Hello from Korea!

Anyeong from Korea and Happy late Thanksgiving! It's super freezing here - I've never been this cold! These past few days have been 20-25°F, and after being spoiled by the warm California weather, I was definitely not ready for this. 

To try and stay warm I packed a lot sweaters, my H&M jacket (here), and my blue J.Crew jacket. Unfortunately the XS petite size doesn't allow for much layering since it's form fitting, so I couldn't really move my arms and shoulders much after layering on a few sweaters. However, it really does help block out the wind. So a note for you ladies who are planning to endure weather below 30°F, get a size up to account for layering. I went on a hunt for a warmer jacket that also fit nicely and ended up finding a long down coat from Uniqlo that was super comfortable and fit perfectly!

On our first day we headed to Gyeong Bok Gung, the main royal palace of the Joseon Dynasty. It was similar to the Forbidden City in Beijing but on a smaller scale. I wish it wasn't so cold as I would of loved to enjoy the picturesque gardens and walkways a bit longer.

Fall Colors and New Haircut

I've been heavily relying on scarves lately, so you won't see a shortage of them anytime soon! We had another weekend of sunny weather, but as always you need some warmth from the unexpected wind around San Francisco. I've been going on a scarf hunt from plaid to neutral toned colors, making sure the right colors match my outfits.

I've been quietly stockpiling boots as well since fall is the perfect time to keep your feet stylishly warm, so I'm excited to share my favorites in upcoming posts. I also finally got a long overdue haircut! I usually like to try different salons and this has been one of my favorites in a long time.

Black Stripes and Royal Blue

First and foremost, I'd like to extend my thoughts and prayers to the victims of the Paris shooting. It makes me sick to my stomach that there are heartless terrorists killing innocent people. What's even scarier is that we don't know if they will ever stop and where they will strike next. Every person has their dreams, their family, and their loved ones. Every life is just as important as our own. I wish they would just stop hurting people!

On a lighter note, it was very windy in San Francisco today. It was a perfect day for my J. Crew royal blue majesty peacoat (here, color sold out in petite size) paired with this white ankle jeans (here) I found at Uniqlo. For most of my basics like tank tops, tee shirts and tights, Uniqlo is usually my go-to since their fit is flattering and doesn't break the bank. I say "ankle jeans", but they don't quite hit my ankles since as I have shorter legs (heh). Instead, it came out to be a perfect length jean which I didn't need to fold or have hemmed. I usually need to wear 28inch inseams or lower for jean/pants depending on the brand. I got some food and makeup on the jeans (I'm clumsy) but there was minimal shrinkage and the stains came out entirely. Overall pretty high quality jeans!

Meet and Greet

It was so great talking to Jean (from at her Meet and Greet at Anthropologie today! Being that it was my first time attending an event like this, I didn't know what to expect and wasn't sure what I would wear. I noticed right when I walked in that I was the only one wearing a lace dress (it was freezing at night), heels and a somewhat bold necklace. But as they always say, it's better to overdress than underdress.

I also clearly had too much champagne as I started to feel a bit nervous and couldn't control my train of thought. She knew right away what brands I was wearing so she definitely has an eye for style - she's absolutely the style guru! I was wearing my first ever royal blue peacoat from J.Crew and we mentioned it received such negative reviews online, but I think the fit is flattering and still has that classy look. Glad she agreed as well! All in all it was a fun experience and hope to see Jean in San Francisco again!

Neutral Colors and Oversized Scarf

Happy November! San Francisco has been getting colder lately, but this weekend the clouds took a break while the sun shone brightly so it was comfortably warm. But because this is San Francisco, you can't leave the house without something to protect you from unexpected chills. It was the perfect weather for an oversized scarf while keeping it cool with a flowy skirt. We strolled around Chinatown for lunch and headed to the Urban Epicurean Festival at Fort Mason.
