Currently going through a major style transition where all I want to wear is black. Maybe it's the aftermath of years of experimenting with every single style out there, and realizing black is the answer after all. I went from awkward, to quirky, to uber girly, to hipster, and now just black. 

Aside from realizing how much my style has changed, I've also had a lot of alone time since I came back to Montreal to think about how much I've changed as a person. I don't know if it's for the better or worse, but I've definitely changed. I'm not going to go deep into a self-reflection here, but I think it's important to take a pause from the daily routine to take time to think about goals and make sure you're living in a way that has a purpose (whatever that purpose is). School is starting in a few days, so I've been spoiling myself with sleep, internet trolling, and mind lolling.

I really fell in love with this skirt because of its fun peplum at the bottom and the neoprene fabric. It literally bounces with each step, but it is already becoming one of those pieces that will probably be sitting in my closet without seeing much sunlight. Sometimes, impulse buying takes the better of you.  

Confessions of a shopaholic.

My style has always been on the girly side, and I still have those days when I just feel the need to express it with a pink skirt and ruffly top. These shots were taken while I was hanging out with Yuna, who is a fashion blogger in Korea. We had a cute little lunch date on my favorite street in Seoul, called Garosu-gil. People call it the "soho of Seoul" since it is known for unique shopping boutiques and trendy restaurants. I love the vibe of this street because everyone dresses so well here, and there are so many street style bloggers roaming around to take snaps for their blog. 

So I think all of you can recognize that my bag is a replica of the Mansur Gavriel bucket bag, the IT bag of the moment. It's crazy how this freaking bag is sold out every freaking where!!! I found the one i'm carrying at a super random boutique, and paid only 20,000 won for it which is like $20. SCORE! But sadly, the strap broke after two weeks... I think my camera was way too heavy for this little guy. I guess you get what you pay for, right?

Presently, I am back in my own apartment in good ol' Montreal. I know it seems like I am always writing a blog post in a totally different city/continent then where I took the pictures. I have two weeks of summer vacation left, so I plan on using it as wisely as possible: sleeping, eating, and you tubing.

First outfit post from Korea starts with a classic look that literally never fails: a white shirt paired with blue denim. It's crazy to think that these pictures were taken a whole entire month ago... I met up with Michelle, who is a friend of a friend and also a blogger/youtuber! It was our first time meeting in person, but it felt like we already knew each other because we always watch each other's videos and what not. Anyways, to sum up our day, we ate pasta a Urban Sheriff, had dessert at my FAVORITE strawberry bingo place called "Peony," and shopped around Hongdae

PRESENTLY: I am writing this post at my parent's house in the States, which I will be staying for just a little bit before heading back up to Montreal. I've probably said this about ten thousand times now, but this summer has just been a whirlwind. I want to take time to reflect on my trip to Korea, so the following paragraph is mainly for my own diary/blog purposes of recording moments that are now just memories. Feel free to read if you are intrigued enough. 

Since middle school, I went to Korea every summer to see family and such. I'm so thankful to be able to go back every year to where I was born. Even though I've never really lived there, (my immigrated when I was three) I feel a deep attachment to my country of origin. Every summer is similar in many ways: I stay at my grandmother's house, I see my cousins and relatives, I have lunch with my mom's close friends, and I make sure I hit my favorite shopping areas. But this summer was different in so many ways too. First off, I was much, MUCH more independent this time around. Having never gone to school in Korea, I don't have many korean friends, so I used to get really bored when I was younger because all I would do is follow my mom around. But now, my Korean friends that I met in each city I lived in (both US and Canada) came to visit Seoul as well, so it was amazing to be able to reunite with people I haven't seen in many years. It's crazy how I didn't see some of these friends while I lived in the States for years, but we somehow are able to meet up across the world. I grew super close to some of these friends, (i'm sure you would know if you've seen my instagram), and we made memories that we will probably talk about until we are old ajummas. (Korean word for middle aged woman) 

Another big difference this summer was that I turned the legal drinking age in Korea, so I got to experience Korean drinking culture (SOJU, SOJU, SOJU) and nightlife. To say the least, it was pretty crazy. Now that I am back, I am treating my liver to a much needed detox period. All in all, I had such an amazing time in Seoul, but at the same time, I was ready to head back home towards the end of the month-long stay. Now that I got all the partying/being super lazy out of my system, I feel reenergized and motivated to get back to work. 

Now, I am kind of ranting. BUT, I've also given a lot of thought on what I will do with my blog. Of course, I will keep continuing to post, but I think I am going to gradually focus more on Youtube from now on. Just a side note, hehe. :)

Thank you all for reading, and I hope you are enjoying the last few weeks of summer. <3
