Last weekend here in Copenhagen was so, SO gorgeous! I woke up to those beautiful, simply perfect autumn days. Just the way I love it. It was this kind of weekends when you party at night, are way too lazy to get out to the world, so you just make a cup of coffee and go back to bed to chill. This weekend, I had this kind of days.
Well, it was a weekend filled with friends, good music and parties, slow walks, nice coffee and sweet breakfasts – exactly what you deserve after a long week. I had this Friday’s party fever the whole week and couldn’t wait to go out and just have fun. Me and my girls decided to hit the party in Chateau Motel, one of Copenhagen’s “to be” venues on Friday night. And there I fell in love – with this electronic trio called Norell, which I never heard of before, but gosh, I couldn’t get enough of them. I think you should definitely check them out!
Saturday was another party day, this time we released our make-up artists skills to create some cute Halloween faces. However, I still couldn’t compete with my roomie, dressed up as Bellatrix from Harry Potter – she was indeed my favourite costume out there! Oh yeah, what were you for Halloween? Besides this, I went out to explore Nørrebro, baked a banana bread, and started decorating my room. Just chilling.
Anyways, on lazy post-partying days like this, I just love to get comfy. Don’t you also feel like wearing your robe or pyjamas all day long? Well, sometimes one needs to get out and do that groceries right? So, I decided to go for a lazy day uniform – an oversized kimono.
It’s been a while I have been into this kimono thing – not only because I generally love mixing Asian, boho and minimal, but also because I think it’s such an easy piece to wear. It is definitely my go-to weekend piece to wear, but still, SO statement. And right now, there is such a variety to choose from.
On a casual day, I’d style it with some high waisted mamma jeans, ankle boots or sneakers, throw a simple white tee under – and you’re ready to go and get that cake in a nearby bakery. To avoid any extra effort (I mean, it is weekend, right?) you can always easily dress it up – and just go out again! Just change that tee for a tight or laced body, apply some eyeshadow (with a finger – there is no time and energy for brushes) and mascara, throw on your autumn coat – and you are ready girl. I absolutely love that kimonos are such variable pieces and look super effortless and cool. Honestly, I’d stay in them every day.
It is also no secret, that I have a weakness for a lot of Asian things – and the fashion is no exception. Kimono obviously coming from Asia is definitely one of my favourite items out there. The great thing is that brands got so influences by this Eastern influence that they started incorporating the kimono silhouettes and patterns into items suitable for every season. Whether you feel like wearing a laced light kimono for a summer festival or a warm fluffy one for winter – you just go and choose!
As kimonos became such a favourite piece of many, lots of brands – from high street to high end have them in their collections. They just go crazy, twist this item into a variety of pieces inspired by it – blouses, tees, coats, dresses. My favourite kimono-inspired pieces come from brands like Zara which did a gorgeous kimono inspired body with the coolest prints. I have seen a lot of kimonos also on Asos and Boohoo. The one, I’m wearing is from a Finnish brand called R/H which with the minimalistic pattern on it perfectly combined the Scandinavian minimalism with the Asian influences. I paired it with a laced body and high waisted mamma jeans from Monki and my favourite ankle boots from Zara. This combo is my favourite ♥
Do you also have kimono obsessions? What are your go to pieces at the moment? I would love to hear from you X
