Come As You Are / Come As You Are / Come As You Are / Come As You Are / Come As You Are


Today’s post is still a little summery, but right now the Bay Area doesn’t really know what season it wants to be! Also, this particular “kimono” is on the shorter side. I love this trend because it is a great way to cover up but I was still able to enjoy the heat. My beanie is Carhart, fringe “kimono” is Forgotten Grace (from Crossroads Trading), shirt is Forever 21’s Heritage 1981, shorts are BDG, and shoes are Diba.

Many of us bought our “kimono” earlier this summer and threw it over everything. If you didn’t buy one, then don’t worry! You’re not too late. these “kimono”s are a great piece that can also transition into fall. I will pair mine with high waist jeans, a crop black turtle neck, booties and a wide brim hat…I think I just inspired myself for another post!

Here are some “kimono”s in every price range to inspire you to try this trend.

    You’re in the bay area too!!! OMG it is so hot lately. The ornate maxi kimono is lovely, and both the “splurge” ones are gooorgeous.

      I totally am! Born and raised, haha! I actually CAN NOT with the weather. I’m sorta melting, like every single day. I do not believe that you are on a quest to learn fashion because you look like you live/breathe it.

      Thank you! I got them when I went on a shopping spree once. I totally regretted the spree, but not the the shoes!
