Well Dressed in Tokyo

Greetings from Japan! As all of you who have been keeping up with my latest posts know, last week, my husband and I moved to Japan. The past 2 weeks have been a whirlwind and it is crazy to me when I think about how a little over a week ago, I was in my home in Atlanta, and, now, I’m fairly settled into life here in Japan. As I adjust to the time difference and get acclimated to my new life, please bear with me if my posts are a little sporadic. There is a ton going on and a lot to be done to make Japan feel like home.

Harajuku - Tokyo

This past weekend, my husband and I spent to majority of our time getting our new place all set up (thank God for IKEA). Although we were busy around the house, we penciled in a little time to explore and took the train into the city for an afternoon. Tokyo has been on my travel bucket list for as long as I can remember and I am so excited that I am only a short train ride away and can really get to know Japan’s capital city. Tokyo was everything I imagined it would be and more. Think New York – but cleaner (no offense to New York, but we all know it’s not the cleanest city in the world). We visited a few of the major areas in Tokyo: Harajuku (pictured above – known as the center of culture and fashion for Japan’s young, trendy crowd) and Shibuya Crossing, the busiest intersection in the world (pictured below). Everywhere you turn in Tokyo, there are fantastic restaurants, fabulous places to shop, beautiful, well dressed people, and sights to be seen. Be on the lookout for upcoming posts featuring my favorite places to shop, dine, and play in Tokyo as I explore the city more and more.

For me, the highlight of being in Tokyo for the day was the fashion. I consider myself pretty well traveled, and having lived near Milan, the city that many people consider to be the fashion capitol of the world, I am surprised to say that people are better dressed in Tokyo than in any other city I’ve ever visited (even New York, Paris, and London). The fashion in Tokyo is amazing and this metropolitan city should definitely be on any fashion enthusiast’s travel bucket list. I rarely feel underdressed (because usually I’m WAY overdressed), but in my jeggings, leather jacket, and t-shirt, I felt extremely underdressed walking the streets of Tokyo. Next time we go into the city, I will definitely step up my game to look the part, but, here’s what I wore:
