Kimono Trend for Autumn (and photo-bombed by a cow!)

 I have loved the Kimono trend this summer. I find them so elegant and pretty, plus they make the perfect lightweight jacket.
I’ve recently read that Kimono’s are staying around for the autumn season too, which surprised me(in a pleasant way) as i kind of associate them more with a spring/summer type trend, but I’ve found in darker hues of blues and reds they can add a wonderful little spark to an outfit. I’m picturing in winter an all black outfit, perhaps with a high neck fine knit sweater and a splash of lovely colour with a kimono.
This particular kimono is from the lovely people at F&F, we’ve all established by now how much of my wages gets spent with them each month, right? Its just too irresistible!
After browsing the Inspire-me page with lots of lovely ladies i then turned to The Autumn Winter Hit list which i found very handy ( i didn’t realise how much lovely inspiration they had on the website up until now!).
It points out all the trends this coming season and some suggestions…. I was sold on the kimono’s.
So this lovely little outfit came together. I had a birthday meal and drinks to attend for my manager and this outfit worked out perfectly, we sat in the sun of a Sunday afternoon sipping sangria. It was wonderful!

 Excuse the tired face.. it had been a long weekend!
Prior to lovely drinks & food at Cardiff Bay it had been a party of 26 four year olds at a play gym for Neo’s Birthday party (which was fab), exhaustion is clearly making an appearance on ma face!

 Have you spotted the multiple cow photo-bombs? They just snuck up on me, i didn’t even hear them the little(big?) sneaks! Kind of fun thought, it’s like a game of Where’s Wally haha!

    I made such great use out of my kimonos this summer and to be perfectly honest I had no idea that they would still be around for Fall. I couldn't agree more, adding one on top is a great way to put a pop of color into any outfit. And thank you for the F&F links I will totally be checking out their lookbooks for inspiration!

    Oh Rachel! Thank you for the compliment:) I'm so happy that FINALLY the clutches are on SALE!
    I love kimonos, though I only got mine towards the end of Summer. I'm excited about Winter Kimonos:)
    I can so relate about F&F…I always seem to need excuse to get driven to Tesco:)

    I love how you styled this pretty blue kimono. The gold heels are amazing and I'm loving the color of your lipstick too. You look gorgeous!

    I didn't end up finding a kimono this season which I liked, so I didn't really buy into this trend. I love your shoes, though.

    Yes! I love kimonos and have been seeing them in stores lately but in darker, autumnal hues. Your kimono is absolutely perfect for fall!

    I love the kimono trend, so I'm pretty happy it will be around for awhile longer. I love this look on you! 🙂

    Fabulous outfit love how you have added pink. I have one Kimono and would like more as they are great at snazzing up an outfit.
