If you ever needed an excuse to wear multi-coloured floral trousers, this is it! The colour is fantastic, and I love their thick flowery hem. I've teamed them with an oriental inspired purple top, and have chosen a pair of fantastic floral platforms to continue the theme throughout. A bamboo handle bag and top bun compete the look

This kimono jacket has a great shape, but I have tied it into a top to give the outfit a more relaxed day time finish. By teaming it with caramel coloured shorts, and a matching woven bow shaped clutch, the kimono sleeves remain the focal point of the outfit, but I've added some red satin ballet shoes to add a little zing.

A tonal based outfit is a great way to play around with shapes and textures without it seeming overwhelming. I've teamed a pair of mint tailored trousers with a silk embroidered kimono jacket, and blue leather bag. The pink floral wedges are a great reminder of the oriental theme and add a little fun, along with  lengthening the shape of my legs.
