I had been saving this kimono for a special shoot where the combination of it's velvet, sheer and tiny beads could be captured beautifully. Paulina from Mint and Chillies Photography did an excellent job, don't you think?
I wore my kimono with a floaty top that I bought from Zara when I was visiting Barcelona in July. I don't own many plain tops, but I love the chic double-layer cut of this one and the way it swishes as I walk! My lace shorts add more texture to many of my outfits, and I think it contrasts well with the velvet and sheer kimono. This is definitely one of my favourite looks for the transition between Summer and Autumn.
