Thing to Wear


Kimono - Primark
Necklace - Primark
Leggings -eBay
Watch - River Island
Bracelet - DIY
Nails - Revlon Lilac Pastelle

I wore this outfit on Thursday night for a meal out with the girls. I have three kimono style jackets like this one now, I just love the shape and relaxed fit. I think I can get away with a bit of a wilder print if I pair them with something simple. It was £13.00 from Primark and I knew I had to have it as soon as I noticed it. It's just long enough at the back to cover your bum too so suitable to wear with leggings. (The Japanese word 'kimono' means 'thing to wear' hence my post title!)
The necklace is also rather over the top for me - I bought it for a photo shoot months back and this is the first time I've worn it. Mum asked if I was going in fancy dress. Not impressed.

I wear these leggings all the time, they are one of my favourite purchases and they only cost a few pounds on eBay. I can't find the exact seller now - but there are loads like these available. You might have spotted the peach wrap around bracelet from my latest DIY project, you can see how I made it here.

  15. The kimono really suits you! And it doesn't look like a Primark buy at all, they've got some right little gems in there at the moment
