Unstructured Kimono

Posted on: June 24, 2013

You Look Fab’s Angie really turned us all onto the Kimono style jackets for this season.  She went on to add a second article about wearing arty ones with denim.  I had been meaning to pull out this one I purchased from Steinmart last year and wore weekly last season, before blogging, so no pictures….


I was really happy in debuting this and realizing that the trend of small florals is here , so this works for both! 

I love the initiative my youngest takes in photographing me and this taking it from the side rather than front is all his own!   He seems to do it only when I am standing against my favorite tree..


There are so many colors in this that it really is a versatile piece.  Last year I wouldn’t have dared to wear it open like this.  I was 42 lbs heavier and needed to tie it to create a waist…


I tied it here and still love how it drapes. The headband was a neccessity this humid day… My daughter came home from work, too her hair down declaring , ” You can tell it’s HUMID!”.   I told her she looked like she had a lions mane…


I usually take a side shot and didn’t plan on it after using the tied and untied versions… My young photographer, pointed out my lack of a side view and suggested that I include it… Gotta love when your child helps you and doesn’t just see you as a pain for asking for help with photos daily…

Dear Readers, If you haven’t tried one of these great Kimono styled jackets, I highly recommend them. I would love to get a more arty one that has the Japanese theme to it.  


I am grateful that despite our need for a new heating/cooling system, that we are able to with the use of water turn it on for an hour or so and remove the terrible heat and humidity and it styas cool the rest of the afternoon… Scared of how much my water bill will go up….

I am grateful that my daughter is going to make a pot roast in the crock pot and give me two days off of cooking dinners!!!!

I am grateful for summer, quality time and conversations,   late nights, cooking on the grill, lazy days and sleeping in…

This kimono is great and I can see why you really like it. The colors really make it a versatile piece and can be paired with so much. I hear you on the humidity. It has been so hot and crazy. My hair looked like a lion’s mane over the weekend! Heather

You look very pretty!

I love the colours! 🙂

Thank you, as you can see I have no fear of color.
