We've been crazy busy at work (Rock On Ruby) preparing for our new "festival-inspired" Summer range... I can't WAIT to get it online!! (Think bold, bright colours, music quotes and slogans). Unfortunately, the weather has been a bit miserable up North this week, so I've had to adapt the festival-boho trend to our current climate!
A kimono is one of the handiest items to have in Summer - they're great and lightweight enough to wear during the day, but will give you a bit of extra cover in the cooler evenings. I would normally team a kimono with a slogan top and shorts, but for a more practical look at the moment, I've teamed this with ripped jeans, shoe boots and a boho top.
I think that even though the top and kimono are different prints, the muted tones make these work quite well together. The rest of the outfit is quite simple so the jewellery can do all the talking...
Longline Fringe Kimono - Miss Selfridge
Jeans - Primark
Top - River Island
Shoe Boots - Missguided
Bangles - Assorted (stolen from my sister!)
In other news, I've recently dyed my hair a fab, ombre purple with Wella Instamatics. The colours are beautifully subtle, so actually it's more of a light, silvery-lilac-grey than vivid purple. But I'm hoping to keep it up with a hint of purple shampoo!
