I opted for wrist accessories and a necklace, completely foregoing earrings. I completed the look with a pair of black leather espadrilles πŸ™‚

You can opt for full coverage, by pairing the kimono with leggings..

OR create a playful summer look, as I did with the shorts 😎

Both outfits are quite versatile! The full black coverage is great for a formal meeting or simply, to feel cosy on a rainy day out πŸ˜‰

The pure white look with the white linen shorts is perfect for everything, from hanging out at the mall and even going to the beach!

Quick Tips:

1. You can even pair this kimono with your bikini or a swim suit and it will look perfect!

2. You can also wear a belt or cord with the kimono, to add definition to your waist. Or you can just let it flow and enjoy the breeziness like me! ❀

So what do you think about kimonos? Would you like to try one, or do you love them already? πŸ˜€

This bag is pretty big in size (15 inches diagonally) with a subtle, elegant quilted design. The braided pipe-style strap looks stylish and the tassel detail on the zipper adds uniqueness.

I love the fact that it can transform into almost any kind of bag! πŸ˜€

It can work as a tote, as seen in my picture below.

I can hitch it up on my shoulder and use it hobo-style.

It also comes with a detachable long strap. So I use it as a sling bag also! πŸ™‚

I have had this bag for 3 years now, and it has been very loyal to me! From important interviews to crazy parties, this bag of mine has seen it all πŸ˜€
