Versatile Style by Tracey

Kimono Love…

Posted on: June 18, 2015

Kimonos are so big this Season,

but I’ve been Rocking them for quite a few years now and will probably do so even 

when the trend has faded….

They are a wonderful completer piece for Spring/Summer

I’ve had this kimono for several years and my love for it is still going strong. 

I bought it from Steinmart because of all the different colors that would make it very versatile

Kimonos seemed to stir up the most angst among the GYPO Summer Style Challenge participants.

It was nice to see so many embrace the trend despite misgivings and end up loving it…

Nothing touched my heart more than when one of my regular readers 

sent me a picture of herself in a kimono , recently!

Still can’t believe I am wearing more shorts this year.

These are 7 inch rise from Old Navy and I love them with the Clark’s Wedges,

The addition of the wedges helps my curvy petite figure.  

A lot of the challengers had great luck with finding Kimonos at Maurices

Check out this how this wonderful blogger styles a kimono for the 50’s , 60’s and 70’s woman! 

 

Dear Readers , you know I love completer pieces and along with kimonos, short sleeve cardigans, and shrugs, that I also love vests for Summer over tank tops and I bought a new one.

I loved this one by Liz Claiborne NY via QVC

Liz Claiborne New York Snap Front Vest with Eyelet Details

The extra eyelet detail really sold me , as any extra feminine touch suits my style!  

This is going to be fabulous for Fall/Winter as well…

Gratitude

I am grateful for my knee feeling much better today! 

I am grateful that my sons woke up and got to my youngest’s private bowling lesson today, because this insomniac was still asleep!  

I am grateful that my daughter made it back to Boston and that I touched base with her last night…. she found that a mouse had gotten into all her food upon her return. The roommates had the exterminator come that day, so let’s hope this situation ends soon..

I am grateful that Saturday night we begin our fun Summer bowling league!  

I am grateful that both my son and husband are being such troopers as they deal with poison ivy outbreak after their yard work this weekend…
