Scored this biker vest at the recent Mango sale for 50% off! I have mixed feelings about going out nowadays because I always end up buying something, with all the major discounts being offered left and right. In a few weeks, I’m off to Hong Kong for a personal trip (Just overnight though!), and I’m already fearing for my wallet as early as now! I didn’t catch Stylenanda’s opening last year, but it’s definitely going to be one of my first stops in Hong Kong. I’m also going to Korea in October, and Japan again in December, so I definitely need to plan my budget better if I truly want to enjoy shopping. Let this blog entry be a reminder that starting today, NO MORE IMPULSE BUYING! 

Just G: Sweatshirt-Sleeved Denim Jacket

Always gotta be prepared for a little chilly drizzle! It’s still generally too warm to wear knits and heavy fabric, so layering is key with this kind of transition weather we’ve been having lately. I’ve always been an ame-onna (雨女, or rain woman) though - I greatly increase the chances of rain when I go out, so I always never leave the house without some form of outerwear. I get cold easily!

Here I wore a jacket from Just G’s latest “Tribe Squad Remix” collection, and it’s an amazing cross between a sweatshirt and a denim jacket! What I like most about this particular one is that it doesn’t come with a hoodie, which is common among sweatshirt-sleeved jackets. I think it looks a little more dressy this way! Don’t you think so too?

I can’t wait to pair it with my cutesy skirts!

Just G: Dreaming of Soft Denim

Posted on Sunday, 11 May 2014

While it’s too hot to wear your favorite jeans out, resort to other denim styles that’s more summer-friendly! Just G recently came out with a bunch of soft denim style items that are sure to be staples in your closet. It’s perpetually summer here in Manila anyway!

I rarely do sleeveless tops + shorts combos because I usually like balancing things out (sleeveless + pants / long sleeves + short bottoms). However, when the weather is killer, these kinds of breezy tops and shorts can do all sorts of miracles.

The most ideal casual summer dress for all those like me who embrace that “girl-next-door” style! 

I can’t stress enough how Just G is always on point with their dresses! I love how this particular one has these little lace details that are subtly slimming. The cut is also universally flattering for all body types.

Eat all you can and your (lower stomach) pooch will never show! This is how I pick out the style of my clothes, lol.

When talking about summer style, you can’t rule out light, breezy tops with relaxed silhouettes! This one comes with embroidery details in Just G’s signature orange color. Pair with floral pants and a bright-colored bag for a perfect weekend look.

Kawazu-zakura in Shinjuku

Posted on Friday, 25 April 2014

Taking a break from the extensive travel posts to share the beauty of Japan’s cherry blossoms! I was 2 weeks too early for full bloom, but one tree is definitely better than nothing.

Thanks to our helpful friends from METI who researched about the earliest blooming sakura trees in Tokyo, we were able to quickly and successfully find one at Shinjuku Gyoen. 

Kawazu-zakura are some the earliest-blooming type of sakura! The reason why they’re called this is because the trees’ birthplace is found in Kawazu-cho in Izu Pensinsula. There’s a street there that’s lined with bright pink (Kawazu-zakura trademark) cherry blossom trees, and they hold a festival for it around February/March. 

Most of the time, we see sakura illustrations and designs in pink. But the white ones, or the somei yoshino, are the most popular kind of sakura, contrary to popular belief.

If you have friends who went to Tokyo during this year’s sakura season, you’ll notice that most of their photos show the white/light pink variety. There are other kinds that even bloom later than usual, but I’ll save that for next time I go to Japan in spring!

Anyhow, I was so lucky to catch these vivid pink ones! It was so hard to stop to take photos.

I had another jacket with me as this outfit was definitely too cold for March weather! I just deliberately wanted to match with the background, lol.

Dream come true! I’m pretty sure you guys are sick and tired of me saying that in each and everyone of my Japan-related entries. But really, cherry blossoms are EVERYTHING. <3 Seeing them will make you forget all your problems. THANK YOU MOTHER NATURE!

It’s tricky to plan ahead for hanami/cherry blossom-viewing (the weather is unpredictable and the bloom dates change every year), but more or less, first week of April is the safest time to go. I want to go again next year!

Meanwhile, you can check out 100Tokyo for more pictures of sakura. “100Tokyo” is a new website which hopes to present Tokyo’s 100 best places and things to experience.

More Tokyo posts lined up in the next couple of days! Follow 100Tokyo on FacebookTwitterGoogle+ and Instagram.

More denim inspiration for those who need ideas on how to rock skinny jeans! I personally prefer to keep it clean and simple when I’m wearing jeans, so I tend to pair them with plain tops or classic patterns that are just as straightforward. Less is more!
