Social Distancing Party!

A friend and I decided to do a happy hour-social distancing party every weekend (Started March 21), alternating houses. It's easy: set small tables and a chair out for each guest on a lovely patio or garden, 6' or more apart. BYOB, picnic, etc. Play some music, chat, drink wine, etc. I decided it would be a kimono challenge, so I have 3 weekends in a row where I am wearing a kimono! The weather has been great- on the cool side and sunny, these parties have been perfect springtime events.
Enjoy the distancing!

Outfit details.
I'm wearing one of my newer acquisitions: an indigo-dyed cotton kasuri kimono with an asanoha (Hemp-leaf) motif. It's vintage, unlined, so a good choice for spring. The color is rich and the fabric is soft like your favorite pair of blue jeans. Obi is a vintage Nagoya, striped obiage from Kimonotte. The orange tsubaki (Camellia) pin was a gift from a friend's Japanese mother-in-law. It's made of chirimen silk. The blue bracelet is from Alexis Bittar.
