It’s been about three months since Selena Gomez last posted on her Instagram account, but the singer has been keeping busy. This month alone, Selena was spotted taking a hike in Malibu with friends and went on a low-key snow tubing group trip, where she subtly paid tribute to her friend, Taylor Swift, by rocking a Reputation Tour hoodie underneath her winter coat.
Her latest sartorial message is even clearer.
While out in Los Angeles with friends, Selena paired an oversized cream knit cardigan with black high-waisted jeans and a white graphic t-shirt that read, “I am grateful for all that is occurring in my life and all that is yet to follow. I push myself because no one else is going to do it for me.”
It seems like Selena has developed a knack for slipping hidden messages into her looks. For the 2018 Met Gala in May, Selena wore a sheer Stuart Vevers for Coach and accessorized with a small Coach clutch that had a message embossed on it. “A woman who fears the Lord is a woman who shall be praised,” read one side of the bag, which referenced the scripture from Proverbs 31:30.
The singer was hospitalized in October due to an extremely low white blood cell count. “Selena has been trying really hard recently to remain focused, and not let her health affect her,” a source told E! at the time. “She has been actively writing new music, and moved to Orange County for a change of pace and a fresh breath of air. Ultimately, with all of her arising health issues, Selena started to feel super overwhelmed.” In September, she announced that she’d be taking a hiatus from social media to “step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given.”
