Happy Monday, y’all! I hope you’re all entering the new week with a big smile and a refreshed spirit! Today is our girls’ first day of school and we are all sorts of excited today! Both girls were up early and ready to drink their smoothies and put on their dresses.
For those of us that aren’t wearing uniforms anymore (or never did, haha), how cute is this floral kimono? We (or most people rather) have entered into that transitional season where it’s all about layering to stand those warm days and stay comfortable during those cooler nights. For those of us in Dallas we may have a couple more months before we enter into this period, but we can pretend!
When I think of layering I typically think of layering with a suede moto jacket or a leather jacket. However, since temperatures are still a bit warm here in Texas for that, I’m opting for a “cooler” trend – kimonos!
This floral kimono is from one of my favorite online stores – Morning Lavender. I love the light colors, the longer length, and the floral print (a trend that we’ll see carry through to Fall). I also like this dusty rose lace kimono and if you tend to gravitate toward darker colors, my kimono also comes in a pretty dark green color you can get here.
Today I styled this kimono more casually, but there are two other great ways you can wear them. All 3 of my favorite ways to wear this kimono are listed below!
3 WAYS TO WEAR A KIMONO:
- WITH SHORTS – this is my favorite way right now because it’s still so dang hot here. I layered it over a silk camisole, but you could easily just wear a tank top. I paired it with wedges because I’m short, but sandals would be super cute, too!
- WITH JEANS – this is actually how I wore this kimono yesterday for church. You can check out my instastories to see how I styled it, but I basically wore jeans and a white tank and flats. This is a great option to use as the temperatures cool off.
- WITH A DRESS – wearing a long kimono is such a chic, feminine way to wear it! The length of the dress doesn’t matter either – short, midi, or maxi will all work! If your kimono is print like this one though, I would opt for a solid color dress like this one from Everlane.
