Spring Green & Link Up

April 5, 2018

Remember this pretty spring sweater?  I told you I’d be wearing the Snap Pea color soon and here it is!  Isn’t it a lovely shade of green? And the linen/rayon combination makes such a cool texture!

I’m still on my spring break and enjoying every moment of it! I wore this look for coffee and shopping with my buddy Rachel at Santana Row, a fabulous local hangout perfect for girl time. A big thanks to Rachel for playing photographer and always being such good sport about it.  I’m so lucky to have so many amazing girlfriends.  One of my very fav things about time off is getting to spend time with them!

Unfortunately this pretty kimono is no longer available, but I’m linking up a few chic ones that I’m loving.  Everything else is available and don’t forget you can take 20% off when you shop Jambu.com with code FASHION18.

I’m featuring another spring green kimono-wearing babe, Cheryl of Cheryl Shops.

Dolls, I can’t wait to see what you’re wearing this week!  I always look forward to checking out your looks and thanks so much for sharing your style with the Fun Fashion Friday link up party!

    That’s a lovely kimono, I can see why it’s sold out! 🙂 I love kimonos so much, and yours is perfect with the green top! 🙂

    Thank you for the link up!

    Hope you are having a great week so far! Been a wet week here, but still not too cold 🙂

    You always put together the best outfits, Dawn!!

    Green is one of my favorite colors and I love kimono’s (on other people). I don’t think they look so good on me. I’ve only been to Santana Row once, but it’s such a nice shopping area. I need to make a trip down to SJ soon and go again. Happy weekend!!! XO

    Love your outfit! You (or your lovely friends!) always take beautiful photos! Love San Jose. From your “Southern Cal” friend, and former English teacher!

      Hi Darlene! Loved that you were an English teacher too! Where in So Cal are you? Thanks for the nice compliment. Lots of time I take my own photos with a timer but when I can talk a friend into playing photographer, it’s always fun! 😀
