Fridays always tend to be fabulous, right? Well this Friday is particularly fabulous for me because I get the honor of co-hosting the Fabulous Friday with Jennie from A Pocketful of Polka Dots. I hope you’ll link up, just go to the bottom and add your links!
For my Fabulous Friday outfit I chose a kimono and white denim ensemble. Summertime is hot and humid and thank goodness for air conditioning! So while I love wearing a cool cami I find it necessary to wear a light layer for when I’m indoors. Enter the kimono – one of my absolute favorite pieces! I have several and I am always on the hunt for another. Not only is a kimono functional but it adds visual interest as well. There are so many gorgeous kimonos on the market in every price range. The one I am wearing is from the clearance section at Target. I paid a whopping $8 for this beauty which I’m sure will be worn dozens of times bringing it’s cost per wear to mere pennies. I kept the rest of the outfit simple with my favorite camisole (similar), white jeans (similar), a tassel necklace, and my espadrille wedges from Gap. I love this outfit!
A couple of things about this outfit worth noting. First of all it is my jam, and I mean it. Give me an easy, non-clingy camisole and a kimono and I am one happy girl. I love the boho vibe and just how comfortable this whole ensemble is, right down to my shoes. Secondly, you probably noticed the white in the camisole is more creamy than true white yet my jeans are true white, so what? It’s all good, don’t sweat the small stuff. The jeans are old and I ALWAYS cuff them, since raw hem is so big right now I decided to DIY mine and they turned out pretty good. I may cut just a bit more off. Our weather has been so bad I was just so thrilled to get out and snap these pictures. The sky was getting dark as my son was snapping away.
If you’re unsure about a kimono don’t be. They are so versatile and fun! I can’t wait to wear this one with shorts and even a maxi dress! Now there’s an idea for a future post, won’t you kimono on over and see all the different ways to style one? LOL
