KYOTOChunky knits

Kyoto, the beautiful historic city in Japan. Kyoto is beautiful all year long. There are various beauties to see in each season. Winter with snowflakes kissing everything to turn to a serene white, Spring brings out the famous cherry blossom trees, Summer, when everything is a lush green and then Fall bringing in every fall colour imaginable. Rustic orange, bright yellow, hints of lush green and brilliant red. Colours like these call for an ootd in Kyoto.

Considering we were in Kyoto for the Fall season, my wardrobe consisted of lots of sweaters, cardigans, blazers, one coat and a leather jacket.
Here I wore a chunky knit I purchased from Korea in Hongdae, distressed ripped jeans, purchased on my trip to Egypt from the store ONLY at the City Stars Mall, really comfortable flats and lots of accessories.

IMG_1418It was the perfect outfit for climbing hundreds of stairs at the Fushimi Inari Shrine (Fushimi Inari Taisha) red gates. I honestly felt as if I did the CN Tower stair climb! What a great workout though. I didn’t make the entire climb, although my intentions were too.

After climbing what felt like forever, I thought I had made it to the top. Of course there were more stairs! My legs were jelly at the end of this adventure but definitely worth it.
This was the most perfect sweater weather and there was lots of sun! I was so happy I brought my sunnies (sunglasses) with me.
