They told me I could be anything...

... so I became a galaxy.

If you haven't already figured this out: I'm crazy about prints. But galaxy print is probably my favorite print in the whole wide world. I know I wore these pants in my last post too but I thought that this outfit was absolute cosmological perfection and one can never wear awesome pants like these enough. I like a good floral or stripey piece as much as the next girl but since I'm a Carl Sagan geek and want one of his philosophical quotes tattooed on me somewhere in the future I have an extra special place in my heart for spacey prints. When I look up at night and see the all those tiny stars in the big black sky I can't help but feel a little calmer. It helps me realise that, even when humanity screws up big time, the universe won't cease to exist because of our petty mistakes. Whatever problems I have, they fall into complete nothingness when I look at the size of the cosmos. It helps me put things in perspective and renew my respect for the life I have. As do Carl Sagan quotes, let me share some of my favorites with you.

"Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known."

"For small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through love."

"Everyone of us is, in the cosmic perspective, precious. If a human disagrees with you, let him/her live. In a hundred billion galaxies, you will not find another."

"We are like butterflies who flutter for a day and think it is forever."

"We make our world significant by the courage of our questions and the depth of our answers."

I think these two are my absolute favorites:

"I don't know where I'm going, but I'm on my way" (previously featured in this post)

"But I could be wrong."

Getting older, learning and changing is scary in some ways. Okay, in a LOT of ways. But realising that you really don't have the answer to everything and that you're probably wrong about a lot of things all the time is actually a relief to me. I'd rather be wrong a million times and learn something every single time than to be right and never learn at all. Though being wrong all the time wouldn't be the best thing either. YOU GET MY POINT.

If these pictures look EXTRA nifty, by the way, it's because they are. I made them with my new lens, 50mm 1.4, a lovely birthday present from myself. I love it with all my heart. The adorable sequined hat was a gift from a friend, I have the nicest friends <3. They give presents like bosses. Just one more day of school for me and then I have my 2 week break of holidays! I'm looking forward to christmas, sleeping in (FINALLY) and finding time to waste some time again. DRAWING. READING. VIDEOGAMES. Aaaah, holidays, you  came just in time.

Hope you lovelies have a good weekend and if I don't talk to you before christmas: Merry christmassssss! Oh and happy end of the world day for the 21st of december!

  1. hahaha ik zag de foto's en ik dacht amagad ze zijn nog mooier dan normaal en ik wist niet eens dat ze met de nieuwe lens waren, je ziet zo'n verschil!

  2. I was just talking about Carl Sagan yesterday and saying how much I Iove that we are made of star parts! You look like a galaxy of pinks and blues I bet everyone smiled who saw you in this! Life is about learning from our mistakes and not repeating the same crap that dosen't work over and over again. To live is to learn and best of all to love!

  3. Gosh this outfit feels so YOU :) you look gorgeous in it and I love the quotes. I think I also remember another quote by Carl Sagan that you featured in another post: "we are all starstuff", you got it "temporarily tattooed" on your forearm if I remember correctly.

  4. Love those pants!!! On another note.... I do not know how I have been reading your and your sisters blog for at least a year, and never realized that you were related! Ugh! I may need to get my glasses readjusted!

  8. This outfit is fucking amazing, so much so that I'm f'bombing your Universe. I love looking up at the night sky, I really need to spend more time outdoors, I tend to be one of those indoor gals but I do however love the night (I made a really creepy face when I said I typed "I love the night"). Happy belated Birthday!!
