Time to Break Out the Kimonos…

Posted on: April 21, 2015

Today we had a wonderful 80 degree breezy day…

For the GYPO Style Challenge outfit of the day, 

the outfit suggested dark jeans, grey t-shirt, bright cardigan,  and floral scarf. 


I at least have the grey top right…

Just kidding,  I opted for Old Navy Pixie pants and since it was too hot for me to want to sport a scarf, 

 the next best thing was to cover the grey tank with a printed kimono from last season. 


I tied the kimono right under the bustline , which is one way I like to wear them. 

I also wore a sapphire necklace that my husband gave me several years ago .  

The lipstick color is a one I recently purchased as a darker pink variety for the season.

And this bucket hat, I’ve had for 10 years, from the days when I had my consignment store…


It was so much fun to wear more summer pieces and sandals today.  

Dear Readers, My thoughts today were “Boston Strong”  as I chatted with my daughter at Boston College, who described all the cheering in the streets, police presence, and helicopters outside her apartment.  She ventured out and was in complete awe of the dedication of spectators who were in 36 degree rain, that could not dampen their enthusiasm.  She felt so blessed to witness this support and be a part of the magnificence of the Boston Marathon and the memory of those who suffered from the tragedy.

I am grateful for how well the birthday weekend went and the love of my family. 

I am grateful that my husband’s “Boston Strong” t-shirt arrived today, as he wanted to wear it on his Vegas trip tomorrow. 

I am grateful that  my husband was able to fit in a haircut for our youngest today before leaving on his trip. 

I am grateful for a fun trip to the grocery store and planning meals for just the two of us for the remainder of the week. 

I am grateful for a wonderful phone conversation with my sister in law.

Really pretty kimono! So glad you shared about tying them – I certainly had never considered it before. Great look, Tracey!

Glad you found that tip useful…

I just bought a kimono….isn’t it such a great, lightweight covering piece? Does yours have ties in the front? jodie

No ties in the front… I just gathered the material at the bustline and tied it myself. It shortens it as it is a longer one…I love kimono style lightweight jackets as completer pieces for Spring/Summer, I now have 5 or 6…started getting them 6 years ago…

And to think I just bought my first one. Maybe we need an intervention for you? ha ha!!

funny!!!! I am resisting buying more after adding a link in for tomorrow’s post… staying strong…
