Flower Power

Adoring floral prints is just how I live my life. Flowers are the prettiest things in the world (until the pesky bees come) and I love wearing floral prints throughout the year. When I found this dress at one of my favorite boutiques in Seoul earlier this year, I obviously had to pick it up. It’s serious mod flower power in my favorite shift dress shape! Plus, pockets!

Lake Michigan Trip

Last week, we took a trip up to Michigan to visit one of Jaehoon’s best friends from his army days. I have always wanted to go to Michigan because I’ve seriously only heard wonderful things about the state and well, it was perfectly gorgeous! Lake Michigan was way above what I imagined and we had the best beach day ever!

Growing up in North Carolina away from the actual ocean beaches, I don’t think of lake beaches as sandy or clean enough to enjoy a swim. Lake Michigan was totally different. It was so clean, there were other families there having a wonderful time, and the water so warm and nice. We even look Siji swimming which he totally hated, but I’m not losing hope that he will find his inner swimmer.

Afternoon Tea in Toronto

I love afternoon tea so much. It’s probably one of my top three favorite things in the entire world. When we were in London for our honeymoon trip, we had afternoon at the God of all afternoon teas, Fortnum & Mason, and now I’m hooked. I crave those scones and clotted cream with a hot pot full of caffeinated deliciousness all the damn time now. So, for Jaehoon’s birthday, he mentioned us trying afternoon tea in Toronto. We found a few places, but decided to try the Fairmont Royal York’s afternoon tea in their Library Bar.

The hotel was gorgeous. Even Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip stayed there during the Golden Jubilee in 2002 and just to note, I’m a bit obsessed with the Royal Family. While we were there, a beautiful wedding was taking place and the bride looked so stunning. The afternoon tea was delicious and so perfect. I would definitely recommend a visit if you’re ever in Toronto and want to have that British feeling of wonderfulness in a sugary-sweet form.

East Aurora

Taking short day trips has sort of been our thing ever since we started dating. Now, we are in America and can go a few more places (however, not that many from Buffalo) and see some super cute, quaint towns. Today, we drove only 30 short minutes to the village of East Aurora.

The town of East Aurora was really lovely and had this really welcoming small town vibe. We didn’t end up staying that long or exploring too much since the humidity and temperature kept rising after we arrived. I seriously need to find a summer style that keeps me a lot cooler during these steamy hot summer months.

Ellicottville: The Real Stars Hollows?

I LOVE Gilmore Girls so much and can’t wait for the November 25th revival! We decided to take another day trip to Ellicottville, a small ski town about an hour from Buffalo with a population of less than 400 people. I found it online the morning before we went and I had no idea it would look so lovely and look so similar to Stars Hollow, the fictional town in Gilmore Girls.

The entire town was incredibly charming and quaint. It continuously gave me Stars Hollow feels. We walked around for a few hours in the summer temperatures and I didn’t even hate my time outdoors there. We looked around in a few cute stores, had some drinks at Ellicottville Brewing Company, and just admired this lovely place. I would definitely recommend a trip to Ellicottville if you’re in Western New York to truly feel some Stars Hollow vibes.
