The Ultimate Guide to What to Wear in Japan in April

I'm finally finished with my most recent project! The Stunning Style Japan Spring Wardrobe Guide. A curated collection to pack for 2+ weeks in a carry-on. Sounds too good to be true right? It's not!

Packing is so stressful, and I want to take that whole stress element out of your trip. You can be chic, comfortable and appropriate without any effort.

This guide is also appropriate for most European destinations, and many U.S. destinations as well. Come check out my latest creation!
