Arashiyama Bamboo Grove

Konichiwa! I recently just got back from my Japan trip. I thought that I would have spent my spare time at night during my time in Japan for blogging, but man was I exhausted. We usually wake up pretty early to get ready and head out for sight-seeing, hoping to avoid the crowd. However, coming to Japan during Cherry Blossom season is pretty much impossible to avoid the crowd. Everywhere we go, it's just fully packed with people,both locals and international. It is especially crowded when you go to pretty tourist locations like the Bamboo Grove in Arashiyama, thus taking great photos with no distractions was a challenge. 
The place is already so stunning that I only  wanted to wear neutral or basic colours, so that my outfit doesn't clash with the bamboos. I chose to wear white on white as the base but with different texture: lace skirt and ribbed top. Since it was slightly chilly, I paired this outfit with a matrix-style navy coat. I love the simplicity of the fabric and colour as well as the dramatic length.
More travel photos coming up on the blog!

wearing: ECLAIR COLLECTION top  and shorts | STACCATO heels | CHANEL bag | QUAY EYEWEAR sunglasses | DAY & NIGHT rings  

Greetings from Singapore! At the moment I am only transitting via Changi airport, en route to Japan! I thought I would use part of my 9 hour transit productively and blog, instead of just binging on Pretty Little Liars. My travel buddy and photographer will be Jessica and our first destination will be Osaka!I'm not sure how often Bread and Butter will be updated, but make sure to check my Instagram feed for constant updates!

I channeled my inner monochromatic mermaid via this black asymmetrical top from Eclair Collection and paired it with a tight-fitting skort. Nowadays I tend to choose plainer items yet with a slight dramatic twist since I find them looking more luxurious and timeless, especially when the colour scheme is monochromatic.

It's been quite a hectic and messy moment lately, so the blog has been slightly neglected even though I have already some outfits ready for posting. I'll be flying out of Melbourne again at the end of this week (yay!) and there is still a lot of planning to be done, both travel and outfit related. But stay tuned via square feed

And for the time being here is a Bambi-inspired post!
