Lounge With A View…

Tokyo nighttime view

I’m showing you the view from the hotel lounge where we enjoyed a refreshing cranberry juice while we checked in. Yes, our room has a view, but when we got up this morning, it looked like this:

foggy outside

Yes, we are completely socked in! Hopefully it will clear at some point, and I’ll be able to show you our actual view.

But I can at least share the first two outfits from my travel wardrobe

airport style

Here’s what I wore in transit. Our flight was about 12 hours gate-to-gate, but it was a smooth and comfortable one. Didn’t sleep much on the flight, though. The 90 minute shuttle bus ride from the airport to the hotel felt longer than the flight!

And here’s what I’m wearing today. We’re on our way out the door to do some exploring, and then have a walking tour this afternoon. Hoping to have some good sushi tonight!

Stay in touch.

    Sue, I love your outfits. You just get better and better! Thanks for the inspiration. Where can I get that phone case?

    If the first photo of you is after a 12-hour flight (?) I’m speechless. You look incredible! (And so do the shoes.)

      Hi Valerie, no, it’s actually right before the 12-hour flight. 😉 The clothes and shoes probably held up better than I did!

  5. September 23, 2016 / 4:39 am

    Travel safely, and with great joy. I’m so excited for you, and eager to see everything that you have to share.

    Love the polka dots with the snake skin boots. And the red purse is the perfect final touch. Hope the fog clears for you. “Socked in” is my least favourite phrase…ever! I usually hear it on canoe trips when Hubby pokes his head out of the tent and says in an annoyingly cheerful tone, “Looks like we’re socked in, Suz.” And I think…”Please, please just let me roll up in my sleeping bag and forget this whole darned camping thing.” Hope you enjoy the rest of your trip… fog free!

      Thanks, Susan! Socked in is no fun for camping for sure! It’s been kind of coming and going here.

    This is so not fair, you MUST share with us how on earth you look so bright eyed and pretty after a killer travel day!! Have fun!!

    • Susan B
      September 23, 2016 / 2:48 pm

      Meg, thanks but I’m sure I didn’t look so “bright” toward the end of the travel day. We were up for about 24 hours straight and I was pretty glassy-eyed by the time we arrived at the hotel.

    You look terrific for someone who survived a 12 hour flight…Have fun!

    • Susan B
      September 23, 2016 / 2:46 pm

      Thanks Mary, though the first photo was right before the flight. I probably didn’t look that alert by the end…

    Thanks for sharing, Suz from Vancouver

      Thanks! The first photo was just before the flight. I’m sure I looked a bit bleary by the time we reached our hotel! 😉

    Love your blog; I lead a very casual lifestyle, yet I like to look polished & pulled together (no pastel sweatsuits for this sixty-something – no way!). Thank you for your efforts and ongoing inspiration! I lived in Tokyo for 30 years many moons ago. Be sure to look to the right before crossing the street and enjoy your time there!

      Hi Evelyn, thanks very much! I’m loving Tokyo from what we’ve experienced so far…

    I can’t really see the first outfit because of the laptop.

      Hi Darlene, it’s just a black tee, so you’re not missing much. 😉

    I am loving your Japan wardrobe as we will be going to Japan at about the same time next year. I’ll be interested to know how the boots go in the warm weather, as I find boots so versatile when travelling.

    • Susan B
      September 23, 2016 / 2:42 pm

      Hi Lyn, thank you. I wore the boots around yesterday (with shoe liners) and was perfectly comfortable. I may switch out to my sandals today just to mix things up.

    Looking fabulous, Pseu. Hoping that you have an exciting and fun adventure. My son went to Tokyo when he was in college to meet the parents of his then girlfriend. At 6′ 1″, he said he felt like Bill Murray in” Lost in Translation.” He told us a funny story about meeting her family. They kept presenting food to him which he felt obliged to eat. He was full, but did not want to insult them. They were amazed at how much the American could consume and kept the food coming so as not to insult him. Not sure how they came to a mutual conclusion.

      Kristien, thanks! That’s a funny story; these cultural nuances are always a learning curve. 🙂

  19. September 23, 2016 / 5:32 pm

    Wow. I’m really shocked at that morning view. I had no idea that it was THAT smoggy in Japan. You learn something new every day! Have fun exploring. And report about the sushi. I wonder if the sushi in Japan is much better than here!!!

    • Susan B
      September 23, 2016 / 5:51 pm

      Not smog, clouds and fog. It’s been quite damp and humid. We’re scheduled for a sushi lunch today that should be very good, will report back!

  20. September 24, 2016 / 9:35 am

    oh, so looking forward to sharing this trip with you. You look delightful, polka dots and python! Please take photos of your meals. Tell us how you like the sushi in Japan as opposed to Gelson’s take-out. 🙂
