This floral kimono is one of my favorite purchases of Summer, and I've worn it repeatedly with everything from dresses (last seen here), to jeans and a cami, to denim cutoffs, and here with a knotted tee and mini skirt. If you haven't tried the kimono trend yet, I mean...why not? I own three and cycle between them constantly. Depending on the print/color/length, there's something for everyone. I wear mine over a bathing suit as well and it's just the right amount of coverage.

It's funny how much my attitude has changed over the years regarding which outfits to share on this blog. Not too long ago, I would spend quite a bit of time carefully picking each item, worrying if the look was unique, inspiring, or conveying a particular mood. Now I feel much more comfortable in just showing you ME, and it doesn't have to be tied to some perception I want to put out there. I used to obsess over every little detail, and God forbid I repeat wearing the same things too frequently. I've seen the light finally this year and now I realize the value I'm getting out of simply documenting the things that I truly love to wear, regardless of how often I've already shown them to you. I know I've spoken on this a lot lately, and I sound like a broken record but the fact that I featured this kimono just two weeks ago and am sharing it again had me thinking about all this. I know, deep thoughts.

Speaking of which, it's still incredibly hot and smokey here due to all the fires but we are fortunate to be safe in the area we live in. I've been keeping everyone in my prayers, all the families, animals, and firefighters battling the flames. I hope you will too.

Linking up with Rachelle today.


  1. your new mindset is the best I used to be like that as well, but now I really don't care. I just share whatever I'm wearing. Loving all the pink, you look so cute.


  2. Such a pretty look! I love the color combo and that kimono!

  3. Funny, I wouldn't have noticed or remembered that you wore the kimono two weeks ago. Between blogs an instagram I see so many outfits in a week it's impossible to track what anyone wore. And YET in my post today I fretted over repeating a very "similar" outfit. LOL. I'm with you though on just sharing what I'm wearing and not over complicating matters. Your outfit is darling (love that pink skirt!) and worth sharing as many times as you want!

  4. Oh girl. Right now I am trying to re-wear a ton of what I own and the fear of "similar" looks that are just too similar is REAL!

  5. Thank you so much ladies! I don't know why, but blogger isn't letting me leave individual replies at the moment. I'm happy you ladies can relate to my worry about repeating outfits. It's so freeing to let that go and just enjoy!

  6. I think dressing for you is the most important thing! I love the kimono, it's so pretty and is a perfect match for your skirt.
