Almost there...

kimono

It's been a busy couple of weeks... But I guess it's normal to be a bit tired this time of the year: I'm about to start the last week of work before a long summer break. There are a lot of loose ends to tie, reports to write, papers to mark etc. before I can pack my suitcase and jet off to Homebase 2 later this week... And then to Korea... And then back to Homebase 2... and a few days in Homebase 1, then Homebase 2 again for a while, and then...

Now that I think about it, it looks as if I'm going to be just as busy on holiday as when I'm working, running from one place to another... Maybe I should have my head examined...

Anyway, Professor M and I managed to find time for our customary Saturday dinner at a nice restaurant, and a quick photo shoot on a windy street.

I've had this silk kimono (or whatever it is) for years, and I typically only wear it when I have one of my "I have nothing to wear" moments, or when everything I would like to wear is in the laundry... I can't quite decide if I like it or not, but looking at the pictures it doesn't look too bad. Maybe I can wear it to work this week...

BTW, if you're wondering why you never see me in work clothes, there's a simple explanation: when I started this blog I made a decision that I would not blog about anything work-related, as the blog is supposed to be an outlet for more creative pursuits. And then there's the fact that my photographer (a.k.a husband / Professor M) is only around at weekends...
The text on the bangle is: "Truly fabulous people never get dressed before lunchtime." (you can find it here). As busy as I am, I still somehow manage to live by that...

Are you looking forward to some time off from work?

    1. Thanks. Would you believe me if I said that I'm not actually that much into travelling? It's just sort of become a lifestyle by now...

  6. How could you be unsure of your affections for this sweet little kimono? Clearly she loves you! Really a good look, very of the moment and you treat the little dear well with that slightly tough belt and the pearls. Looking so chic, as always. Really, really gorgeous get-up!

    1. Thanks, Jan. Funny, I've had this kimono for 6-7 years I think, wear a couple of times a year, but I won't get rid of it...

    1. Thanks, Rachel. I think I agree, it does look good... maybe I should hang on to it a bit longer.

  8. Your accessories are great! Adding a touch of edgy rocker style which I love with the feminine fabric.

    1. Thanks, Joni. Accessories is really my thing, and they can really turn an ordinary outfit into something special...

  9. Very pretty kimono, looks great on you. I like the combination of romantic kimono and the rock-style belt.

    Greetings from Prague! Stop by....happy to be a part of Share-In-Style.

    1. Thanks, Martina! Yes, I guess I'm more of a rock.chick than a romantic, and this belt is one of my favourite accessories.

  10. I love those bracelets and the texts...my dad would get so annoyed seeing me in my PJs at 11 am or something like that (on the weekends when I wasn't at school or he at work). Now, I get dressed in the morning even if I have to.

    I don't think I ever posted any 'work outfits' either.

    That kimono blouse is so lovely!
