Thank you so much for the encouraging and insightful comments on my last diary post! I'm so glad I added that little segment in my blog.
Right when I thought fall had arrived... it started getting warm again. The weather was fantastic yesterday when Lisa and I shot this photos, but still, it was a bit too warm for my taste. I want to wear my fall knits and sweaters already! Anyways, I wanted to wear my new oxfords from ORiental TRaffic (probably the only shoe store in Japan that carries my size), so I paired them with my skinnies from Le Ciel Bleu and went for a somewhat pretty, school boy look. I actually work for this brand, and I already own 4 pairs of jeans.. they know how to make a good pair! I rolled up the hem to show off my oxfords. I had to go to a meeting after the shoot, which is why I am carrying my laptop with me, the neoprene Marc by Marc Jacobs case courtesy of Shop Bop :)
I do like to dress up and accessorize like crazy once in a while, but you know what, I think I'm in my element when I'm in a plain V-neck tee and some jeans. That's where my California girl vibes kick in. I think it's a matter of how well you style them - even small details like the fit of the jeans, what shoes you wear, how you arrange the shirt can really change up your look.
Well, I am off to enjoy the rest of my Sunday! Have a great weekend all!
