Kimono Haiku

Posted on: June 12, 2015

Last Night the GYPO Summer Style Challenge Facebook page 

had a lot of fun making up Haiku’s about the challenge.

I wrote four ,but decided to wear a Kimono today to honor you with just one..


Kimono Haiku 

Boho Kimono

Flowy, Feminine,Flirty

A Past Life Hippy? 

I’ve had this one from Steinmart for quite a few years and never tire of it.

I am wearing my new Diane Gilman Cuffed Capris 

and I just had to buy another color Clark’s Wedges


While I love fashion jewelry, it’s really nice toe wear my fine jewelry pieces, like this sapphire necklace my husband bought me years ago.  

I also love wearing hoop earrings a lot, A nod to my Boho style.

These are a lightweight nickle free version I love from  Simply Whispers


If you are a regular reader, you might recognize my bowling tote bag! 

Yes, I went bowling today and will be doing so a lot this summer.

It’s important for my son to practice a lot before his State competition in July.

I purchased a Summer Fun Card where we pay $39.95 and get 3 games every week day for the entire Summer.

We did this last year and had lots of fun!  

If that’s not enough we joined a fun league with the parents and children teams for Saturday Nights…

A great inside fun for Summer , especially good when our temps this week are in the 90’s !  

Check out your local AMF bowling alley for details on how you to can join the fun! 


I am grateful for break downs that lead to lessons learned for my children.

I am grateful for the fun we had bowling today! 

I am grateful for finding my motivation to lose this weight and that I worked out first thing this morning. 

I am grateful for a good night’s sleep.. I stayed up later due to my midnight walk, but slept in until noon, getting a full 8-9 hours, something that hasn’t happened in weeks!  

I am grateful that I finally was able to stop by my friend’s home today to bring her daughter the wonderful clothing items I had purchased for the budding fashionista!

I like your haiku, and you motivated me today to go out and buy a flowy, sheer kimono! My first, and I think I’m really going to like it. Thanks for the inspiration, Tracey!

Wonderful! Hope you have fun with it!

I really like the kimono; the colors are pretty! Wondering… are you close to the Outerbanks? We’re headed there next week, and I’m hoping the weather is suppose to be good. 🙂

We are about 2.5 hours away from Outer banks and our weather this week has been hot, going into the 90’s. Last week it was a week of grey clouds and rain… I think next week is some PM showers but still hot temps. I hope you enjoy the Outer Banks!

Thanks! I’m hoping for warm weather as we have been having cooler temps here at home, and I’m ready for a warm summer! I tried your squash recipe tonight; it was really good! Thanks for sharing it. 🙂

Well if warm is what you’re looking for, you will find it…glad you liked the squash and tomatoes!

Well, on our trip we found the heat, and it sure was hot! Over 100 with the heat index. We were in your neck of the woods when we took a different route home.

This is unseasonably hot. I hope you were still able to enjoy your vacation!
