I don’t usually mind standing out in a crowd when it comes to my style choices. Actually, I don’t usually care one bit. But there are few times that I’ve found myself wanting to blend in. One of these times was when we first arrived in Tokyo. Not knowing the language or customs all that well, I already felt a bit out of place and out of sorts when I first arrived and wearing my bright colors and novelty prints really made me stand out. So, in the beginning, I found myself reaching for this outfit…so much so that my husband suggested I try out a different outfit, haha. (Especially since I had packed more than enough outfits, haha!)

Many of the ladies in Tokyo seem to wear neutrals and very classy attire. I didn’t realize how few summer outfits I owned that were actually neutral colored until I arrived in Tokyo! And this one is actually really comfortable to wear in the sweltering heat of summer, but can easily be transitioned into cooler temps. Perfect, in my opinion!

And with all the walking I had to do in Tokyo, wedges became my new favorite “dressy” shoe of choice. I can put some serious miles on a pair of wedges and not have any issues. (The same cannot be said for my heels, though!)

I did get over wanting to blend in quickly enough (if you’ve seen my outfit posts throughout the summer, you know I certainly wasn’t “blending in” too often, haha). But I do still love this outfit because it is very comfortable and appropriate for a wide variety of functions. And gosh, I really need more wedges in my wardrobe!

If anyone has any suggestions on where to find more comfy wedges let me know in the comments! And has there ever been a time you found yourself wanting to blend in with your style choices? Let me know in the comments, too!

    I love love love the stripes on this dress! Black and white is always so chic and these wedges match so well. I’ll tell you, it depends on the event I suppose, but sometimes I’d rather blend in and others I want to stand out. I found that as I get older though, I’d rather stand out haha.

    Wedges are certainly very comfortable, Lindsey, and yours are very nice, with the cap toe! I liked your dress very much, and I can understand the “blend in” phase! You look lovely, I liked the feminine outfit! Neutrals are nice too, And the stripes on the dress are different, not the usual stripes we expect! I hope you are having a great time now, with family and friends!

    Love this outfit! I especially love the shoes! Soooo pretty! And you look beautiful in this classy style. I also sometimes feel like blending in. It’s usually when I’m new somewhere and I haven’t really felt the space out.
    Hope you’re having a great week (almost weekend!!).
    Much love,
    Mona
