"12 Days of Kimono" - Day 4

Day 4 of the "12 Days of Kimono"! Often with the cold weather, I like to choose darker tones for a feeling of warmth. This ensemble is the complete opposite! All of these pastel colors remind me of candy! A yukiwa covered lavender komon is paired with a green gingham nagoya obi. The obiage and sanbuhimo are a sweet baby pink. To replicate the pattern of the kimono, the obidome has faux pearls in the shape of a snowflake. Hanao with multicolor leaves have fluffy snow covers to keep the toes warm outside. For one more element of sweetness, I also included a pink handkerchief with a maneki neko and ume design.

  1. My first thought when I saw this was that it looked very pastel style! C: Wonderful color combinations, I really like it! It's fresh and gives a childlike/innocent touch of cutesy to it. I think this outfit would be super cute with curly hair!
