ONSEN IN SYUZENJI

Last weekend I took a short trip to Shuzenji, just two hours
from Tokyo by Shinkansen.
It was the first time being here, and I was utterly amazed by the beautiful
scenery and amazing food.
If you want to get relaxed, to see around Mt. Fuji, or are interested in
Japanese onsen(hot spring), this area is full of traditional style hotels
and I'm sure you will be fascinated by the profound beauty of nature.

The first photo: the view from the room
you can see one of the most historic Noh stages in its garden

below: Skywalk
The longest suspended bridge in Japan
soooo thrilling!!
Unfortunately cloudy this time, but when it's sunny
you can get the superb view of Mt. Fuji (World Heritage) like this.

SHORT SLEEVE VEST

A cold wave stayed for a few days and now we are having huge temperature
swings......up and down. That actually tired me, and made me wish for some
spring spirit.
I confess that I've got to wear a chunky ribbed knit top underneath,
but for now wanted to sport this detailed vest with dramatic short sleeves.

DIYed JACKET

Today I attempted to reform my old sailor jacket.
With pearl buttons on, the masculine form was elevated to a more classy one,
and looks so fresh with juxtaposition -sweet and tough.

ART VIBES

This dress is one of my best-buys from the sale snatch of this season.
Love this artistic print and the cut-out detail that makes it even bolder.
Also you can find trousers and skirt with the same print (70% off now!)
so act fast before they're gone!

FROST ON NAILS

Updated nail design.
Inspired by the winter frost, added some gold dust at  random.

BOOTS THAT ROCK

This is what I wore during new year holidays.
I was actually at a resort in Okinawa, so naturally this was not an appropriate
pair of shoes. However I just wanted to rock-start the beginning of the new
year and I couldn't help putting these in my luggage.

The warm weather allowed me to sport this gorgeous pair to lunch,
so edgy though my face looked too loosen on the contrary.

boots: Acne Studios

A HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

New year greetings from Okinawa.

Arrived here in Okinawa three days ago. A great escape
to get into the vacation spirit.
I feel the ultimate detox from my busy days and get re-energized each day
seeing the turquoise ocean.

Wish you wonderful beginning of 2016......in peace!!
