Kimono Outing

In the Fall, the leaves turn beautiful colors. A perfect backdrop. Our friend Yuko recently showed us the traditional way of wearing Kimono, with the many layers, padding, and elaborate obi belts. We used the opportunity to dress up and headed to Portland's Rhododendron Gardens, a beautiful and often overlooked place, far from the bustle of downtown. Vibrantly kimono against vibrant leaves. Traditional Japanese style.
