Gotta Have It: Kimonos

The kimono is popping up here & there as a breezy, boho alternative to a jacket or blazer. Lightweight enough to wear all summer, and perfect for windy nights on the water.  I almost always need something to wrap up in once it gets dark, no matter the season. I am a wimp when it comes to temperature change. I love the layered look, and what a glam accessory to your poolside style? Here are a few of the many options floating the web…

A great example of a kimono in action is Mary from Happily Grey wearing one of my favorite picks from Nordstrom. I love the pairing with casual cutoffs and a simple tank.  Another great budget friendly option is this Silence + Noise kimono via Urban Outfitters.

Now which one will I choose…? What about you? Do tell.

Gotta Have It: Jumpsuits

I’ve been looking for the perfect jumpsuit for a while. I’ve ordered, and quickly returned, one. The fit can be quite tricky and highly variable. I’m looking for that perfect blend of casual and chic, which I think works best and is most versatile in black. I think the jumpsuit works just as well in a wide or tapered leg, but it must fit at the natural waist in order to not look like a sack IMO.  With that said,  I wouldn’t mind welcoming any of these options in my closet.
