Checks

Summer checks.
As it seemed to be a cold day I decided on yukata with nagajuban to look more dressed ( and feel more warm)
A purple-ish yukata with big checks and big leaves, somewhat giving the yukata a Taisho era feel.
The obi is one-layered wool hanhaba in actually the same colour tone as the big leaves, soft dusky pink.
The whole ensemble has been screaming for something fresh, so I added bright soft green accessories (summer weave)
The geta are bright pink with ume

I love it! So cute and fresh, while at the same time feeling warm! It's really good looking.

I agree! and I kind of prefer to wear yukata with a white collar under.. it just looks more classy!
