Continuing on with day three of our Japan holiday: we took the train to Kita-Kamakuraa, saw the Engakuji temple and Kenchoji temple. We took the enoden train and saw the Big Buddha Daibucu (he’s the second largest Buddha in Japan and is 12 meters tall), and we also saw the Hase-dera temple (with the lovelly statue of Kannon), then we took the Enoden train to the end station Enoshima. We went up to the Enoshima lighthouse, M had dinner at Enoshima and I waited (as there was nothing for me) and had dinner back in Shinjuku, Tokyo.

Life has been pretty hectic lately, but then again it seems that I always say that. This is an outfit from last weekend – M and I met up with a friend and we hung out, grabbed lunch, went to a book store (bought myself a pretty awesome book, more about that later) and did a spot of sightseeing. It was a lovely day and I was also quite pleased with my outfit, though to be honest it was a bit cold out for it. Spring, where are you? I’m totallly ready for ya.

After Buddy passed away I was really sad, I get very attached to my animals and to me they are members of the family, so it was a hard time. We weren’t going to go visit Vienna this year but then M decided that I needed a change of scenery and we went for an extended weekend. The last time I was in Vienna was a year ago, in December, and it was after Dracul passed away (I think I was in more of a shock after Dracul passed away because at least Buddy had lived a relatively long life, he was about 14 years old, whereas Dracul would have only been 5 years old in the summer, so his death was completely unexpected) and I blogged about it here (you can see I look really sad in those photos). I hope next year we can go without any deaths preceding our trip, but I have to say that the change of place really did help.
The photo above was posted on my instagram and was taken in front of the Albertina museum.

This is an outfit from a while ago, it was right after my birthday and summer was starting to pick up speed (well, temperature) in Prague. M and I went to dinner and I just threw on the most casual outfit I could put together. Zara skinny jeans, H&M tanktop, Levi’s denim shirt, Tods classic canvas flats and my Iron Fist Bag.

Another belated outfit post, this was worn to M’s friend’s birthday party. I had a totally different outfit planned but then I went with this one instead. The dress I had originally wanted to wear was this one:

Okay, first of all, I want to say this is my favorite photo of me in a long time and it’s kind of funny that it is since you can’t see my face. But the reason why I love it so much is because it is so ME. This is who I am. I’m the wacky kooky girl that poses with a orange slice shaped seat cushion in a parking lot after having gone food shopping. Yes, I wore this gorgeous outfit to go food shopping. Over dressed? Definitely but it was a state holiday (last Friday) and I had some time to have fun with my outfit and I went with M, so I had someone to take my photo. Most of my daily outfits don’t get documented because all of my photos are iphone photos and I usually need someone (M) to take my picture. That aside, though I do love the silliness of the orange seat cushion, I really love this outfit by itself too.
You may recall these shoes from my things I bought in Rome post, they are flat ballerina shoes with cut-outs from Zara.

Mountain climbing/walking is definitely not my usual weekend activity. I’m a city-girl though and through, I once literally had an allergic reaction to fresh mountain air (okay, so it probably had more to do with the chlorine used in the pool that we went to later but whatever). I prefer the city to the country side and shopping is my cardio. Nonetheless, M convinced me (actually he bribed me) to give the mountains and fresh air a chance two weekends ago. I had one condition though…

But how about my favorite way to wear a trench? And also the way I wear it the most? Well, that’s simple really – it’s wearing it with a dress (or skirt) that has a shorter hem line than the trench coat. It’s provocative and sexy. It’s a bit naughty (especially if people can’t tell if you’re wearing something underneath or not).

As I’ve mentioned before, I happen to actually really like autumn. One of the things I particularly love about autumn is autumn fashion! I love layers! I love wearing back opaque tights (or funky printed tights), I love scarves and shawls. I love wearing leather jackets and I also love trench coats. This is my favorite trench coat (H&M, bought in 2010):
This post will recall the various ways that I’ve worn this trench coat in the past and how I styled it. Thus answering the age old question How to wear a trench coat? Continue reading In the Trenches →
Picking up where I left off with Outfit August, here are a few picks from last week. Starting with Thursday‘s food shopping outfit. It has gotten rather cold in Prague so I’m currently wearing lots of variations of this outfit: opaque tights, sweater or leather jacket, cute dress, cute flats.
I’m sorry the photo above is so grainy, it was dark by the time we got to the store and since I hadn’t been documenting my outfits at the beginning of the week, I wanted to have at least something to show you. My outfit consisted of several old pieces (both my dress and the sweater are really old; the dress is from H&M and I bought it in 2011 – I haven’t worn it in ages but because of Outfit August, I decided to revisit it.) I’m wearing a (new) flower headband but you can’t really see it (which was my lazy equivalent of making an effort). The shoes are also new, I bought them in the middle of summer this year in the Topshop sale, they were super cheap. Right away I knew I wanted to wear them with black opaque tights to really highlight those awesome cut-outs (as much as I dislike cut-outs on dresses, I LOVE them on shoes!)
