Hiiiiii loves!! I’m probably boarding a plane as I’m posting this because today is the day I head back to Connecticut for the holidays. I’ve been talking about this a little too much, I know, but I’m just excited to see my family and actually be home on Christmas Day. AHHHH! Getting that time off is usually unheard of in the service industry, but this year I got super lucky. Anyway, my posts are going to get a little weird over the next two weeks. I want to share all the outfits I wear in CT with you, however, I’ll probably be on the couch most days. Plus, I still have outfits I shot in San Diego stock piled. Regardless, I’m excited to show y’all some of my true winter style! Trust me, I know the outfit featured in this post isn’t realistic for most of my readers this time of year!
This was the perfect time for this kimono to make its way back into a post. It’s been about a year since I started my blog and this kimono was featured in one of my first outfits! Those photos are actually still some of my favorites (although I used to over edit the sh*t out of my pics). Something no one tells you is that if you want a super perfect, cohesive, themed feed, then you better be prepared to put a heavy edit on all your pictures. So many bloggers pull this off so well, but personally, I didn’t feel it worked for my outfit photos. Now I edit all my photos similarly and plan my feed such that they flow into one another. I think it’s working, *insert hands shrugging emoji*.
Let’s have a quick chat about this outfit since I’ve been blabbing. For starters, this kimono is perfect for winter because the color scheme is dark and warm. I wanted the print on the kimono to stand out so I paired it with neutral colors that would compliment it. The neutrals needed to be broken up though, which is why I added a simple necklace and went with a shoe that laced up. These tiny details draw the eye in without stealing attention away from the statement pieces. Namely, the kimono and bag.
