For the longest, over-the-knee boots have been in the spotlight. Though I've always wanted to own a good pair of OTK boots of my own, for some reason, it kind of slipped my radar. With the fashion seasons going through some strange times this year, I'm so excited to see some everyday-wearing trends come full circle. I've always been a big fan of knee-high boots. Something about tall boots that aren't too dominating for any outfits yet still serves as a statement just makes a lot more sense for my capsule fall wardrobe.

It just happened that I was in a fisherman village in Kyoto this past week so this outfit was definitely channeling some fisherman style. If you've been following me for a while, then you probably have already seen this pair of color-block pants styled a few different ways. Hopefully, this will inspire you to dig up some of your favorite pieces to refresh with a pair of knee-high boots.

The comeback of biker shorts was something completely out of hindsight for me. To say it is timely would be a little inappropriate because it's not like we all were looking forward to a 2020 spent mostly indoors and leaving our homes just to throw out the trash or pick up groceries.

Biker shorts took a bit to grow on me especially because it was something I felt too casual to incorporate into a "going-out" outfit. Fast forward to fall and as things are starting to resume here in Tokyo, biker shorts are my go-to for oversized t-shirts and sweaters. Usually, I'd pair them with my usual sneakers, but they are surprisingly chic with a pair of knee-high boots.

Officially almost out of days to post summer outfits from Tokyo, but just wanted to document this one since it's one that I wore at least 8 times in the past 2 months. There is no other neutral pairing, when it comes to outfits, that I can say I love more than a tee and some comfortable shorts. In previous summers, I've always gravitated towards denim cutoffs, but lately, I find linen shorts to be my go to. I especially love the fact that their pockets are so much roomier and the waist and cut makes it a little more forgiving for those extra fries that I always end up having with a side of bubble tea.

This year's summer was definitely unlike any other. I mostly refrained from being outside until late July, and by this time, it was always scorching hot. That said, I also didn't feel right to overdress or anything whenever I had to go out.

It kind of made it the perfect timing to rediscover some closet staples of mine. This leopard satin skirt is so old that I don't even remember where it's from, but by now, I've pretty much worn it all of the ways I could think of. Yet somehow, it always seem to fit any new tank that I introduce to my rotating wear-at-home-stash. Anyone else's amount of tank top suddenly went up during these quarantine days too?

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?
