A Kimono with a Casual Outfit
Quote of the day: “I don’t have to be perfect. All I have to do is show up and enjoy the messy, imperfect, and beautiful journey of my life. It’s a trip more wonderful than I could have imagined.” Kerry Washington
As I said in the kimono for dress up post, I got so enthusiastic with this kimono because of how versatile it can be. The kimono is a loose, flowy garment and thus, not likely to give too much warmth for the wearer (for those of you who struggle with being too hot). Yet it still acts as a layering piece which can be used to complete your outfit and make your t-shirt look, oh so, better!
It would also be fabulous used as a bathing suit cover up. Many kimonos are multi-colored which makes them very versatile for combining with other pieces in your closet!
Jodie (50+) Outfit: My friend, Bill Poliseo, made this pendant quite a few years ago. Check out his website for more one of a kind pieces at www.billpoliseo.com.

Charlotte (70’+) Outfit: It’s interesting how the yellow of the kimono is emphasized when it’s paired with yellow pants in this picture. I accessorized with a wood necklace & earrings to keep it more informal.
