When I was in Kansas City for Go Blog Social I picked up this great kimono at a shop, which I unfortunately don’t recall the name of. But the kimono has proved to be a nice addition to my wardrobe. I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about it, but it’s really great for dressing up a little black dress for a night out, or leggings and a basic black tunic for work. That’s what I did on August 4.
This was one of those outfits that just kind of worked itself together in the morning. It actually started with the kimono, which I knew I wanted to wear to work. I figured it would be best over something neutral and basic, so I wore an old long-sleeved tunic (which is actually a cold-shoulder top, so covering it with the kimono makes it something I’m more comfortable wearing at work, and thus more versatile). I opted for grey leggings and black faux-suede boots. I added my Rebel Pendant from Stella & Dot and my long cheapy claw.
While the tops of these boots lead a little muppety, they’re easy to throw on and a little more grown-up than Ugg type boots. Plus they have a cute little gold band on the heels that’s fun. Here is a similar pair faux leather at GoJane.
See what I mean about them being a little muppety from the top? They just don’t have much shape, really. But for a comfortable, slide-on pair of boots for fall, they’re great.
Here’s a look at my necklaces, as well as my rings. I’m wearing my normal everyday rings, two of which are from Stella and Dot (the Eternal Band Ring is the only one of the two still available, as is the Rebel Pendant). I also have a little heart midi ring on.
This was an easy outfit.
It worked great for the office, both in making my cold-shoulder top work-appropriate and being comfortable. And I got quite a few complements on my kimono, which is always nice.
