Jump On It

Kimono: c/o HERE| Jumpsuit: Old| Wood watch: c/o HERE| Clutch: Vintage| Pink sandals: Franco Sarto, similar HERE

Happy Fri-Yay Dolls!!!
Today’s style story features a duster length kimono paired with a simple cotton jumpsuit- a perfect combo for date night or a girls night out. I’ve had this jumpsuit for a couple of years (I think I last wore it 2 years ago while on travel), but this is its first debut here on the blog. It is made from a wonderfully soft and breathable cotton blend.
I was slow to join the kimono game, not because I don’t care for them, but because I hadn’t seen one that suited my preferences. I specifically wanted one that was duster length, preferably with longer sleeves verses elbow length, and I wanted it to have an over-sized fit. I had just about given up that such a kimono existed (after one false alarm at Nordstrom's) – that is until I changed where I looked for it 👀
Another avenue of thinking outside the box when it comes to personal style includes purposing items in ways different than they may have originally been intended. Take for instance this kimono…it is actually listed/used as a robe! When I discovered it online, I felt fairly positive that it would serve my interests well.
I was right! When it arrived I immediately remembered my comfy yet seldom worn jumpsuit as an option to pair it with, after all a monochrome approach is practically effortless!
Do tell, are you a fan of kimonos? If so, what are your style preferences?
Until next time,
XO
