Long Live the Kimono

Happy Wednesday!!! Well the day has come and I am headed home after my extended stay in Nashville. I am actually ready to get home, see the hubs and do some cooking. But first I’ve got to share a little with you, my people. Long live the kimono!

Kimonos have been around for a few years and from the looks of things, they aren’t going anywhere any time soon. I won this one from Rodan + Fields in a Rachel Zoe subscription box last year.

Tropical Kimono

I’ve always been drawn to the tropical print on kimonos and so this one thrilled me.

Tropical Kimono

I like that it has sleeves versus slits, but either style is cute. I also like how I have the option to tie the front of this one if I wanted.

Tropical Kimono

When you have a kimono like this one, a white column is all that’s needed for the base. The kimono itself is the star. I wore my favorite white jeans from Loft and a white cami. This one would be equally great as a beach cover up.

I added my makeup color Tory Burch Millers and I was good to go. These sandals are truly and investment, but I can attest to them being the perfect, most versatile shoe. I brought another pair of sandals on my trip, but I wore these every day. That’s what I’d call a workhorse.

Victoria Emerson Bracelet

I’ve worn my new Victoria Emerson cuff most days since getting it too. I adore the way it looks like a stack of bracelets, but it’s really only one. The magnetic closure makes putting it on and taking it off a breeze.

I found a couple of this exact kimono to link, but I also am linking some cheaper options. So tell me, are you a fan of the kimono?

    This white-on-white look + kimono is fabulous!! Hope you have a smooth transition back to everyday domestic life after your Nashville trip!

      Thanks Gina! It feels like I’ve been gone forever…but I’m not mad about it. Just wish Kent and I could move to Nashville already and be near the kids. ❤️

    If I want a “three part look” then a kimono is a great option for summer. But to be honest, I’d rather reach for a cute top than a kimono. I just don’t find them a lot of fun to wear. I bought three (all prints I adore) at the beginning of summer and I can just about guarantee that come cooler temps, they’ll be in the donation bag.

      They definitely aren’t for everyone. I don’t wear them a lot either, but this one is pretty!

    And long live my beautiful friend!! Safe travels home today!

    I have a few kimonos but no long ones like this! It’s so beautiful on you! Seriously cute with your monochromatic white look!

    I like this one because it’s more of a duster that I would wear. Safe travels!

    • August 27, 2019 / 7:08 pm

      Yes, exactly. I like that it has a little more structure.

    I love this look! I need to find a kimono I like for my birthday!! I know I would wear it with a variety of outfits. I have one Victoria Emerson bracelet and will have to see if hubby can get me another for Christmas ?. As I am trying to curb my shopping but know he will want to get me somett, I can look him in the right direction!!

    • August 27, 2019 / 7:08 pm

      There ya’ go. Win-win with the bracelet for Christmas!

    You look so great in this outfit. Love the kimono and it looks great with all white under. Don’t you just love those Victoria Emerson bracelets? I have a few myself.
