Casual Friday: OOTD in Tokyo

Tokyo was cold, especially for a girl who’s used to the LA sunshine!  My wardrobe wasn’t exactly appropriate for the weather, so I had to do some spur-of-the-moment shopping (which I totally didn’t mind) while I was away.  This outfit was the result!

In Turkey (where I stayed before Tokyo), I encountered the same problem so I scooped up this cute printed sweater.  I love the random print- cartoon dogs, candies, and flowers- but I knew I needed to toughen it up a bit.  I paired it with a full leather outfit to counteract its “cutesy” vibe.

My leather pants from Helmut Lang were perfect for the weather, since they look sleek but actually pack a lot of warmth.  Over my sweater I layered a jacket from The Eternal, which I love because of its textured panels.  I had to buy a hat on Harajuku Street to combat the cold, so I picked the now-classic “Comme Des F***down” beanie.  My fave Balenciaga boots added some edge!

Have you ever bought spur-of-the-moment to keep warm that you ended up loving?
