Lotte world, seriously a korean form of Disneyland. Everyone here has a smile on their face, walking around excited to ride the next ride...except me of course. I absolutely hate rollercoasters. People die on them. They're way too fast and I hate that butterfly feeling one gets when speeding downhill into a drop of death. I do not get the "thrill" others seem to enjoy. However, since I am getting older, I felt that it's only normal to get over your childhood fears. Therefore, yes I rode them. I had mixed emotions. Yes, I felt the thrill, and Yes it was kind of fun, but I don't think I'd volunteer myself to go to Six Flags anytime soon.

The weather was blazing hot. It was humid and my head was hurting from seeing so many cheesy "couple tee's" everywhere. I guess it's a korean thing where you MUST wear matching shirts with your significant other when coming to Lotte world. Some people took it to an extreme. I see grown men walking around in a Rhinestoned YSL t-shirt and bright printed pants that their girlfriends are also really? haha

Since the weather was extra unbearable, I decided to dress somewhat "cool" today. I wore my thrifted Hawaiian print top and paired it with the ever so famous Zara skort. I love how the classy "sleekness" of the skort balances out the super casual vibe the top gives. It makes my top look a little more expensive than what I bought it for, doesn't it?? haha (*I bought this shirt for $3 dollars!) 

Anyways, I'm probably never going to get used to the weather here:( The humidity ruins my hair and makes me look like an old korean lady...aka 아줌마 (Ahjummah).

Boyfriend Jeans and Muscle Tees

Muscle Tee & Boyfriend Jeans from Urban Outfitters//Belt from Goodwill//JC Flatforms from Nordstrom//Studded Purse from DTLA//Michael Kors Watch from Boyfriend//Sunglasses from Raybans

For those of you who don't know, I'm living in Korea for the majority of the summer to A: intern at a marketing company, B: better myself in the language and culture of my ancestors, C: shop til' i drop, and D: come back to the states as an educated mature transformed lady. har har. 
Even though I'll be busy in Korea, I'm definitely going to dedicate time to posting on my blog so you can be updated on my trip here. Yay me. :)

This is the second day of my trip. This day consisted of eating way past the "full" limit of my body, walking around the streets, coffee always, and drinking at night. Drinking here is so casually done here. I guess it's the same in the states as well, but usually I prepare myself for a night's festivities. Here on the other hand, it's dinner, then walking around, then "hey let's get drunk at some chicken restaurant". And then it's some fried chicken and beer along with some hazy memory of what happened. dammit. 

My outfit of the day here centered around being comfortable. The weather here is extremely humid and gross. I hate it. This light graphic muscle tee along with my boyfriend jeans did the trick! I love how these bright orange colored flatforms contrast the simple outfit I have on. These shoes will definitely become a staple in my wardrobe, and lucky me I bought these babies half off. YIPPEE!

June's Gloom

Beanie from Urban Outfitters//Sunglasses from Raybans//Striped Tee from Brandy Melville//Vintage Bomber Jacket is Secondhand//Discopants from American Apparel//Nike Freeruns are gifted//Lips (Hang Up) By Mac

Studying at my apartment ends up being an epic fail. My roommate and I always end up going to either Starbucks, K-town, or Volcao Tea house. We pretend we're like super hipsters studying at cafe's and shit, but in reality, we're just on facebook and sipping on our caffeinated drinks. Because lately, Starbuck's internet has been slacking we decided to go to our usual Volcano Tea House. The internet is great, and it's pretty empty during the day. My roommate and I concluded that when the sun is up this boba house is crawling with the whitest of white people and when the moon rises, Asians magically crowd the area.  
Today's outfit centered around my mood. LAZY AS SHIT. Because my whole outfit was as dark as the sky, I wanted to add a pop of color and my beanie did just that. Mustard yellow is one of my favorite colors...maybe it's because I can literally eat mustard with anything. These disco pants added a certain edge especially paired with my black Nike Frees. I realized wearing running shoes with REAL outfits is like the new thing, and I guess I joined that bandwagon. Who knew gym wear would become the new fad?? 
Shoutout to all the UC students out there. Finals can suck a....(insert word choice here)

Channeling my inner Beetlejuice

Lace Bralette from Urban Outfitters//Skirt from Brandy Melville//Vest is DIY//Michael Kors Watch from Boyfriend//Doc Martens from Online

Wearing monotone colors with a bright lip is something that I lean towards to when I really have no idea what to wear that day. Crawling out of bed and peering out the window, the sky looked sad and gray, so naturally I went to the "black" side of my wardrobe. This striped vest dress ensemble is the remainders of a long sleeve maxi dress. I pretty much altered the bottom and hacked the sleeves off b/c wearing the original dress made me look like a zebra and I ain't about that life. O.o

Feeling Resort-y

Sunglasses from Raybans//Crop tee from Brandy Melville//Resort Skirt from Cotton-on//Lucky Brand Boots//Lips (Media) By Mac

Remember back in the day, when your dad would put on that Hawaiian print button up and you'd just stare at him with your judgmental eyes? You'd think in your head, "Dad, you look so stupid". Well who's the stupid one now? Me. Gosh darnit. 
Resort/Hawaiian prints have become one of my favorite patterns lately, and I tend to buy anything, and I mean ANYTHING that has a cool tropical vibe to it. When my roommate picked up this skirt at Cotton-On, she said she immediately thought I would like it, and therefore what'd I do? I bought it with  no hesitation. Talk about predictable.
I love how this pattern makes any outfit feel, well GOOD. It gives off just the perfect amount of flirty and girly. If you ever find anything remotely tropical like, mail it to me and I'll love you for days.
