Breathless.

I'm wearing:

1. Studded vest in off-white, from H&M.
2. Sleeveless t-shirt with leopard print, from H&M.
3. Blue super skinny jeans, also from H&M.
4. Hi-top sneakers, from FUBU.
5. Oversized clubmasters, from Ray Ban.
6. Spiked bracelet, from Pull & Bear.
7. Watchframe necklace as a bracelet, Maison Martin Margiela for H&M.
8. 7 dwarfs ring, thrifted.
9. Stegosaurus double ring, from H&M.
Sometimes, during a special moment, I think: "will I remember this later? Will I remember how this feels?"; those are questions that I've asked myself a lot lately. I wonder if I'll have the chance to recall all the cool experiences that I've had while being in Korea and the answer doesn't seem to appear clearly.

What I do remember tho, is the fact that during these cool moments I've felt breathless and that is an amazing sensation. It's about feeling so much excitement and joy that you forget to breathe and lose yourself into something bigger than you. Or at least that's how I like to describe it. 

I saw this cool wooden area at my Korean Uni and thought that it would be perfect for a relaxed look. It was like a small refugee and I loved it, the colors, the shapes, everything. I'm wearing my favorite vest and experimenting a little with textures, from suede to studs and spikes: a mixture that I call soft toughness.

January's theme is all about creating expectation and feeling that something great is coming, that's true, and I really wish that I'm able to be breathless many more times during the times ahead. It's the best feeling in the world. Have you ever felt like that? Let me know!

// A veces, cuando algo especial sucede, me pregunto: "¿seré capaz de recordar esto después? ¿recordar cómo se siente?"; esas son preguntas que me he hecho seguido últimamente. Me pregunto si tendré la oportunidad de hacer volver esas experiencias que he tenido en Korea y la respuesta no parece clara.

Lo que sí recuerdo es el hecho de que durante esos momentos padres me he sentido sin aliento y es una sensación asombrosa. Es sentir mucha emoción y felicidad, tanto que olvidas respirar y te pierdes en algo más grande que tú. O al menos así me gusta describirlo.

Vi esta área de madera en mi colegio coreano y pensé que era perfecto para un atuendo relajado. Sirvió como un pequeño refugio y lo amo, los colores, las formas, todo. Estoy usando mi chaleco favorito y experimentando un poco con texturas distintas, de gamuza a picos y tachuelas: una mezcla que me gusta llamar suavidad ruda.

El tema de enero trata de crear expectativas y sentir que algo grande se acerca, es cierto, y realmente deseo ser capaz de sentir que me falta el aliento muchas más veces en los tiempos que vienen. Es el mejor sentimiento del mundo. ¿Alguna vez lo han sentido? Cuéntenme.
Love always,
Hen.
