How I Styled a Kimono

Kimono: Gift (similar styles 1/2/3); Tank: LOFT; Jeans: LOFT; Sandals: Stuart Weitzman; 
Clutch: Kate Spade (fun option): Necklaces: The Zoe Collective/BaubleBar/Gift (similar);
 Bracelets: J.Crew (1/similar)/Ralph Lauren;
Shades: MARC by Marc Jacobs; Lip Color: Ruby Opera L'Oreal Extraordinaire (c/o PeopleStyleWatch)

Back in roughly 1985, my aunt went to Japan and brought my mom and I back Kimono's. Isn't it gorgeous! I've never worn it and had to ask my mom if she knew where it was. Now, why would I ask my mom where this Kimono was and why would I decided to wear it now? Check back tomorrow and you will see why!

When it came to styling such a dramatic piece, I was really stumped. I originally tried boyfriend jeans and a silky, cream tank. It just didn't work the why I had envisioned in my head. Instead, I reached for my new white cropped jeans and basic white tank. It totally worked with the bright red and white floral pattern. I added gobs of gold jewels, my basket clutch, and wedge sandals. I simply lovely summery look!
