just some basics

Lately, I’ve been living in this Cos shirt and pairing it with denim shorts everyday.  Even though it’s blazing hot out, I decided to chance the heat and went back to my preferred leather and boots because I just got so sick of wearing the denim shorts.  It was a glorious change.  At least until I had some mimosas and realized that wearing leather anything during the summer while drinking might never be a good idea.  Unless you love being covered in sweat.

summer vibes

fresh take freshtake3 freshtake1

When it comes to summer styles, I think there is nothing more fitting than adding a little boho twist to your usual staples.  In my case, a little embroidery goes a long way in achieving that slightly western vibe.

My sister recently gave me this white top claiming that the color looked bad on her.  Had to disagree but couldn’t complain about taking it off her hands since I’ve been wearing this top religiously since I got it!  It’s the perfect loose tunic/tank mix that makes me feel like I have nothing on.  And in my book, that’s always a big fat plus since I get so uncomfortable wearing heavy fabrics.  I have the worst time layering over the winter because I feel so constricted in them!

Ok, got a little off topic there with the winter woes and all so back to the tank tunic top.  I love it!  I also dug these floral skirt and shoes out of the closet while I was cleaning up and they all managed to go together nicely.  Love it when I find an old something while cleaning.

Found the cutest little graphic tee while shopping at The Grove.  This is just perfect to throw over shorts all summer long!  The raw hems and slightly shredded neck line is a plus.  I can’t wait to make it look more badass by throwing on a leather jacket over it come fall.

So late in posting these photos up but this is my one week in Tokyo spent walking around and trying to inhale my surroundings in.  Most times I was so busy taking everything in that I may have forgotten to take some pictures here and there.  I went for a friend’s wedding and it was such a different experience from any other wedding that I’ve been too.  First of which I couldn’t understand anything during the whole ceremony and especially during the speeches during the reception!  Other than that special occasion, I tried to eat as much sushi and wagyu beef that I could stuff in myself.  The beef was insanely unforgettable and just the thought of it makes me drool.  Tokyo… I’m coming back for you.
