Lager på lager

Lager på lager

Fashion, Life itself

Förra veckan snöade det något så in i helskotta, åtminstone i Stockholm med omnejd, men även här i Skåne fick vi vår första snö för i år. Ett faktum jag inte är alltför lycklig över då jag anser att snö är fint på bild och när man kollar ut genom fönstret, men att vada i snöslask tillhör inte mina favoritsysslor. Däremot är det ett ypperligt tillfälle att klä sig med lager på lager och gosa in sig i mysiga tröjor. Förutom min outfit på bilderna tänker jag däremot inte prata så mycket om just mode, förutom att jag slår ett slag för den härliga mössan från Sätilä of Sweden samt den värmande koftan från Esprit, utan håller mig till just lager.

Jag brukar likna mig själv vid en lök. Ju fler lager av löken du skalar av, desto större är chansen att dina ögon kommer att tåras. Det låter ju inte som den perfekta kontaktannonsen direkt, men jag märker att ju fler lager jag skalar av, desto fler är antalet människor som faller för mig. Vare sig det är på ett djupt eller mer allmängiltigt plan. Detta är självfallet inget problem i sig då det är mycket smickrande, men faktum är att det blir jobbigt om känslan inte är ömsesidig. Jag är glad över att jag har ändrats så mycket som person att fler och fler upptäcker mig för den jag är, det vill säga älskvärd. Däremot så kan det vara väl så jobbigt. Jag är mycket medveten om att jag är en öppen, flörtig och ”fysisk” person. Det vill säga, jag rör på folk, kramar dem ohämmat för att inte tala om kindpussar i rätt sammanhang. Detta är något alla inte gör och jag har förstått att detta kan skapa viss förvirring i vad det egentligen jag är ute efter. Jag kan bara konstatera att det är en del av min personlighet och något jag inte kommer att ändra på. Jag skriver inte detta inlägg för att såra någon, än mindre för att skryta om att jag är älskvärd (vilket jag förvisso är). Jag skriver det för att jag måste få ut det helt enkelt. Är min reaktion mitt eget påfund? Nej. Är jag nöjd med situationen? Nej. Handlar det om mina problem med att släppa någon alltför nära inpå livet? Ja. Så det här är ytterligare en sak jag får bearbeta helt enkelt. Däremot tänker jag inte sluta vara allt det ovannämnda, men jag kommer att sätta tydligare gränser. Den här löken har skalats till den grad att knappt några tårar går att utvinnas ur den längre.

    Ahhh – so glad you missed that snow storm!! It gets crazy here in Reno too, I just hate driving in it but I do love watching it 🙂 I love the analogy you used with the onions, thanks so much for opening up with us and telling us a bit more about yourself. Great read!

    Awww I love how you described your layers almost like an onion! So true and I remember feeling like that all the time. So many layers and you don’t really want to show them to everyone!

    That said, the beanie looks super cute on you! I have such a love/hate relationship with beanies; I think they look SUPER CUTE on and I like them for like 2 minutes and then I just want to rip them off my head haha. But I love this on you and how you styled it with that cardigan!

    I am loving that sweater and beanie on you! In Seattle we rarely get snow, so when we do its a nice treat. I’m always loving how open and honest you are with your readers. Being vulnerable is never easy and I too feel like that onion with many layers! Love the depth you have!

    Keep smiling!

    I’m with you. I’m not a huge fan of the snow…unless it only lasts for a couple of days and doesn’t come back until the following year lol. What a great analogy you made comparing yourself to an onion. It’s never a great idea to open up to everybody, especially being hurt time and time again. Thanks for being an onion for us 🙂

And even though I don’t know all of your layers and will never get there, I still find you super adorable! I love your honesty and your opinions and how you are so true to yourself. xoxo, Christine

    I have to admit that the second I saw the title of this post, I was hoping you were going to talk about how every person has layers. Thanks for making my hopes come to fruition 😉 I love when you open up, but I can also understand how becoming more vulnerable can end in heartbreak (on either end of the relationship). It can be challenging to find where to stop when you’re getting to know someone. Just know that I love all the layers I’ve seen so far (of course, because you’re irresistible hehe).

