Couldn't wait for summer.

I couldn't really wait to wear this tie-dye tank from one of my favorite LA brands named High heel suicide until summer.
I styled it with denim-on-denim  to match it with this very summer like colorful tank also with a purple bandana to complete my look. 
It's hard to see in the pictures but the tank I got is pretty long, which makes me wanna wear it as  a dress with engineer boots in summer :)

このタイダイシャツは私がLAブランドでも特に好きなHigh heel suicideのもの。
ブランドネームの様にパンチが効いたデザインの洋服が多くてとっても好き。
すっごく夏っぽいデザインのタンクだけど、夏まで待てなかったから中にいっぱい着込んで意地でも着てみました笑
 写真では分かりずらいけどLサイズを買ったからとっても大きくて、実はワンピース風にも着れる。 
夏になったらエンジニアブーツとこれ一枚でラフに着こなしたいな^^

I already miss it.



I came back from the states a few days ago and I already miss being there. I miss the food, shopping , driving and mostly my boyfriend and his pet bird named Parry. 
The only thing that makes me glad to be in Japan now is probably the weather. I was actually so surprised when I got off the plane and felt the very warm wind at NRT airport because it was still freezing cold in Boston when I left there. The highest temperature was 73 degree in my town today and it was totally fine to go outside with shorts and a T-shirt on.

Anyway I still have some outfits from my stay in the States that  I haven't blogged yet so I'm gonna just upload them here when I have time.

I own so many denim shorts already but its hard to stop myself buying another when I go shopping at a thrift shop because they have bunch of cool&cheap jeans and what I do is just cut them off and make shorts.

3日程前に日本に帰って来ました。既にアメリカが恋しい。
でもボストンに比べてだいぶ温かいからそれだけでテンション上がる^^
ボストン出発した日はマイナスにとどくくらいの気温だったから、成田空港着いた時気温の差にびっくり。 今日なんかぽっかぽかで、朝からショーパンとTシャツでスケボー行ってきた。笑

旅行中のコーディネートがたまってるので時間ある時にアップして行きたいと思います。

デニムショーパンって数えきれない程もってるけど、古着屋行くとついついまた買ってしまう。 ボストンにいつも行く古着屋さんがあるんだけどそこだと何百本ものジーンズがズラーっとあって、一本600円くらいでだから、いつもそこで買って、それをはさみで切ってショーパンに☆ このアウトフィットのデニムショーパンも古着屋で買って、切ったもの。今までは切りっぱなしのショーパンの方が好きだったけど、裾を折って履くのも最近好き^^

Give up on comfort? NO.



A bit late but here is what I wore on my one-day trip to NYC.
I imagined it's gonna be too  cold to walk around NY in skirts or shorts so I chose boyfriend oversize jeans.  I also wore UNIQLO's heat tech under the stripe top and a MA-1 jacket(not in the pics) over the biker's jacket to survive the  cold day. Also I now think it was a smart choice I wore easy-to-walk Bershka boots to enjoy my shopping day in NY. 
It's always a big choice for girls to decide what to wear on a special day like dating,shopping or traveling , right? We what to be dressed good but dressing good sometimes means a sacrifice of comfort, like when you wanna wear heels but these are not really for a shopping day or when you wanna wear skirts although the weather does't allow you to.  Which do you usually choose ,comfort or appearance? For me the comfort is the most important butI still I need both. On this trip I gave up on wearing a skirt and instead chose cozier jeans but there is still a chance to look good with these on as long as I do the rest right!  


少し遅くなったけど先週ニューヨークに小旅行に行った時のアウトフィット。まだまだ寒いからストッキング履いてボーイフレンドデニムに、上はヒートテックとボーダーのセーターその上にMA-1。
女子にとって特別な日の服選びってとっても重要。 デート、ショッピング、旅行とか。 かわいい格好したいけど、冬は寒いと脚出しづらいし、ヒール履きたいけど、ショッピングとか観光となると疲れちゃうし。私は見た目か心地よさかどっちかって言われたら心地よさを選ぶかな。ニューヨークなんてたまにしか行けないし、スカート履いてもう少しかわいい格好して街中を歩きたかったっていう思いもあるけど、寒さのたパンツをチョイス。けっこうカジュアルで手抜きっぽくも見えるジーンズだけど、上をタイトめのセーターとライダースでシュッとみせればOK^^

Here we met again in NYC!



