Things I’m happy about today: it’s almost the long weekend, the weather is gorgeous, and I’m wearing a kimono!

Like ponchos, kimonos have always been a staple in my wardrobe, regardless of whether or not they’re particularly on trend that season. I used one of my favorite kimonos as a statement piece in today’s post and paired it up with a handful of summer/autumn trends — including bold botanical prints, denim and my fav gold mules.  

 There are so many different types of kimonos and countless ways to wear them, which makes them so fun to add to your wardrobe. There are a ton of different ways to style a kimono and the best part about it, is that it instantly transforms your outfit. What do you guys think of the kimono trend — will you try it?

Whether you’re wearing jean shorts and a t-shirt or a simple cotton dress, adding a kimono to your outfit is the way to go. It instantly dresses up your look and you can use the wardrobe staple to transform your look from day to night. Not only can they transform your outfit, you can rock a kimono as a dress on it’s own. add a belt and you’re ready to rock.
