    is a virtual space where Liyana Aris documents her evolving modest personal style, which is based on the art of looking casually stylish while still remaining modest and doing it all on a budget; about 93% of her closet are filled with affordable things. (PS: The remaining 7% has a lot to do with her secret addiction to Adidas shoes and her occasional splurges on discounted high-end bags and clutches, shhh.) [+]

    Back In Tokyo, Baby

    Hiii Tokeeeeeeeyyyooooo!
    Can't believe I'm back here, guys.


    Shah and I were waiting to check into our hotel at a coffee shop when I saw this boy holding a leopard-print skateboard (badass) AND a manly black clutch (super badass) under his arm, with a pair of two-toned shoes that I totally want in my own closet. This is definitely the thing about Tokyo that I will miss the most : witnessing that unique Tokyo brand of street style first-hand.

    By the way, men here go around wearing manbags and clutches, and they werk it, guys.

    Each and every time after my Tokyo trip, I always said I don't know if I would ever come back. And it's really the truth; each and every trip was not pre-planned. I'm very, very lucky to have a husband who can afford to bring me along on some of his work trips overseas (and to not have anyone else to be responsible for, like a child), fo sho, but I don't get to follow him on every single trip (Atlanta and Seoul were some of them), which is why I'm excited every single time that I do get to go with him.

    That being said, we are pretty sure that this will be our last trip to Tokyo. This will also be our shortest trip, so I'm trying to soak it all in as I go!

    Not to say that we might never ever come back herewho knows, maybe in 5 or 10 years, I'll be back here roaming the streets of Tokyo again.

    Another reason I am SUPER excited to be back here in Japan at this time: cherry blossom blooming season! When I wrote the post on flowers of Tokyo, I had no idea that I would actually get to witness the sakura season this year!

    Never stopped counting my blessings <3

    I'm don't think I'll have the time to blog about Tokyo while I'm here, but my pre-Tokyo posts will go up first. In the meantime, I'm going to try and keep up on my Instagram, so don't forget to follow me there!
