Too Cool for School

Before coming to college, I lived in the warmest countries in Asia and did not own a single winter coat from ages 9 to 18. Then I moved to DC where my roommate (who was from Thailand) and I, who were both pretty much deprived of snow growing up, enjoyed the snowy winter like there's no tomorrow. But ever since I tasted that bit of Polar vortex in Chicago a winter prior to this one, I started showing such negative--almost allergic--reactions to snow. Nothing seems romantic and beautiful anymore, but everything about it seems to scream inconvenience. And my goal for the future is to move to somewhere warm where I can just sit around in shorts and sandals with my glowing tan on.

Anyhow, I thought the weather was getting warmer and warmer until this very day when it started to snow. This was not a real big surprise, but considering that I was saving this day for a photoshoot wearing some floral spring dresses, no doubt I was disappointed and quite frankly feeling very moody.

So here's me, trying to make the best out of this frigid spring weather, trying to be as colorful as I can possibly be. I am wearing a sleeveless dress featuring a sheer eyelet skirt, a denim jacket, and my hologram oxfords. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know that I have been going through some serious purple obsession (heck, purple was never my favorite color, ever!). I have finally successfully dyed my hair lavender, so to match that I have on a purple bag.

Do you put on extra colors when you are feeling a bit down, or do you go full-on black? This sure was one of the rare days when I did not (or tried not to) wear my emotions on my outfit.

XOXO, HaeMin

  7. Ah you look so cute! <3 And you have such a nice outfit despite the weather!
    I live in Western Canada where it snows/winter usually 6 months or more of the year.
    Makes me sad I can't wear cute shoes 90% of the time going out either because the snow and ice is too dangerous :(
