new york, new york

A speedy hello from one of my favourite cities in the world! Here again and decked out in mustard tones to complement the yellow cab frenzy around New York. The weather has been comfortable, and when you’re jet lagged and already heading out around 7AM every day, the lighting works in your favour.


Our first stop was Top of the Rock that I’ve been to many times, both in the early mornings and during sunset, and the view still overwhelms me! There is something special about New York that makes you believe the sky is the limit. See you on Instagram!

 

 

sakura

Admittedly I’ve been chasing cherry blossoms ever since I got into Tokyo, to the annoyance of my brother, so of course I made my way to Shinjuku Gyoen that has one of the most beautiful Japanese gardens in the city. Although it is a vast park with different garden sections, I only ended up finding one sakura tree in proper bloom. Better than nothing, I told myself, as I waited for all the tourists to clear before managing the above shots. Worth it though, right?

We took to Tokyo’s ‘kawaii’ capital next, and as expected the place was mighty packed on a weekend. I love people-watching around Harajuku and grabbing crepes stuffed with brownies at Takeshita Street, and get this: if you don’t ‘gram the biggest fairy floss ever from Totti Candy Factory, it didn’t happen.

こんにちは from the brilliant Tokyo! Here for the fourth time and of course you must know this is one of my favourite cities in the world. In a way, the city never sleeps, and neither do its neon lights and constant bustling roads that I surprisingly never tire of. Kyoto was a little out of the way this time, so we paid a visit to the Torii Gates Tunnel at Hie Shrine in Akasaka instead.

 

 

Wearing – Marc Jacobs spotted faux fur coat in bone and black with parrot brooch from Shopbop / Newsboy cap from Shibuya 101 – shop similar Eugenia Kim elyse hat in champagne and Brixton fiddler cap / Leather knee-high boots – shop similar Stuart Weitzman reserve tall boots and Jenni Kayne riding boots 
In truth, I’ve sat on this gorgeous faux fur coat for weeks, waiting and saving it for an ideal opportunity to sashay in around. When this spontaneous Tokyo trip came along, I knew the torii gates at Hie Shrine would provide the most perfect of backdrops, and truly it did. Throwing a quick fun fact your way: the purpose of torii gates is to divide our world and the spirit world, and are said to be influenced by other Asian cultures that have similar gate structures near holy sites. You must admit though, they do add an immense sense of wonder to the Japanese landscape.
P.S Shopbop is having a special sale on best sellers for the next 3 days!
