I've always been about keeping it casual and simple. The older I get, the more I'm drawn and invested into timeless pieces, not just in their style but how it works for my personal life. Trousers are a classic, but finding a pair that I can see myself wearing two or three years down the line, took me some time. A pair of good trousers for me took a while to source, then altered. But alas, here we are.

I came across these vintage Chanel trouser at a vintage shop in Tokyo last year. After thinking on them for about a week or two I decided to treat myself (quite contrary to popular beliefs, yes great vintages in Tokyo are abundant, but can be quite expensive as well). When I first got it, I had to put it through a thorough dry cleaning. After that, I found a tailor so that I can get them hemmed to my height.

A good way to think about whether your clothes is worth it, is to always think about: will you pay to dry clean it weekly or have them fixed if they got damaged?

In the years that I've had this blog and through the number of posts that I've shared- I didn't think that there would come a day where I would be starting off by saying the most generic email opening: I hope that you are doing well. I really mean it.

Somehow two months have passed since the world was flipped upside down, and 2020 skipped all of Spring. Wherever you are, I hope that you have something to at least look forward to whenever it may be that we get out of this, together.

For now, I wanted to share this quick outfit that I wore literally around the block (since you guys know that construction sites have always been my aesthetic anyway). I stumbled upon this top via Simonett's Instagram not too long ago, and it was something that I bought within an hour of thinking about it (which is super rare for me). This 'Nanu Top' is so versatile because it's a knitted material. I love that it's the perfect transition piece at the moment as it's warm enough for a chilly morning, but cropped enough to bare some skin especially with a pair of high waisted skinny jeans. There's actually a multitude of ways to wear this crop knitted top thanks to its unique construction and it's a piece that I can't wait to later with comes the fall again.

Just like that another cherry blossom season came and left so fleetingly. I wish I could say it was beautiful to enjoy the blooms without all of the tourists like every other year, but instead, it felt a little empty. It's a weird time in the world, but it's also the perfect time to fully reflect on everything that comes and goes without a warning. It has made me worry about the future, but so grateful for the present, now, more than ever.

I, of course, will miss these glorious days during this time of the year when all I need is a sweater to be comfortable walking around, but I also can't complain about having more cozy things to wear at home in a few weeks when I'll be cold with the AC on at home. Hoping that this made you feel a little better about all the sweaters that you probably bought but didn't get the chance to wear out either.

Until next Spring.... or chilly summer nights!

Plaid for spring, easy spring outfits, beige trousers with black top, square neck tops, Tokyo street style, spring transitional outfits - FOREVERVANNY.comHoping to maintain a bit of a routine, I'm turning back to the blog to share some quick outfit updates and trend forecasting for the upcoming Spring season. The world might seem a bit upside right now, but I know that this will soon pass. It may get worse before it gets better, and once it does, all of the outfits we've been saving will finally be worn with positivity.

As usual, I haven't added much to my rotating wardrobe, and pretty much just transition some winter pieces to work for slightly warmer weather. For a quick afternoon for grabbing coffee, I threw on a simple square neck ribbed knit top, cargo trousers in a neutral beige, everyday sneakers, and this plaid/houndstooth coat that I've been layering with since I got it back in December.

Some Spring trends that I think will be quite prominent for Spring happens to be some of the key components of the pieces that I'm wearing. Talking about square neck tops and sweaters, baggy trousers, and plaid/houndstooth patterns. Of course, I've been seeing more gold and pearl jewelry all over as well (but let's be real, gold and pearl are as timeless as it can get).

I don’t know about you but this year has started on a really rough patch. Spring is just around the corner but it doesn’t feel like it at all. The weather is still pretty chilly in Tokyo despite the cherry blossom forecast predicting an even earlier blooming season than all of the years before.

Trust me, underneath this light pleated skirt, was some layering of heat-tech pieces for necessary insulation. And then some extra accessories, like wool socks and this cashmere scarf on top because I’m always finding that my ankles and neck get really cold these days (might be my age but I’m starting to understand why my mom always told me to cover up when I was in my teens leaving the house with a deep v-neck on in below freezing temps).

For me, scarves are just one of those things that can be costly, yet can add a lot of simple outfits to refresh them. The best time to grab scarves deals is probably when the end of winter sales are happening. Below is a quick round-up of some scarves that I'd definitely take advantage to buy during this amazing Shopbop Sale taking place this week.

When it comes to color-blocking, these pants are still considered on the safe side. But black, white, and beige are just a trifecta combination that makes these pants the perfect piece for my kind of wardrobe. They bring a little edge, but keep it quite low-key and casual. You've seen me wear these in the summertime, but here's how they look in the winter.
