You know how when you are so into something in the beginning and your interest starts to fade away towards the end? Thats what happened to me when I got to into documenting my first day of the trip that I just got lazier in capturing and recording everything about the trip, which is why there are no other pictures aside from the pictures of my outfit from that day. This could possibly be the last set of photos of my outfit during my vacation.

If you follow me on instagram, you've probably seen this outfit. This was the outfit I wore on the third day I suppose, I picked something more casual, a little white dress. Oh i can't even begin to tell you how much I love this dress. I have always been the fan of something simple yet versatile. This dress is both casual and dressy at the same time, it is something you can throw on during a chilled day or a more posh event. My one go-to-trick whenever I am wearing a plain casual piece is to chuck on some gold necklaces in different lengths, in this way it makes it seems like I've put a lil bit more of effort to my outfit.

Summer in Tokyo - Day 1

Hi from Tokyo! We pretty much spent the first day here lounging around in the apartment and strolling around the streets of Ginza, trolling for snacks and super cheap clothing. There seems to be a huge sale going on in almost every store here, which made me go a lil bit crazy honestly! Even though it's summer here, the weather has been super great so far, its better than what I expected, no unbearable heat and all that shit. Which means I can actually layer up my outfit without constantly dripping sweat. I have just been obsessed with kimonos these days, I just feel like they really brings the outfit together. Not only they are thin and light weight in general, they also make the perfect garments for layering during summer.

Homemade Lemon Tart

Staying home means that I'd be constantly looking for food and nothing beats the joy of cooking or baking whatever you want. A lemon tart, in my case.

Homemade peri-peri chickens

Lately I've been craving for some Nando's peri-peri chicken, so i decided to look up for some recipes and tried to recreate it today for lunch. I also chopped and baked some potatoes as a side dish, you can never go wrong with some good old baked potato wages. Of course they wouldn't be peri-peri chickens if they are not doused with Nando's special peri-peri sauce, I got the mild one when I went grocery shopping yesterday since I have low resistance towards hot food. I was quite surprise to be able to find the sauce tho, to be honest. It tasted really good on the chips!
Peri-peri chicken recipe is from Sorted Food.

Went for the old school overlay of plaid shirt which can never go wrong. Though you have to be careful while overlaying several garments as it can make you appear bulkier than you are, which is why I had to tuck my tee in to make it look more fitted than it already was and show some waistline. Also, say hello again to my fav pair of booties! Its very hard to keep myself away from them as they seem to match anything I wear perfectly. In addition to that, they also make the perfect summer boots since there are cut outs on the sides, hence ventilation. I know it is not much of a difference wether its summer or not here in my town, but one thing I can tell you is that it has been wayy hotter than the usual.
