Kyoto (Two)

 Bundled up for a brisk but sunny 30-degree day in Kyoto! We visited a few of the temples that we didn’t get to last time, including the Golden Temple, or Kinkaku-ji, and the Rock Garden at Ryoan-ji. Both stunning in their own ways: striking and majestic on one hand, and quiet and minimalistic on the other hand. Definitely glad we crossed them off our list this time around.

Happy Monday and thanks for stopping by!

Kyoto (One)

 23 hours after waking up in San Francisco, we finally made it to Kyoto! And she is worth the wait, that’s for sure. On the list of things we hope to see this time (we crossed a lot off our list last year: see my posts from there: one, two, three, and four): Kikaku-ji (also known as the Golden Temple), Ryoan-ji (the location of the famous Rock Garden), and more walking around downtown and in Gion (never enough time there!). Crossing fingers that Lucia adjusts to the time change easily! Hope you’re having a wonderful week, thanks for visiting!

 Once sales have reached the “end-of-season” (where you can find things for 70% off or close to it!), I scour my favorite designers for amazing deals on classic work items like trousers, blouses and blazers. I found these Agnona trousers at 65% off and the fabric is stunning.

A few more of the best investment workwear during the final days of sale right now:

Hope you’re having a wonderful week – thanks for stopping by!
