Japan 2015: Tokyo By Day

For about the entire trip, visiting Tokyo was the thing I was looking forward to the most for plenty of reasons - because I've always been partial to beautiful cities, because there's so many nice places to shop, and lastly, because I was going to meet up with one of my best friends to see the city! (I have a totally separate post for that, btw. Haha!) Read on to see our day in Tokyo!

Winter's Height

Even though I knew that it would be cold when I visited Japan, I didn't really know how cold it would be. It was my first time to experience weather that was this cold for a week, I only knew the number of the temperature and the fact that, as much as possible, I didn't want to resign myself to wearing down jackets (the winter jacket with the puffs) just to battle the cold. This is what I wore on my first real day in Japan and I think was able to manage, more or less, successfully? Read on to see more of the outfit!

Japan 2015: Hakone & Tama

When I found out we were going to Mount Fuji, I was really nervous because I had no idea how cold it was going be, exactly, and I wasn't sure if the clothes I wore were going to be enough to battle the cold. I brought the nerves with me to the very day we visited and just made sure to wear the thickest clothes in my luggage. Miraculously, I made it, but the cold eventually takes its toll and you really have to run back to the bus for the heat! Haha!

January 21 | Change & Lack Thereof

More than an outfit post for this time because I'm attempting a little something more for my birthday! So today, I turn 20 and it truly is as weird and as surreal as they say. I'm not a teenager anymore and it's a good kind of scary. Even since I was a lot younger, I would look forward to becoming this age but I don't really know why. Possibly because I've always been more mature for my age. A lot of my friends already think of me as a 30-year old! Haha! More on this later, but for now, here's the outfit I wore to my birthday lunch last Sunday with family!

Japan 2015: Cloudy At The Kiyomizu Temple In Kyoto

The few hours we spent at Kyoto before being whisked away to Hamamatsu were easily the most magical few hours I've had in 2015. I love how Kyoto has all these modern buildings but also manages to retain such a beautiful cultural side that is incomparable to anywhere else. We visited the Kiyomizu-dera or Holy Water Temple, which to no surprise was also very crowded. Read on to see more of this gem!
