OOTD: Kimono and Katana

Since kimonos are a hot trend this season, I've decided to show you my floral kimono. I bought it at a boutique some years ago. I haven't worn it much, because the sleeves though pretty make it difficult to carry out everyday activities, at work or at home. I have styled it with jeans and royal blue wedges. However, the main accessories are a Chinese clutch, a gift from my godmother, who has recently been to China, and P.'s Japanese sword. Katanas were traditionally used by samurais. What do you think of this look? By the way, I've just started an Instagram accountPlease, let me know if you also have an account on that social network.

Let me introduce the katana, a real Japanese sword. By the way, it's a bit heavy.

Look del día: kimono y katana





Como esta temporada los kimonos están tan de moda, he decidido mostraros mi kimono de flores. Lo compré en una boutique hace unos años. No lo pongo mucho, porque aunque las mangas son muy bonitas, no son muy cómodas para el día a día, en el trabajo o en casa. Lo he conjuntado con vaqueros y cuñas azul eléctrico. Sin embargo, como complementos principales, tengo un clutch chino, regalo de mi madrina, que hace poco viajó a China, y el sable japonés de P. Los samuráis solían utilizar katanas. ¿Qué os parece este look? Por cierto, acabo de abrir una cuenta en Instagram. Decidme si vosotras también tenéis una.


Ya habéis visto las fotos más arriba. P. fue el fotógrafo y lo pasamos muy bien. Si queréis conseguir este look, aquí tenéis prendas parecidas (lo siento, pero no hay enlace para katana):


Kimono de flores 41 € 

Modcloth cuñas 30 € 


Clutch 22 € 


Gracias por leer este artículo. Pasad un día estupendo.

  2. Me encantan los kimonos, yo tengo uno negro con estampado de flores. Ya he subido entrada con él, puedes pasarte a verla si quieres en www.aderomania.blogspot.com y darme tu opinión.
    Me encanta la combinación que has hecho con el tuyo. Los vaqueros son siempre una buena opción :)

  33. I love your kimono top! I have a kimono top but it's sadly quite sheer-- and not in a material as luxurious as yours. Beautiful!
