When life hands you lemons, you wear your favorite pieces

sweater: J.Crew • jeans: Gap 1969 • tank top: H&M • crossbody bag: Kate Spade • heels: Cypres • ring: Twice as Nice

Today is the last day of Spring Break. I didn’t have any chocolate on Easter. We’re back home from a weekend away in Paris. I have no dress to wear to my formal dance this Friday. I have to give a presentation about the partitioning model in organizational sociology this week. We didn’t get my birthday outfit shot in time. I already wore 90% of this outfit in a previous post. First world problems, I had my share of them this week.

The past few weeks have been rather exhausting for me (as I’ve told you a million times by now) hence my unforgivable blogging behavior. I’m hopelessly behind on my Bloglovin’ list and have no idea how I’m going to catch up. So first things first, thank you guys for sticking around and reading still while I’m trying to keep my head above the never-ending flow of papers, syllabus and Class’ex full of notes. I’ve been debating putting The Ginger Diaries on hold one more time, but blogs don’t survive two months without being nourished. And after my break in February, I know that I do not want to stop this fun adventure yet! Just two more months to go, and then I’ll (hopefully) have oceans of time to fix things.

On a brighter note: It’s my birthday this week, we’re going to Nando’s and mom bought me the cutest new shoes to celebrate the ending of my 22nd year on this planet. I had hoped to get a fun photoshoot up on the blog Thursday, when I turn 22, but due to colder weather, no helium balloons, no new dress and no available photographer it sort of all fell into the water. I will have to come up with something new now! This week there are also a few blogging events, but I’m still unsure whether I’ll make it or not. As you could read in my last post, I’ve been having so much fun meeting up with fellow bloggers the past few weeks and I’d love to continue the good vibes. Hopefully you guys are looking at a good week too. See you on Thursday!

      We WERE coming, but that fell into the water too! We had planned a roadtrip between SF and LA. Not nearly Kansas City, but still 😉 xo

    Die top vind ik echt zo mooi! De laatste foto is trouwens super cute 🙂 Laat je zeker niet kisten door de drukte, bij mij is het ook altijd druk. Het lukt je wel! Jamer dat je B-day shoot in het water gevallen is, das best vervelend als je zoiets leuks plant en het dan niet wil lukken. Ik wens je in ieder geval al een dikke proficiat met je verjaardag!

    Leuk shirtje! Ik kan helaas ook niet naar de persdagen dit jaar 🙁 All work and no play! Alvast een super fijne verjaardag!

    Mooie outfit, die broek staat je keigoed! Hopelijk kom ik je deze week nog tegen op een van de events 😉

    It is your blog. Do what you want and on a schedule that works for you. We are all rooting for you to get through this busy time, adn while we miss you, we know it is because you are busy living life.

    Also- this is still a cute outfit, if more laid back.

    I love this outfit! You look so happy, I suppose that happens when you wear all of your favorites. That last pictures is the cutest 🙂 Are you back from Paris now? I’m so jealous!

    I wish you a very very very happy birthday, lovely lady! I love that you can see the happiness in life when issues pop up around you. You look beautiful and I *love* that shirt.

    May your 23rd year be amazing!

    Aww, happy birthday when it arrives!

    I hope that you get lots of chocolate gifts after not eating any chocolate over Easter! Easter is made for chocolate!

    Fingers crossed your workload gets easier too – but blogs always come second, school is much more important. You have your priorities right! 🙂

    Happy almost birthday! Doe je donderdag de persdagen? of gewoon verjaardag vieren 😉 Anders kan ik je in real life een gelukkige verjaardag wensen 😉

    zooo fan van je broek!

  16. 28 April 2014 / 00:09

    This is super cute. Casual but put together, and those jeans look so comfy.

  17. 29 April 2014 / 15:13

    Ik denk dat ik je altijd wel kan omschrijven als “schattig” “lief” en “meisjesachtig”, want wat zie je er toch weer leuk uit 😀 en ook al draag je wat meer casual kleding hier… zie je er alsnog super cute uit xD

    Staat u zo goed, zo’n lengte van broek.
    Ik ben mij nog van geen kwaad bewust want zoals je wrs wel kan merken, sta ik zelf achter met lezen 😀
    Naomi, x

    En we delen dezelfde haarkleur 🙂

    Xx julia
