Last week was a bit of a bust in terms of attending to this blog. I had all these plans of writing and scheduling posts, so while I was away on my work trip to Las Vegas you’d all have content, but it just didn’t go down like that. The week before Vegas I was slammed with errands, social commitments, and work it was amazing that I even had time to pack for my trip. But today is the start of a new week and I’m ready to get back into it!
Lately, when I’m getting dressed for an event I ask myself, “can I wear a kimono to this thing?” A few years ago the shorter length ones were super trendy. I had a few, but they were never a favorite style of mine. The new trend in kimonos is a longer length that should hit somewhere from the back of your knees to the floor. I’ve always loved the old Hollywood glam look, when women would wear the the silk camisole slip dresses with long flowing robes. This kimono trend is the closest I can get to that without walking around in 50’s style PJs, so I’m here for it!
I found this amazing yellow floral kimono at New York & Company and was immediately sold! I love the bright golden yellow color, but also the how wearable the colors in the floral print are. My favorite way to wear it is with jeans and a simple tee. However, it looks equally great paired with a dress. I like it with a dress that has a hem line a few inches shorter than the length of the kimono. If you get down with a good bohemian look try pairing yours with a maxi dress!
Also, can we just talk about how perfect these 70’s style burgundy heels are. The platform makes them majorly comfortable. I was able to wear them for hours while walking several blocks. They’re casual enough for an outfit like this one, but also looked great when I styled them with a LBD for a wedding. The best part of these shoes is that they’re super affordable! These babies will only run you $60, and you’ll get a huge return on investment once you see how versatile they are!
