In retrospect, if I had known the Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden was this beautiful—just serene and so dreamy—I probably would have dressed a little bit differently. I would have dressed less casually, probably, and maybe not have my varsity jacket and patch jeans on. I definitely felt like I stuck out like a sore thumb amongst all the green and atmosphere of serenity of the garden.
Then again, as if I would ever have the guts to wear any high-heeled footwear when travelling to a different country! I would be walking way too much.
I would have loved to wear a darling long-sleeved dress, maybe something ethereal and daintier. But when you travel to a foreign country—one with a completely different weather than your country's—with limited luggage and living out of a suitcase (or two), you have to make do!
I felt good, comfortable and most importantly warm in this outfit. I wish I could walk around in heels all day long like all these classy Japanese girls (some of them are so chic it hurts my teeth) but my attachment to sneakers is too strong. Also, look at that golden hour lighting!
