MERRY CHRISTMAS

RED AND ALTERED GREEN
How are you all spending Christmas today? My whole Dads side lives in Korea and I only have 1 aunt near me so the holidays are always just spent with my immediate family. I used to be envious growing up, seeing my friends attending family parties but realized its also nice to spend time with the family at home. It also gives me time to get overdue chores done around the house. These pants in example are from 2005 and used to be flared (remember when bellbottoms were everywhere)? I've been meaning to alter them into skinny cargo jeans and finally got around to doing it. The timing fit in nicely with my ability to wear them for a somewhat Christmas inspired outfit. Anyways I hope you all have a wonderful and safe holiday season. Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday Jesus! :)

  20. Are you Korean? I didn't know! My family's situation is pretty much the same, most of my relatives live in Korea so we usually spend our Christmas with just the immediate family members.. Except this year, I spent it with my boyfriend pushing all my chores aside for this coming weekend haha! I hope you have something fun planned for the New Years!

  39. Such great wrist swag, loving the texture on that jumper too! Such a great blog truly, very clean and chic. I've just did a "tutorial" post on the three main ways to work the shoulder bag strap + outerwear style, tell what you think ;)
