Once a month a kimono - July

Finally I was able to do some kitsuke, and with a reason... Together find some fellow-Kimono de Jack NL 'members' I'm going to the Floriade. Floriade is a World Horticultural Expo, held once every 10 years. And this year it's held from April until October.

Participating countries each have their own stand, so does Japan. That's why we're going in kimono!

Of course I had to practive my kitsuke before going, and see that the outfit I wanted to wear looked good. It's the same yukata Linda has, the first kimono I have in a TL-size, and it's very comfy! Combined with a tsuke eri and a beige/purple hanhaba obi, purple obi age and purple/lightbrown obijime ^_^

And just before the end of July!
