Sunday morning, my bffff, her other bff Sarah, and I went in search of wildflower fields. I have been trying to take more blog photos and Sarah has been wanting to get back into photography so we had a win-win situation. We left at 7:00am to attempt to find wildflowers near Lake Elsinore, but no surprise, they were all dead. We were not discouraged though! The scenery was still pretty so we found some good spots with some little wildflowers and took some great pictures.
I was really happy with how this outfit turned out. I found the kimono last weekend at my sister’s bachelorette party in Palm Springs. The store is called Heavenly Couture and EVERYTHING was $16.99! I could have bought way more but I had some self control, but only some. To be honest I wasn’t sure how the kimono would look paired over my collard chambray top but I think tying the bottom of the top really helped. This is the chambray top I got from the Who What Wear line at Target. The shorts are from Topshop at Nordstrom. I am really excited to see how else I can style this kimono, especially for work. I will definitely be trying it this week. At Heavenly Couture, they had it styled over a mauve dress and belted. I want to try something similar because it was super cute! Check it out, and note, I have only gotten a couple pictures back from Sarah so I will be sure to share the rest when I get them! You can totally tell the difference between her photos and mine LOL! She is just such a good photographer!
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.
