My Favorite Way to Style a Summer Kimono

















Similar Kimono here & here // Shoes // Similar Jeans (runs small) // 
Similar Bag (mine is handmade from the Bahamas! I found it on my cruise :)) 
 Earrings: Walmart! // White Tee (LOVE the quality of these, 9 colors & only $10)

I have been so excited to share these photos 1. since I got this kimono 2. since I shot them with my bestie (hence all of the laughing photos😉) and 3. since I invested in a new preset! I can wait to see how using presets changes my blogging and Instagram game. I have always been a perfectionist when it comes to making my feed match, but somehow I struggle with it all the time! Presets basically take the hassle out by giving you an identical way to edit your photos (with a few tweaks depending on the lighting of each photo). I am using the Marina Mcavoy preset on these photos and I love how they turned out, but I think they are still going to take a while before I have them exactly how I want. 

About this look... I love white on white in the summer time. I think it looks so pretty and is easy to dress up or down depending on your shoes and what you are layering. I actually threw these slides on with this look after our shoot and it made the look super casual but still really cute just by switching up the shoes. If you're debating your ability to rock white on white then I highly consider just trying things on! 

I had an idea for this look when I found this kimono at TjMaxx, but I had no idea how much I would love it until I actually tried it on! I searched high and low for a kimono I liked before I finally found a couple and now I can't stop wearing them! Honestly, I don't really think I was struggling to find cute ones as much as I just had no idea how to style them. If you feel like you're in the same boat then I hope this gives you some inspo! I also styled a kimono in this post and I wear this look all the time. Kimonos like this one are also really cute for throwing over a bathing suit in the summer time, wearing over a tank and jeans shorts like in this post or dressing it up like in the photos above so if you're thinking about hopping on this trend I definitely think it's worth it! 

I hope you all are having a great start to your week! I got my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalogue in the mail today so be on the look out for some NSale blog posts really soon!

XOXO
