What I’ve Been Wearing/よく着てる洋服

I just had a little fun today dressing up and taking pictures in things I wear all the time. I used to be such a shopaholic, but I’m slowly learning the value of minimalism. Finding items you truly love and feel comfortable in is a beautiful thing, so why not wear them all the time?!

 

きょうよく着てる洋服を着て、写真撮ってみました。最近まで買い物大好きでしたけど、今はミニマリズムの価値を分かってます。大好きで毎日着たいものがあれば、毎日着ればいいんじゃないと思ってます。なので、最近の暇なときにこの洋服しか着てないです。

Shaking Hands

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.

I hope you also take the turn of season as a chance to reevaluate your outlook at try something new. Stay tuned to see what I try next!

Studs and Stripes

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!

Playsuit: Zara

What (We) Wore – Tokyo

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
