For ages, I had been admiring the pastels trend from afar but hadn't been brave enough to try it out yet. So when Glamorous contacted me asking if I'd like to review some of their clothing range I decided to go for something a little bit out of my comfort zone. Admittedly, I'm still wearing a lot of black so this outfit is very "me", but I'm loving the light pastel kimono to add a bit of summery-ness to an otherwise pretty plain outfit.

I wore this outfit at the weekend to lounge about outside in the sunshine and it was perfect for the warm weather. I hate going out without some kind of cardigan or jacket, even in the summer, so this kimono is great to chuck on top of a plain dress to instantly make it look you've put some effort into getting dressed! It's a lovely light, floaty material so is nice and cool in the hot weather (which sadly seems to have disappeared today - boo!). I really love the print on the kimono, it's a really pretty oriental floral design in mint and peach.

Because this maxi dress is quite floaty I've tied the kimono at the waist to give it a bit more shape. It would also look lovely untied on top of a bodycon dress or a tshirt and pair of bright trousers, I can't wait to experiment with some more adventurous outfits and try to step away from the black clothes this summer!

At the moment, Glamorous are offering free worldwide delivery, plus you can get 20% off using the code GLAMOROUS20. Perfect excuse to treat yourself to some new summer goodies!

  2. You look gorgeous! I really like the colour and pattern on the kimono. I think I have a thing for mint coloured clothing, it just comes across as really light and refreshing to me :)

    1. Aw no, you'll just have to save the code and do another cheeky wee order soon haha! Yeah I think they're great quality, they're really comfy and seem true to size. Haven't put them through the wash yet, but so far they seem really well made! x

  8. Oooooh, I love the kimono on you! It adds a nice touch of color. For summer, I might style that kimono with a simple white, bodycon dress. Something body conscious to balance out the looseness of the kimono!
