Facebook has started to remind ourselves of our memories, things shared in the past. I find them funny and lovely – usually the memories are something happy and positive – good moments, that we have wanted to share. But obviously, there are some other things too, things that other people have posted on your profile, posts about people that you have lost and etc.

Today, Facebook reminded me of a guy, that posted on my profile. It was some game, where you needed to post your first impressions of a person on his or her profile. The post said “Beautiful, but quiet”.

As in, I am beautiful, but not good enough – not entertaining enough – certainly not the light of the party. On the comment section we changed a few words and the guy asked me why I was so quiet and I responded with something like ‘it’s always the quiet ones’. What I was trying to say with that, was that I had more on my mind, than what was seen on the outside. What I was desperately trying to signal, was that I was worth getting to know to, but I wasn’t one of those, who let people close easily.

Well – I hardly knew that guy and remembering that time, I was hanging out with friends, that I am no longer in contact with.

But I still sometimes hear that accusation. Being quiet – there must be something wrong with me? Am I not happy?

And there lays the mistake – thinking, that only people, who are constantly talking, laughing and smiling are happy. People, who make friends easily and socialize around. People who let it be known, let it be heard.

To be honest, I’m not really sure why I started to write about this subject in the first place. I’m not sure, if I know what I really want to say with it. But what I do know, is that there is a certain peace in knowing yourself, knowing your worth and appreciating your life. That peace creates a happy feeling, that doesn’t only show on your lips, but feels all the way in your feet.

Sometimes all you need is to not to talk with people, but to simply know that they are there.

And if it looks like it’s beautiful, but quiet – so be it. I was never about much noise anyway.

You know it’s spring when bloggers are already taking photos with their light jackets open, flowers on their hands. No, but seriously though: I can almost get away with just this beautiful trench on. Almost. And I love flowers, whatever the season.

I feel like this is the most exciting time of the year. People seem happier, the world looks prettier and the sun seems to remember Finland again and there are so many things I’m waiting for, such as:

  1. Sunshine on our balcony. Or just being able to chill on our balcony – it’s still too freezing too even take the Christmas lights out (luckily our neighbors have theirs on too).
  2. Picnics. Food just tastes so much better when it’s served on a paper platter or straight from the jar (let’s face it: I’m just gonna buy my picnic food from the store and pretend like I made my own snacks).
  3. Grilling. Okay, it’s almost like a picnic, but a tiny bit better. Risto even bought us a new grill last year which is quite awesome. (Every Summer I start this diet, it’s called ‘Chorizo soy sausage diet’.)
  4. And obviously: Being able to go out in a light jacket. Another great way of losing weight, am I right? (Talking about those enormous winter jackets that save lives, but also are the most annoying thing right now.)

I loved taking these pictures and getting some outfit photos on my blog! Now that I feel more comfortable with my style I’d love to share more of my looks. I’ve been doing that on Instagram, but maybe this blog is ready for them too? This outfit is a great example of my style: casual and simple. Black jeans paired with a black shirt and simple details. I like to spice up my style with my makeup and here I used a bright pink lipstick (featured on my February favorites) to bring some color to the outfit.

My earrings are a gift from Hopea-Puro, a Finnish jewellery company. They make unique and beautiful pieces such as these ones.
