Tobi Haul

Style

Some of the spring/summer stuff I ordered from tobi.com


To be completely honest, all of the things that came were a little big for me (as you can probably see in the pictures). Everything I got was in a size medium, which is what I normally wear so I was kind of bummed when the pieces that came didn’t fit me perfectly haha. Because of this, I highly reccomend checking the measurements and exact sizing before ordering 😉 I still wear all of these pieces and definitely don’t think they’re toooo bad, the service and shipping from tobi was also amazing, so overall, I can definitely reccomend it. Here’s what I got!

Spring Style Inspiration

Inspiration, Style

I can’t put in to words how happy I am that winter is over and that it’s officially Spring, the weather has been amazing in Fukuoka recently because the sun has been shining, and all of the cherry blossom flowers are in bloom (ironic because it’s raining today).

The theme of this season’s style for me is relaxed and basically rocking the style of looking laid back and casual yet still elegant and put together. That sounds pretty hard to fathom but I feel like the pieces I’ve shown here provide some pretty good examples

Happy Spring!!


“Suits” 

Largely inspired by classic pin-striped or silk pajama sets. Wearing PJ’s outside of the house (especially to school) is something that I’m very strangely suuper comfortable and accustomed to doing, and because I actually love the vibe this gives off, I think a lot of things can be paired together so that they give off a similar aesthetic but are a bit more structured and put-together.

I thought denim on denim and wearing double of the same color was the biggest fashion sin ever until very recently. I actually love the way matching sets look with each other (if they are pulled off correctly) and think that there is such a cute vintage look in matching your top with your bottoms.

I haven’t really experimented with denim on denim (yet) but have matched loose black pants with with a loose black top tied into a knot at the bottom with a denim jacket or a long cardigan and love the way it looks.

Fukuoka Diary 4: Shrines and City Life

Life

December 19th 

Woke up, made my self a smoothie, showered and got ready to Ed Sheeran. Literally could not wait to get out of the house and meet up with my best friend after 4 days of being trapped at home. A few minutes past 10, Jo came over to drop her things for the night and we left the house. Camera’s at hand, arm in arm, we made our way downtown. With the intention of Christmas shopping we spent (literally) 9 hours in the city wandering around, thrifting, eating, sitting in the park and visiting a local shrine.

I Want To Travel

Travel

I want to travel

But I don’t think anyone understands

I want to wander at four in the morning, through the streets of Moscow

I want to wake up on a roof,

In the middle of New Delhi

Stand on a balcony and sip tea, without clothes, on top of Sweden

Roam through a bazaar in Istanbul

Cry because I am free, beneath Germany

Kiss an elder on her cheeks in Czech

Smoke a cigarette while laying in the tub in the Alps

Read a book in a small cafe around Portugal

Swim through the reefs of New Zealand

Wash my hair in a hostel of England

Dance with the laughing people of Africa

Feed sushi to another in Tokyo

I want to make love to you,

Deep within Spain

I want to travel

Words to live by…

Inspiration

1. People will promise to never leave you. They will. It’s okay to be sad when they do.

2. It is always okay to cry. Always. Find a bathroom, bury your face in your pillow, and let it out. Cry in the shower. Cry in the car. Cry when you need to.

3. Boys will flirt with you for a while and then ignore you. Then, they will flirt with you some more. It will be confusing. You have every right to stop putting up with it.

4. Pay attention to what people say when they’re angry. When you make up and they tell you they didn’t mean any of it, know that they did. Also know that they wish they didn’t. Forgive them.

5. Never pretend to be someone you’re not. If you don’t like tea and classic novels, don’t act like you do to impress people. If you don’t want to wear leather jackets and combat boots, don’t wear them to please someone else.

6. People will be mean to you; they will spread lies, call you names, and talk about you behind your back. Eventually you will realise that it is petty and stupid and not worth your time. You’ll be right. Move on with your life.

7. Your friends will not always be there for you. When you really need to talk, they will sometimes not want to hear it. That’s okay. Take a deep breath and remember all the times you felt the same way. Exhale.

8. You will wait and wait and wait for relationships. The anticipation will kill you. You will keep trying to find the right person in everyone you meet. Relax. There’s no rush. The best things happen unplanned.

9. Tell people how you feel. It will be terrifying in some cases and gratifying in others. It will create relationships and ruin them. But speak your mind, even if your voice shakes, because your thoughts may never otherwise be heard.

10. Sleep.

11. Talk to people. Talk to your sister about the guy she likes. Talk to your mom about her childhood. Talk to your dad about his favorite books. Talk to your grandparents about their families. Talk to your friends, talk to your pets, talk to the cute waitress at the restaurant.

12. Always bring a sweater. Even if you think it won’t be cold.

13. Try new things. Eat new food, try a new kind of juice, switch up the way you dress. You never know what you might end up loving. Life can get boring.

14. Take care of yourself. Wash your hair with that good smelling soap you love. Eat fruits and vegetables. Drink lots of water. Go for long walks in pretty parks.

15. School is important. Try your hardest. If you don’t get something, ask for help. Do your homework. Show your teachers that you’re willing to work hard, and when it comes time to apply to colleges, you’ll be glad you did.

16. There will always be someone prettier, smarter, funnier, or more popular than you. The beauty of it is that it isn’t a competition.

Fall Inspiration

Uncategorized

September, October and November are the best… Clean crisp air, leaves, blankets, halloween, tea, fuzzy socks and so much more, you get the drift. Kinda cringing that I just listed the most basic and stereotypical aspects of fall, but don’t deny it, they’re all true and amazing. Here’s what I’ve loved so far and what’s been inspiring me this season.

Long Weekends and Productivity

Uncategorized

Some days you wake up and know that you’re not gonna get a single shit done, and some days you wake up feeling like you can turn water into wine… feel me? hahaha today was one of those days for me. I’m the type of person to leave things to the last minute which isn’t very admirable but hey, if you get it done and do it well does it even matter when you did it? Here’s how I spent my day actually being productive.

Operation Get Shit Together

Uncategorized

In the past like two weeks I’ve cried, alone in my room, while doing the dishes, at lunch in school, and in public extra loud and ugly while walking home from school. Sometimes you just feel like the universe is testing you and you feel like nothing’s going right for no reason and you keep questioning what you did to deserve all of this bullshit, then you throw yourself a pity party, don’t smile enough, have a pissy attitude and so much more. Maybe that’s just me lol… But we’ve all been through not-so-nice-things. And it frickin’ sucks but there comes a time where you have to put that all behind you and move on. Here’s my plan…

Summer Pt 5: Down time in Malaysia – Until Next Time Summer

Uncategorized

As a farewell to summer here are the pictures I took when I wasn’t doing anything too special or traveling anywhere new, just hanging out and spending time with family. Looking back at it now, that’s what I miss most. This post doesn’t really have a ‘story’ behind it like my previous ‘Summer posts’ have because these pictures are simply a random collection of pictures I took over the two months of my stay in Malaysia. Farewell Summer. You were good.
