Hey everyone! Wow first off I’m so happy with how many of you liked my first look for the Winter 10 x 10 Challenge. If you’re getting here late, check out my first post about the challenge here and check out Look 1 as well!
Today was SO MUCH EASIER than yesterday. I think maybe because I was mentally prepared to make Look 2 and I’m not sure…. today I feel like I’m in a much better place than I was yesterday. I got really motivated from everyone else’s blogs and Instagram posts as well, so maybe that’s why I’m super hyped to write up today’s post. I also have been looking forward to waking up and reading Style Bee’s post as well as Un-Fancy’s post (being a day behind….err ahead in Japan does have it’s perks).
So here’s Look 2!
Today I used these three pieces:
-Uniqlo striped cropped box shirt
-Uniqlo black circle skirt
-Uniqlo blue coat
& I also wore my Lowry’s Farm “Mens” shoes to finish the look
I very much feel like myself in this outfit. I’ve always been drawn to striped shirts ever since I was a kid so nothing new there. I often and usually only wear skirts so today’s outfit made me feel pretty darn comfortable (minus my super cold bike ride to work). Sometimes I feel like stripes don’t completely flatter my figure but I love how they look too much to give them up (especially layered under a thick wooly cardigan or coat). I also wore a fleece turtle neck under my shirt and wore thick black tights. Overall I really like today’s look and most of these pieces are my go-to pieces even if I wasn’t doing the challenge. I again worry my outfits are coming off as kinda boring but as I teach and work in a professional environment in Japan not much can really be done about it haha. To be honest, the striped shirt might be a bit too casual for work but I don’t really care.
I’m wearing my blue coat (I’ll be wearing this for all ten looks) as well as a red scarf from…….you guessed it Uniqlo haha. I really like how the coat makes the shirt pop.
I’m wearing my Russet backpack again. I thought that yesterday’s picture didn’t really do the bag justice and so I wanted to show how it looks on. I keep trying to make excuses to talk about this bag because I’m still swooning over it (thank you Tusyoshi <3).
I still can’t get over the cute handmade bunny charm. Ahhh…nothing like a cute charm to brighten your day right?
I’m not sure if you can see but I also added my Glitterchu pin on my right pocket (you can see it in the bottom picture). I loooove this pin. If you follow me on Snapchat or Insagram, I think the first week I got it I kept snapping videos of it’s glittery cuteness.
Excuse my dry fingers and old nail color haha. I got the Glitterchu pin from this awesome pin maker: Sour Attitude Club.
AND my last kawaii flair addition was a cute red bow clip:
Wow okay so I think I got an A+ on my Kawaii Flair aspect 🙂 Also I think I’m finally learning how to take some better pictures.
I’m basically using a step ladder and balancing my camera on Michael Crichton’s The Lost World but hey whatever works right?
I can’t wait to see everyone’s posts and pictures so if you want me to check out your blog or post leave a comment below! Thank you so much for reading!
