Japan is amazing, because unlike Texas, there are actually four distinct seasons. It has recently gotten quite chilly here, so I had to pick up a few warmer pieces.
I found these high-waisted pants for ridiculously cheap at H&M. Granted, they aren’t the most flattering on my body shape, but I sort of kind of don’t care. The oxblood color is perfect for this season!
I paired them with some Jeffrey Campbell boots (complete with frilly socks!) and a few different tops to suit the weather outside.
We all know fall can be a little bipolar weather wise; mornings are chilly and the afternoons can be warm, so I first tried these pants with this interesting cutout T-shirt from Asos and a vintage beret.
Next, I thought these pants would look awesome with this amazing retro cardigan I found at a resale shop. It’s just funky enough to spice up a plain outfit.
Last, I threw on my favorite over-sized cream cardigan. This look is probably my favorite because it’s super fall and super comfortable.

I’m obsessed with stripes. I never go out looking for them, but I’m constantly drawn to clothes with those black and white bands.
Here’s the first of two looks using stripes as the focus. The first is a summery look, because here in Kagoshima, it’s still unbearably hot and humid.
I paired this Zara playsuit (yes! It’s shorts!) with an oversized Asos sunhat, Tatty Devine lollipop necklace, and a Rebecca Minkoff Mac bag. All made ever so slightly naughty with my Jeffrey Campbell spike Litas.
Stripes are classic, and luckily for me, look great in all seasons. But then again I’d wear all black all year round if I could…
That being said, I am so ready for warmer weather. I’m tired of bare arms and sweating. Stay tuned for a more fall ready look!
What I’m wearing:
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell
Necklace: Tatty Devine

If you follow my Japan-related blog amakara, you know that I spent a week in Tokyo recently. Though I live in the country-side where there are few people to impress, I’m constantly thinking about my personal style, but going to the big city makes it feel a little more important. I’ve always felt as though style is the first and most obvious way to let others know what kind of person you are. It’s wearable art. So, needless to say, what I (and my friend) wore in Tokyo was a big deal to us. That being said, Japan is so super hot and humid in the summer, and we had to do a lot of walking in the city. So enjoy our comfortable summer looks!

As you can see, we did keep it mostly simple. If you’re visiting Tokyo (or other parts of Japan) in the summer, I highly recommend light, breathable materials and flat shoes! You can check out more looks on my instagram. See you soon! XO
On Saturday, I went to Miyazaki City to studying for an upcoming test with a friend.
We only went to study and hang out, but I don’t go into the city often, so I naturally dressed for the occasion. Plus, I just bought this new hat from Asos and wanted to wear it. And yes, once again, I’m wearing all black. I can’t help it!
This season really is all about crop tops and high-waisted shorts. I prefer the classic version. This pair of shorts is from H&M.I love this red bag. It’s the Rebecca Minkoff Mini 5-zip, and it goes so well with black and white assembles. It’s just my style!
このバッグはお気に入りです。レベッカミンコフのMini 5 Zip。最近、福岡に店できて、うれしいです!
Until next time, kisses from Kina and Kori!
