Skirt: SIMILAR, Shoes: SIMILAR ($53)

Reason #1 why you need a kimono in your life this spring/summer: restaurants, offices and stores love to overdo it with the AC during the warmer months and no one wants to cover an otherwise perfect outfit with a puffer coat, in June. Kimonos are light, but add a nice layer to help you retain some heat while also retaining your utter chic-ness. By the way, one of my pet peeves is when people use “chic” (pronounced sheek), when they should be using “chick” (pronounced exactly how it looks).

Reason #2 why you need a kimono in your life this spring/summer: you can literally eat whatever you want and no one will ever know if you cover the evidence with a nice, comfy kimono… 🙂 (yep, I said it).

Reason #3 why you need a kimono in your life this spring/summer: throw on the most basic pieces in your wardrobe (like I did today), add a patterned kimono, and voila: not so basic look!

I got this particular kimono/pocho (hybrid maybe? Kimoncho?) from Gray Monroe (you can click HERE to go to their site, which is packed full of awesome, unique pieces), but unfortunately I think it’s now out of stock. However this one (or click HERE), is still in stock and is a great cozy option for those cold places you have to frequent. HERE is another, lighter (kimoncho :)) option if you are lucky enough to be warm-natured. ♥♥♥
