During the Summer months, many kimono brands offer their yukata and kimono items in department stores in the city. 土曜日は原宿ラフォーレにある様々な着物ブランドのポップアップへ行ってまいりました。 But before that let me show you my outfit.

I am not the biggest Yukata fan myself, but wanted to check out their items in general.

I had an eye on some items and got...
