Some say fashion is about sacrifice, and while that can be true, I still opt for comfort 80% of the time. These relaxed pants from Style Moi are the epitome of comfort and the added side slits make it even better. I combined some other casual items with these pants, including a loose tank top I found at Forever 21, and this khaki jacket from Zara. I can’t believe the warm summer months are over, but looking forward to the fall season!
I’ve been collaborating with my photographer Lisa of Paint with Stars for over 2 years now, and I seriously could not have produced quality content without her help. Shooting and working with her each time is a breeze, and she is one of the sweetest people I’ve met in Japan. She recently wrote a blog post about her experiences as a foreigner in Japan for the past 6 years (she’s originally from northern California), and it instantly gave me more willpower to keep pursuing my dreams, and to simply not give up. It’s worth the read guys, check it out here.
ファッションのために着心地を犠牲にしないといけないと聞いたことがありますが、私はそれでも着やすい服に引かれてしまいます。このStyle Moiのリラックスパンツは本当に履きやすくて、サイドスリットも涼しげなポイントです。今回はForever 21のベーシックなタンクにZaraのカーキジャケットでカジュアルダウンなコーデに仕上げてみました。もう夏が終わるんだと思うと寂しいですが、秋が楽しみになって来ました！
ここ2〜３年ぐらい、いつも素敵なお写真を撮ってくれるPaint with Starsのリサさんとずっとコラボレーションしていますが、彼女のお陰でここまでクオリティーの高いコンテンツをアップできているので、本当に感謝しています。撮影するときもやりやすいし、めっちゃ優しくて穏やかな人です。最近その彼女も、日本に移住してからの経験をブログ記事にまとめていました。私も読んで色んな意味で共感できて、また頑張ろうって気持ちになりました。英語ですが、こちらで是非読んでみてくださいね！

you look stunning sweetie ! love the way you style it all together 🙂
Great style, love it!
I love this look. I'm such a fan of taking regular pieces (like the white tank) and remixing them into something new by cutting it, tying it, or just playing around and finding a new way to wear it.

I'm a half japanese & half swedish girl, raised in japan and currently living in sweden, and I've been struggling with my ethnicity, the feeling of being split in middle and the sadness of always being so far away from home, for so long. lately, I've almost given up my dreams of moving to japan again because of my fear of being too swedish/radical/outspoken and not enough educated/ambitious/skinny for the japanese society. I started to think that I would never fit in anyway – I can't make it there.
but then I found your blog and I just want to thank you for being such an inspiration for me. you gave me hope and motivation, and next month I will go to tokyo for vacation, but I will also search for work opportunity when I'm there! this is a huge step for me and I can't describe with words how greatful I am. thank you for your amazing blog.
Love this outfit. ^.^ You're amazing!
Samantha Mariko, you look amazing! There's such an ease about this outfit that I really like. It definitely looks comfortable, yet you look so chic. Those pants are so unique, but you pull them off super well. I love that slouchy jacket!
You are seriously one inspirational blogger! Love your photos. Comfort in style is always the way to go!
these bottoms looks super cool! Love it!
