Monday Moodboard

I’ve been thinking about a way to regularly share some kind of personal update, reflecting the things I’ve been up to as well as the thoughts on my mind, while being inspiring all at the same time. And well, I think the answer is easy enough: moodboards. A moodboard is more than simply copy-pasting the pins from my Pinterest account to my blog, because it requires a selection process that reflects my current interests and – of course – mood. Therefore, it gives me an opportunity to talk a little about my personal life and recent thoughts, while providing you with some good old inspiration at the same time (because snaps taken by yours truly can be found on Instagram already). I’m certainly not the only one publishing these kinds of posts, so I admit I was greatly inspired by Jules’ weekly collages (love reading those). Hope you’ll like it as much as I do, ‘cause I’m planning to make this a regular Monday post.

What’s been on my mind most of all lately is starting on my thesis. I’m annoyed by the fact that I can’t do so because I need to finish some other courses first, especially after watching my fellow students from other universities present their research at a small conference last weekend. It gets me all motivated to — also — fill my days with early morning coffees, books, and a laptop.

On a more fashionable note, it’s almost Summer now and my wardrobe needs some serious updates. I’m planning to fill it with a lot of romantic whites and flared sleeves. I don’t know why I’m craving for this kind of femininity, ‘cause I normally don’t, but trying new things is always a good idea right? There’s a flared-sleeved-blouse-outfit-post being written as we speak (check out a sneak preview here), so I’m working on it haha! Oh, and I’ve decided to grow out the bleach in my hair and go for a longer, fuller, and most importantly, healthier lob to complement my Summer-wardrobe-to-be.

Contrary to these Summer feelings is my desire to create a whole pile of cozy crocheted blankets. I’ve launched the Donna blanket in blue (check my modest ‘shop‘ here) and I’m working on a beige-white one right now. Can’t wait to have it stocked in more of these pretty color combinations, so I’ll feel like I’m running a proper knitwear shop. I’m also working on a knitted blanky in the softest merino wool, so keep an eye in my Insta for future progress pics.

Last but not least: let’s cut out the snaccidents, ‘cause my daddy gave me a new Triangl bikini for a birthday present so shit just got real.

;) Happy Monday! (And make sure to follow my Pinterest account — link below — if you like these inspirational pictures!)

    Mijn maandagmoed zakt me altijd in de schoenen.
    Zeker vandaag, slecht weer, veel regen, vooruitzichten naar een vakantie… Deze week is er echt teveel aan :)
    But I will survive! :)

    X, Eline

      Ik heb altijd alleen zin in de maandag als ik me goed voorbereid heb: zondag even een beautydagje gedaan, spulletjes klaargelegd, studiewerk voorbereid, etc. Maar het komt zelden voor dat dat ook allemaal lukt. Zonde, want het scheelt zoveel gechagarijn, haha! Jij succes morgen, of ben je alweer lekker op vakantie!?
