 I've been drawn to the idea of a kimono robe for YEARS but never got round to actioning the idea. When I was little, my Grandpa brought my sister and I (possibly even my brother too - the poor chap) back silky kimono dressing gowns from one of his trips. Mine was pink with a huge rose embroidered on it. I felt pretty darn glamorous in it I won't lie. 
I love the idea of wearing a robe like this over un-fancy, comfortable nightwear. A love worn white t-shirt from some club you once belonged to many moons ago or a marathon your boyfriend ran one time, with and cotton shorts, for example ( I say for example - that's a pretty darn accurate description of my night time attire right there). There's something very Carrie Bradshaw about mixing a bit of vintage-esque glamour with the everyday, and I find it incredibly cheering.
I'm saving this little treasure for when I move back to my London flat post-finals and am looking forward to taking it away for a weekend in France. My boyfriend's family will think I think I'm Greta Garbo, but I don't much care. :)

    1. That's so funny - when I was writing this I thought: even if no-one else is pro-kimono, Milly will be!! X

  2. Lovely post! I've wanted a kimono ever since I saw Renee Zellweger flounce around in one in Down With Love. I finally bought this gorgeous red 1950s one from a market a couple of weeks ago and I am officially obsessed xx

    1. I'm so excited to have one! I'm looking forward to flouncing aplenty! X

  3. Lovely print! I'm thinking about getting a kimono like this
