Because I'm Happy - Midi Skirt & A Yellow Statement

Being Happy Is A Choice.

So they say. I would mostly agree, having lived a long time with clouds. And whilst it sure as isn't true for every single case - and I don't believe in absolutes anyway - a lot of times being happy is a matter of perspective, of not letting the behaviour of other people getting to you too much, realizing it often hasn't anything to do with you and that life is easier when you don't have too many expectations on how someone else should behave, but trying to be self reliant. All easier said than done, I know. I think children are awesome in that way. My son is kinda always happy and five minutes after something happened, he's forgotten about it.

All that to say that I really love the name "Happiness Boutique" for an online store that sells clothing and jewelry. Remember, I do believe that you should wear and adorn only things that make you happy and discard things that make you feel uncomfortable, frumpy, hide your shine or are attached to not so pleasant memories. And the Happiness Boutique has a large selection of fashion items that could fit the bill for becoming beloved style trinkets.

Since yellow is so big this season, but I have still an adversion against wearing it as tops or scarves, I chose a yellow statement necklace instead. Love how it pops against most of my wardrobe's colors. It arrived wonderfully packaged with little notes attached, as you could see on my Instagram a little while ago.

The top and the skirt I have had since last year already, I actually bought them together to wear it like this. You've seen the top before, but never the skirt on the blog.

Essere felici è una scelta.

Così si dice. Sono anche d'accordo, avendo vissuto a lungo sotto un cielo nuvoloso. Sebbene non sia vero per ogni singolo caso, non credo negli assoluti ad ogni modo, molte volte essere felici è una questione di prospettiva, di non lasciare che il comportamento degli altri ci influenzi troppo, comprendere che spesso non c'è alcun problema e che la vita è più semplice quando non si hanno troppe aspettative su come qualcuno debba comportarsi, semplicemente contando su noi stessi. Più facile a dirsi che a farsi, lo so. Penso che i bambini siano fenomenali in questo senso. Mio figlio è sempre felice e se capita qualcosa di spiacevole, cinque minuti dopo se lo è già dimenticato.

Tutto ciò per dire quanto mi piaccia il nome Happiness Boutique (Boutique della Felicità), nome di un negozio online che vende gioielli ed accessori. Ricordatevi, io credo che dovreste solo indossare cose che vi rendono felici, e scartare quelle altre che sono scomode, vi fanno sentire sciatte, nascondano il vostro splendore o siano collegate a ricordi non particolarmente piacevoli.

Visto che il giallo tira tanto questa stagione, ma visto anche che io ho una particolare avversione nell'indossarlo come top o come sciarpe, ho preferito un bel girocollo importante in questo colore. Adoro come risalti con la maggior parte dei colori del mio guardaroba. È arrivato ben confezionato con piccole note allegate, come potete vedere sul mio Instagram di poco tempo fa.

Il top e la gonna li ho dallo scorso anno, li ho infatti comprati assieme per essere indossati in questo modo. Sul blog ho già mostrato il top, ma la gonna è una novità.

Gluecklichsein ist eine Entscheidung.

So hoert man es zumindest oft. Und als jemand der lange Zeit mit Wolken gelebt hat, wuerde ich dem im Grossen und Ganzen wuerde ich dem auch zustimmen. Auch wenn ich natuerlich weiss, dass das nicht immer zutrifft - glaube auch nicht an Absolutismen - oft genug ist "gluecklich sein" eine Frage der Sichtweise, des nicht Abhaengigseins vom Verhalten anderer, welches eben sehr oft gar nichts mit uns direkt zu tun hat und. Das Leben ist einfacher wenn man nicht zu viele Erwartungen daran hat was andere tun (oder lassen) sondern man fuer sich selbst sorgt. Alles einfacher gesagt als getan, klar. Ich finde Kinder sind in dem Bezug ja Klasse. Mein Sohn ist irgendwie immer gluecklich, und fuenf Minuten nachdem etwas fuer ihn nicht so tolles passiert ist, hat er es auch schon wieder vergessen. Wird eben was anderes gemacht.

All das um Euch zu sagen, dass ich den Namen "Happiness Boutique" fuer eine Online Schmuck- und Klamottenladen toll finde. Ihr erinnert Euch vielleicht daran, das ich der Meinung bin, dass man nur Sachen anziehen (und um sich haben) sollte, die einen gluecklich machen. Und all die Dinge die einem ein Scheissgefuehl vermitteln, oder einen wie Aschenbroedel aussehen lassen, oder die mit unangenehmen Erinnerungen behaftet sind sollte man einfach loswerden, ziehen lassen. Happiness Boutique hat eine grosse Auswahl von Sachen die meiner Meinung nach gute Kandidaten zum Liebhaben sind.

Weil gelb ja momentan so ein bisserl im Trend ist, ich mich aber trotzdem standhaft nicht dazu durchringen kann es als Schal oder Top zu tragen, habe ich mich fuer ein gelbes Statement Necklace entschieden. Finde sehr schoen, dass es sich sehr gut von der Farbpalette meiner sonstigen Garderobe abhebt. Die Halskette ist hier sehr liebevoll verpackt angekommen, was ich ganz toll fand. Ihr habt das vielleicht bei mir auf Instagram gesehen.

Das Top und den Rock habe ich schon seit letztem Jahr. Ich habe die zusammen gekauft um die genau so anzuziehen. Den Rock habt Ihr allerdings bisher noch nicht auf dem Block gesehen, das Top allerdings schon mehrmals.
