Crushing On: Kimonos

One of my tried and true fashion principles is adding layers and texture. I am not a huge color person – at this stage in my life I really do prefer neutrals for the most part. What I do love is texture, layers, and dimension (these are my favorite things for home design too actually).

I am alllll about a cardigan or jacket, BUT come summertime when it’s 96 degrees outside and billion percent humidity (literally not an exaggeration) I need my layers to be chic without being bulky.

Enter: the kimono – the summer version of a cardigan.During my recent trip to Charleston (which I can’t wait to share more about it!), I wore the off white fringe kimono pictured above pretty much all day, everyday. In terms of versatility and function it just can’t be beat. Plus I consider my style a little boho, so I love the fringe detailing.

Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of duster length kimonos. I’m not the biggest fan of these. Mostly because I’m just afraid I’m going to trip on them. I prefer my kimonos to hit right at my knee. That way I can wear one sleeve off the shoulder if I want to, and not have to worry about tripping on it or dragging it on the ground.

I’ve rounded up a handful kimonos I’ve been eyeing up lately below!

Howdy! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?

My weblog looks weird when browsing from my iphone. I’m trying to find a template
or plugin that might be able to resolve this
issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.
Appreciate it!

can’t get enough of these! Especially the one in the first picture…so pretty!!
