Another day of walking and I thankfully wore flats. Except, I didn’t realize it didn’t fit me perfectly despite being my usual size. I could barely walk throughout the day, as every step was a step to hell. I swear, I’m not exaggerating. The previous day was already bad, wearing these after made it worse. My soles were painful and cold. I couldn’t feel my fingers but I could feel the pain jolting through them at every step. And to think I wore this in Nami without issues. Is it because I didn’t have stockings on? Anyway. This was my second favorite outfit but also the least photographed, unfortunately. Mostly because, we wore hanbok majority of the day to get free entrance to palaces. Here’s day 5, two outfits, different era.
This yellow slogan shirt and deep pink crossbody bag made a gorgeous color clash. On top, I put on my Prince of Wales check blazer as slogan shirts work with it easily. Having a boxy silhouette for my top, I opted for mom jeans to cinch my waist. And although I said I can only wear heels with mom jeans, this was an exception. The blazer stops beyond my waist so it lengthened my torso and pairing it with flats exposing my ankle made me less stubby. I also chose these flats as I knew we would be wearing a hanbok later that day. And boots nor heels would definitely have not gone well with the traditional costume.
I didn’t bring an extra outer layer but had a black scarf ready, which may or may not match the outfit. But scarves-matching is another lesson to learn.
Matching with my crossbody bag, I found these belt and beautiful, but heavy, pink statement earrings. I had my hair in a bun, again, to emphasize it. Which played quite a big part to selecting my hanbok color.
There were different hanbok in different price range. We went for regular one as we’d rather buy skincare than spend more on the premium ones. But we’d be lying if we said we weren’t jealously side-eyeing those premium hanboks. With their intricate gold details and embroidery, this traditional Korean dress is a must-try for all. There are many rental shops near Gyeongbokgung Palace.
Here’s I wearing a hanbok and a modern watch, lol. What a mismatch.
