Golden Week

 Hello everyone! Hope you are well. Today I’ll share a few pictures from Golden Week.

今回はゴールデンウィークのレポートです。

Golden Week is in May, when a few public holidays fall closely together to sort of make up a week. There are usually gaps in between, and since my job does not respect public holidays anyway I found myself working. On the way to the studio I decided to grab breakfast, and made a happy discovery of a branch of Cafe du Monde, which is famous for beignets.

ゴールデンウィークでしたが、私は仕事がありました。スタジオへ行く前、美味しいベニエを食べました!

I had been to another branch in Ikebukuro, which I also came across by chance. They are so delicious!

On another day, I went to Inokashira Zoo to hold the famous guinea pigs. Unfortunately I got there so late that they’d already been put away! Anyway it was free entry that day and I saw the bird enclosures and had a picnic and tea, so it was a nice day even if it was lacking in guinea pigs.

他の日、井の頭動物園へ行きました。モルモットを触りたかったですが、私は遅く行きましたのでモルモットが皆寝ちゃってました!あれはちょっと残念でしたが、鳥を見てお茶しましたので楽しい一日でした!

  

I wore a straw bonnet for a ‘stroll in the countryside’ look. It’s my old handmade bonnet from years ago but I recent added a lace trim. The onepiece is Juliette et Justine, socks from Metamorphose and wrist cuffs from Baby. 

私のコーディネートでございます!麦わらボネットは手作りです。ワンピースはJuliette et Justine、靴下はMetamorphose、袖止めはBabyです。

On another day I went to Shimokitazawa, trying to find things for my new-ish house.  There is a nice second hand furniture shop there (Limone) and a shop selling all sorts of shabby chic items. I’m not sure of the name but it’s on the north side. Apart from that there are all sorts of bric-a-brac shops and recycle shops.

他の日下北沢へ行きました。あそこ大好き!古着屋さんとアンティーク家具屋さんと可愛いカフェがいっぱいあります。

I wore my ¥700 shop dress, charity shop hat , and Primark socks! My accessories are a bit more upmarket; my bracelet is from Mariwest, and the cameo necklace I got as a present from my friend some years ago. It’s definitely my most worn necklace. I love it so much!

このワンピースは高円寺の古着屋さんで買いました。高円寺も大好き!2年くらい高円寺に住んでいました。そして帽子はイギリスの古着屋さんで買いました。

I went to my usual cafe, LaPalette. They have the most delicious homemade cakes! This one is pumpkin.

下北沢の「ラパレット」でよくお茶します。美味しいですよ!今回かぼちゃのケーキにしました。
