Kimono and Turtle neck

Black trousers Zara - Green turtle neck sweater Cortefiel, similar
Printed kimono H&M, beautiful similar in blue - Velvet and tassel wrap belt H&M, almost identical
Red heels Melissa, similar on sale - Black tote bag Furla, similar on sale

In the endless tropical weather I live in, I would have never thought of putting together a satin kimono and a turtle neck sweater. In my head these are fabrics almost continents apart. But these days anything goes. When I was packing my suitcase I felt like wearing the kimono, even though temperatures would be chillier than at home. The turtle neck took care of that. What fabrics do you just never dare to wear together ? Why ?

I love the kimono with the turtleneck! :) I've worn a kimono with a long sleeved top in autumn just once but I wasn't too fond of the combo, it would be good to try it again and wear it with something more wintery as you have here.

Thanks for your comment on my paddington post too. If I had the opportunity again, I would definitely buy it again. I love the bag so much, I can't imagine not having it in my wardrobe.

Hope you have been having a great week :)

This is a fantastic look - I love it! I do not wear cotton weaves with velvet - they cling together like velcro. Also, angora and wool (like a skirt or pant), as the wool totally makes the angora shed.
