Kimono – River Island

Dress – Topshop

Boots – Topshop


With summer approaching, paisley is the perfect print to invest in. You can explore a variety of different paisley prints, colours and textures. I think it’s a great print to play around with. It has a ‘festivally’ vibe to it and is definitely a summer pattern. With this in mind, when I spotted this gorgeous blue and purple kimono style jacket, I knew it had to come home with me.

I’m eagerly awaiting the real summer sun to arrive so I can pair this with some denim shorts and flip flops.

As this kimono is a fairly statement piece, it needed a subtle something to wear underneath. On the same shopping trip as the kimono, I spotted this delightful cotton white dress. The detail on this dress is absolutely beautiful. Around the waist and on the shoulders it has a mesh-like panel with a flower print on. The shape of the dress and the bright white just go hand in hand making this an extremely stunning summer dress. I’m using pretty strong words against this dress aren’t I, its love!

I’ve worn my staple black topshop chunky boots with this to keep the balance between seasons as it isn’t exactly summer just yet!

Have you picked up any paisley printed things recently?
