L E M O N.

Kimono/Blouse; Vintage. Shorts; Topshop. Shoes; Unknown.

I feel like I'm always searching for that 'perfect afternoon', I used to think it involved a good cup of coffee, a book and my bed, but I'm fairly certain the afternoon that I took these photos takes the cake. I've been desperately trying to find something to wear with this vintage kimono for what feels like years, but was realistically only about two weeks, when my mum suggested 'Why don't you just wear it with all white?' I'm not sure why this rather obvious answer didn't occur to me sooner but I'm glad that someone lead me there in the end. I can't believe how amazing the print on this kimono looks when paired with an all white backdrop, it really brings out the stunning lemon in it and makes the floral pattern just burst right out of the material. I think having this amazing scenery to shoot in helps too, but I'd like to think this piece would look sensational just about anywhere. 
I was so pleased with how beautiful and serene the photos looked that I actually couldn't narrow it down to one post, so here are just of my favourites and the next lot will be coming at you next week!
Also for those of your who haven't heard me blubbering about it on my other many social media platforms, I was fortunate enough to be given a media pass for L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival and will bringing it all to you starting next Saturday! I cannot wait! The word excitement doesn't even begin to cover it.
