In the heart of Shibuya, the iconic all-ways crosswalk that sends everyone on their way after exiting the JR train station. I’ve shot here so many times for both my blog and Japanese magazines but there’s always a new angle to take on this beautiful cluster#*(@. Japan is still July-warm but I’m inspired by the surely miserably hot salarymen in their suits to suffer a little in my toddler length sweaters. These are all pieces that I’ve been wearing over and over again in different equations – the Wang skirt I bought last winter is proving to still be useful, especially when updated with Phillip Lim’s new season mules (so comfortable they’re airportworthy) and super slick backpack.
