Fashion Files: Summer 2012

This is kind of a late post since summer is about to end soon. But I just wanna share some summer fashion ideas. Well actually I'm a bit frustrated that I still can't wear something light here in Japan because it's Spring season, and the weather is just crazy. It's hard to choose what to wear due to unpredictable weather. I can't risk wearing shorts without tights underneath because even if it's quite hot in the mid-afternoon, the temperature drops at late afternoon. But since I'm not staying here so long, I don't actually invest on winter/spring clothes while I'm here because my cousin and aunt have a really awesome closet. I choose to buy clothes here which I can wear in the Philippines, given it's weather.

Two weeks ago, when my cousin and I have gone shopping in Tokyo, we were not able to buy much pieces from Shibuya 109 because almost all the brands there were Japanese brands and the clothes weren't so wearable in a hot weather. All I was able to buy there were 2 pairs of cute sunglasses for me and my BFF. But when my cousin and I raided the 5-storey Forever 21 shop, we were able to find lots of good stuff! And after putting everything together, I realized that we bought were so SUMMER!:)

Theme: FLOWER POWER!

 Price Range of Tops: 980 Yen to 1,580 Yen

 button-up high-low sheer top

 button-up sleeveless sheer top

 button-up/tied down sheer top w/ lace details

 lace tank top with flower print

tank top which I got from Avail (one of the shops in Chino City, Nagano)

And to match these floral tops are my cute shorts from Forever 21 too.


Theme: STYLISH SHORTS 

 Price Range of Shorts = 1,280 Yen to 1,980 Yen

faded shorts w/ lace detail
(This is the only shorts here that isn't Forever 21, but I got it from Shimamura in Suwa City, Nagano)

 vertical striped pink/blue shorts with off-white belt

 faded shorts with floral belt

 vertical striped blue high waist shorts with button details

semi-wrecked black shorts
(Got this from Forever 21 in the Philippines last year)

And when you put them all together, you can have comfy yet fashionable summer style!:)

 accessorize with a cute pair of pink shades

 Accessorize with a pink necklace w/ feather details
(Since my cousin was wearing it, I just took a photo of her)

Spaghetti strapped top and pink necklace. You can wear a pink or white cardigan too.
I have shortage of T-shirts now. Hope this does justice.)

 If you wanna show the floral belt, then choose a less printed top.

Wear a dark plain tube or spaghetti or tank top inside. 

 Cute outfit that can be paired with tan flats or wedges.

 Or wear it with plain white shirt.
(I just don't have my white shirt with me now)

Use accessories and a polo/cardigan to create layers

And here are more good summer finds:

From a Japanese brand "XO XO" in Shibuya 109

 Forever 21 Dress at 1,250 Yen

 Pink and Gold bangles from Shimamura (Suwa City, Nagano)

 Roxy Flipflops
(I actually love Roxy flipflops because the're stylish, very light yet durable. I bought my first pair 2 years ago and even if I've been using it a lot of time, they still look good.)

This is more of a "spring" bag actually; but for me, it's ok to use it anytime.

It's hard to live with my shopaholic aunt and cousin because whenever the three of us shop together, there's no such word as "savings" haha!:)) If only we have been saving the money we spend for shopping every weekend here, we could have afforded a Hong Kong weekend trip!:))
