21 May Adding a Kimono for an Easy Stylish Look
Did you watch the Royal Wedding? I did catch some of the Spectacle on TV, but am not an early morning person, so I didn’t wake up at the start. It was beautiful too, and you can see it on Hulu if you didn’t get to see all of it at the time. I do find fashion to be an interesting bit of the Royals, and Megan Markle’s gown was both elegant and stylish. I also loved the Stella McKartney halter dress she wore. I have posted about the Queen Mother in The Crown Post, as well as introducing you to the company, Cornelia James, who makes the gloves the Queen ( and now I) wear. There is an American fascination, though with the English Royals. Do you follow them?
It has been royally unpleasant here, ( ;-)as far as the weather has been concerned!! It had been raining all week this past week, so taking photos became a bit of a challenge. My hubby would look at the hourly and we would make a run for it! Those of you that love to wear casual looks, with jeans and a cute top, can find that wearing a kimono over jeans and a cami or tank, will elevate the look a bit more.
Kimonos are a trend that is a fun way to add another layer, add color, and as I mentioned, elevate the look of jeans and a tee, if that may be your “uniform”. They can take the place of a blazer or cardigan, and let’s face it, they are fun! I found this lacy number on Amazon, and love the sleeve detail, colors and style. I have one other kimono, that you can see in THIS POST, for winter, and enjoy the style.
I love that the cut is not straight across, making it more of a boxy look. The lace detail and rounded hem makes it a more attractive style to me.
What I also like about the kimono, is the number of ways you can wear it too
- Style it with a column look – (ex. all white column would be a white top and white jeans – kimono over top
- Wear with bermuda shorts and tank.
- Wear with white denim shorts and tee
- Skinny jeans and tank
- Wear over a romper – See my previous post-Wearing a Romper Over 40
- Wearing a linen neutral outfit with kimono over top for summer for added color.
I received my “Hampton Style” prescription sunglasses from Eyebuydirect, and bought one other pair for summer. I love this style, as it is a smaller frame that fits my face. I will be writing about how to buy sunglasses on-line in a future post.
I have also purchased some new earrings from Baublebar for Spring. I love statement earrings and these white resin flowers were too pretty to pass up!
You know these sandals from JAMBU are on repeat all summer. The memory foam and style make them easy to pair with so much!
