Hello lovelies. So you might already know if you follow me on twitter or Instagram, or if you’ve guessed from the title of the post - it was my birthday yesterday! Thanks so much for all the birthday wishes, I had such a good day and luckily it turned out nice and sunny again. I got a long lie in the morning then we went out for a late breakfast at Tribeca in the West End. I absolutely love going out for breakfast. It’s my favourite meal of the day and has so much more potential than just two bits of toast and a cup of tea! (as you can tell, I feel very strongly about this..) Tribeca is an American style café/restaurant with an amazing breakfast menu – I ordered the chocolate chip and tri-berry pancakes and they were so, so good. The portions were massive though, and I almost cried when I had to give up before I’d even hit the half way mark. That place is definitely a new favourite! We spent the rest of the day wandering around the shops then went over to my mums for a big barbeque in the evening. What a calorific day..
This printed kimono is one of my favourite things in my wardrobe at the moment. The print is beautiful and I love the ombre effect – the only thing is, it can be quite difficult to work it into an outfit so I’ve probably been a bit lazy with it and have only worn it a few times. I really wanted to wear it yesterday though so I threw it over this simple monochrome outfit and actually really liked turned out. The white on the skort makes the pale colours on the kimono stand out and the black top ties in with the pattern on it too. I’m definitely going to try and wear this more often, I love it too much for it to sit in my wardrobe.
How would you style this kimono?
p.s here's some pics from breakfast!
