Strawberry Vanilla Sesame

Currently typing away in my laptop at the airport lounge as Penguin and I await our boarding time for our flight to Tokyo. That's right, we're going to Japan, baby! Cue in Craig David singing "What's your flava, tell me what's your flava?". I know, totally unrelated but  that's the first thing that popped my mind in thinking happy thoughts and upon looking at this outfit.

Is it just me or are my clothes starting to look more and more like my favourite mid-afternoon snacks if not my favourite hot drinks. Very strawberry, vanilla, and black sesame gelato, no? That's how you end up looking like when you take 2016's pantone colour trend very seriously.

Jokes aside though, I like how fashion is taking a lighter note this season with mostly calming colours like mauve, taupe, grey, and lighter shades of pinks. It doesn't make much of a difference to a lot of people and even to me, they're all just dusty pastels. But since they're muted that way, it doesn't feel like you're wearing too much colours even if you combine them all together; still minimal.

On another note, let's talk travel. As you know, Japan is one of the best shopping destinations in the world where one can find the craziest, most ridiculous items so for that alone, we have decided to visit the country's busiest city - Tokyo. I'm so excited to see what's in store for us. I don't know what to expect so I can't wait to share with you guys what discoveries Penguin and I will have.
