Saturday is Patternday!!

I am a huge lover of monochrome, yet get drawn in by some beautiful patterns.
Every Saturday I am going to try and share my favourite pattern that week. Because Saturday is Patternday!!

Keeping with the Kimono, here is one from Zara, with a lovely pattern involving many colours and flowers and birds.
Although it is bright, I think it works due to the very plain background, a sort of off cream.

The tassels add movement to the piece also, although I am not a big fan of tassels!!
Check back for more, and thanks so far!

Traditional Kimono, Carrie Bradshaw wannabe!

On a recent holiday to Florida, I had a bit of a Carrie Bradshaw moment and purchased a traditional Japanese Kimono - and I am in love!!

The colours and patterns are absolutely beautiful and the gold thread through the pink flowers is such a special touch.

I was fascinated to find out that you must alway wear your kimono left over right else it signifies death, good to know!

I am yet to wear it to a gallery, but watch this space!!

Here's my outfit for going out with the girls. The top and trousers are both from Missguided and the shoes and bag are from Zara. I love the bag as it is such a bold block colour with such a statement written on it. Perfect for every occasion! Got to love Zara

Going to see a friend today, very casual look for this. Mom jeans are from Topshop, as is the high neck top. The belt is vintage Kenneth Cole. Watch is Michael Kors. Make up is the Summer Exotics look from before. Apologies for small mirror, big one was smashed by my dog!


As much as I said I don't like topshop,I purchased these mom Jens in the sale,which aren't half bad. Perfect for chucking on for errands. Sandals are from Zara, on trend with the deep aqua blue and the metal details. Nails are a lilac for summer.
