Thank you, 21.

Thank you for making an effort to learn things you never thought you will be expert at. They don't seem so hard, do they?

Thank you for never giving up on things you really love. It is what you want. You know it's worth it.

Thank you for challenging yourself every time you need to. You just want to bring out the best in you.

Thank you for choosing the man you are with now. It's been the best 5 years of my life.

Thank you for sticking around with best friends from 3 different schools, and those best friends outside the school. They remind you how amazing it feels to remain the same whereas you live in another culture.

Thank you for every effort you make to study for better grades.

Thank you for making this blog. Fashion has always been your thing. I wonder why you didn't do it earlier.

Thank you for staying in Germany. It is a country you call home now.

Thank you for being in a school where the people are very kind and friendly.

Thank you for making the right decision, for always trusting your gut, because i have never been happier before.

Thank you for loving yourself, everyday.

Monday Look: Mom Jeans

Happy First Day of May! Time flies so fast, can you tell? I am so excited though because i absolutely love this month. It is my favorite month of the year because birthdays of my favorite people are in May – my man's, my sister's, and my bestfriend's! I feel like i am more related to people who was born in May because they are darlings! so grateful to have them in my life and get the chance to share the same birthday month. It's indeed an endless happy feeling happening every day the whole month!

It has been a long weekend for us because my man and i take extra 2 days off work. We would like to celebrate my birthday together and he has been preparing for it since. I keep myself busy with Pinterest when it comes to inspiration and since he wants to do some DIYs for me, he had to download it himself on his own phone, which i extremely hard to imagine because i have never seen him doing some DIYs before and instead buy things at stores. We usually celebrate the birthdays outside the whole day rather than at home and have a dinner at a restaurant because he had to work abroad the last 4 years and we only had several days in a month together. It was practical at the moment because we didn't have to prepare for it (except the birthday presents). But i am really glad he doesn't have to work abroad anymore and spend times everyday together!

Pinterest has been a big part in my creative world because it provides so many inspiration (DUH! i do not think i have to explain why?!) Since he discovered this platform, he keeps showing me some funny pics and beautiful places to visit. I always have to laugh when he gets email newsletter from Pinterest because of the suggestions that based on what he searches there (and now it is torte recipe, which has to be a surprise for me) because it is so sweet of him that he makes some effort for my birthday. It reminds me of how excited i also am the first time i discovered Pinterest and i can't imagine not to use it as a blogger! I get tons of inspiration there when it comes to new ideas for my Monday Look, for example how to pair this mom jeans. I have been looking for the perfect one and my man got me this for a birthday present and i am so happy about it! This jeans is wonderful to show off the waist by tucking tops into the high-waist jeans, belt it and toughen it up with some killer heels and baker boy cap. This is also one of my favorite looks! What do you think?

What do you think about Pinterest? And which clothing items you like better to match to mom jeans? I hope you have a great start into the week!

Monday Look: Striped Trousers

After a relaxed week of Easter holiday, i am ready to go back to work again this week. It is a tradition that we spend the general holidays together as a big family. As we move to another city, seeing each other becomes more special because we cannot go back there more often due to our jobs here. So, last week we visited my man's parents in his hometown and it was nice to be there again. I lived there for almost 2 years before and it feels like coming back home. The city is more quite than here and i kinda miss it. It is crazy when you think you are a city person and you need the tranquility all the same time.

But not only that, i am glad to meet his parents again. We hadn't been there since new years eve and it felt like forever! We usually visit them almost every weekend and suddenly we gotta wait for months! The celebration was lovely after all. It began with having coffee in the afternoon, and then have a dinner and play cards until midnight, which i get a real kick of. Especially when you win the game despite the fact that my man and his dad are really good opponents!

Last week we only stayed at home spending time together. The weather was not really good the whole week and even snow fell for 2 days! It was pretty funny because i have already cleaned out my closet for spring one day before the snowstorm! Haha! But i just checked the weather forecast and i do not think it is getting better until the middle of May. I was hoping that i could celebrate my birthday in the sun but i think it remains a dream this year.

Because of the bad weather we were not really outside the house. Yesterday we decided to went out and get some cakes but it was terribly windy on the way! For me, a casual weekend outfit like this is silk trousers (like this striped one) and a wool t-shirt on colder days in spring. I matched the t-shirt with this cute layered necklace and leather jacket. I saw this pants at H&M store and i fell in love! It is so 80's and i am loving the outfit at the moment. What do you think?

How was your Easter holiday? Do you have any traditions you always do on holiday? Please tell me your story! You know i love to hear it! Have a lovely day!
