Yesterday me and my friend Sammi decided to go out for ice cream and a walk along the seafront. It was one of those lovely evenings that begged you to be outside enjoying it. The weather started out lovely and warm but in true English style, turned windy and a chilly and this all occurred around the moment we'd bought our ice creams. We then found a bench over looking the view, in the pictures above, shivering but all happy and content. It seemed to be one of those strange outings where strange things kept happening. The highlight being an old man on a mobility scooter beeping his horn and winking as he rode by slowly and attempted to hold eye contact. I briefly remember laughing out, "what is life?" after he was out of sight. 

I fell in love with this long kimono last Tuesday while I was up in Kingston (south west London not Jamaica) shopping with my mum. I found it in my go-to shop read as Newlook and decided to try it on despite seeing a sixty year old lady also trying it out. It's strange how things can look so different on different people though. She looked nice in it but she look different to me. This was my rationale for buying it anyway. I decided to style it quite casual as I was only going to the beach but it'd also be great for an evening. I'll definitely show you how I restyle it when that time comes around! I also wore my new coin earrings and necklace. To see a close up of them take a look at my last post that featured them here!

It looks like you had a wonderful day at the seafront.
Your kimono has such lovely colours and a wonderful pattern.
I love kimonos, they are the perfect jackets
for warm summer days. I am still looking for one with fringes. :)
