Spring in My Step

Hello from Japan! Today were headed to Kyoto from Tokyo and I’m excited for a change of pace and a new-to-me experience tonight — staying in a ryokan. Stay tuned on Instagram stories!

In this post, I’m sharing two outfits from Tokyo — one at my absolute favorite place to get sushi and one on the go (shot earlier this morning!) at Tokyo station. I ordered these blush pink sneakers right before the trip and they’ve been on repeat over the last week! I’ve styled them two ways — two outfits that will work whether you’re simply taking a trip to Trader Joe’s or traveling across the globe.

My Favorite Trip So Far

When Merritt and I booked a trip to Japan back in 2016, I thought I was forever checking one country off of my bucket list. Japan was on my “someday” list, but definitely not at the top of my travel list back then. Merritt had texted me asking if I wanted to plan a trip with her and once we discussed some dates and found very cheap flights, we booked immediately! I had a bunch of back-to-back travel that fall and the trip to Japan in November really snuck up on me, but before you know it, I had touched down in Tokyo and was nervously excited about what the next few weeks had in store!

Friday Finds || Vol. 2, Week 16

Greetings from Tokyo! Hope you’re enjoying your weekend, friends. Apologies this is going up a day or two after Friday, I’m all out of sorts on what day it is since Japan is 14 hours ahead of Chicago. And to make matters worse, since I’ve been in Japan, I’ve been SUPER sick. Not trying to be a Debbie Downer, but this is for sure the most sick I’ve ever been while traveling, that’s for sure. I thought I was catching a little Coachella cold last Sunday and Monday, but it’s proceeded to get worse and worse everyday. If I had to guess, I think I have some sort of sinus infection mixed with an upper respiratory infection… Let’s just say the 13 hour flight here was not pretty.

Color Crush: Poppy Red

I honestly can’t believe it’s snowed again in Chicago this week… Remember last April when we actually had a pretty gorgeous spring season?! I’m counting down the minutes until warmer weather arrives! As I’ve been shopping for spring and summer clothes and accessories, I keep being drawn to this poppy red color. I don’t normally wear a lot of red (hardly any at all!), but it’s been fun to switch it up and add a few pops of color to my closet.

Up in the Air

Spring always seems to be the season where travel picks up for me! I was home for a mere 36 hours between California for Coachella and heading to Japan today. (I’m currently writing this from 35,000 feet so I’m either still in the air or have landed in Japan by the time you’re reading this!)
