Let's talk about the kimono! The sheer fabric speaks femininity as it delicately slides off your shoulder--let's be real, shoulders don't get enough of the spotlight! And its relaxed fit is as comfy as lounging in your pajamas.

One of my favorite looks right now is a kimono paired with something tight underneath. Kimonos should be worn with tight clothing, otherwise it would look like you're drowning in layers. It's a stylish alternative to the light sweater I carry around on a spring or summer night or through the summer-to-autumn transition. For a flattering fit, pick one that is long enough to cover your bum. The length adds to its flowy nature while a shorter kimonos tend to look boxy.

I'm on my second cup of coffee, trying not to be sad that summer came to an end. Anyway, I hope everyone is having a splendid week so far! Thanks for stopping by, my loves!
