Sometimes the funniest (er, weirdest?) part of having a style blog is laying in bed at night and obsessing over whether or not it’s okay to post the same clothing items over and over again. It starts to consume your thoughts, making you wonder if it’s normal to do this, or something that could, in fact, send you to style blogger jail (where all trendy items are withheld from you forever, and you can’t ever Instagram an outfit. That’s my version, anyway;) I know I’ve worn this kimono a lot lately, but you know what? I really love it and find it versatile and fun, and this is real life, where folks re-wear stuff often. (At least I do.)
Clearly at this point I either need to, a) get a life, or b), post it anyway and show you the zillion ways you can incorporate the aforementioned kimono in multiple ways, as I have done for weeks on end. I choose option b! This particular kimono was from Forever 21 (currently sold out), and seems to work well with every item in my closet. The color palette is muted enough that it works with other patterns and colors well, and I love the length of it (perfect for short shorts and that back of the thigh exposure thing I hate!) I choose to make lemonade out of lemons, soooooo, here are…..
Five ways to wear a kimono this Summer:
Wear it over a black and white maxi dress for a fun pattern mixing/boho look.
Toss it on over a bathing suit as a cover up, a la Jessica Alba, I WILL be doing this! Or over a bathing suit coverup (worn as dress,) and black leggings.)
Wear it casually with camo jeans and a simple gray tee.
Add fun to a pair of palazzo pants and a bodysuit.
Wear it more casual and relaxed with harem pants and a tee.
On another note, I’ve decided to take a Summer hiatus from all my Blogger sponsor options for July and August, so I can concentrate in spending more time with my family and just plain enjoying life. The group giveaway and feature spot option will be back with a vengeance this September, and I have AWESOME things planned for these spots, so hold tight and join my team for sponsorship then! Until then, stay tuned for a great giveaway next week from my June sponsors, you won’t want to miss it!
