Jumping on the Kimono Bandwagon

It's getting to that time of the year where the weather seems to be stuck in a twilight between Spring and Summer.  There are random bursts of sunshine inter-weaved with sudden chilly showers, and not too mention the days that are t0o warm to be walking around in a woolly cardy, but not warm enough to go out in only a t-shirt or a little top.  So, a while back I went on the hunt for a chiffon shirt with a pretty pattern to wear over outfits at this time of the year, and I came across this sort of half kimono half shirt number on eBay and had to make it mine.

It came from this random country in somewhere Europe that I have never even heard of before (woops) so took a while to get here, but since it has come I have worn it so much.  It's very versatile and goes with just about anything, which I love.  I usually wear it with shorts and skirts showing off my bare legs, as when it is not tied up  it comes down to my knees.  Unfortunately it was no weather for that today, and I had to venture outside in the rain with grey clouds looming over me, so I thought it would be best to throw on some super high waisted disco pants and have a cute lacey top tucked in.

Even though the sandals do not match the weather, I couldn't resist wearing them as I have only just bought them, so decided to risk my feet getting a little wet!
