These pants!!!

I went crazy a few weeks back and got myself some Irish green leggings type pants. At the store, they seem toned down enough hidden in a myriad of other colorful items. However once I got them home, I became worried. How can I wear Irish green pants? How will I style them?
I do not own anything Irish green. I like my greens to be olive and a little bit khaki, in other words I like my green subtle. So why on earth I went and got Irish green pants? Maybe because I wanted a change? Maybe because I was influenced? Whatever the reason, there I was stuck with green pants I had no idea how to wear.
I decided to google the pants to have an idea of how other people were wearing them. Soon enough I found two pictures of bloggers who rocked the pants with trench coats. They look good but I wanted more. I wrote a fave blogger who loves green about how to style the pants and she said that she was going to get back to me soon.
Anyway, I did not want to wait any longer because those pants are thic…

Are we there yet? (the end of cold weather I mean...)

I had a fun week with my son out of school for Easter holiday. On Monday, I went on a shopping spree at H&M (mostly for my business), on Wednesday, I organized a picnic at the park with some other mom friends. But Friday was the highlight when I took a trip to the Zoo with my best Japanese girlfriend and our kids. We drove down to Zoorasia, another zoo in Kanagawa area. Unlike Nogeyama which is free and small, Zoorasia is this big park full of interesting animals, lots of playgrounds for the kiddies and plenty of resting areas and restaurants. We spend the entire day there. It was so much fun to discover new animals like the Ocelot, the Clouded leopard, the Okapi and to learn about the life of Chimpanzees.
Anyway I wanted to be simple and comfy as I knew we would walk a lot so I wore this:

White scarf - Walmart
Jacket - Thrifted
Cardigan - Gap
Turtle neck tee - Sexy Miser
Jeans - Thrifted
Shoes - H&M
Bags - Seoul market and Daiso

In full bloom

Today was one of those other great warm days you wished could last all year around. The sun was out, the sky was blue; not too hot, not cold at all. It was one those days, you would love spending out in a park, or baking under the sun on the seacoast. Or at least I would.
I did not have anything special, just the ordinary usual boring life of a housewife. But since it was a nice day, I wanted to look nice. So I decided to wear this:

White scarf - Walmart
Jacket - Shimamura
Wrap cardigan - Gap
White tee- Home's
Skirt - G.U.
Shoes -H&M

I bought this skirt on impulse over a month ago at G.U. (Uniqlo other brand). I have been looking for something as good as my favorite black maxi skirt from H&M. This skirt is right up the alley with the breezy air feel it gives me. Plus it is a full skirt unlike the black one. The only problem I have with it is that it is not floor length. But I am going to make it work anyway.

"Neon coral" (or Orange as the hubby said) flats and my…
