Nine West flats

I don’t know why it feels like a big surprise, but I am blown away by all your comments, your tweets and that one super sweet email regarding my last post… . I had not expected to receive any feedback. I guess that was my ignorant self speaking, because the responses have been overwhelming. I’m sitting here in my living room, with my laptop on my lap (lap-top, haha) and that infamous coca-cola light commercial is on TV (I don’t think the gardener is that hot, actually) … and, okay… I’ll admit it… I am totally crying. You guys are the best and I can’t even find the right words to say thank you right now. Thank you for sharing your experiences and giving so much great advice. I know I shouldn’t let what happened bother me so much, but I really needed to ventilate somewhere to get a clear mind. Since I can’t find my words today, I’ll copy-paste the post I prepared yesterday. I did promise you a more happy note after all!

It’s here! It’s here! The past two days the weather gods have been kind to us Belgians. With temperatures climbing up to a comfortable 18Β°C (that’s 64Β°F)! I donned my new favorite outfit to dance around in the first rays of sunshine. We had a pretty dark and gloomy winter in Belgium, so I can use a good dose of Vitamin D. Hooray! Spring means that my birthday is coming up soon. Birthdays mean presents, and in a girls’ case: early birthday presents too. Thanks to a co-worker who lives in Newark, New Jersey a pretty little package is on it’s way to my little grabby hands. It’s a little treat to myself after been so down the past weeks. Oooh, I can’t wait! 

PS: I’m not taking of these jeans anymore. Just sayin’. They’re awesome.  And new. Girls love new things, haha.

  • AHH somehow I didn't see your post from yesterday! I would have stopped by otherwise πŸ™
    Im so so so so so sorry to hear about that CRAP they put you through. And all the other things you've gone through in life. No one deserves to feel like that. You are an amazing person and those who don't see it are ridiculous. Keep being yourself, and you will attract the right ones. The people who love you and WANT to be with you. Seriously, I can't believe some people these days. Especially when they're supposed to have GROWN UP by now. UGH it makes me mad.
    Anyways, know that you rock, you look AH-MAZING in those pants, and keep smiling πŸ™‚ You're better than the rest of them anyway.

  • I am very excited for spring (and birthdays!) too!
    Love those pants on you, and your bright yellow!
