I've been thinking a lot about relationships lately. In particular the kind of relationships that involve emotions of strong affection for another person. Basically, love. I've never sacrificed much of my time for such relationships, and I have never in my life dated anyone. And because I've never really thought much about it I now find myself in a difficult position. I feel like I don't know how to handle these kinds of new emotions due to my unfamiliarity with them and it's pretty much driving me crazy. Also I haven't quite figured out yet how you know whether you've fallen in love with someone or not. I'm kind of having these conflicting thoughts and I'm not sure what conclusion to draw of everything. My friends keep telling me not to think about it that much and stop over analyzing. 'Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.' I get the idea and all but for some reason in practice it's really hard for me to just do so. I wish my mind wasn't this tricky...but what frustrates me the most is that many of my friends seem to have it so easy when it comes to stuff like this. But I guess it also has something to do with your personality and your way of dealing with things. Anyway, I'm sure many of you have at some point of your life been in the same situation. Any good advice? I'd totally appreciate it and I'd really love to hear about your experiences. Wow, this got deep...I'm gonna stop before making a complete fool of myself. Later on I'll probably regret writing everything publicly like this...


  1. For me also a total love for your jacket.
    & for your blog I love the layout and posts.

  2. I totally understand what you're going through. It's easily said, but super hard to practice. For me, i just believe that things will turn out the way it should. If it's good be happy, but don't be attached to it so much... save a little bit of your heart to yourself.

  3. nice text :)
    and the jacket is great!

  4. Um, let me just say that I love your new jacket! I've been smitten with these kinds of coats recently. I just love them. & in terms of your philosophical situation :) I wish I could give you this amazing advice, but secretly I've been having those same kinds of thoughts. It's all out of curiosity for me. I've never been 'in love' but I wanna know how it feels.

  5. Do, what your heart is telling :) If it says, that you should think about it. do it. This is humanic :)

    Great Jacket by the way :)

  6. Right now I hate myself for not knowing how to speak English correctly.
    Well...(with Google translate)

    You will not be able to stop thinking about that person and your feelings. It's normal. Just try not to bother you too much (studies, sadness, immaturity, etc.).

    How do you know if you're in love? I have no idea, I think it's inexplicable. Or maybe this "you know when it happens" is true. I thought being in love once, but I'm not sure.

    All I have clear is this:
    Do not think with your heart, but his head. And follow your heart, but when your head is in agreement.

    LOVE, A.

    PD: I hope it helps.

  7. wow really, h&m? i love it. great post :) xx

  8. thanks for your comment.
    i really dig your blog, now a follower :)

    in response to your question, i used to be exactly the same. loved being independent and wasn't used to any of these feelings! my friends used to tell me to stop over analysing the situation and just let things happen and in all honesty that's what ended up happening to my surprise.
    i met a lovely boy and couldn't get him out of my mind for months. we've been together some time now :)
    though i'm still confused about what love is.
    i think i've fallen in love because of a feeling, i still can't get him out of my mind, i care for him more than anyone else and i just feel so close. however maybe it's subjective and everyone will have different experiences.

    anyway there's a ramble for you haha, all the best, hope i've been some help!


  9. jacket is goregeous <3 i'm in love with your blog, there's a lot of great photos. followed! ;)

  10. Really cute jacket!

    If you are thinking about the emotion, it's probably not love, if you can't stop thinking of the person, miss them terribly when they are away and everytime you are around them you have all these warm positive feelings, it probably is love, in a nutshell.

  15. you're cute and gorgeous. Love your pictures, very journalistic and narrative. Thank you for being so open about your feelings, I guess you will know the answer when you meet the right guy, if you're questioning your feelings, he may not be the right guy. I'm not a guru, just my thoughts.

    On a lighter note, nice jacket! I like the fur lining.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog by the way.


  16. love that!! Have I told you how much I like your blog?


  17. Gorgeous jacket.

    as for your situation, i'm not sure what to tell you. just breathe and let it happen! xx

  18. I can definitely see why it's your new favorite, I love the 70s feel to it...gorgeous!!
    I think love just really happens. I never knew that I would love my bf the way I do, but just after awhile I knew how much he meant to me. He is always there when I need him, I can tell him anything and I can be me. It's more than love, he really is my best friend.
    I know someday you will find this same person, he is out there for you.

  19. I've been there before, so know exactly how you feel. Over the year I've realized it's all learning experience, and gets better and better. Wish you the best and you have such a great blog :) -akiko


  20. I think love is just happiness because of someone else. It's hard & can make you completely insane, but in the end it should make you feel happy.

    I'm new to your blog but your photos are lovely & I hope you figure out your feelings. I would say though that no one has it easy, it's just that we all do our over thinking in our heads so no one else hears about it.

  21. That jacket looks so cosy !
    Best not to over analyse better to just go with it. I'd rather regret doing something than regret not doing something.

  22. I love the coat, shearling is definitely a favorite trend of mine for fall! Can't wait to see where you go with this, in terms with pairing :) xxAnisa
