The aviator jacket & ponderings


♪ Wild Belle- Another Girl ♪

I can't believe how long I've been holding back from posting these photos! The only reason is that I was hoping not to post these at all because it was a rainy day of spring when I took this and I am STILL waiting for the warm ones but guess's going to snow this weekend! SNOW!  Just when I was just writing my manifesto/farewell to winter...

Oh well, there's another thing which I have been planning to blog about for a long time. It has been over debated , and yet I feel the need to write my thoughts on this as well: 

How come fashion bloggers only highlight the great parts and stories in their life and are more discreet and reserved when it comes to a personal crisis or deception?

First of all, lets remind ourselves that there are a lot of successful fashion bloggers who only write about the outfit they're wearing or simply state the labels. I'm just not that type. I tried to focus only on the fashion aspect for a while, but I feel like there are so many other things you should learn from this blog!
Now, about the main question: Many people say that we usually just want to build a perfect life, and therefore our disappointments are never a subject of discussion, but I would argue that there's more to the story. When you visit the sites you love and you happen to be in an amazing mood, wouldn't you be  a little sad and sympathetic to the issues exposed?  Or when you are sad and see a weeping post wouldn't that discourage you even more? Shouldn't you, as a reader, relax and enjoy the content of a blog in your free time?

Than, there comes another sensitive issue: friends and family usually read your blog and however sad and angry you might be, you shouldn't hurt them by writing an acid post. If you stilll feel like letting it all out, you should write about your concerns in an ambiguous style, maybe include a meaningful quote so that only the person in question can tell.

This is what I feel about blogging when you are angry or extremely dissapointed. It's your blog and you're allowed to express yourself however you feel like. Still, a little diplomacy wouldn't hurt. Who knows, maybe even a post about blogging when you're in a weird mood means that the writer herself is actually hurt and mad *wink wink*.

And now, finally a few words about my outfit: I bought this aviator jacket couple years ago, when it was a huge trend and although I love it, I don't wear it so much because its lenght is impractical.  As for the mint scarf, I know I should look for emerald green and neon yellow in the stores already and that mint is not the IT color anymore, but I love it and that's what really matters! This whole color trend concept means that for a few months you have more options to choose from in a certain shade. It doesn't imply you can't wear that color anymore once a new season settles in!

  7. Great jacket Dear ! love the colour of Your scraft so much <3

  8. very nice......


  9. I just think one should be yourself and blog about things that feel right to this person and not to suit the audience, so people who come to read the blog regularly know what to expect. And the things is there will always be people with certain likes and dislikes, so while it's impossible to please everyone, there will always be readers who like the blog and blogger for what/who they are.
    Personally, I'd rather read stories than look at the photos all the time - the latter bores me.


  10. Very classy!
    Love the color of your scarf, looks amazing with the rest of your outfit!

  11. You're so right. Blogging shouldn't be all about fashion. You can add tidbits of your personal life but be discreet about it. Love your outfit.x

  25. Verry nice look!Thank you for the nice comment on my blog!

  26. Nice jacket! It looks warm!

  27. I really agree with what you wrote: in the beginning of my blog, when it was not known by anyone who knows me in real life, I wanted to write all about how I felt about certain aspects of my life. But of course it found its way into friends and family and then I had to watch my tong, which actually caused me to stop writing about my private life altogether. Nowadays I write very little about it, and when I do it is related to lifestyle.. I don't want to fall on the category of people who are only showing clothes, but at the same time I struggle to find a balance between what's private and what everyone can see. I think the text you wrote is really helpful though =)
