Spring Stripes

Friday, May 11, 2018

          Throw your sweaters and heavy coats back in the storage bins until later this year because spring is in full swing.  Besides over-sized denim jackets, I love wearing kimonos in the hotter months because they're light-weight, easy, and breezy.  They upgrade even the simplest casual outfit to a whole new level with its effortless chic vibe.  As you can tell by the photos above, one of my favorite ways to style a kimono is with jeans and a t-shirt.   

          First off, I am sending a huge thank you out to Shein for gifting me this flowy kimono and cute crop top to wear in this collaborative outfit post.  In order to jazz up this monochromatic outfit, I knew I had to step up my accessory game.  These Edie Sedgwick-inspired gold statement earrings may be a bit extra to wear during the day, but I love them!  To complement these large baubles, a gold bangle, butterfly-shaped Miu Miu sunglasses, and a Moschino purse with gold-tone details did the trick.    

         Just by looking at it, can you tell this fanny pack is actually a crossbody purse?  If you did, you definitely know your Moschino purses and you've got a very sharp eye!  I just adjusted it to fit around my waist and tucked the extra straps inside the purse to transform it into a chic fanny pack.  Personally, I was never a fan of the fanny pack trend until I styled this look.  Who knows, maybe you'll see another one in a future outfit post.  

         To top off the whole ensemble, I chose these rhinestone encrusted heels.  Yes, I did mix silver and gold in this outfit, but I think they work together, don't you think?  It just didn't feel right to leave my heels out of the sparkle party.  Like I said, it's always so easy to look put-together with a pair of jeans, a tee, and a printed kimono.  However, don't forget to bring the outfit to life with dazzling accessories!
         Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my blog!  Make sure to let me know in the comments below what you think about this look and do you say, "yay" or "nay" when it comes to the fanny pack trend.  I truly hope you have a spectacular day and as always, I am sending you lots of love from my heart to yours!
