PUMPKIN PATCHED

IN LACE
F21 lace top, Levi's Made & Crafted boyfriend jeans, Jeffrey Campbell boots, sunglasses from Afterlife, Zara hat, Casio watch
October is one of my favorite months and it definitely flew by this time around. I can't believe it's already Halloween! In an attempt to get the most out of Halloween I visited the pumpkin patch last weekend in Ardenwood Farm in Fremont, CA. In an effort to stay comfortable and protected from the sun, I threw on the most comfortable pair of denim and boots in my closet and the largest pair of sunglasses I own. Lace tops are also super breathable which served as the perfect compliment to my outfit. Although my outfit doesn't scream Halloween, I'm definitely excited about my Halloween costume tonight ;) What are you all dressing up as?

A DAY IN JEONJU

SOUTH KOREA
F21 blouse,  Zara skirt, Toms leather espadrilles
I took the train to Jeonju, South Korea the day after Chuseok to visit my Dad's side of the family. Although I love Seoul, it was refreshing to visit a town where you could see history all around and old traditional customs taking place. I especially appreciated the architecture and fashion at Hanok Village. There were so many Koreans dressed in hanboks with hair so flawless you couldn't help but politely stare. My particular visit was also especially memorable because my relatives welcomed me and my boyfriend in with welcome arms. Although my boyfriend couldn't communicate with them it was heartwarming to see how Koreans always show their gratitude through generosity, mannerism, and of course food. Jeonju definitely imprinted a nice feeling in my heart and was one of the highlights of my short trip to Korea.
Jeonju Station, so beautiful
Was in love with all the architecture and detailing at Hanok Village

While my petite frame was able to fit everywhere quite nicely, my boyfriend had quite the opposite experience haha

While leaving Hanok Village, happened to capture this beautiful scenery and trail


Until next time!

CHUSEOK IN SOUTH KOREA

EVERYTHING'S CLOSED
Lou & Grey dress, Baggu backpack, Balenciaga sunglasses, Chuck Taylor Converse sneakers
I recently got back from an 18-day trip all around South Korea and Japan and finally recovered from jet lag gaining the energy to blog. Ironically we planned the trip so early in advance that it didn't occur to us that we were traveling during Chuseok (추석) Korea's 3-day Thanksgiving holiday. Of the 4 days we were there, 2 days were spent wandering the empty streets of Seoul feeling as if we were survivors of a zombie apocalypse. Almost everything was closed and there were barely any people on the streets which accredited itself for some awesome pictures but for a very restricted travel experience. Despite many businesses being closed we did manage to find some awesome spots open such as Anthracite coffee and many beautiful site destinations. Click below to see more.
