Wearing: The Casual Kimono

I've always been a lover of the Kimono and for the longest time i'd been looking for one that could be worn every day. You know, a kimono to suit my lifestyle - cotton and casual. There's an abundance of lovely silky numbers out there but for the life of me I couldn't find one that would work equally well with printed tee's and floaty frocks.

When I started Bohemian Traders, I knew a Kimono would be part of our collection and I was thrilled to be able to have the Falling Flowers Kimono created. It's 100% hand block printed cotton voile and Fair Trade. It's a dream to wear over swimmers at the beach to with sweet cotton dresses and cut off shorts.

  1. Hi! love this, got a couple of questions about fair trade etc - could I email you? cheers! G

  2. I love the pom pom fringe detail!
    And I definitely only see one chin!
    Although this reminds me of when I lived in Italy and kept a journal one page of which was a list of things I had lost…included were my chin, my knees, my elbows and all other bony prominences. All that wine and pasta…totally worth it!

  3. Every time I see someone wearing a kimono I think, I really want one of those! And this one is no exception...really like it!!

  4. OMG, where are you that you can wear this outfit and look warm and not freezing? I'm so jealous! This outfit has a bohemian feel - love it! New follower to your blog :)

  5. Super cute and pregnancy/breastfeeding appropriate and that's what I'm looking for in the majority of my clothes now that it is baby making season - Mr Moo is 9 months old and I feel it's time to grow our little family. Five under five... Too crazy?

  6. You look beautiful! I can't believe you've started a business with three littles. Well done you! Also, I wish I could wear a kimono - but they don't suit me :( ... I have my eye on some of your dresses though! I can't wait to see the Autumn range!

  7. Ahh I love your kimono! So jealous of the weather you're having. I'm ready for Spring!


  8. I love kimono's, this has a fab pattern!
