OOTD | Trying something new




Dress* | Even&Odd via Zalando
Kimono* | New Look
Shoes | Primark
Belt | Primark

Recently I was sent this stunning New Look Kimono, it isn't something I'd usually wear but I have completely fallen in love with it. Kimonos have been in style for quite a while now but they've never appealed to me, until I tried this beauty on. It's a very bold statement item, I really love the print, so I paired it with a plain blue dress which I forgot I had, it's not available to buy any more though unfortunately. I think the Kimono looks really nice on it's own with a dress but I love it even more with a simple black belt. I have a very straight up and down figure so adding a belt to create some curves makes this outfit look a lot better I think. The weather today is gorgeous as well so I threw out my tights and threw on some sandals. These are a couple of years old now, I haven't gotten round to buying any new sandals yet so these will have to do for now.

I have to say I am in love with my new Kimono, it's so beautiful and I can see myself wearing it a lot this Summer!

Kimonos, yay or nay?

Thanks for reading,
Shona x

  5. Ooh look at you, you look so nice! I'm a big fan of kimono's, I only have one my mum treated me to for my birthday last year but I always get compliments on it when I wear it. I'm pretty sure this is the one Kate Snooks was wearing when she popped up a picture on Instagram earlier (I may be wrong though!) and I was looking forward to the OOTD post she said was to follow so I could find out where it was from :) xx
