I feel like I should have titled this post What Not To Wear In The Middle Of Summer. If you’ve been following my blog, then you know I love to wear a lot of black. So, when I got this kimono from Rachel’s ZoeBoxOfStyle, I knew that I wanted to wear it with something black (shocking) to make the floral pattern stand out on me. Which for me should be easy enough to accomplish and I had just recently picked up this cold shoulder dress. I thought – this is perfect.
Well, the only thing my friend Renee and I didn’t think about was the temperature. It was so hot and full sun that day that we lasted about 30 minutes at the park! Lol We tried about 3 or 4 different spots and we couldn’t stop sweating. Lesson learned – don’t shoot wearing all black when the temps are around 30 Celsius. Regardless of how thin the material is. Lol
Now on to this gorgeous kimono. Which is such a fun trend and super easy to wear. Just like the gingham trend, kimonos are popping up everywhere. And there are so many different types to choose from – florals to stripes and everything in between. One of the things I love about kimonos is that they can be worn with just about anything in your closet, from skinny jeans to dresses, cut offs or as a cover up over your swimsuit. The possibilities are endless!

P.S. Are you getting excited for NYFW?!! I’m pumped for it. I would love to know if you’re going to attend? I’m currently trying to plan my first visit to NYFW. Crossing my fingers and toes that it all works out.
Have a great week!
