Keeping It Cool in Neutral


On another hot and humid day in Seoul, Korea, I chose a cropped top that I picked up from Zara and originally planned on wearing this little number with a striped maxi skirt since I like to balance things out (short + long) but it was just too hot to wear something long. Instead, I borrowed these linen shorts that Chriselle had just bought to keep things cool.

We hung out in Garosu-gil which means a tree lined street. This street is also in Gangnam (yes just like Psy’s song) and has the cutest shops and eateries. We came here several times just to eat at our favorite shaved ice cream place called ‘Add Bing.’ If you’re planning on visiting Seoul, I highly recommend visiting this area as it’s so pretty.

I’m so glad I packed these Isabel Marant sandals. These were my go to sandals in Korea since they happen to go with almost everything and the small chunky heels add a little bit of height yet they are still comfortable enough to walk around.
