Today’s post is a small round-up of a few of my coordinates from this month! There isn’t actually a lot because I spent a lot of time at home, which means just T-shirts and shorts and occasionally staying in my pyjamas.
The combination of a jacket and skirt is simple, so I like using it as a template and just changing it up with different pieces each time. I wore my prized denim blouson from Lowrys Farm. It was 70% off when I got it! Hooray for end-of-season sales. And then there’s my black skirt from Taobao. This one’s easy to mix with anythingFlare skirts are my favourite because they’re cute the way they stick out.
This was from when I filmed my last dance cover (here!). For once I decided to have a change from my black shoes, but I wore the same skirt. In Japanese magazines they always use the term kimawashi (着まわし), which is when you keep one piece of clothing while changing up the rest of the outfit. For someone like me it’s probably just a nicer term for outfit repeater.
This time the kimawashi point is the cardigan (it’s become like a game of clothes tag). I was in the mood for knee-high socks that day—so on they wentI don’t often wear them because it’s so hot out and kind of mad to wear them around in oven-grade weather. But knee-high socks are great way to dress up a bit more without being tacky.
And back in the blouson! This time it went with a dress, which is full of flowers and also from Lowrys Farm. A clean, monotone print for springIt’s been a long time since I wore a dress out. Once in a while I attempt to make more girly choices (Skirts and dresses are different. They’re different).
But the best is still this one, I think. My cat sweater!
Cutest sweater I’ve ever owned. It’s so warm and cuddly, like a real catI fell in love the moment I saw it. Because there really isn’t anything more adorable than a kitty wrapped around your shoulders, even if it’s made of wool. Especially if it’s made of wool? Of course I love real cats, but you can’t wear them out to the shopping centre. This is the next best thing.
Those were what I wore out during my vacation month! During school time I wore shorts almost everyday, so I’ve been trying to wear more skirts to change things up a bit.
I know a lot of of my coordinates look like they shouldn’t be worn out in the kind of weather we have here (i.e. summer). But there’s also air-conditioningJackets and knits are still my best friends. On the other hand though, I can’t wait for sweater weather to return.
