It was around April 2017 if I’m not wrong! I was strolling around Jamia Mall in Nairobi Kenya, looking for a piece that would add some zest to my wardrobe. I then came across this bubbly lady in one of the stalls on the ground floor. Before I even expressed my shopping concerns, she had already welcomed me introduced herself and was like “You will love this kimono‘ The moment I tried it on I was absolutely smitten. Up to date, my close friends can attest my drool over kimonos is real. I’m always in the mood for this attire. It’s actually one of my wardrobe staples.
Borrowed from the Japanese, the beauty about Kimonos is that it adds vibrancy to almost all attires. You can throw it over your dresses, shorts, jeggings and even beachwear. If i’d say, it’s the cherry on the cake!Today I’m serving you the delicate laced kimono with floral patterns. The sheer lace not only allows your outfit to be seen but also adds abit of texture to the outfit.This look is my definition of pure elegance.
The animal printed detail is actually a scarf tied around my waist. I’ll be talking more about styling scarf ideas in my future posts.This is what I’d dress when I’m going for brunch with the ladies or lunch date.
Thanks 😊for stopping by.
Stay safe and have a great day.
