what is one article of clothing you can’t live without?

either joggers or hats. i think i wear a pair of joggers like everyday. and, hats help to keep my european/soccer inspired haircut covered when i don’t have time to gel up.

tokyo fashion

i, jane, just got back from tokyo, japan a few days ago! (more to come on my itinerary soon) when i went to tokyo, i had a single vision of what kind of fashion i would see. i imagined the eccentric, colorful “baby doll” style outfits that people tend to stereotype tokyo for having. however, i was instead exposed to wide spectrum of styles. something very prevalent was a french influence. french boutiques and french inspired fashion was everywhere. to further investigate, i spent a day in the western area of tokyo near the ebisu subway station to shop the french boutique filled neighborhoods. ¬†here are a few pictures and pieces i brought home !

loved this blue blouse. (this is the back)

this yellow shirt was my favorite purchase of the trip.
IMG_7878.JPG
was also in love with this fun collar, but sadly it didn’t fit right. (and the whole store was one size fits all… which isn’t too uncommon for tokyo!)

and speaking of fashion, here’s what i wore for my week in asia.

IMG_7885.JPG

pink sweatshirt: h&m

black jeans: madewell

green shoes: karhu (and also the absolute best shoes for traveling. super comfortable and easy to match and work with a variety of outfits and colors)

IMG_7887.JPG

shirt: [laura’s] madewell top from last year

scarf: f21

IMG_7879.JPG

this backpack was a game changer. cute, comfy, affordable, fun, and can fit a lot of stuff… it’s got it all.

IMG_7876.JPG

another travel tip: reversible, packable down coat ! mine was from amazon (laundry brand). here it is in purple and a very similar one here.

IMG_7875.JPG

sweater: jcrew last season

scarf: above

maroon pants: paige brand here. (all their pants are super comfortable and don’t get worn or torn)

shoes: above

stay tuned !

I have my fancy dresses, like this one, and then I have my comfy legging outfits. Sometimes I even like to wear my comfy and fancy together.

Bows.

What is your favorite piece of clothing that you own?

Probably this dress.
