East Meets West

 

Kimono translates to a “thing to wear”. It is not only A thing to wear but THE thing to wear! When a sales girl asked me to try it on, I was hesitant, but fell in love instantly!! This is one of those things that make your look. Kimonos come in many lengths, styles and patterns and they are super comfortable. I chose a black and white, medium length kimono with a serene elephant pattern. (Lately, I really like elephants) I know I will live in this piece and I am also pretty sure there is another kimono or two in my future. For today’s look, I partnered my kimono with my favorite cut off denim shorts and a classic black tank top. I love so many things about this look and probably my favorite is the care free spirit it exudes. It was a simple choice to add my oversize sterling and turquoise cross necklace. Life is crazy and feeling carefree at times is so rewarding. This is a look that can be mimicked with long jeans leggings, even a skirt or you can throw the kimono over a solid dress. It really is one of the more exciting fashion discoveries I made this summer, I’m so glad we met!!
