how to style a kimono for summer

pool to party kimono

It's one part exotic, one part chic, one part total comfort, totally effortless.  This kimono is just as perfect to ward off that PNW summer evening chill as it is poolside as my favorite coverup.

Kimonos are easy breezy.  And one of my favorite summer pieces.  You could also wear cutoff shorts or an above the knee jean skirt, even flare jeans and wedges.

I typically wear flats with this outfit but I thought I'd dress it up a bit with my favorite lace-up sandals.  What do you think?

And of course these jeans, they just keep going and going and going.  I am keeping my eye out for other colors because I love them so darn much.

  1. There's something about that top I really like. You make everything sizzle.
