Kimonos truly are a girl’s best friend (especially in the Summer). I have a bit of a gypsy heart and I love layering at all times, so lightweight options allow you to still be cute + comfy without passing out from the heat.
I wanted to wear something a little patriotic on the 4th so I bought this floral kimono from Charming Charlie to pair with some red shorts; it feels like you’re not wearing anything at all, so I’ve grabbed it a few times since then when I was running out of the door. It’s hot in Memphis but this is so flowy that I can still keep cool. I wore it last Saturday to meet my bestie Candace for a little shopping and drinks after a shoot that afternoon with my friend Andrea.
I lucked up on this statement necklace for FIVE bucks at Walmart last year, and it still makes me giggle when people think it’s more expensive than it really is. You can find amazing pieces anywhere if you’re open to it. I also needed a new tote (the one I had was beat up and HORRIFIC) and found this classic tall tote in periwinkle blue at Old Navy for $10.
Charming Charlie has surprised me; I’ve found quite a few cute pieces there over the last month and will be going back for more.
