Over Lent, I'd put together a kimono outfit that was somewhat meaningful to the season. I finally got to wore it a little late on Holy Saturday.
It's coordinated according to colours:
Green - spring, the season Lent is in
Purple - the colour of Lent. In church, the priests wear purple vestments, and what little decorations there are are usually of this colour.
Pink - on the fourth Sunday of Lent, the colour is pink. I'm not sure why o_O
Just so happens that I had an obi that fit this criteria perfectly!!!! The kimono is a very pale green iromuji that I bought ages ago, and was all excited about because I thought it was white. Well, I suppose the colour is so light it may as well be white, but it isn't the cream colour I wanted. The obi and obijime were a part of a set I bought a few months ago. I chose a pink kasane eri and obiage to pick out the colours of the roses. I also thought it would be more youthful as compared to wearing the ensemble with no kasane eri and a white/sage green obiage.
What do you think of the coordination? Do you like it? :)
