It was recently my birthday, and I am now a very adult-sounding 25 years old. Since I live far away from my family, the birthday was spent with my boyfriend in Seoraksan National Park. It was perfect.
It’s been a long time since I did a fashion post, mostly because I end up wearing the same shit day in and day out due to my moratorium on buying any new clothes. It’s also purposefully frumpy teacher shit that I wear every day, in the attempt to seem more serious at work and to counteract my womanly curves to keep things appropriate with students.
For my birthday, I got a beautiful fair-trade cotton jacket from Mata Traders. It fits just right and it’s a perfect weight for the late autumn days. I decided it was too va-va-voom without a scarf, so I added the sparkle scarf I bought for myself one year ago when I lived in Annecy.
The best addition to the outfit was my sock bun! I found out how to do it on Youtube and after destroying an old pair of tights I had my very own. It makes my hair look five times longer than it actually is, and gives it shape and volume. It’s a beauty life hack.
