My bffff found a couple of sheer floral kimonos at a store we go in from time to time called Citiwear. It is actually a store I worked at for 6 years back in high school and college. She sent me a picture of the kimonos in navy and in white. They were so cute and perfect I wanted one too! Of course when I got to the store they didn’t have anymore. Figures. They only had black which I didn’t really want. I went to a second store which is basically the same thing and again, they only had black. Well, I wanted one and black was all they had, so that is what I got. Turns out I love it! I usually don’t wear black that often so I always feel a little edgier when I do. This though feels so elegant and feminine. I feel so fancy when I put it on.
What is so great about this kimono is that it is sheer and light which makes it perfect for spring and summer. I love layering, it adds such dimension to an outfit but it gets harder to do when it gets hot. That won’t be as much of a problem with this kimono. The neutral colors also make it great to go with so much. The last awesome thing about it is that it was only $10.99!
Okay so shopping this look is a little hard. i couldn’t find the exact kimono online so linked is a similar one here. The romper is from Target last year but linked again is a similar one (which is SUPER cute!) here. Lastly the heels, which are my new favorite are linked here: Steve Madden CALLVIN.
