Despite having a lot of dresses, I don’t have a kimono dress. In fact, I don’t think I have anything in this divine shade of greenish-blue either. The dress is comfortable and easy to wear and I love the slightly quirky but very endearing crane print. I teamed it with my ivory chunky-heeled boots which you’ll recognise from several of my recent outfit posts. In warmer weather, trainers, wedges or flat sandals will be my footwear of choice.
The longline knitted cardigan works beautifully over the kimono dress and I particularly like the fact that it has super-long sleeves. It works as an extra cosy layer when I’m indoors, and it will look super as an outdoor coatigan worn with jeans when spring does arrive.
The square marble-effect earrings compliment the colour of both the dress and the cardigan. They’re made from resin so are very lightweight and comfortable to wear. As much as I love my statement earrings, I can’t bear heavy ones. The quality and the aesthetic belie the very reasonable price-point of under £10 and they’re available in coral too.
The wooden handbag is handmade. Things always seem more precious when they’re handmade don’t they. This is a definite addition to my honeymoon wardrobe, which is growing rather nicely. It’ll be super for sun cream, comb, sunglasses and the like because errant sand will fall through and I’ll be able to see at a glance where everything is.
I think I’m right in saying that it pays homage to Cult Gaia’s iconic Ark bag, (see below), a style I have have coveted for some time. I would of course love the designer version, but truly, this one is brilliant.
