Ahh! Can you believe Summer is already here?? What happened to Spring? Not that we get much of that in Florida anyway .. it’s pretty much Summer year-round. I’m not quite ready for tank tops and flip flops every day (let’s be honest – we try to wear as little as possible down here to keep from having a heat stroke six months out of the year), but I am excited for the bright colors and lightweight clothing.
This sheer kimono might possibly be my favorite newest wardrobe addition right now! I am actually kind of obsessed with kimonos … you can style them so many ways, and dress them up or down. I recently spent the evening with a few girlfriends shopping and happy hour-ing (yes, I made that word up), but didn’t have much time to get ready after work. I paired this light Pink Floral Chiffon Kimono with a loose-fitting white tank, jeans, comfy nude peep-toe booties, and layered dainty necklaces.
A couple Saturdays ago, the hubby and I took baby Daisy out for an afternoon at the Riverside Arts Market, and it was the perfect piece to throw on over a spaghetti strapped dress to keep my arms slightly warmer during the breezy afternoon. Not to mention it perfectly matches this gorgeous tassel necklace I just picked up and had been dying to wear. I also wore this Delilah Mesh Bralette under my dress, which was a fun addition when I took the kimono off. It’s dainty and feminine, and super cute with a tank or low-cut top.
The kimono and bralette came from TOBI, one of my favorite online clothing stores that a friend introduced me to a few years ago. If you’ve never heard of it, check it out! They have super cute, on-trend clothes at very affordable prices, are always running awesome sales (as in 50% off!), and have an easy return policy if your order doesn’t work out.
My favorite thing about both of these looks: You can achieve them for under $100 by mixing in basics (like jeans and a white tank) that you already own – jewelry included! Can’t beat a good deal. [Oh, but the purse is not included in that. It was a birthday gift from my hubby – sorry!] Links to everything shown are below. Here’s to a fantastic summer, loves!
