Weekly Travel Outfit – Miyajima island, Japan
This week’s Weekly Travel Outfit comes courtesy of Leslie, at ChicAdventures. Read on for an excerpt of her visit there, and more importantly! what she wore.
On a recent trip to Japan, I carved out some time to visit the naturally beautiful Miyajima Island. Located in Hiroshima Bay, the island is famous for the Itsukushima Shrine and it’s striking red gate that looks like it’s floating on the sea. I loved seeing the multitude of unusually tame deer that wander around, and exploring the island’s perfectly manicured Japanese gardens.
Japan was sweltering in the summer when I visited, and I relied heavily on the sandals, tank top and skirt combo, along with a little scarf to show respect when visiting the temples. And don’t forget accessories! I find that sunglasses, bangles and a good pair of hoop earrings will pull any outfit together–I never leave home without them.
- Spaghetti strap tank – Victoria’s Secret
- Purple cotton skirt – Odille by Anthropologie.com
- Flowered scarf – Picked up at a street market in Insadong in Seoul, Korea
- Brown sandals – Purchased at a street market in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
- Sunglasses – Chanel
- Gold watch – Fossil
- Bangles and earrings – Rapsodia (a great brand based in Argentina)
- Messenger bag – Nat and Nin (Paris based)
