busy days call for simplicity.


And simplicity is so hard for me… More than half of my closet is full with kind of statement pieces…

But anyway, that’s not what I wanted to imply with that title.
A whole week without a post… I really thought I could handle blogging and working full-time well and it really seemed to work – until last week started. I haven’t been home before 10PM once – and that really had me question my priorities in life.

In terms of what I want to do in life, my No.1 priority had always been my art and I count my blog towards that, so this week really hit me hard. I’m still  trying to figure out how to change things, though – if everything goes well – I have one big change planned from next Spring! Anyway, until then I have to get up my bum and make some time for the things I like to do.


Anyway, besides not having enough time to prepare posts during the week, I still had a little time on the weekend to take #ootd’s! And this one is exactly one week old from last Saturday! It feels kind of weird to look at the pictures now, because I didn’t even need a coat last week, but today was just so freakishly cold, I wore a layer of Uniqlo heat tech beneath my clothes!

This is my favorite sweater dress by Maison Scotch! It’s sadly a little rare to find Scotch & Soda items in Japan, but whenever I am back in Hamburg I cannot leave without visiting the Scotch & Soda shop just off Neuer Wall. And I think I love it so much, because it’s one of the easiest pieces I own. It looks good as a mini sweater dress, or with trousers as a long pullover. And I just love the stitching on the shoulders ♥

    We are so on the same page here. When I lived in the states (read: my mom’s house), I was able to work full-time and still devote about 15 hours a week to blogging, but only because I wasn’t cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, etc. Now that I’ve moved out, I have to be a grown up and I’m lucky if I have 2 hours a week to devote to blogging! I, too, find myself posting photos that I took weeks earlier (you can always tell by my nails if I’m posting in chronological order or not)!
