There are just so many nice locations in Japan that wherever you're standing, it's bound to be picture perfect. Since we had a full day of touring for Cool Japan and 100 Tokyo, we decided to take a quick outfit shot in a small empty street somewhere in Harajuku street. Even from afar you can still see the flashing lights and busy street! It was around 10-12 degrees when we went to Tokyo so I made sure I was all covered up. I'm really lamigin (ibang level) so I have to be in complete gear when I go out- that means wearing thermals, a thick jacket, warm boots, sometimes a hat and a scarf. I wore this during out first tour day and since it's still an event tour, I wore chunky boots that's unbelievably comfier than some of my sneakers. Good thing I bought it the night before my trip! It's also always a hassle to be wearing a lot of accessories when you're traveling because you don't want your arms/ neck to feel heavy when you're walking around the whole day, so this scarf from Jewelled Scarves became my favorite travel accessory in an instant. It's a scarf that has embellishment so it looks like a necklace when worn. You can wear it in so many ways too! Scarf tucked under the beads, twisted around the necklace or use it like a normal scarf like how I did. With an all black ensemble, you'll look chic right away.
Ps. Jewelled Scarves is available in Rustan's Edsa Shang-rila Mall and Rustan's Our Very Own shop in Resorts World.
There's something magical about taking outfit posts in Pico De Loro- I always feel like I'm enjoying more. When I have events at the beach, it's always nice to mix a swimsuit with a maxi skirt because it looks really beachy but still elegant- plus you can't really do it often in the city. A few days before this trip, I was able to drop by Common Thread in Greenbelt 5 and fell in love with their store and customer service. All the people working there are so friendly and they really have taste when they help you pick out the items you need. As you can see, I got a lot from them! It's convenient because they have several brands under one store so I don't need to spend hours strolling around the mall looking for each item you need. Anyway, back to my ootd, I usually hate wearing plunging tops so I was really surprised this swimsuit suited me well. It's also nice even without the skirt! Since it's black, it looks extra classy too. BMS.
