Today a more sober outfit that suits the weather in The Netherlands. It is summer, so the calendar tells us, therefore the yellow. But here it is 18 degrees and it’s raining for I do not know how long and it will remain this week too! And my outfit is not the only thing that’s gloomy. Well….

It’s my party, and I cry if I want to!

Last week I went with Gerben to the hospital to see if I already have to be on the transplant list. I am still too ,,good”. Now you might think: so, that’s a good thing right? Yes, but…. the doctor made clear to me that transplanting is to survive. And in The Netherlands the chance that  there is a donor for you is very small, because we have a shortage of donors. And then the risk is also enormous. So at this point it feels a bit like waiting for ….yeah you know. My disease is progressive, I can do nothing to stop it. I can only do my best to make deterioration as slowly as possible. Sometimes it sucks! Don’t worry, this will pass in a few days and then I can deal with everything again and see the beautiful things in my life, as my great partner! So he is the yellow in my outfit! Hahaha.

Let's move back to a less serious topic. The outfit of today! Click To Tweet

In terms of temperature it is quite nice, but it’s so cloudy all day and at the moment I don’t feel like dressing up. Yes, this post gets really nice ! Hahah, oh stop it… But I mean, when you are in a kind of gloomy mood than it is such a waste to put on my new skirt( wich is hanging in the closet for weeks because I could not find the right shoes with it, but now I have), then it feels like you couldn’t be bothered, I don’t know how to express it. Do you know what I mean, I hope so because otherwise it’s me! But for now I pulled this dress off the shelf with a sunny feeling vest. Lately I am very much in love with my Allstars, especially among dresses.  So, and now I am going to pull myself together…and probably go shopping! Have a great day!

  1. I’m sorry the weather is so gloomy and you’ve been feeling down. Grey days certainly don’t help when you are feeling down! I hope you’ll be able to look at the bright side of things soon again!

    I really like your outfit! Even though the base of the dress is black, the yellow REALLY makes it nice and cheery! Very well done!

  2. I absolutely love the yellow color on you. So pretty! And your shoes are so cute. I just wrote a post on how NOT to wear white shoes, but you show how you should wear them. Perfect! And please add my good wishes for your health to all the above.

  3. Hi Nancy! The moment I entered your blog, I IMMEDIATELY notice your Converse and you look Ah. May. ZING in them, can I just say? I’m loving the whole look, especially because you’re also wearing my favourite kind of mustard-y yellow. That dress looks really pretty, I wonder if you’ve already worn the dress on your blog, without anything else on top? I would absolutely wear the dress myself (well, if it were a maxidress, anyway), and I’d pair it with my mustard-y yellow cardi, too!
    I’m sorry to hear about disease, Nancy. I sincerely hope that a donor will come through for you. I have to say, I utterly admire your upbeat attitude and positivity, even with what’s happening – it’s truly admirable. Love and hugs from Malaysia XO

    • Hi Liyana, how lovely to hear from you. Yes, I worn this dress before without a cardigan I believe. With the title,, bodycon dress,,. Thank you for your kind words. That means a great deal for me! 🙂

  4. I love navy and yellow together. Why haven’t I ever put black and yellow together? You gave me some ideas with older outfits I have. Thanks for showing off this gorgeous outfit at my party this morning.

  5. I always love this yellow+black dress on you Nancy. Looks great with the matching cardigan. The weather has been kind of gloomy here too but I hope it gets better for the 4th. Happy 4th of July weekend!

  6. Nancy, I do so hope that your health and donor situation turn around for you soon. Keep those lovely colors going on in your life as they definitely brighten up your outlook! And shopping always brightens up the day, too, doesn’t it?! I am sending lots of love and positive energy out to you, my friend. You look stunning as usual!

    Thanks for linking up On the Edge of the Week. I hope to see you again next Friday.
