lunch break

Wearing the most comfortable items possible while I fill my belly up during lunch.  Can’t beat the combination of jersey and chambray with some tennis shoes.

I have been looking around forever to find this Helmut Lang skirt in my size.  It was really nice to stumble across it on the Saks Off Fifth site for half the price!  I’m going to need to scavenge this website a little more frequently because they seem to have a really good stock of old favorites at a cheaper price.

downtown

I can’t stop wearing my Opening Ceremony jacket with everything!  Super warm and looks great thrown over anything.  Decided to dress it up a little bit with this chain belt and a lot of black.

black and some leopard

A little leopard to polish up a basic black outfit.

Random question, does anyone’s hat tend to want to fly off when the wind is blowing?  I’m starting to speculate that maybe my hats may be too big for my head… But I so hate it when it’s snug on and makes my head feel claustrophobic!  What to do, what to do…

summer wedding

thomaswedding thomaswedding1 thomaswedding22 thomaswedding7 thomaswedding3 thomaswedding10 thomaswedding11 thomaswedding8 thomaswedding6 thomaswedding12thomaswedding17 thomaswedding20Gorgeous summer wedding!  I’ve never been to a wedding where the ceremony AND reception were held outdoors, and it did not disappoint.  The outdoor reception was so romantic and lovely.  I spent most of the night guzzling wine and cheering for the newlywed couple.  Almost to the point of pestering the bride to take an annoying amount of photos with me.  Blaming the wine for this!  I did manage to get a lot of great shots of and with them so I am still very pleased with myself. 😛

Now onto the outfit.  It’s fast becoming a habit of mine to not buy dresses because they’re so difficult to incorporate into multiple different outfits.  Which is why I decided to go with separates.  This Reformation skirt that I recently purchased seemed to be the perfect bottom piece because it’s so lightweight and that slit gives me a lot of leg room to dance my heart out on the floor while looking a bit sexier.  I paired it with a crop top that was hiding out in my closet and also some heels that would not match with anything I own.  I love it when you’re about to give up on something and it somehow finds it way to being useful again!

think pink

It’s amazing how a good dose of pink can liven up an outfit.  Wearing the same Cos shirt that finds its way on my body every day and some pink shorts that I picked up at Zara.  I also added some silver heels to give the outfit a little extra specialness.  They’re such a great alternative to nude or black sandals!

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.

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.
