Fall/Winter 2014 [秋・冬] = Oxblood Jeans

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.

私の出身のテキサスとは異なり、日本は本当の四季あります!最近、だいぶ寒くなりましたね。なので、あったかい服を購入しなければならなかったんです(笑)。

 

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.

この紅色のハイウエストズボンはH&Mで見つけました。すごく安くて、秋に合う色ですから、気に入りました!私の体型に合わないと思ってますけどね。

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.

まずはお昼の暖かいコーディネットです!TシャツはAsosというオンラインストアで手に入れました。

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.

次は、Grapefruit Moonの古着屋で買ったセーターを着ました。こういうヴィンテージセーター大好きです。着るといつも”お洒落じゃない”と思ってます。

Last, I threw on my favorite over-sized cream cardigan. This look is probably my favorite because it’s super fall and super comfortable.

はい、最後のコーディです!お気に入りのカーディガン<3.

Finally the second part of the stripes shoot! And now that it’s officially fall, it’s even more appropriate! As I mentioned before, I’m a little in love with stripes, so when I saw this top in La Foret in Harajuku, I had to buy it. Once again, the pallet is a bit plain, so I threw on my lollipop necklace for a little fun!

Fall is probably my favorite season (possibly only second to spring), because the weather is perfect, the trees turn varying shades of orange, and I finally don’t have to worry about sunburns and heat rash anymore. This fall is also special because it marks the beginning of what could be my final year in Kagoshima. Or at least Shibushi. I’m so excited for the changing leaves and the opportunity to change myself. The future is bright ladies and gentlemen. Bright as this bright blue wall. I’m looking forward to what’s to come.
