Off for casual drinks tonight so I decided on this printed kimono and Monki dress combination. I like this kind of look for going out but not out out, it's the perfect casual dressy combo. I've been getting really into my patterned jackets recently and I think this one has to my favourite. I was in two minds about keeping it but finally pulled the tags off and decided to keep it. I need to get my nails filled in again so I must dash. Thanks so much for all you're lovely comments on my latest blog post too! Was nice to hear other peoples New Year's resolutions! Lets keep our fingers crossed we'll keep them!

  4. I love the pattern on the kimono! I have a similar one from Stylemint, but it's a lighter color combination of blues/greens.
    Your turquoise rings are always my favorite.

  14. You have excellent taste in jewelry! The bracelets really compliment the color of your eyes, that is the first thing I noticed. And the turquoise rings are fabulous. I love a woman who makes effort to look glamorous without being over the top. Great look on you, keep up the trendy look!

  32. That floral kimono is beautiful, Lily. I love the simplicity of that dress and the kimono definitely add some spice to the outfit. Your accessories also match beautifully with the outfit. I believe some gold accessories to go with the shoes would do as an improvement!

  49. I had the exact same thing with this kimono and one in Topshop too which was over the £50 mark. I loved them both but I couldn't justify spending the 90 ish pounds. Seeing the Miss Selfridge one here makes me wish I'd taken a chance on it! x x
