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.

Grateful / 11-122019

January 23, 2020

Couple under large red fall tree in Tokyo Hamarikyu Garden, Tokyo in the fall, autumn in Tokyo, Japan travels in the fall - FOREVERVANNY

This has taken longer than it should since I'm reporting November and December of 2019, almost at the end of January 2020. I don't really remember much of what my thoughts and intentions were for those months, but I wrote down 'Grateful' as the title then, and it still seems fitting now.

It's been quite a breeze quite honestly. With the year closing out, I felt an overwhelming mix of emotions, which made it extremely difficult for me to put it all down on paper, I mean, screen. At this point, Thanksgiving and Christmas are both any regular days for me since I don't find myself fitting in any of the normcore activities for those holidays anymore. I did get to spend a day of giving thanks back to someone who's completely made life so much more interesting for me this year by grabbing a good omakase lunch with him. For Christmas, it felt weird that I was away from home for too long, so I flew back to see my mom and sister for a quick week or so.

As my time in Tokyo is coming to an end this year, I'm not sure what I can promise with this blog in the coming months. Seeing how inadequately I've kept up with these monthly recaps makes me embarrassed to even think about attempting them for 2020. I hope that wherever I end up in the coming months, I'll always take a little time to revisit this little corner of the internet that fully belongs to me.

With that said, to anyone that might come across this- I hope that the new year is full of health, happiness, and luck for you.

Catching Up / 09-102019

I'll keep this one short since I've officially run out of excuses for these delayed monthly posts. To recall from my very very faint memory of September and October, I can only say that there was a lot of moving around. If you were following along, you'd know that Shun and I took a quick Euro trip to visit Portugal early September. We came back and lived hermit life to let our financials recover due to the crazy expenses incurred from the rough end to the trip. In October, a very close friend of mine, Zoe, came to visit for a couple of weeks. While showing her around and playing tourist with her, I also got to do a quick getaway to Kyoto with her as well.

As there are only November and December left in the year, I hope that I can deliver them before 2020 arrives.
