Love To See Your Money Hanging In My Closet

I've always loved the quote by Candace Bushnell, uttered by the fabulous Carrie Bradshaw: "I like my money right where I can see it...hanging in my closet."
Only, if we get technical, since I'm a homemaker (shaker) and my husband provides my wardrobe choices, then technically the statement on this tshirt is more befitting for me.

I realised one problem I have when travelling: I bring the all these colourful yet practical pieces for the weather of the place I'm visiting, but I always forget to take into account the setting of that place, like the time I went to the serene Shinjuku Gyoen garden in too-casual varsity jacket and patch jeans during my first trip to Japan. 

It's apparent I didn't learn from it because I repeated the offence in my second trip, this time in the gorgeous, romantic Arashiyama district in Kyoto. If I could do-over the day I packed for my Kyoto trip, I would've brought the loose floral jumpsuit or the flowy black dress I had just bought from the H&M sale during the days leading to my trip; I probably wouldn't have looked too different than from the locals in their kimonos.
Or, you know, I could've just not chosen the leopard joggers paired with red plaid shirt, with the statement long-sleeved tee.

But then again, I was biking everywhere in Kyoto. I could just imagine ripping my black dress in half from the rented bicyle's chain... So all is good, if you think about it.

Plus, I honestly adore all the pieces I have on here, and they make me happy wearing them.
