Ah, the joys of taking outfit photos without a camera remote... I have since found it, and let me tell you, that was a relief. Because all the yoga lessons in the world won't make pressing the 10 second button and then leaping athletically backwards and striking a pose any easier. There was also wind. Biting wind. I suffered for these photos, okay? In a First World kind of way...
So this is pretty much the first thing I wore after we got back home and I could hold my red jeans in my arms again and hug them like a long lost child. I'd missed them so much, not to mention I'd been dying to try out my stripey sweater with them ever since Liz suggested it after seeing this outfit. I should let Liz dress me more often, because I just felt so well in this getup!
Of course, I had to put my own spin on things and include some polkadots too, you know? I really felt the bow gave my outfit that extra little something. The bow, incidentally, is all that can be seen of this blouse. I mean, does it lend itself well to layering, or what? I think I wanna repeat this blouse and sweater combo over a skirt sometime, I just love it that much. Ah, sorry if I'm getting terribly excited over my own outfit, but I haven't blogged one since forever so maybe we can blame that on blogging withdrawal?
Finally, my shades... let's talk about my shades, which cost me only 315 yen! That's $3.19 or £1.98. In other words, insanely cheap for the sturdiest, most stylish pair of sunnies ever. I got them at a 3 coin shop, which is basically a chain that carries gorgeous high-quality stuff - I've bought everything from glass bottles to hair bands to a jewellery rack there in the past - and prices everything so that the tax is included. No fuss, no working things out in your head, you just pay the price that's on the tag. So if you are a weary traveller in Japan who has just run out of socks, ahem, then the 3 coin shop is the place for you.
