I tried different layers on top of my stripe dress to see how my dress would look. I like versatile design that would go with many different accessories and layers. I can’t afford to have many clothes, so I need clothes that I can coordinate to make them look different so that people don’t think I am wearing the same outfit all the time. Even though I live in an all-time summer climate, it is freezing inside of some buildings, so I sometimes take a jacket or sweater. I find it it’s not often enough for me since I really like to wear different layers. I really like my new dress I got at a boutique in Kemang, South Jakarta called “body & soul”. It’s a brand originally from Bali. I walked into their store in Kemang the other day and see if I could take photos inside the store. I was referred to talk to the shop marketing personnel to ask for permission to take photos of the store. I haven’t gotten to do it yet, but I hope I’ll be allowed to do that. The store has some really fun designs that you might enjoy seeing.
My sweet husband got this necklace I’m wearing in above pictures when he went to Yogyakarta for business. He did well, didn’t he? I like matching it with one of my favorite shirts from H&M. The capri pants I was wearing this day were the pair I got from my friend at a clothes swap several months ago when we were still in Virginia. I love them. These pictures were taken inside a Zara store. My husband wanted to look for some pants, so I decided to have some fun while we’re waiting for him.
This is called yukata, summer kimono. I wore my yukata on an UN Day at my first daughter’s school. I asked my little monkey daughter, the second one, to take some photos, so the first three photos were taken by my daughter outside. Those are not as bad as some others that have none of me, part of my buttom, or just my feet. The last two photos were taken by my household help. I don’t think she had taken photos many times. All her photos were blurry and I could not use them since the quality of the images were not great. I’m thankful that she wanted to help me out.
I purchased my yukata at UNIQLO in Japan a couple of years ago. I wrote about UNIQLO in the UN Day post and I wrote that I recommend UNIQLO for its contemporary designs for women’s clothing and cute kids clothes as well. The prices are very reasonable, too. If you go to Japan during summer and want to buy yukata, try UNIQLO’s. You might find yukata you like at UNIQLO or even find something else you like!
