Summer linen

Thank you, grandma.

Shout out to grandma.

She bought this entire outfit (sneakers not included) from Seoul. If you have ever visited South Korea in the summer, then you know how unbearable the heat can be. With a week of rain, I’ll expect high levels of humidity in DC in the next few days.

I love these pants because itsĀ linen, making them breezy and light. The color is a mixture of purple and grey undertones, so I paired it with this grey top to make the darker grey hues pop. The detailing on the pocket square makes this plain shirt just that much more unique.

It’s difficult to buy clothes for someone, let alone a granddaughter. What I found is that whenever my family brings apparel from Korea, I usually fall in love with the trendy pieces. Asia fashion is ahead of America’s time; countries such as South Korea and Japan birth the latest trends.

Did you hear the news about Hailey Baldwin for Adidas & JD Sports? The companies deemed her the first style creator noting that she draws inspiration from UK style, “where so many trends originate.” This remains true as well, but sadly I can’t say the same for my home country where we debate dress colors and birth concepts such as Crocs.

In other news, I’m enduring my fourth stye most likely due to post-wedding sickness and high levels of stress. I’m taking an accounting final today, so I figured I would wear some makeup since I went a full week of natural beauty and glasses.
