So, finally, the outfit I was wearing on New Year’s Eve…
Yes, this is what I decided to wear to that big, fancy, 7 course dinner on New Year’s Eve. After I decided that the high-waisted black trousers would just make me feel uncomfortable, I rushed back to the hotel room to change. Lucky for me, the fancy dinner was in our hotel, so a quick change of clothes was easy.
However, as I had a very limited travel wardrobe, and hardly anything (besides the black high-waisted trousers and this silk kimono) that could be described as ‘formal’, I had to improvise. So, this is not a ‘plan B‘ outfit but rather a ‘let’s just throw something together in 5 minutes and see what happens‘ outfit…
I paired the kimono with a simple t-shirt and the wide-leg polka dot trousers you’ve seen featured on the blog a million times. I know, this is a rather casual combination, but I thought that the kimono is the statement piece in this outfit, elevating it to the next level. And I was counting on real pearls and a Chanel bag to add a little sophistication, giving the outfit a ‘bohemian chic’ vibe…
kimono: Klaus Haapaniemi / t-shirt: Vila (old) / trousers: Zara (old) /
shoes: Clarks (old) / sunglasses: Woobs / bag: Chanel
location: hotel Quinta da Casa Branca (Funchal, Madeira)
Which one is favourite, this outfit, or the kimono and black trousers combo?
