blazer: Ted Baker via MMV outlet • top: Zara • jeans: Vero Moda • handbag: Carpisa • sandals: via Torfs
This blazer, my friends. Never had I thought I'd be crazy enough to stalk a piece of clothing, but I did for this one. I first saw this blue bad boy when Kenneth and I went to Maasmechelen Outlet Village last September to buy him a new suit. As you guys might know, I have a bit of a thing for the color cobalt blue, so I was super bummed that I couldn't afford to buy this jacket at the time. When my mom went to London a few months later, I asked her to look out for it for me. No luck. When boxing day came, I searched every online retailer in the UK that stocked Ted Baker. No luck. My heart made a little jump when I came a cross a Ted Baker shop in Paris in April, but still... no luck. Then Kenneth graduated in that new suit he bought (he looked so handsome!), and I was still without my jacket. To be fair, I had given up hope and had slowly forgotten about it. That sounds more dramatic than it really was, haha. After his graduation, Kenneth started his first job and needed some dressy shirts and a blazer for in the office, so to The Village we went again (seriously, what is it with boys and only ever shopping in one and the same place?). And there it still was.... my blazer. My love. My precious.
Maybe I should quit style blogging after all, because I'm never taking it off again.
That said, I think I should give each and every one of you a big e-hug for your kind words and wonderful responses to my last post. I almost took it offline again because I feared it might have negative consequences, but you guys were all positive and so encouraging that I let it be. You guys sure know how to strike my chords. I may have cried a little... MAY. Ahum. It did me well to read that I am not the only one who shies away from publicity, advertising and the constant battle for more as a blogger. When I wrote that blog post, all I could see was how every blogger around me only seemed to care about PR and blog growth and it just didn't feel right anymore. I needed to vent, and am really thankful for having you all as my friends here to listen and respond. Maybe I shouldn't just tell Ted Baker how much I love him, but share my feelings with you as well, because truly guys:
I LOVE YOU
