Easy Breezy

my motto for the summer is easy breezy. being that i work from home, most days are spent in ‘house clothes’ or workout clothes…not because i actually work out, but i feel like my intentions to work out are magnified by actually wearing workout clothes. know what i mean? anyway, when it does come time to get dressed and ready for something i find myself opting for simple looks – tees, kimonos, dresses. some one piece outfits that i can throw on and run out the door without having too much fuss. so, yeah, easy + breezy = my summer style. not to mention, the humidity kills pretty much any motivation i have to get dolled up. nothing like doing your hair and makeup to have it all melt within minutes of stepping outside. 

the moral of the story is you need a kimono like this one because it makes getting dressed in the morning really simple. throw it on with jean shorts and a white tank, a simple dress, or use it as a coverup at the pool or beach. it’s really a one trick pony in your closet. who knew you had a magic animal living in there?!

the lovely ladies over at Sugar Love Boutique sent me this kimono and i’m pretty in love with it. i tend to stray away from bold colors, especially if they’re mixed with a pattern, but this kimono is an exception. the flowy fabric, feminine floral print, and balance of soft and bold colors make it easy to wear this season.
