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.

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!

    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!

      Thank you Andrea! Oh yes, my gloomy mood will soon be over, sometimes it just graps you!

    Wow Nancy—your situation really puts things into perspective. We all have bad days, but you certainly have the best reason to go shopping and try to feel better!
    Happy Tuesday and wishing you the best.

    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.

    What a great outfit. I love a good striped dress. The cardi goes so well with it too. Way to rock the athleisure look.

    Nancy, I’m sorry to hear about your disease. I really hope you will find a donor soon! You look lovely, tho. I adore the dress, my friend!
    I hope your day is as beautiful as you are!
    xoxo, Vanessa

    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
