Fall Florals and Wanderlust

I don’t know why but this dress reminds me of Japan. Maybe it’s the way it’s shaped… or the black and white vibes it sends with its floral design, or perhaps it’s the fact that I just reaaaaaally want to go.

I, in fact, would love to travel the world. I have several places I want to go, but lately Japan has really been my top place. Last year, I had the opportunity to go for spring break – not once, but twice! And through certain reasons, like tickets selling out or having no one to go with, I just didn’t make it there.

If you all could choose one food to eat forever, what would it be?! I would answer this in a heartbeat: noodles. I’m obsessed with noodles of all kinds: from udon to ramen to pho to japchae to spaghetti. It actually amazes me that I’m so fascinated with one thing. Which sucks because cravings for them are hard to ignore.

Anyway, a short story: I was born in Taiwan and so throughout my childhood I visited back and forth. We would always have a layover in Japan where I would always insist on having a bowl of udon. Maybe my infatuation began there? So close, yet so far!

Anyway, this dress from Metisu gave me ultimate travel vibes. To the point where I really wanted to just book a flight and be like, “I’m here, finally!” Obviously, I can’t do that (well for argument sake, I can do anything I set my mind to but in this case, it’s not practical for me to do that).

On a brighter note, I love how unique the dresses are from Metisu. As you’ve all seen, there are different styles in my last two posts (Fall Graced Us So Soon and Saying Goodbye to Summer with Metisu). This dress in particular definitely brings in the fall florals. The black and white design is so simple and lovely. It reminds me of an old photograph. Maybe, even, a little bitter sweet – like memories.

Where are you dying to go? What food can’t you live without?

  1. I can definitely see the Japanese vibes in this dress, and you are totally rocking them!! It would be an amazing experience to travel across the world and see all those amazing sights! One food to eat forever? Definitely pizza, I’m kind a pizza-aholic hah!

  2. Love this dress on you! Such a great print. I love Japan. I was just going through old photos this last month and stored away 2 of my summer kimonos (yukata). I lived there for a year and travelled all over Honshu, Kyushuu and Shikoku. I think I hit a total of 15 prefectures that year… I have no idea how many cities… probably 50-60. I didn’t get to Okinawa or Hokkaido, but hey, always leave something to go back to, right? I hope you get to visit again soon.

    I’m spending 2 months out of country, mostly in Italy at the moment. Bora Bora, Machu Picchu, Ankor Wat are all on my list, but probably will cover those in the next 2-3 years. Canadians always leave the country – it gets too cold, so everyone pretty much owns a passport and leaves the country every year to someplace new. lol It’s like 6 months of winter in the country, so you can’t blame us. Hope you find an amazing deal, girl. I’d love to see all the pics and outfits for wherever you go!


    1. Holy cow, I’m so jealous!!! The only place I explored was the airport so I haven’t exactly been, but so many people I know have been going and I have serious FOMO. But that’s incredible!! I have so many places on my list too, Canada actually being one of them.

      Thanks so much for taking the time to write to me 🙂 I definitely can’t wait to see your adventures so I can live vicariously through them til I get a chance to myself!

  3. I love the how the blue hue in your hair create a contrast with the dress and at the same time compliment it.
    You should definitely go to Japan if you ever get the chance to. I just got back from there myself and I loved it. The people are nice and so is the food. I also love noodles, although I can only eat so much of it. lol I actually worked part-time at a ramen restaurant and after many months of all you can eat ramen, a day off and a break from not having to eat ramen brought me joy. Lol now that I no longer have that access, I miss it dearly. I miss the food and the people.
