This is a hard time of year to dress. It’s still 80-90 degrees and I’m tired of my summer school clothes but I can’t quite dress for fall yet. I don’t want to shave my legs so it’s hard to wear skirts unless they are maxi! Ha! And, I’ve gotten lazy with my self – tanning regimen so the legs are also pasty white! What problems, right? My sentiments are reflected in my outfits. I forgot to take pictures a couple of days and I debated showing some of these true “misses” of outfits. Oh well!
In addition, I’m linking up with The Blended Blog for their theme of “fall kimonos”. I love my kimonos, as you may know!
Meh – I don’t like this outfit.
Double meh – This is the same as the long floral dress I wore on the first day of school, which I’m sure you don’t remember. This is a size smaller and I need the next size up or else I need the camouflage of the flowers.
Weekend brunch outfit, but I also wear this to school.
This is my favorite outfit and the most me. I wish I had this shirt in multiple colors.
These are the shoes I’m wearing in the above photo. I bought black and tan at Shoe Carnival this past weekend. I have been unhappy with this year’s footwear and these are the brand Axxiom which is the brand of a consignment shoe I found.
The metallic in the top of photo are the consignment find from a couple of months ago. The new black and tan were on sale for $20 bucks each. They passed the teacher comfort test. They are slightly lower wedges than the metallic so they are more wearable for all day.
They were 30% off – original price was $45.
I don’t like this outfit in the photo or else it’s my pose. I was in a hurry to get to my class so maybe that’s why I look weird. I’m also starting to wonder if I’m annoying my two teacher photographers! Ha! It’s not comfortable to take pictures of yourself!
I love this TJ Maxx kimono. I think it really looks like fall.
You can’t go wrong with black and tan.
This is my on sale velvet kimono from last year.
I love to wear my kimonos with knit swing dresses or skinny pants and a top. I think it’s important to do a fitted bottom because the top is voluminous. I always try to size down in kimonos because they run big from my experience.
For the weekends, I think they look great with skinny jeans and a graphic tee or just a plain knit shirt. I really think they make a great third piece. I love to follow the rule of three in dressing. Pants, top, vest is an example. Another example is swing dress, kimono, long necklace.
I have had a hard time finding kimonos in the stores lately. What about you? Versona has some great fall ones – I mentioned this a couple of weeks ago. Other than that, where have you seen kimonos?
Thanks for stopping by!
