Happy New Year!
I am back in the States, but I wanted to share a few more outfit photos from Japan and also a recap of what I did during the week I was there.
My sister and I went to Harajuku to do some shopping. These photos were taken on a little side street on Takeshita Street in Harajuku. I love the bright yellow graffiti and the color of the wall made my black and white outfit stand out. I wore the pink scarf for that pop of color and to stay warm. I was wearing 4 layers on top, two on the bottom and even socks with my flats. I should have packed another pair of boots for this weather, but my previous trips to Japan have been during the summer and the hot and humid weather made me think it couldn't possibly be too cold for flats.
I did do some shopping and came home with 3 new coats. Fur, either real or faux, was everywhere. Women had jackets with hoods lined with fur, coats with fur trim or had fur stools as a finishing touch for their outfits. Needless to say my coats have faux fur trim which is also detachable. The coats are ridiculously warm and I am excited to share them on the blog!
After browsing and doing some damage at Harajuku we visited Ameyoko which is an interesting shopping district in Japan. We shopped and bought a bunch of candies and sweets. (Ame means sweets in Japanese but also refers to America). It is mix of small shops selling goods, American Imports, seafood and items being auctioned. It will be tough pairing down the photos and videos from our day of shopping but I am excited to go through them as I eat some Japanese sweets. (Hello Green Tea Kit Kats!)
Hope your first days of the year have been great and easy for you to keep your resolutions. I haven't thought of mine too much but I will keep you updated if I think of anything profound. I am really trying to be realistic about what I want to improve on. One thing for sure, I am glad I did a lot of traveling this year and expect to do some more this year.
Until next time,
