Denim Kimono

‘Gabrielle wears denim in double denim’!  Dontcha think this is a very fitting outfit post for my Blog?!

I recently got hold of this kimono style jacket from And Other Stories ( A store which I adore BTW). The wide sleeves and belt just sold me right away! I couldnt wait to get my hands on it! A few weeks back I saw Matilda Djerf wearing one similar and it inspired me so much.

I feel like this Denim Kimono will go with so much, and it’s the perfect lightweight wardrobe staple  to transition into next season! So if you’re looking for your ‘coming into spring’ lightweight jacket, I give this one a thumbs up!
I wore it with a classic pair of high waist jeans, an over-sized sweater, boots, and of course a beret!!
Below I’ve made a list of my favorite Kimono Denim Jackets for you to shop

The Iconic Jumpsuit

Meet one of my favourite pieces of style- the iconic Jumpsuit!

There’s no item of clothing that has encapsulated the words fun, cool, chic and timeless as the Jumpsuit has!

Over the years it found its way from its original intent in 1919 as a garment to be worn while parachuting out of planes, (hence the name ‘jumpsuit’ ) and soon after they were called ‘coveralls’- as seen on aviators (Let’s think Amelia Earhart). Evolving, with the slightest push of elegance, the jumpsuit morphed into ‘lounging pyjamas’ which were worn on yachts, on the beach and at home entertaining. Oh! , and now the latest occasion the Jumpsuit has commandeered, think about that killer Jumpsuit for a moment Solange Knowles down the aisle for her wedding! Looks like the humble parachute jump wear is continuing to evolve!

These days all of the above occasions apply and they are a wonderful easy ‘no think’ option to wear alone or with a simple top. Slip it on and go- its like no fuss wear,

No tugging, no tucking, no adjusting, dreamy!

The one I’m wearing is the Vedette Scalloped Vedette Chino Jumpsuit by Anthropologie. I especially love the large belt tie and wide leg!

 

I’ve scoured the World Wide Web to find you a fab selection of jumpsuits, here are my faves!

Nicce

 

There’s nothing nicer than taking a stroll around my neighbourhood on the weekend, especially since it’s Notting Hill, AND Christmas is in the air! Simple local walks are anything but ordinary, you know. There’s something so special in celebrating the familiar!

In keeping with that spirit, I’m wearing the softest, palest pink hoodie from Nicce London. Who wouldn’t love this one? It will become a constant. I will wear it as much as I can on the weekends! Worn with the obligatory Converse,skinny jeans and my go to blazer (I tend to grab without blinking),and Voila, I’m ready for Ledbury Rd, Westbourne Grove, and places beyond!!
