Five Favourite Outfits from Japan

Bet you thought I was done with my Japan posts lol. I’ve decided to have my last one be about some of my favourite photos and outfits from our trip. I brought a big bunch of clothes and put together a combination of comfy outfits that were perfect since we were always out and about everyday.

Stripes and Shorts

On this particular day it was really hot. I’m talking 28 degrees. Heat that I’m not used to and spent a lot of time complaining about on our downtime. This definitely called for a summery outfit. I did bring my floral dress I love, but it has a habit of blowing up even in the smallest breezes, and I didn’t want to risk that. A red and white stripy shirt, denim shorts, black sneakers and a ponytail seemed like a good choice. Perfect for walking around all day. The red also went nicely with flowers that popped up on our walk to Meguro River.

Grey Days and Black Overalls

While we had some scorcher days in Japan, we also had mild ones. One Sunday, it was overcast all day and the occasional showers would come. However, it was still like 22 degrees, so it just made the day mild and pleasant. This was one of the few times I could wear my long black overalls, so I took the opportunity. Underneath, I wore my grey Superdry shirt, and paired them all with my trusty sneakers. I got a lot of use out of those sneakers in Japan. This outfit ended up being perfect for our trip to the garden. My overalls have a million pockets, so all the pamphlets, paper and rubbish I accumulated could just sit in my pockets.

Exploring in a Blue Jumpsuit

I bought this jumpsuit impulsively a few days before the Japan trip. I figured it’d come in handy for warmer days, and it did. It had been dreary colder days in Tokyo at the beginning of our trip, but once we went to Kyoto, the weather did a 180 and we were thrown in 30 degrees weather. The jumpsuit is made out of really breathable material so I was very comfy and not stuffy. The top dips a bit lower than I’m comforatble with so I threw my stripy shirt on underneath. I really like how this outfit came together. It was comfortable for the super hot day, and still pleasant as it cooled down into the evening.

Blue All Over

As you can see, it was another crazy hot day here. I originally wasn’t going to wear my blue cardi, but I always like to err on the side of caution. My overpacking habits are hard to override. In the end though, it all worked out. I did notice that all my clothes I chose were blue. Most of my closet is blue actually. It’s just a nice colour. Anyway, I was very comfy and not too hot during our day at Universal Studios. I do wish I had something yellow though since I am a proud Hufflepuff member, but I don’t actually think I own anything yellow.

Rainy Days and Combat Boots

As mentioned earlier, our first few days in Tokyo were rainy and a bit cold. The lowest temperature we had was around 13, which isn’t that bad when you’re used to New Zealand weather. This was the only day we had to bring rainjackets and big boots as it did rain decently. The weather didn’t dampen our moods at all though, but I’m still glad I did decide to bring these items in the end otherwise I would have been very cold.

There you have it. Some of my favourite outfits from our trip to Japan! We did end up having a whole range of weather on some days, but most were quite warm. Something we got used to, before flying back to New Zealand and landing in winter. I miss those 28 degree days now that we’re stuck in everlasting wind and rain!
