I'm not a fan of cardi's or shrugs as there's never any patterned ones out there so I automatically find them just a boring thing to buy and only will if I want to keep my arms covered but still show off whatever t-shirt I've got on underneath. Hence why I love Kimono's, they are never boring!
The kimono trend remains strong into spring and being the most versatile of pieces, it's a wise investment for any season.


Both of these Kimono's are from River Island and they are 
B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L! 
Pictures don't really do them much justice.

I saw both of them in River Island Stratford City and tried to choose one...but couldn't, and bought both! :)

The first one pictured is a more spring style fringed kimono, and will go with all the lovely pastel separates that have been taking over SS14 a treat. Its a great thing to wear if you wanna go out for an evening do but have a plain dress/top/leggings to wear to let this take centre stage! I wore it to my sisters pre-wedding dinner just a couple of weeks ago :)

The second kimono I'm wearing in black is due to go in to hibernation as I'm saving it for the autumn (though admittedly have worn it out once so far! :) )  it is a real statement piece that I'm gonna wear with shorts and tights to show off all its beautiful beading detail, the pattern on the back and sleeves are a lovely soft velvet!


These are so worth splurging on as you'l find you'l wear them again and again, I know I will be! :)
