When we first arrived in Tokyo, the first morning we went right to the busy Shinjuku station, got a coffee, and people watched during rush hour. I was surprised to see that a large majority of women (of all ages!) were wearing these flowy, comfy looking pants that looked like skirts. They were wearing them casually with cotton tees and sneakers, and dressed up with heels and a blouse. So of course, I had to get myself a pair :)
And I wore them a lot! Seen below in Ueno & Odaiba (I did not, actually, hold my pants like this for the entire trip):
I had seen similar pants in stores around me before my trip but ignored them because…surprise? they’re actually pants? I was turned into a believer after seeing so many women rock them in Tokyo, and now I can’t wait to style these different ways.
I also got this amazing cat shirt from Nya Shop, a small boutique shop near the station. I’m in love! I bought the hat in Tokyo, too ^^
I have a feeling I’m going to be wearing this outfit a lot this fall. Do you have a go-to item to wear as the weather cools down?
Whew – I’m back from Tokyo! And missed posting this yesterday…whoops :) I’ve taken some time to wrap my head around being back and getting back into a routine – always weird after a long vacation. And I feel like it’s extra strange that it’s almost Halloween – where did October go?? Obviously Halloween is one of my favorite days (hello costumes)…so here’s a few things this week to get into that spooky spirit:
Bat Balloons Oooh…spooky! I wish I was throwing a Halloween party because these huge bat balloons are amazing!
Overwatch Update This Mercy skin is everything…I don’t normally play her but I’m really hoping she comes in one of my crates. Which Halloween skin is your favorite?
Witch’s Brew Cocktail How fab does this look? It uses both Viniq and dry ice…I really want to try this out. Head over to Pizzazzerie to check out the recipe!
What are you most excited for this Halloween? Will you be hosting or attending any fun parties?
I don’t know about you, but where I live we’re getting teased with the first hint of fall, and I couldn’t be happier. I love layering up and finally being able to enjoy hot coffee :) And of course, fall clothes are the best! I teamed up with StyleWe to find some great fall pieces. I’m looking forward to lots of black & whites, neutrals, and pop color. StyleWe has lots of great finds, from basics to designer clothes, and they have some interesting suede suites and sexy dresses. Here are some of my favorites!

What are you most excited about for fall?
So I’ve been pretty quiet lately (both in blogging and cosplay), but I’ve been saving up and spending a lot of time planning a dream vacation: Tokyo! I’m going in a month and am beyond excited.
But for as much planning I’ve been doing, I’m still looking for recommendations! Where to eat, where to shop, where to go, etc. So if you’ve been to Tokyo (or have a place you’ve always wanted to visit there) – let me know! I’m so excited to experience everything I can, so any tips or recommendations are super :)
If you’ve been seeing my posts over the past few weeks, you’ll know this isn’t my first time posting something related to the game Overwatch, though it is my first outfit post!
I picked up both the Nerf This! tee and the bunny tights at Connecticon last month, and I’ve really been loving the combo together. (I did get asked on instagram though, and I’m so sorry but I can’t remember the vendor who sold this :< ) DVa is my favorite character to play (& Lucio!), and she’s so adorable, too. This inspired outfit is a lot of fun to wear, and the bunny tights really pulled it together for me.
Who is your favorite Overwatch character, and what do you think they’d wear if they went “casual”?
