30 is the new 20 (hallelujah), blue is my new black (true story), and lately, the kimono is my new cardy! Not that I have given up on the classic cardigan and don’t still own scores of them, but covering up and layering with a cardigan has taken a back seat this season to the kimono.
My last post on kimonos (Kim-On-O You Know You Want One) touched on selecting what to look for when deciding to be a kimono dragon (ok, I thought that was going to be super clever of me, that I had come up with something original and would refer to myself and we as a people as mythical creatures adorned in fancy robes, but Urban Dictionary already has another suggestion in mind for that term). For this post though, I will skip a long diatribe on picking out a kimono and what to wear with them, let the pictures my beautiful photographing niece took do the talking, and just visually illustrate how I threw this gorgeous cream embroidered neutral kimono over a tank and jeans exactly as you would a cardy. And wait for it….lesson complete.
