If you're going through hell... Keep going.

I'm wearing:

1. Light blue denim jacket, from Pull & Bear.
2. Striped t-shirt, from Zara.
3. Gray super skinny jeans, also from Zara.
4. Blue suede Mortimer boots, from Frank Wright.
5. Spiked bracelet, from Pull & Bear.
6. Rings, from H&M.
I heard this quote the other day and I can't keep it out of my head: "If you're going through hell, keep going". Those are the only words I've ever heard from Winston Churchill, I'll admit, but I think they're powerful ones. I believe that when life is not going the way you want it to, the best you can do is keep going and, eventually, the challenges you're facing will be overcome. If you're going through hell, keep going.

The life in the city is complex, there are lots and lots of things going on all the time, some good, some bad, it's quite easy to get lost in between stages. As overwhelming as may be, I don't regret living in a hectic place; I would get bored without a little chaos every now and then.

The photos were taken at my Korean uni in what seems like an urban park. I like how the concrete floor, wooden benches and brick buildings are dissonant with the beautiful sight of trees. Those are dichotomies you only find in the big metropolitan areas. I like the color palette of this outfit and how it goes with the brown on the bench, I think it looks really nice, casual and cool.

// Escuché esta frase el otro día y no puedo sacarla de mi cabeza: "If you're going through hell, keep going". Son las únicas palabras que he oído de Winston Churchill, lo admito, pero creo que son unas poderosas. Cuando la vida no va en el camino que esperamos o queremos, lo mejor es seguir avanzando y, eventualmente, los desafíos enfrentados serán superados. If you're going through hell, keep going.

La vida en la ciudad es compleja, hay muchas cosas sucediendo simultáneamente todo el tiempo, algunas buenas, otras malas, es fácil perderse en el camino. Por más abrumador que pueda ser, no me arrepiento de vivir en un lugar agitado; me aburriría sin un poco de caos de vez en cuando.

Las fotos las tomé en mi universidad coreana en lo que parece ser un parque urbano. Me gusta cómo el piso de concreto, las bancas de madera y los edificios de ladrillo son disonantes con la vista bien súper bonita de los árboles. Esas son dicotomías que sólo encuentras en las áreas metropolitanas. Me gusta la paleta de colores en este atuendo y cómo va bien con el café de la banca, creo que se ve buena onda, casual pero padre.
 Love always,
Hen.
