Lately I have been thinking of doing something different with my hair. Maybe a shorter cut, maybe a bit of colour added. I’m seeing lots of people chopping their hair and looking fabulous and I suppose it has got me thinking. But when I see these photos I must admit, I love having long hair. And after years of growing out my heavily highlighted blonde hair, I have fallen back in love with my brunette locks. So maybe I’m not quite ready for a major change. And as I write this, I’m thinking a separate hair related post is warranted!
But let’s now talk about my outfit. I bought this velvet jacquard kimono from Topshop in the January sales. It’s a real statement piece and it’s safe to say I don’t have anything else quite like it in my wardrobe. I love how it makes me feel very bohemiam and free spirited. It’s a beautiful piece of clothing that I think I will treasure forever.
Because the kimono is such a stand-out item, I kept the rest of my outfit black as I didn’t want to detract from the main event! I accessorized with some rose gold accessories and my bronze-tipped high heels.
