Sea Spary Yukata and Chingari Mangari Japanese Tea




Hello everyone! Today's blog is about yukata outfit that is summer cotton kimono outfit. People say that it is good to select obi (like a kimono belt) has complementary kimono color. However, I recommend one-toned looks this summer because one-toned looks has been one of fashion trends. A polyvinyl bag is so cool and elegant with kimono!
みなさま、お元気でお過ごしでしょうか。今回は、今年おすすめの浴衣のコーデをご紹介したいと思います。帯は着物と反対色を合わせたり、濃淡のメリハリをつけると無難にまとまりますけれど、洋服のトレンドを取り入れたワントーンコーデがこの夏のおすすめ。バッグはすずしげなクラッチバッグを合わせるとモダンでエレガントに演出できます。

































This yukata (summer cotton kimono) was from Wagu, which is one of my favorite kimono shop. I really love this pattern of waves and sea spray. I selected an earring of pearl like the sea spray. To be honest, I lost the other earring long time ago. This cotton mask is Daruma dolls pattern. Daruma doll means lucky, so I feel like that this mask protect me from virus more than other masks. After taking photos, my son made some tea from "Chingari Mangari", which is one of Japanese tea brands. I found a wonderful video about the way of making the tea. You can watch here! How do you think about Japanese tea?

この浴衣はWAGUの久山さんがデザインされた浴衣。優しいピンク地に白い波しぶきの水滴をパールのイヤリングでつなげてみました。このイヤリングは以前、片方を無くしてしまったので片耳だけ。でも波しぶきだと思うと気にならないでしょ。布マスクは、いとこがたくさん作ってくれた中から達磨柄を選んでみました。矢の字結びにした博多帯には帯留めをせず帯締めだけにしました。気持ちのいい水平線を作ってみたかったから。撮影後は、明日締め切りのお仕事をしていたら、就活中のあんじさんがお茶をいれてくれました。つきまささんの「ちんがりまんがり」の新茶です。去年であったお気に入りの日本茶。「ちんがりまんがり」は静岡の島田市の方言で「曲がりくねった道」のことなんですって。帯締めはまっすぐ結べたけれど他はほとんど曲がっている私にぴったり。つきまささんのお茶のいれ方動画はこちらです。それではみなさま、今週もお仕事頑張ってくださいね、わたしも頑張ります。来週もお楽しみに♡

  12. Hello Akiko,

    Thanks for introducing us to the kimono culture and to new terms, it is nice to know the different with the term yukata and I bet it is nice and comfortable to wear the cotton version. Also the word obi is new to me so I am always learning something new. What I like about your kimono oOTDs is that you mix them with contemporary pieces like the bags, shoes, etc.

    PS: The tea cups where you served Chingari Mangari are a dream.... I love the tiger *_*
