when you are working a full-time job and a part-time job at the same time, you tend to cherish the weekends so much more! min & i have been going on little adventures whenever we can, and this is our documented trip to paju’s book city. the architecture absolutely blew me away. everything was beyond picturesque.
for spring and summer, dresses like these are essential to any gal on the go’s wardrobe. you throw it on and look miraculously presentable, and can still get away with feeling like you’re in your pyjamas. also, these days i’m really loving my choker necklace i got from a.land. its a velvet strap, with a dangly star and makes me feel like a little kitten, haha. it really does spice up anything from looking too obvious. we might not be those korean couples who wear head to toe matching outfits, but we are wearing the same sneakers in different colours. min got us these minimal shoes that go with everything, on his mini getaway to japan.
already so sleep deprived, and just sacrificed even more precious sleep time so that i could watch a zombie movie (i am legend to be precise). zombies are very relevant right now, considering i am one, and also minimal looks are what im feeling. i think this cream leather jacket still breaks away from the too traditional all black, or solely black and white outfits though. my favorite is the rope detailing on the back of the jacket, and the sweet little flowers on the otherwise conventional white jeans. catch you on the flip side, humans!
sweater, jeans – INES, clutch – miumiu, shoes – vans.
these karen walker sunglasses never get old. flared jeans paired with vans look great, but would be even better with white vans and all white look. ill have to give that a try later.
this long weekend, our initial plans were for a little getaway.. but we ended up staying in seoul. min & i decided that wouldn’t stop us from being on vacation in our own city! the amount of food and drinks and desserts.. *-* our bellies are more than content.
back in canada, seongmins roommate, jinsung, was a chef at a montreal favorite, le local. he just opened up a restaurant along with 3 other buddies who were new york-based chefs. lets just say this was the perfect way to top off our weekend! a true taste of home, and i like that they offer food at all price ranges. plus, its in doota, a shopping mall that showcases all of koreas best designers! all of my rings are from MERCI MAJOLIE. if you order 2+ rings, use the code MAJOLIE20 for 20% off!

in korea, its very common on weekends that people spend all day hanging out and enjoying their down time. this outfit is great with white sneakers for a day time look, but as soon as you throw on a pair of heels, you are ready for a grapefruit beer on a terrace (yes! i tried one this weekend!).i’ve always wanted this pair of prada heels, but on my recent trip to japan, i found this similar pair at bershka. good find B ) the weather is really warming up fast over here – makes me happy !!!! i can’t believe april is already coming to an end!
got a few puzzled looks at why i was taking pictures of the ground – but the #shoeporn at the rare market x vita fede party was too real! lots of valentino, chanel, coliac, etc. i didn’t snap all that i should have.. but here is a taste. if you like these posts about outfit details / pieces, i will continue doing them.
