I bought this little kimono in the Primark sale a few weeks back for £5 and hadn't gotten round to wearing it until today. It is one of the few items I own which is not a floral print of some kind and thought it was quite grown up in a way. This is my little attempt at the clashing prints trend using the two prints on the kimono, swirl pattern on the top and my floral headband. I saw this headband in the sale at work and knew immediately it had to be mine, especially after I saw the ever so stylish Sara modelling it too.

Really sorry about the lack of posting, five full days at work on my feet really took it out of me last week. I am a bit ashamed of myself as I did 48 hour/6 day weeks for around 6 months until April and coped just fine - funny to think 5 days made me kaputt! I've been cycling to and from work in an effort to slim down a bit, I feel like I have either put on a bit of weight recently or finally decided to do something about wanting to be a size 8 and not a 12. It is a personal choice but I really would love to loose a few pounds/stones so we shall see how I get on. 

Today's song is an absolute belter by the American duo Deap Vally. These girls make the most kick ass girly rock ever and I have fallen a tiny weeny massively amount in love with them.

    I'm the same as you, i've put on weight in the last year since finishing working full time to go back to uni. I've got to the point where i'm wanting to do something about it too :)

  17. God you're so pretty girl you don't need to change a thingggg :) relly nice outfit too


  18. I'm jealous you've got that kimono! I modelled it for a shoot once and fell in love with it, but they never had any in my local Primark :( I think your figure is perfect and you are a sexy mama, but I know we all have insecurities so good luck with the weight loss. I wish I had the willpower to diet and exercise but I'm far too lazy and weak-minded!

  19. I have a kimono similar to this from River Island. I find it kind of intimidating to wear but think I just need to suck it up and start draping it over things!