I met this incredibly beautiful and intelligent woman last Halloween in Tokyo. 
We got very drunk together that night yet promised to each other that we'd meet again somewhere in the world, which just came true a few days ago in NYC! 
 We only had a short amount time together but it was full of fun memories just like that Halloween night in Tokyo. 
After meeting up at the hotel in the noon , we headed to the most famous/popular Ramen shop "ippudo" in NYC. We have bunch of them in Japan but I've been starting to miss Japanese food a lot since it's been more than 3 weeks since I left Japan. 

As we expected the place was packed with people and we had to wait for 2 hours for our ramen. Fortunately there was a bar inside the restaurant and we killed the time there having a few drinks.
By the time our table was finally ready, we were already a bit drunk. 
I ordered a ramen called "Shiromaru" , which is a salt based classic ramen. It was amazingly delicious that I thought it was totally worth to wait for 2 hours. 
Oh, by the way I lost my super comfy handmade scarf at the restaurant, which was very weird because it was sitting right in front of me as I was eating my ramen! :( 
Anyway service there was great as well and it was also great that I saw some japanese working there and a lot of clerks working there spoke Japanese that I almost felt that I was  back in Japan again. 
If you ever have a chance to go to NY ippudo is a MUST place to visit!

We got very drunk and it was past 2 when we got back to the hotel.
One of the most important things we wanted to do in NY was of course shopping! Dragging myself out of the bed in the morning was so hard but we couldn't really waste the day because we were both leaving NY in the afternoon .
To recover from hangover we  headed to a smoothie bar near the hotel and it helped a lot. 
We both got what we were looking for, which were shoes for me and swimsuits for her.  
I'm really happy that I met this girl that night Tokyo. She is such a beautiful, fun, smart, caring and independent girl. Although we live far away from each other( she's from Canada) I know for sure we'll meet again somewhere in the world :) 


キャットに初めて逢ったのは去年のハロウィン。一緒にべろんべろんになりながらも再会を約束して、本当にまた会えた!しかも今度はニューヨークで! カナダからわざわざ飛行機で来てくれて、私もボストンから4時間30分バスに乗ってニューヨークへ。
会う前はドキドキだったけど、会ってみたら久しぶりに会ったのが嘘かのようにおしゃべりが止まらなくてお酒が入る前から二人ともマシンガントーク。
夕方にホテルで落ち合って、タクシーに乗って一風堂NYヘ。 さすがニューヨークで大人気のラーメン店だけあって2時間待ち。 でも中にバーがあったからそこでラーメン待ちながら1,2杯。 お酒が入ってさらに楽しい!いかしたバーテンダーの兄ちゃんが妙に日本語が上手で、話してみると日本に1年留学してたみたい。店員さんも日本人も何人かいたし、接客の所々で日本語使っててなんだかアットホームな気分にさせてもらいました^^ 
2時間後には結構お酒が回ってたけど、待ちに待ったラーメン!白丸って言う一番ベーシックな塩ベースのラーメンを注文。キャットは赤丸。 とってもおいしかったし久々の本格的なラーメンでとても嬉しかった。
キャットと、そして意気投合したバーテンダーのノアと3人でNYのバーをあちこちはしごして、3軒目くらいで解散。 ホテルに着いたのは2時過ぎ。そのままベッドにダイブ! 
朝はもっと寝たかったけど夕方にはお互い帰らなきゃいけなかったから、2日酔いの体をなんとかベッドから引きずり出してとりあえずホテルを出発。半日もなかったけど2人ともお目当てのものをゲットできてよかった^^

短かったけどキャットのお陰で本当に濃い旅行になりました。 キャットは外見だけじゃなくて中身も素晴らしい女性。4,5カ国語が堪能で普段はキャビンアテンダントで世界中を飛び回ってる。そして暇があればどっかに旅行へ。 私とニューヨークで解散した後も一旦トロントに帰って、次の日すぐにメキシコへ彼とバケーションに行ったみたい。笑
次はスペインで、私が留学してる時に会う予定^^ 
出逢いってとても素敵だなって思えるNY旅行でした♡
