Yesterday was the annual hanami at our local botanic garden. I performed tea ceremony in one of the outdoor pavilions, so sadly, I didn't get any pictures of the lovely cherry trees! My husband did snap a couple photos of my outfit before we left the house. This coordination consists of a striped tsumugi, cream geometric nagoya obi, pale blue lace haneri, raspberry obiage, pink sanbuhimo, rose obidome, and rhinestone flower kanzashi used as an obi kazari.
I was afraid that this kimono could very easily end up making me look like an old lady, so I tried to make the outfit more youthful by adding the girly details and a few brighter pops of color.
