Since the ceremony was really just practice and education, I didn't go by formal tea ceremony rules regarding kitsuke - and neither did Josh. I wore one of my newest kimono and opted to do a more modern look. I used my light pink kimono (with small cat's faces!) and the gingham obi, with an orange obi age and a white obijime. I used a rose obi dome, the black nagajuban with cherry blossoms, and a green haneri with cherry blossoms to tie in the spring season.
Josh wore his nice green tsumugi kimono and a new cream obi and setta, but no hakama.
Though not orthodox, I still think everything looked very nice! =D Since sensei will be in town for the next practice, I will pick regular tea ceremony kitsuke. Considering it is already in the 80s here, I may opt for ro, if a little early by the calendar.
