Going Japanese- sort of- in this haori jacket and my old favourite Moyuru skort. A haori is a kimono jacket traditionally worn over over the kimono and obi sash. I have long admired kimonos on others but was never really sure how they would work for me , that is until I spied this one at a local recycle store late last Summer.
Not being tall and willowy the shorter version seemed a good choice for me and I know as Spring becomes Summer I will have some fun paring it with different things. I can see it with wide leg pants and longer skirts. Any suggestions would be most welcome.
I must admit I fell for the wonderfully patterned fabric and these wonderful sleeves. Another bonus was the beautiful cream silk lining , don’t you love a two in one.
Spring has arrived in full force with some warm and sunny days , I have been spending quite a bit of time in my garden getting things in some sort of order before we leave for Europe in a couple of weeks. I also have been trying to work out my clothing for my six week trip, a bit tricky as it will be both warm and cold, so many layering items will be packed. Shoes are the perennial problem , comfort as well as stylish is the only way to go. How many always the question.
Wearing a genuine haori, Moyuru skort, Trippen sandals, Karen Walker sunnies, bangles and beads, recycled.
