Kimono (& Link Up)

August 17, 2017

One trend I can’t get enough of is the kimono trend. What a fun easy way to update your look.

The Kimono

This kimono from Shein has a pretty green, yellow and orange floral print with an ivory background and black piping. I had to have it as soon as I saw it! It can be worn tied at the waist or left open (which I prefer).


The Jewelry

My newest Kendra Scott jewelry looked perfect with this outfit, I think. I’m wearing my Elle earrings in Emerald Cat’s Eye which was my first ever Kendra piece and still one of my fav pairs of earrings.  Also I layered necklaces with the Jayde Opal Pendant and the Rayne pendant in black (a birthday gift from my friend Lynn!).  I just thought the colors really came together well here.


Everything Else

I’m wearing my Hudson raw edge cropped flare jeans.  Even though these were more than I usually spend on jeans, these ended up being a fabulous buy cost-per-wear since they’re flattering, comfortable, and I love the way they show off cute shoes! Also wearing an asymmetrical tank, Soft Surroundings sunglasses, strappy sandals, and a vintage bag.

    Not only a gorgeous kimono but I love the black top and the sandals. I haven’t found Kendra Scott in the UK, yet. I have found Kate Spade so give me time and I may.

    That kimono is fab! I love the length and the print! You look so chic!

    Seriously loving this kimono! I have a very similar one and must try it over all black soon.

    Very nice on all the black! Great colors! I love the way you styled the kimono. Enjoy your weekend!

  • Reply Anna Marcus August 17, 2017 at 11:41 pm

    The kimono is so versatile and looks great in many ways. The black top is very chick and offsets very nicely the print of the kimono

    SUCH a gorgeous look, the kimono makes such a statement with the black, and love the color of the earrings which harmonize with the kimono.

    I LOVE your kimono! I want it! I’m wearing a kimono this week too, but I’m after a longer one like yours for autumn.

    Thank you so much for the feature; I’m glad you like my shocking pink coat as much as I do! xx

    I love, love, love this kimono! I also can’t get enough the trend. I think I have about 30 different kimonos in my closet now and wear one almost every day!

    What a pretty kimono! Love it with the all black. I think I am going to get those same earrings for a wedding I am going to in Oct. The main color in my dress is green, and they are so pretty!
