Dress: Topshop // Kimono: Prettylittlething.com // Boots: Office
So I decided it was about time I tried out the whole kimono thing that’s massive right now. I had visions in my head of me looking very tanned swanning around an expensive apartment in nice underwear and my white lace kimono over the top. Its safe to say that hasn’t happened (although I do have the perfect powder blue underwear for just such an occasion) so instead I have settled for wearing it over this gorgeous dress I got from Topshop a few weeks ago.
I totally broke out of my comfort zone with this dress, for one, it isn’t black. It’s also incredibly short and has some gorgeous cut out panels in it which unfortunately you can’t see on these pictures. Admittedly it would look much better with a tan, and my typically Irish colouring means I practically glow in the dark (I have a spray tan booked tomorrow, yippee!) but it was such a gorgeous dress I simply couldn’t leave it in Topshop on its own.
I teamed it with this handy black bag I got from River Island a few years ago, and my trusty office boots for a more casual look, however it could be dressed up with a smart blazer, clutch bag and heels for the evening.
Have you got any summer dresses you’re obsessing over this season? Leave me a comment below and let me know!
