Topshop bonjour bodysuit, American Apparel corduroy skirt, leather bracelet via Taiwan, 
Steve Madden flannel boots, thrifted vintage Coach satchel

Bonjour, or rather au revoir, to California because I will be crossing the oceans and spending my winter break in Korea and Taiwan. Stoked? Beyond. I get goosebumps/butterflies/excited just thinking about what I am about to experience in two months time. I've been contemplating this trip for some time now, never really thinking about it as anything more than a silly daydream, who knew it would become such a sudden reality. Booking the tickets made me feel uneasy, a little unsettle, and undeniably excited to take on such a culture shock, to push my boundaries, to embrace something completely and utterly new. 8 1/2 days in Korea with my best friend and then 8 1/2 days in Taiwan with family and friends, ohh I can hardly wait! 60 days and counting...

It was bound to happen, after spending my whole summer working with babies, I had to experience a onsie for myself and I could not pass up such a cute one from Topshop. Bonjour? Oui oui! No one can resist saying hello now...literally. Not that I mind, especially if you're a 6 foot tall, brunette with piercing blue eyes and an adorable accent, feel free to holla atchooo girl. I went for a ballerina-esque look with a casual feel by replaced the traditional tutu with a corduroy skirt that has an a-line shape so it gives off the same illusion. To tone it down a little, and to stay comfy all day, I pulled on my Steve Madden flannel boots and laced it all the way up for a little Doc Marten action. To tie it all together, I carried my vintage Coach Satchel that I thrifted for $15; my pride and joy. I feel like a shaggadelic dog in desperate need of a trim, my bangs have never been longer but I am totally loving the ability to throw my hair up in a buntastic way, you like? It's been a while since my hair has been past my chin, I am way looking forward to playing around with my hair once it grows out! A simple look for a simple Sunday spent strolling around 4th Street.

My puns are getting out of control aren't they? I thought so.

Great combo of girly with edge, and I am in love with the corduroy skirt you're wearing! As I already said, I'm super jealous of your upcoming trip! Make sure to shop a lot and eat a lot. (Esp oyster pancakes from TW, they are TO DIE FOR, especially if they're from a night market)

Your outfit is so cute, I love the skirt, the whole combination has a really summer-traveller feel to it if that makes sense! Haha I get what you mean about bangs, I hate having a long fringe though, I can't handle it falling in my eyes all the time!!
