Transitioning a Kimono from Summer to Fall

There's a chill in the air Babes! Seriously, I felt it just the other day 😳 I wore a sleeveless jumpsuit (what was I thinking?) and low and behold a stiff breeze came along plus a parade of goosebumps as I raced to my car O_O

Now that we've landed in October, fall-like weather is indeed expected and inevitable. Since I moved to a mild climate, I have learned to style seasonal pieces across every season.
Take for instance this bright and sunny kimono. I purchased it towards the end of spring this year from a line that was specified for summer. However due to the material that it's made from (it has a good weight to it, not heavy, but not light either), its nice long & wide sleeves, plus a medium density lining, this kimono easily becomes a transitional fall piece. 
For this look I paired it with a silk top and matching jersey pants. I love this eggplant hue, notice how nicely it pulls out the lilac flowers on the kimono?!
Until next time,
Xx

  1. I Love it all. The eggplant is unexpected and you gave us a reason to give it a second look.

  2. That is such a beautiful kimono and you're right the eggplant pieces work so well with it! I like to try extend my kimonos out into autumn and spring as well, this is good advice! :)

    Hope that you had a great weekend! It was supposed to be a rainy one here, but we managed to get out in between all the rain which was nice :)
