As much as I love my skinny jeans, I somehow felt like I needed a break from all of my distressed jeans (I just recently realised that I only have 2 pair of denim jeans that are not distressed). A fun way to try out new types of pants are culottes. 

Having lived in Tokyo, I first discovered them when I was walking through Daikanyama area, where the majority of ladies I saw were wearing culottes at that time; and some men. What I like about culottes - they suit all types of body shapes other than straight cut skinny jeans. You can pair them with a cropped top or a slouchy sweater; just pay attention to the cut and length of your culottes. I tend to pair high waisted culottes with a more fitted top whereas midi culottes look great with a basic slightly oversized sweater. If you want to go monochrome, make sure to add proportion to your pieces, and try white sneakers; they do magic.



Chances are that you won't see me wearing sweatpants in public which is why these aren't sweatpants! But I do get what you mean when you take a closer look at the details. I love the details with the buttons on the side. They remind me of these old school tear away pants that I first saw by adidas. My Dad has a pair of these in a blue-white-red color way. My sister had these in blue-green which she then greatly passed on to me but not without making it clear that I should "never throw these away!"



I love taking walks during golden hour time. Not only do you get to catch the last glimpse of sunlight but the warm light looks great on pictures ;) To all you selfie-lovers, golden hour light is your best friend.
