I went to Yokohama to run some errands and by the time I got home I was sweating like a pig (why do they say that, I never seen pigs sweat.Then again, I have never been close enough to a pig to check).
Thank GOD I wore something breezy.
Here is what I whore:
My son snapped this pic while I was giving him instructions
Scarf - Jerusalem Halal Meats
Oversized tee or top - H&M
Red orange pants - H&M
Sandals - Dollhouse via Ross
Bag - Some random shop in Seoul
I also liked what I wore yesterday, although I did not take pics. I went to Sakuragicho to meet with my friend Chrissy from Taiwan. She came to Japan with her parents and decide to rekindle with her friends from college. We were tight back then bonding over Sex and the City and clothes and boys. On that day we went shopping at Collete Mare and had fun checking stuff out. Then we went to the park next to my house to watch Fireworks joined by a Japanese former college mate. Japanese Summer equals Fireworks. Back when my hubby and I just married, we would go anywhere to check them out. But now with kids, it is so much work with the huge crowd, we do not attend them. How lucky that the park next door provides a great view minus the crowd.
I wore my flower printed shirt from Thai and my white pants. It was a no fuss, no muss outfit.

These past weeks, that is all I have been wearing: easy to put on, breezy outfits. If I could, I would walk around wearing short shorts and barely there tees. But I can't so I stick to maxi dresses, maxi skirts, and tee shirts with not so heavy pants.
Summer is over for me. My son will start school next week which means that I will be busy taking him to school but also socialising with the mothers who will all be back to Japan. I had a great Summer, doing activities with the kiddies but also experimenting with my outfits and my blogs. I gained a lot of weight but that did not stop me from stepping out of my comfort zone (jeans and flats). Come to think of, I only wore my Mummy jeans (aka my blue skinny jeans) once. Every other time I was out, I wore maxi skirts, maxi dresses, bold prints and colors. I could not be prouder of myself. I just hope that by the time school starts again, I will not fall back into my mommy ways and wear the same variation of the same outfit.
