I'm a convert. A week ago I was a sceptic but today, today I'm a fan. This kimono has changed me possibly for life. I've generally either worn a sleeveless top or dress in the sunshine over summer and made the most of the heat on my skin, reaching for a jumper when the temperature drops. However, it's been a revelation wearing this silky feeling, light kimono over my shoulders while the sun beats down. My skin has been saved from getting all hot and dry while the breeze gently sways the material to keep me cooler. I guess I never really grasped that adding a layer could actually cool me down or save me overheating.

I love the combination of my lilac lace shorts and the colours of the top matching in; the hummingbird and butterfly print of the Kimono is so pretty and suits my love for nature. There were quite a few that caught my eye when I had a browse through the gorgeous range of kimonos at Apricot, I now really fancy a crochet knit, one with fringing as well as a floor length beauty. Even more so now that I spy they have a sale on so start at only £5, eeeep! Try stopping me.

  2. It's very pretty. I'd love a longline version but I'm certain it'd look like a bath robe! Interesting that adding a layer is cooling...
