I’m just wearing a combination of some of my favorite pieces, almost all of which I’ve worn in photos on this blog before.
It’s absurdly muggy here in Tokyo, and the last couple days since arriving I’ve made the mistake of wearing skirts. It’s so sticky outside skirts just make my legs feel icky and sweaty, so I figured pants would be a better option.These pants I’ve worn before here – but felt they were a couple sizes too big. I altered them just before coming to Japan, so they would sit on the high waist. I now feel the crotch is now an insane one (i.e., too much fabric) but I prefer this shape to what they were before, which was shapeless.Trying out my Priscilla clip-in extensions in “Virgin Straight“. They blend pretty well with my natural hair color, and feel very soft.Anticipting the insane amount of walking that’s necessary to get around in Tokyo, I stuffed two Dr. Scholl’s gel pads into my choes – the front of foot pad, and the full gel liner. They help slightly, but it’s still murder on my feet, which are not conditioned to wearing heels for a long period of time. There was the time when I commuted to school by I walked to the station (20 minutes away), ran up and down numerous flights of stairs between stations, stood on the trains, and walking to school – then walking around campus all day – then doing the same in reverse at the end of the day – wearing 6-inch platform heels and not tripping, falling, or changing out my shoes once. Ah, those were the days.I found this lovely silk scarf at Goodwill. I’m usually turned off by “classic” designs like the Gucci-esque chain motifs on scarves, but I loved the colors of this piece. It’s so long.
Hope everyone’s having a great start to the week!

Love all the subtle colors of you outfit; and that bag! The bag looks like a great DIY inspiration. Hmm, now where can I get skull studs?! LOL
Beautiful yard with white gates!
I know – I have been searching for skull studs foreeeeever! I’ve still not been able to find them, but if anyone does, I think a bag like this would be so easy to DIY! Thanks for the comments – it’s my mother-in-law’s yard!!;-)
Just FYI I have seen little skull plastic buttons at JoAnns. They could be spray painted in metallic finish. But as you know it would be expensive to buy that many buttons…
Carly, I am as ecstatic as a child about my new banana earrings. They are not technically DIY but please take a look at them. I bought a lot of ten pairs of banana charms and had them turn into earrings. Selling them on Etsy. Please check them out, pretty plz and let me know what you think.
Thanks a bunch!
I love the totally relaxed, simple yet chic look. You look pretty, fresh and glowy 🙂 Your skin is goorgeous!
I love your shoes! the nail polish is so pretty too, I would love to get that shade. I have a blue nail polish but it doesn’t look as soft as yours.
Anyway, I hope you are having a great time in Tokyo 🙂
Thanks Nury for your sweet comments! The blue on my toes is O.P.I. No Room for the Blues (if I remember correctly). I got a pedicure and the polish looked more baby blue in the bottle, but turned out very turquoise once on. I like it, though!!:-)
I love this look and love your hair!
Thanks Janine! Just trying different things out to beat the heat!;-)
I love this look! Super cute. I love the glasses, and that bag is so lovely(being from Hawaii adds more too!)
