September is just around the corner, and while I’m excited for the upcoming fall season, I know I’ll miss the heat wave that has enveloped Tokyo for the last two months. For my last outfit post of the season, I want to introduce two different outfits that I styled with Rivieras slip-on shoes, a perfect staple for summer. Read on for more about my other summer favorites, including a discount code you don’t want to miss!

Rivieras for comfort & style

I rarely wear heels unless it’s for a party or special event. As a busy Tokyo-ite constantly on the go, it is crucial that I have a wide selection of comfortable footwear for my different outfits. So you can imagine my delight when Rivieras Japan gifted me two pairs of their signature slip-on shoes! While the design is quite simple and casual, they’re sophisticated enough to be worn with a chic ensemble. I wanted to keep this first outfit simple to compliment the checkered print of the shoes – a clean, white shirt with colorful shorts to match the orange lining of the clutch bag, topped off with some sassy sunglasses. Bringing out the California girl in me with a mix of Tokyo urban vibes. Outfit details at the end of the post!

都内ではしょっちゅう移動したり、重い荷物を運んだりすることが多いので、特別なイベントかパーティーではない限り滅多にヒールは履かないです。なので、Rivieras Japanからスタイリッシュなスリッポンを2足いただいた時は大感激でした!デザインは割とシンプルなのですが、シックなコーディネートとも組みやすいスタイルなので、とても気に入っています。最初のコーディネートは白黒のチェック柄のスリッポンに、シンプルな白シャツ、そして差し色になるオレンジのショーパンとクラッチを合わせ、涼しげな感じにしました。私の中のカリフォルニアガールと東京アーバンをさりげなくミックス。アイテムの詳細は下までスクロールしてみてね!

Another brand I’ve become quite fond of this season is Ideal of Sweden. They make the cutest smartphone accessories, including cases, wallets, and rings.

Love all of your chic summery looks. I’ve noticed that Asian countries tend to wear more boxy and crisp looks in summer probably because it is so hot and humid and people don’t like clothes sticking to their body and opt for a more chic minimal style. Love that second striped jumper, I would wear it in a heartbeat!
