They say your 20's are the best time to be adventurous with clothing. Your 20's are essentially, the best time to discover what your personal style is. However, I realize that being in your 20's does not exactly give you license to wear what you want. There are some outfits best reserved for teens. This outfit is something I wore for the first washday of the semester. I was supposed to wear them with boots but chose to wear sneakers because the outfit with boots made me look like a hooker, although the same outfit with boots looked great on my 16 year old sister. The key is to find the right balance of youthful yet mature (oxymoron? haha) but not frumpy.

There's often a risk involved when one decides to put themselves out there. For example, when I put up my fashion blog, I knew there was a chance I could get teased or even criticized for it (thankfully, I haven't heard of anything bad so far) but I chose to do so because I liked what I was doing. As long as I wasn't hurting anybody then I know I'm good. Risks aside though, the rewards can be even greater. There's a perk to putting yourself out there too--it sets you apart. I know so many beautiful, talented, smart and fashionable girls who I believe have more right to have a blog following than I do and have the potential to be famous at that. I've tried suggesting this to them but they are scared to and thus, the world does not see their awesomeness. I get it though. "It's often not cool to be the person who puts themselves out there", goes one of my favorite quotes from Emma Watson.

So after a few "intermission" posts, as I'd like to call it, we're back to the Japan posts again! :P I can't believe I'm only on the THIRD DAY of our Japan trip and it's already been a month since we left for Japan! I knew I should've gotten a head start on my posts while we were still in Japan..now I feel like my posts are stale and you guys are sick of them. I hope not! I really take a long time to edit, write and post because I want to try to share as much detail about Japan as I can--my readers only deserve my best effort! :) So anyway, as I've mentioned on my previous post, on our third day, we visited a Japanese University, went to the Kasamori Kannon and moved to our assigned place, which is Mobara City in the Chiba Prefecture.
