Outfit Snap: Casual yellow kimono
I've always had trouble trying to match this kimono with anything, because I'm not the biggest fan of hanhaba obi with anything that isn't yukata, but this kimono is so casual that it looks odd with nagoya obi. I've spent months debating on what to match this kimono with, but as I took out this kimono yesterday, my eyes fell on this simple cotton hanhaba obi, and thought they'd look great together!
They do look quite good together, methinks. The yellow stripes on the obi match the kimono, while the orange stripes on the kimono match the obi. Not to mention the touches of green and purple on the obi to add a little colour to the outfit. It's still a little too low-contrast for my tastes, but it's good enough for a simple, everyday outfit! I can really picture wearing this in late autumn, because the oufit looks so warm ^^
I dressed really quickly, so my kitsuke is a little messy, but it was comfortable and not too warm, so I was happy! I did feel extra fat yesterday - I think it's because I've been eating sweet things constantly for the past week! Haha. I must've eaten two cups of sugar in total over the course of one week... *shudders*
Anyway, what do you think of yesterday's kimono ensemble? :) Any other suggestions for obi? I welcome all ideas! :D
