I've been seeing the whole sweater-over-button-up-shirt look in the bloggy world lately, so I figured I'd try it out myself. I quite liked it, and it kept me warm! Did you guys catch those awesome yellow cupcake socks? Great find at Forever 21... what treasures.

I wore this outfit while exploring Shimokitazawa, a neighborhood in Tokyo with lots of little cafes, bookstores, record shops, and vintage clothing shops. It was so much fun walking down the small alleys and wandering around aimlessly. We ate at such a cute cafe and a wonderful pancake restaurant... SO GOOD. I wouldn't mind living in this part of town someday...

  10. I adore this outfit! Love how you wore the collared shirt. And those socks are too cute. Sadly, all my really cute socks are too short to peek out. :(
