I’ve had a kimono style topper* on my wardrobe wish list for a few years now. I’d ogled this one online a few times, but didn’t bite until it was on final clearance during the Net-a-Porter summer sale several weeks ago. (Similar look here.)
We were invited to a sake tasting party over the weekend. As the weather had cooled down a bit, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to finally debut it. Le Monsieur took some quick shots with the phone when we arrived (posted on Instagram here), but they were all a bit dark and grainy, so I re-shot the look at home with my good camera to better show the details.
As the kimono/haori is pretty much the star of the outfit, I kept everything else scaled back and neutral.
These slides are from last year and no longer available. (Similar here.) I’m SO glad I hung onto them; they coordinate beautifully with the colors here and are very comfortable.
The party was a blast. The sakes were delightful, each unique in character. My BIL made wonderful soba noodles with duck and vegetables for dinner. Aren’t those pretty? Yum!
*The proper term for the garment I’m wearing is a haori.
Do you have a kimono or haori in your wardrobe?
