I was obviously wrong when I thought I'd packed away my kimonos for the coming months as I'm finding ways to style my beloved pieces in the cooler months!
I discovered the brand Dark Waters quite a while back, and I'd been obsessed with all of their cute, affordable pieces, so I was so excited to be given the opportunity to chose something from their range!

I chose this beautiful mint green, palm tree print kimono that I'd been obsessed with for ages. This is clearly more of a summer piece, but I found it really easy to bring it over to the A/W side of things! I was obviously going to team it with some black to bring out the palm trees, but I also wanted another hint of mint.. (ha!), so I wore my basic ribbed crop top, and my mint green high-waisted shorts. The top is the loveliest fabric considering the price! I hope it's brought out in more colours, as I'm dying to get a few more!
If you remember my outfit post with my super floaty green kimono, you'll remember I wore it with these shorts as a co-ord. I thought they went perfectly with the mint in the kimono, and probably one of the few times I've worn part of a co-ord on it's own!

I'm really loving the whole grundgy shoe vibe recently, aren't I?! My boyfriend keeps teasing me about the fact I say 'androgynous edge' in the majority of my posts at the moment, so tactfully avoiding that phrase! (Besides my use of it just then..).
I wanted to steer clear of the girly chunky shoe look, so I went for my Dr Martens instead, and I thoroughly appreciate the comfortable alternative to heels!
