odd

It’s been ever so summery in California this winter, so I thought I’d throw on a beanie just for pretend.  I know -40 degrees and wind chill aren’t fun, but one usually expects COLD in JANUARY.

These have been my favorite pair of jeans lately.  I’m still gravitating towards skinnies, but the mega cut-outs at the knee make it a little more interesting.  I especially like pairing it with something clean like this popover I got in Korea.

fatigued

This is the outfit I wore on my last day in Korea.  I purchased the pants at Dongdaemun Market.  Anything goes here and vendors sell everything from dried foods to clothing made by independent designers.  Many vendors don’t allow you to try the clothes on which can be frustrating, but you’ll likely consider buying anyway due to the cheap/fair prices.  Also, it’s better to wait until the afternoon to return/exchange items.  Vendors consider early morning returns/exchanges bad luck and won’t be very happy with you!

I don’t own many baggy pants, unless they are drop crotch or boyfriend jeans, but for some reason I was drawn to these slouchy fatigues.  This fit can be unflattering, so I paired it with something slimmer on top to give myself some shape.  Add some awesome headphones and you’ll look like you have mad game.

houndstoothy

I had a ball shopping in Korea.  There is such a plethora of neighborhoods, boutiques and independent designers that it makes it difficult to edit your purchases.  Not to mention that the prices are fair and quality quite good.  I picked up this equestrian cap and houndstoothy skirt at a local boutique and they’ve been my go-to pieces ever since I got back.

Moustache Man and I grabbed a New Year’s Eve lunch at Electric Karma.  It’s the type of place where you sit cross legged on silk pillows, the smell of spices and sounds of Bollywood over powering the senses.
