Forever 21 kimono (similar); Target swing dress (worn as a tunic) and boots; Old Navy jeans; ℅ Lulu’s necklace.
I was talking to my mama on the phone the other day and it came up in conversation that I have upwards of a dozen or so (?) kimonos in my closet. Needless to say, she was a little shocked, and we had a good laugh about my slight hoarding problem when it comes to collecting what I love.
This particular one above is my favorite, for several reasons. I bought it (and it’s white version, last worn HERE), last Summer from Forever 21 for about $20 each, I think? I adore the length, first of all, and how it seems to fall perfectly. I prefer a sheerer kimono rather than a fabric one, because I think they fit better over clothes and look less bulky. I also love the print of this one, it mixes well with other patterns, and looks really good over all black, something I do a lot. Anything that I can add on to a boring outfit to make it look better is a bonus in my book. And last but not least, whenever I wear this particular kimono and drop my kids off to their classrooms, the cute kids in the hall tend to come right up to my side and tell me I look pretty, and doesn’t that just make my day;) I love kids!
Tell me, do you have a favorite item in your closet that makes your day brighter?
