    Daegu: Tartes & Tacos

    Uniqlo bratop + F21 skirt + Target boyfriend cardigan + Vivid Color monster socks + H&M platform shoes + The Little Fox The Runaways necklace These pair of birthday monster socks was just one of the many wacky socks that are everywhere in South Korea.

It’s the first time we’ve gone to the beach together, and Ottie was so impressed by Haeundae beach that we spent two consecutive days there- it’s reputedly the most popular stretch of sand in Busan after all. While it’s a pretty short stretch compared to the never-ending shores of LA, the waves at Haeundae beach were an awful lot more fun; Ottie and I joined quite a number of people trying to catch waves while bobbing…
