Daikanyama

An outfit I wore while in Daikanyama in Tokyo. A hip neighborhood in Tokyo, I made sure to dress to impress while I was there. Charles and I walked from Shibuya (about 15 to 20 minutes) and ran into a cute coffee shop (Monkey Cafe – go, especially if you love design and architecture), hit up some shops (pet stores included), bookstores, and ate at a brewery. A very thorough blog post will be up soon but until then, hope you’re enjoying my outfit posts!

Harajuku

Sale season has been unkind to my bank account. Take for example this amazing camel coat I found in Tokyo for about $30. Not that I really needed another coat in my closet BUT how could I not resist it? The leather boots was actually an older find from when I was in LA last summer. The dress was from Harajuku at the time I was there. In fact, I found it for about $7. I wish I could say that was all that I bought but I’d be lying.

But the upside is, more clothes means more outfit posts for the blog (and on Instagram – which you can find me there more than on here, at least for now). Until then, I have tons of projects to work on with brands and can’t wait to share them with you! Happy Thursday (or Friday wherever you are)!

Cropped Flares

Wander Hour - Cropped Flares

H&M Trend top (was on sale for $4.99 but sold out online), Zara mini flares ($29.90), H&M jacket, Zara shoes, Barneys New York backpack, and H&M Trend sunglasses (was on sale for $12.99 but sold out online)

Cropped Flares

When flares came back, I was a bit hesitant at first but after years of skinny jeans and then boyfriend jeans, I figured I give flares a try again. They were growing on me and I’m glad that they were. These cropped mini flares are so much fun and definitely a lot better than the flares I wore during my pre-teen years! They were only $29.90 so I don’t feel too bad about buying them but it looks like I’ll be investing in more styles like these!

To be honest though, I was a bit disappointed on the wash. It looks a bit different than the photos shown on Zara’s website. Not entirely different but I’m picky and it wasn’t what I was expecting. Nonetheless, I’ve worn these jeans quite a bit since I ordered them for the style alone. Now hunting down more cropped flares! Happy Tuesday!

EDIT: For reference, I’m a 5’5″

The Claremont

Lo & Sons Claremont camera bag 

The Claremont

Disclosure: Lo & Sons sent me this product and all reviews/opinions are of my own. 

In 2003, I discovered my passion for photography. My family and I headed south of the border to Mexico to have lunch. It was a crisp, autumn day and it rained quite often throughout the day. We were at a seaside restaurant ordering seafood (I remember eating a shrimp cocktail, which oddly enough, is not my favorite dish ever) and I saw how beautiful the beach looked with it’s overcast skies. I quickly grabbed my disposable camera and took a shot that was so beautiful. This became the moment I fell in love with travel photography.

Wander Hour - Mexico

Shot in Mexico in the year 2003 with a disposable camera

Over the course of 13 years, I have had several cameras from point and shoot cameras to DSLRs. In those 13 years, I’ve only had one camera bag which I neglected to use. You know, those awful bulky, Canon camera bags. I attempted to use it for awhile but as someone who always carries her DSLR no matter where she is heading, it wasn’t necessarily the most fashion-forward camera bag.

The Bag

When Lo & Sons recently contacted me and sent me a bag, I received this beautiful Claremont in sienna. It is by far, the chicest camera bag I’ve seen to date. The craftsmanship is spot on, the leather is amazing, and the padded interior keeps your DSLR safe. There are two memory cards slots for those photographers who shoot a ton of photos as much as I do and shooting RAW takes up so much space! Always having extra memory cards is vital for those who shoot full time. Enclosed is a divider which can be used to separate the body and a small lens. Best of all, the divider is removal so you can easily take this bag from camera bag to an everyday bag seen above when Charles and I took time off to spend it at the beach. Thank you Lo & Sons for the Claremont bag!

I have my eyes on the Catalina Deluxe Large Weekender in midnight ash to use as a carry on for traveling. I love the various compartments and how it fits comfortably on top of a suitcase! Can not wait to purchase it.

That circle bag makes an appearance again! It’s kind of like the perfect summer staple and easy to match with pretty much any summer outfits and dresses I have in my closet. And since I have two, I’ve been rotating between them.

Not much has happened since I’ve been home which is usually the case in between traveling. A time for me to recover mentally, physically, and especially financially. But it’s been great so far as I’ve gotten the chance to finally keep a consistent blogging schedule. After about a week of not doing anything though, I’m ready for some adventures around the island. Charles is finally off all weekend so I’m hoping for some adventures! Happy Wednesday!
