It’s that time of the year in England. Sun-kissed days are already a distant memory. The hectic activity of summer months has given way to what I like to call The Annual Lull. For a couple of months, us Londoners, have London’s parks, museums, and palaces all to ourselves. Not too many tourists want to battle Europe’s unpredictable winter.
Dreary as it sounds, I love the European winter. The romance of overcast grey days coupled coupled with the excitement of snug oversized jumpers and hot chocolates is enough to get me through winter. Then there are the opulent colours – I love all the shades of charcoal, burgundy, and khaki that crop up at this time of the year 🙂
Bright flowy kimonos seem to be the norm in the summer but come winter everyone veers towards stifling coats and fitted dresses. What are free-spirited pixies to do? Sniff out a woollen kimono, what else? 🙂 This oversized grey kimono is perfect for the transitional weather. I wore it with a loose smock dress in a rich red colour and added a burgundy bag and an olive green beanie (mmmm- who else loves beanies as much as I do?) to complete the outfit. I threw on the tribal coin necklace as an afterthought because it complements the bohemian print of the smock dress.
I can’t wait for winter now – chunky boots, floppy hats, oversized jumpers, and hot chocolates – bring it on 🙂
