Nothing New That Kimono Is On Repeat

When ever I used to read about the Kimono trend I would wrinkle my nose, I didn’t think it was for me. I thought I would look as if I was wearing a dressing gown! Or that a kimono would swamp me?

As with any trend it is all about adapting it to suit yourself, your personal style and your body shape.

How wrong I was! As with any trend it is all about adapting it to suit yourself, your personal style and your body shape. I have worn and worn this Kimono jacket…


Why I love this Kimono

  • More like a ‘duster coat’ than a kimono,
  • No wide sleeves,
  • No bulk it is lean and narrow,
  • It has stripes,
  • Those colours! Yellow and blue with black.

These photos are Iphone snaps from a recent summer evening at a local fairground. I thought it would be nice to share with you, to emphasis that I do wear my clothes more than once! In actual fact I have been living in this one, just right to wear in the evenings , with those summer breezes.


…AND those shoes are over 23 years old perfect for strolling around dusty fields…

    Ohhhhhhhhhhh now I need that kimono in my life, damn you woman!!!! 😉 hehe

    I’m a huge fan of longline cardigans and coats, and a lightweight kimono like this is SO good for summer. They just make anything look streamlined, and they’re good for hiding my bulgy bits that I’m not super confident about right now! You look fab as always (plus: SHORTS. Wow). I’m actually amazed at how close our styles are, I would wear nearly everything you wear Ashley my lovely!

      Haaa Catherine I love that you think that, because I would wear everything you wear too!
      This one covers the back of my knees very nicely! (those varicose veins!)
      enjoy the rest of the week…
      bestest love

    In the last few years I bought a couple but haven’t worn them very much. A little here and there. But now they seem to be everywhere! I went shopping the other day and bought two long ones and two shorter ones and love them! I’ve worn the two shorter ones. Haven’t had a chance to wear the longer ones yet.
    I have a box of shoes that are ready for the garage sale pile but you make me want to keep them!

      Hi Cindy!
      I cant believe how much I am wearing this one, it has taken me by suprise…
      Re garage sale boxes, if I dont get them out of the house then i keep seeing them and I put it all back again1
      bestest wishes
