    Tokyo: Shinjuku Gyoen, Halal Ramen Ouka, Daikanyama

    Shinjuku Gyoen (新宿御苑) The cherry blossoms had gotten their groove on when Ottie and I visited Shinjuku Gyoen. We were super lucky to have been there for the blooms! Shinjuku Gyoen has an entry fee of ¥200 (~SGD $2) per person. This comes with a map to explore this huge area. Everyone knew about the sakura blooms at this park, so it was quite crowded!

This was done in the morning, with light streaming in from my right. Natural light is the best! Perhaps it’ll be motivation for me to wake up earlier in the mornings to take outfit photos before heading to work… once I get the house settled, that is: Wearing Pomelo blouse, Esprit denim jeans, RAWROW bag, Owndays glasses, Kurt Geiger shoes. Orange and blue make such a striking complementary pairing! I liked how the top brought out the smart in ‘smart casual’, as well…