    We all have many layers. I think you just need to know how much to share and find the right time. You don’t want to completely cut yourself off from others or share wayyy too much from the get-go. Life is about balance and I’m sure you will find it in your relationships. 🙂

    I’ve you told on Instagram how much I loved this outfit, you pretty much look like one of those male models from a J Crew catalog I receive every month. You truly have the best man style! Reading your blog is like reading a story book each time. I have the same issues about opening up myself to others, maybe because I did experience heartbreaks in the past relationships when I was too open and became completely vulnerable. Oh by the way, I never once got teary eyes when I peel/chop onions :).

    This analogy is a good one, though, when you have gotten to that stage where you need a break from giving up so much of yourself only to have it not work out quite as planned, you need a break.

    I SOOOO adore this look on you! So cute Thomas. I love the sweater, the beanie, and the gloves! Love a good layering when I see it. Talking about snow, that sucks that it was the worst in so long but it makes me miss snow thinking about it. Being in California, everything is dry and definitely no snow where I am at haha But I do enjoy the summer weather, so I guess I can’t complain but too much! Bundle up and keep warm babe!

    Love that cable-knit sweater, it looks like such a perfect winter piece. I always love seeing how people dress for cold weather since we don’t really have any of that in LA. Sounds like an epic snowstorm!!

    You seem like such a thoughtful and sincere person. I could see how revealing too much of your true self to people might result in heartbreak. But, there are certainly worse problems to have than being too adorable! 😉

    Thomas I can totally relate to the layers of an onion comparison. I feel like I am like an onion as well. But I have struggled with letting people in because I am such a young worker bee that I forget to make time for relationships. I know that I need to let friends peel back that layer to see the real me. And on another topic, love the layered look perfect for heading back to Sweden, it sounds cold there !

It’s hard for me to trust people and let them in after well, some unfortunate events and relationships haha. Anyway, I’m loving your outfit and it looks perfect for the super cold weather in Sweden! It’s finally starting to cool down some here in LA so hopefully I’ll be able to break out my coats very soon 🙂 xo, sharon

    Awww I am sending you a tight virtual hug, Thomas! You are such a beautiful soul and sad to hear that this has happened to you. I love your honesty and transparency and my only advice to you would be surround yourself with people that do not take advantage of you but appreciate you for who you are and love you for the person you are. And I know its not easy, but don’t let the bad that has happened to you in the past distance yourself from some wonderful relationships and friendships you can find along the way!

    Ah Thomas, I absolutely love this sweater!! It looks so warm and cozy! On a side note, I can relate to where you’re coming from to some degree. I remember that I actually used to compare myself to an onion believe it or not. Ive grown to shield myself with many layers and have grown to have serious trust issues. It’s a learned self defense mechanism because I’m shielding myself from getting hurt again by making it harder for people to get to know me. But with time those who prove patience will take their time to peel back the layers even if it may bring tears.

    I was meaning to get to your blog as soon as I saw the post about it . It sounded so intriguing and I wanted to wait til I had the time to sit down and enjoy it. First of all, I admire the fact that you support local brands and absolutely adore the beanie. I also agree with you about the snow !!!! Except I probably only want it 1 day and that’s Christmas after Santa has carefully delivered presents. I totally identify with you about the onion – the layers and telling too much – it’s made me reflect and not want to really open up again.

    It seems to me that you’ve been hurt a lot… which is awful. But don’t let it affect the way you are, be, or act. Be sad about it, learn from it, get over it. I totally get you, because I got the same with people. I thought they were my friends, but they turned out to be completely different people with completely different agendas. At first you feel hurt, sad, maybe even used. But then you think: ok. Maybe it should be like this, I can learn from it. Sending you all my love <3
