A couple of days ago I had the great pleasure of meeting up with a blogger who I have admired from afar for about as long as I've been blogging - Ashley Dy of Candy Kawaii Lover!
I was so happy when I spied Ashley also wearing platform shoes that were, while totally amazing, also a little impractical for spending the day walking around the city! From that point I knew we'd have a lot in common. My boyfriend Luci who also came along thought we were so scarily similar that we might as well be twins! You can definitely see from the photographs that our aesthetic is basically identical - we both decided to match browns, neutrals and pastel pinks with tights and platforms shoes without any collaboration on our outfits beforehand!
But I still really like these shots because they're a nice reminder of how much fun we had!
It was so nice to meet up with another person who understands the awkwardness and hilarity involved in taking photos of yourself with a tripod and timer while being watched by strangers who think you're either completely mad or a total narcissist, and how hard it is to explain to people what you "do" as a blogger! Neither of us have people in our daily lives who we can really talk to about this stuff, so it's really nice to meet up with someone who understands it!
Ashley couldn't have been nicer and she showed us all around some amazing parts of Kobe, including a gorgeous spot up near the mountains full of old houses and beautiful Japanese flora, and is probably the most beautiful place I've visited in Japan thus far.
And if you follow me on facebook, you may have already seen us being "hilarious" in this photo:
Ashley luckily got a lot more serious shots of our outfits than this, haha (at least, I think she did...). If you want to see what I'm wearing, then head over to the awesome street-style shoot Ashley did of me here! And I totally forgot to ask Ashley where she got what she was wearing, although I do know that you can get those pretty pastel platforms from her store (click here!)
I hope you're all having a lovely day! Make sure to visit Candy Kawaii Lover and say hi to Ashley as well!
