The Beverly Hills of Tokyo

June is here, and so are the warmer, sunnier days that have been on a continuous streak for the past week or so. The rainy season usually starts mid-June, so I’m making sure to enjoy the beautiful weather until then. This weekend, I did a photo shoot at Zushi beach in Kanagawa prefecture, and my … Continue Reading

Flared all over

The transition between August and September, from summer to fall, is probably one of my favorites of the year. Adding touches of fall to my outfits is also something I look forward to. While I would never wear fitted pants during the sweltering heat of summer, now I can opt for denim and still feel … Continue Reading

Rio de Sol Brazilian swimwear

September is approaching, and summer is coming to an end. Summer seems never-ending, but before you know it, fall arrives and it’s back to school, back to work. I was lucky to have been able to visit one of Japan’s beaches for a photo shoot, and luckier that Rio de Sol sent me this swimwear … Continue Reading

Summer vibes in Japan

It’s nearly impossible to be surrounded by this much greenery whilst in Tokyo – the 3-hour trip near the coast of Chiba was well worth it. This hibiscus-print setup from Zaful looks way better against the green, anyway.  東京に住んでると、ここまでの新緑に囲まれることはないので、3時間かけて千葉県の海岸沿いまで行ったかいがありました。Zafulのハイビスカス柄のセットアップは緑を背景に撮った方が色が全然綺麗に見えるしね。 Set-up: Zaful; sunglasses: zeroUV; earrings: Beach Closet; choker: Zara; shoes: See by Chloe (Farfetch) All photos by Lasse … Continue Reading

Tropical thunder

In the concrete jungle called Tokyo, I’m sporting my new finds at the Zara sale along with my current favorites from zeroUV and Are You Am I. Don’t underestimate those summer sales, man. 東京というコンクリートのジャングルの中で、Zaraのセールで見つけたアイテムを着用。更に、最近毎日のように着回してるキャップとチョーカーは、それぞれzeroUVとAre You Am Iからです。サマーセールは侮れないね。 T-shirt: Zara; pants: Zara; wedges: Zara; cap: zeroUV; choker: Are You Am I; bag: Metrocity; watch: Fossil

Black bodysuit (featuring Wearall)

Show some skin this summer with a bodysuit. I got this Leora halter neck backless bodysuit from Wearall, an online shop with a great selection of dresses and bodysuits. While a bodysuit can be worn on its own, it looks great with a pair of jeans or shorts. I paired mine with my favorite Moussy … Continue Reading

OUTFIT | Summer lovin’ in Harajuku

With August just around the corner, it’s finally starting to feel a lot like summer, or at least it is for me. The endless heat wave, summer barbecues and trips to the beach. And when its over 35 degrees Celsius everyday plus the humidity, less clothing is a must. This airy T-shirt dress from Blondy … Continue Reading

Tanabata Festival 七夕祭り

A Japanese summer is not complete without a summer festival, also known as “matsuri” in Japanese. My mother and grandparents used to take my brother and I to the matsuri every summer we visited Japan. The endless street food vendors, toys, games and the bon-odori and taiko performances have always fascinated me as a child, … Continue Reading

tanabata matsuri, a Japanese festival

July in Japan means Tanabata, a little holiday that falls on the 7th, which literally means “evening of the seventh.” It’s the one night where the deities Orihime and Hikoboshi are able to meet over the Milky Way. Even though it fell on the 26th, the Tanabata Matsuri (festival) in Ogawamachi, Saitama was one of … Continue Reading
