DIY scallop skirt (buy similar), similar petite gingham shirtHunter Tour boots
Burberry trench coat (similar here or here in petites for less), Talbots navy tights

Happy Tuesday! Just a quick post today sharing this easy ensemble I wore last week. My skirt is old and I hemmed the scallops myself, but I also own this similar version (also sold here) that’s been restocked from last year! That one is made in a sturdy, stretchy knit material and is fully lined – see it on me in sz US2.

On another note, we’re currently planning some travel to Tokyo and possibly Singapore and Bali – all spots where Nick and I had really wanted to go after our wedding last year! We didn’t go on a honeymoon due to our schedules at the time, but are really looking forward to taking some trips this year. I’d love to hear about any must-visit places, and of course your favorite recommendations for where to eat and things to do in those areas!

    I'm planning a trip to Tokyo myself, and I found a spa just outside Tokyo where you can bathe in green tea, wine, or even ramen! If you're a fan of Hayao Miyazaki films, the Ghibli Museum is a must see, although I'm partial because I learned to walk in the adjoining park years ago 🙂

    Ichiran is tasty and they have locations in the US.
    However, I must mention that Ichiran is Fukuoka tonkotsu ramen!

    For Tokyo-
    All I have is a business card from a bar where they do close up magic- amazing! Phone number is 3571-4054-4056- maybe your hotel could help you out? We needed to call in advance because the bar only fits about 15 people at a time. It's in Ginza somewhere..
    And like a lot of things in Tokyo, it's a little hidden.
    And you should check out Kappabashi street- they sell lots of pottery and plates to restaurants. Beautiful bowls and plastic imitation food.
    Shinjuku golden Gai is also a must see and I would throw the robot show in there as a thing 100pct for tourists but also 100pct bizarrely worth it..

    My Tokyo recs:
    – HARBS (amazing strawberry cakes)
    – Sushi Dai
    – Ichiran for ramen (cool experience; can skip Ippudo)
    – Strawberry mochi from some shop in Ginza that’s located on one of the main streets. So vague, but I don’t remember the name

    Lemme know if you want to see pics or is thinking of visiting other parts of Japan 🙂

    I personally don’t think Singapore is worth visiting. Well, let me amend that. If you’re making multi-stops, put Tokyo last. The other places will probably pale in comparison and you’ll wish you had just stayed in Japan. That’s how I felt at least!
