Kimono: Mimi Chica | Top: old (similar) | Shorts: Old Navy | Booties: Marc Fisher | Glasses: Gucci

Florals don’t always have to be girly and bright – and they don’t have to be worn exclusively in the spring or summer either. For a fall-ready take, I always look for pieces that have darker prints against lighter backdrops. It’s the perfect mix to help bring the gap between summer and fall!

I made the mistake of falling in love with this kimono during the #Nsale but decided not to get it. I then had so much regret, I ended up buying if after the sale and paying full price. Lesson learned. If you can’t stop thinking about it – BUY IT!

Hope you guys have a great weekend! I’m hosting my sister’s Bridal Shower at my home this Saturday, and while I’ve attended many a shower in my life – HOSTING a shower is an entirely different thing. Holy cow, it’s like throwing a mini wedding! I know in the end it will all be worth it, but wow…I am the biggest stress case right now…hand me a drink! -XO
