Crazy for Kimonos

Isn’t it amazing how tastes change the older you get? I am not by any means trying to hide my body at all, but over time I have become more and more drawn to looser, more flowy clothes. Worn the right way, they look really good, and not overwhelming.

The key is balancing it with more fitted pieces, like the skinny jeans I am wearing, rather than a looser pair of boyfriend jeans! I’ve worn this kimono from my store more than once already, and I already have plans of wearing it again, and maybe purchasing more for the store as well! They have become my new staple and one of my favorite go-to pieces. It’s so easy to just toss on over a t shirt and head out the door.

Outfit Details: 

Kimono: Elizabeth & West /// Shirt: Target /// Jeans: Old Navy (similar) /// Shoes: c/o Rack Room Shoes /// Necklaces: Brin and Bell, c/o Charming Charlie /// Bag: Coach (similar)

I particularly love this kimono because of the length in the back. Because it’s so long, I prefer to wear it with wedges, just so it lengthens me a little bit. When I wore this while working at my store, I did end up changing my shoes (my feet just can’t hold up in heels as well as they used to!) to a pair of flat sandals. It looked cute and more casual, but I still would choose wedges or heels! 

Have a great week!!
