And so the transition from S/S to A/W begins…whether we’re ready or not it seems! As the weather is still a bit up and down I mixed two of my favourite summer buys (white jeggings and silver pool sliders) with my favourite new purchase, the floral kimono. Florals are a winner for every season but the dark background makes it durable in the winter months, whilst the delicate pink print means it’s totally fine to wear now as well.
The kimono is sooo silky and fabulous feeling, you kind of just want to swish about in it! Coupled with the metallic shoe it’s a great outfit for a casual evening out and could be dressed up further with a heel and a statement necklace if you so wished. As the weeks progress I’ll be swapping the white bottoms for vintage wash or black jeggings (I don’t wear jeans often as they don’t fit me well, sore subject) and the sliders for ankle boots or loafers. Depending on where I’m going I’d probably also swap the crop for a longer top. A lot of the items shown are either in the sale or a total bargain which shows that style doesn’t have to cost the Earth and that our high street/British e-tailers are pretty awesome at helping us look good for less!
The kimono is part of a range of items in the same print from Dotty P’s – joggers, vest tops and dresses, so it’s possible to turn the look into a fab co-ord or cute dress depending on what you’re most comfortable in. It just so happens that most of the outfit is also DP, pure coincidence (but I do shop there A LOT so not shocking I guess!)
