Kimono Love





(Floral Kimono & Black Shoes - New Look/White Dress - H&M/ Belt & Necklace - Vintage)

Hello lovelies! 

This is a quick post today, just so I can show you all my vintage style kimono! I picked up this beauty from New Look last year and I'm only getting round to showing you all now, shocking I know! I love kimonos for their elegance and ability to transform any simple outfit; whether it's a BBQ, night on the town or even a wedding, I feel like a kimono can help create a striking look for any occasion. I'm excited to wear this item with more of my wardrobe, but today, I just paired it with a simple white dress. I bought this lace dress from H&M last summer and it's been one of my favourites ever since. Luckily, it hasn't shrunk in the wash, something I find all my H&M items tend to do... Anyways, I think my kimono will be a timeless piece that I'll hopefully have in my wardrobe for many years to come. 

What do you guys think of Kimonos? Do you share my love for them? 

More soon,

Helen
