EMBARKED ON SUMMER WITH TURQUOISE

TURQUOISE is my birthstone (December).
But I've wondered why this summerish color was chosen to be the color
of December.....though I feel somewhat proud of having the vibrant beautiful
color as my birthstone.
Anybody knows the reason??  If so, please please let me know!!

PLAID ON NAILS

Updated nails.
Pop and bold. When coloring plaid on nails, the color combination is
as important as drawing straight lines.

CASUAL WEEKEND

Dressed down leather items for weekend brunch, layering up a few of my favorites.
A downtown-sporty look can be more dainty when mixing touch of suede and glittery heels!

AGAIN IN KYOTO

Now I'm back in Kyoto to see the clients again.
Though I only had rather short time, I rented a bike to make a quick tour around the city.

Kyoto is a magical city.  ''Japonesque'' designs give me a sort of
nostalgia, but at the same time they make me feel that I'm an only stranger
from other places. The city is amazingly beautiful with more than 1600 temples and 400 shrines,
uncountable amount of flowers, and bracing rivers.

Don't get me wrong, I love Tokyo, a mix of tradition and modern culture.
But if you rather want to feel ''Japonesque'', definitely I recommend you Kyoto.
There's no other place like this.

LINEN LAYERS

This spring I'm more captivated by the texture of linen than ever.
I love the comfortable touch, even they crumple easily.

Well, generally linen fabric should be made and worn simply.
Is there any necessity to turn this light and natural material into edgy-fancy
pieces? I'd believed so......until I found this dress.
This layered linen dress looked absurdly pretty and caught my eyes.
It was so original that changed my belief!

If you are interested, just google ''linen wedding dress''.
Oh no.....you might say with a sigh, they are too good. Simply amazing!
Could be, in my humble opinion, nicer than silk gowns.

ARMED WITH COLOR BLOCKS

Rain and cold swirled into Tokyo this week and that let the spring warm weather
fade.
As it appears that the frigid conditions will be sticking around for a while,
I pulled back my woolen coat again from deep in the closet.
Well, I should say that I don't want to give in to the weather.
So even in misty cloudy days, I wanna walk forward armed with bright color combos to get back the yoo-hoo feelings of the spring.

A TRIP TO KYOTO

Last weekend I went to the east side of Japan on business.
I finished the meeting in the evening and was a bit exhausted,
but I decided to visit Kiyomizudera Temple to see cherry blossoms.

Kiyomizudera (literally ''Pure Water Temple'') is one of the most celebrated
temples in Kyoto and was added to the list of World Heritage in 1994.

This temple is best known for its wooden stage that gives visitors an amazing
view of the cherry trees as well as the city of Kyoto in the distance.

It was the second time for me since I went there on the school excursion.
I was surprised that there are so many international tourists seeing cherry blossoms illuminated so beautifully
during the annual event in spring.
Well, there's a special illumination in the autumn leaf season,
so why don't you add a trip to Kyoto on your wish-go list??
