Here’s some trivia for you. Did you know that the Japanese word ‘kimono‘ literally means ‘a thing to wear’? I decided to go a little wild with prints, clashing this beautiful Amalita kimono with my favourite Kyla Crozier silk shirt (last seen here). What’s not to like about a kimono jacket? It adds an oriental flair to any jeans-cum-Tee-outfit and softens the edges of the most grungy ensemble. One day I would love to wear this flowy Amalita piece with a body-con dress for some contrast.
Did you notice my flat pink bottle? It’s not a giant keyring, meet Vapur, my new trusty side kick. When I was young, I used to always carry a water bottle everywhere I went, that was when big totes were the carriers of choice. Nowadays I’m usually holding a clutch, or this vintage Hebe bag (which is my vet work bag as reminds me of a doctor’s bag) so the room for a plastic bottle is becoming increasingly small. And then I discovered Vapur, a Races-conoisseaur’s favourite, this ingenious space saver is the most portable and greenest water bottle on the planet! I got one for hubby too, in blue :) It’s reusable, foldable, attachable, washable and makes a bold statement. Now I have no excuses for parched lips.
Are you having a good week? I’ve been working as a vet, catching up with friends, one of my besties is coming back to Melbourne for a fortnight (See her here) so can’t wait to see her, and I’m off to Lady Melbourne’s 1000th Blog Post Party tonight! Guess what I’ll be wearing? :)
