Hi guys. My favorite item this week is the kimono jacket. It is a great trend that I recommend trying. A kimono jacket is not as fitted as a blazer, and is more funky than a classic cardigan. It is loose and flowy and can be worn both dressy and casual.
Kimono jackets can be solid colors or prints. I’m wearing a kimono jacket by Lover’s and Friends. I love the bright spring colors. I bought it at Trio in Palm Desert. My friend Debra Fenn owns it and if you are ever on El Paseo in Palm Desert California you must check out her store. I paired this Kimono jacket with my favorite tshirt from J Crew, a great boyfriend jean from Seven for all Mankind and camel Dolce Vita booties. Belting the jeans and tucking in the tshirt gives this whole look more definition.
My hip French mowhawk braid completed my look (Thanks to my friend Alexsis Scaletti from the beauty blog Alexsis Mae–You must follow her. She has such great beauty tips).
There are lots of ways to have fun with a a kimono jacket. You can put it over a little black dress, use it as a cover up over a bathing suit, or even wear it over jean shorts or a jean skirt. Let me know all the fun ways you have tried wearing your kimono jacket. Happy reading!!!!
