Rockin' My Nightie & Khaki On A Grey Sunday

5 March 2012

Yesterday was the first day since arriving back in Korea that my fiancee and I got time to just relax. No jobs, no unpacking (that's all done, finally!) and no work. The weather was grey and blustery, so nursing a little bit of a hangover, we decided to go for a casual late brunch and a drive around our new neighbourhood to get to know it a little better.

I wore a new t-shirt and jacket that I got a few days ago in Forever 21. I was supposed to be shopping for apartment stuff but I couldn't help having a browse, I missed F21 whilst I was in England!

The jacket is very lightweight and is made of 100% cotton - rather surprisingly for F21 - who are usually purveyors of polyester!! I know it's going to be something I'll be slinging on over lots of different things as the weather continues to get warmer.

The t-shirt is long, loose and slinky which is probably because it's actually supposed to be nightwear (sshhhhhh!) but I decided I like it too much to confine it to my bedroom! Don't tell anyone and I'll just keep hoping I don't get seen by anyone who knows it's a nightie!
Turquoise Ring & Bracelets - Accessorize

Khaki Jacket - Forever 21. Black Oversized Tote Handbag - Bally


Diamante Encrusted Ballerina Pumps - Zara


Mini Coconut Meringue - Little bites of heaven to me :)


Good day wear, no?! 'In Love' nightdress t-shirt - Forever 21. Sunglasses (not for sun but to hide tired eyes) - Gucci.

Since the apartment is just about finished now I've got much more time for blogging again so I'll show you a few photos of things I've been up to and my new place later this week.

In the meantime....how did you spend your weekend?  Leave a link if you wrote a post about it, I love seeing what everyone did. Also, please click to follow me on Bloglovin and 'like' my Facebook page, I only have a few Facebook Friends :(

    1. Oh I'm sorry I don't know why it's doing that. I think it could be some web browsers that don't show certain elements properly. I've put a link at the very bottom of my post that says 'Click HERE!' in pink so that you can follow me there :)

  3. Lovely outfit, this is going to sound really silly but I never would have imagined that kind of nature in your background in Korea, I really don't know what I would have thought it would be like but that just kind of caught my attention!

    1. A lot of people aren't sure what Korea will look like, in fact before I cam here I had no idea! I should really do a post out and about some time to educate the world, haha ;)

  13. You are so gorgeous, and love that outfit especially the shirt :) I swear by the fact that you could wear all guy clothes and still look feminine and beautiful, guess some hotties like you can pull it off.... I think my biggest envy of mine to you has to be your hair, it is so thick and perfect!

    1. Yeah, seriously amazing clothes!! I read an article a while ago about when she first tried to make it on the New York socialite scene, it was cringy at best! From what the article was talking about it seemed she basically used anyone she could to get up on the ladder not unlike on The City really. But yeah...the girl can dress!! I'd happily have her wardrobe! x
