Skulls and Ankles and Things.

16 Nov

Aloha. And how are we today? Recently I have been working bits and bobs in the local libraries, and working on my TEFL course. One year in Korea wasn’t enough for me, y’all. I’ve got the travel bug and I’ve got it bad. Teaching is just such an amazing way to fund that. Before that, there are some things I’ve gotta do.

My ankle surgery will be on the 14th of December and I think I may have to take some time off to figure out how best to take outfit photos on crutches. Any tips? I’ll probably only have a couple of weeks off. I know you’ll miss me, but man oh man, do I have some treats in store for you during my little blogging holiday.

I feel utterly terrible for my ripped off version of the Alexander McQueen skull scarf. Who can afford the real thing though? Ironically, I bought this scarf from a local market when I was going through a goth/emo faze at the tender age of 15. I didn’t really give two hoots about fashion, then. Please forgive me. I have been through a lot of fazes, and I have to say, that one probably wasn’t the worst.

I hope everyone is having a splendid beginning to the week. I am guest blogging today over at the lovely and sweet Mademoiselle Sonushka. I discussed my clashing passions, and what it’s like to travel without my wardrobe. Intense stuff. Go and check it out here.

p.s- I think those thighs of mine will officially be retiring for the winter.

Wedges: I’m not sure, Socks: H&M, Shorts: Forever 21, Belt: Thrifted, T-Shirt: ModCloth.

    Good luck with you ankle surgery. I think it will be quiet funny/cute to see outfits accessorized with crutches.

    I’ve recently felt the urge to travel more than usual. I think it’s the being newly single thing. I’ve even considered going to teach in Korea, just like you. I don’t know if I could do it though!

    I went through a goth-ish faze when I was 13. Must be a thing? I don’t actually have any cool stuff from that time, though, except an appreciation for NOT wearing 2 inches of black eyeliner every day.

    hehehe I think you must have meant “thigh highs,” or that your thighs will be hiding out for winter! anyway, love the high socks w/ wedges. I def agree that teachign is the best way to fund travel, usually once you get over somewhere travel is pretty cheap, so i always find it best to live somewhere for awhile & bus travel all around. Teaching def isnt my fav but usually the only job us lucky native english speakers can always do so!

    best wishes for your surgery.
