Modern and vintage vibes in Ochanomizu


Coat: Le Ciel Bleu; sweater: Madewell; pants: Zara
shoes: Vans; clutch: Wego; watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs









I hope the weather stays this nice in Tokyo for the rest of winter. No matter how cold it gets, the sunlight always makes a difference. Even in pictures, it makes a huge difference. Lisa from Paint with Stars sure knows how to use the natural light to her advantage! This time, we trekked over to Ochanomizu, an area in Tokyo I've never took the time to explore until this weekend. I instantly felt like I was walking through a retro version of Tokyo, with the old-fashioned architecture, rusty bridges, and peaceful temples. Sometimes the contrast between a modern-looking silhouette against a vintage backdrop is... weirdly perfect.

今回のロケは御茶ノ水。今まで訪れたことがなかったので、ちょっとレトロな雰囲気に一目惚れしました。レトロ感にさらっとモダンな感じのスタイルも悪くないのかな、と。リサさんは相変わらずのカメラの腕前を披露してくれました!いつも素敵な写真を撮ってくれてありがとう。


By the way, I can't thank you all enough for the amazing support with my blog name switch. To tell you the truth, I was a bit nervous about it, but I don't regret it at all. Thank you so much for your kind words <3

  2. Great coat. Yes, light means a lot on photos, I have so bad weather right now in Poland (very cold, looks like snow is coming back here), and all the photos are crap because we have light for about 2 hours a day.

  15. Will be wishing for good weather for you too! How IS the weather normally over there in the winter? Glad that you got to take advantage of this light - these photos are stunning. Many look like they could come straight from an editorial. You really have very striking features.
