I'm excited to be collaborating with fellow bloggers Toni, Tori, and Blair for our Traveling Kimono project, in which we each styled Toni's gorgeous floral fringe kimono and sent it on to the next blogger to style and photograph. As you can see from the variety of ways in which we wore it, the piece is both versatile and functional with a down-to-earth, bohemian vibe that I always find appealing. As the ladies demonstrate, it works just as easily as a swim cover-up as it does with shorts or skinny jeans. (You might know from reading my blog that I have a hard time saying no to fringe and florals, so this kimono holds a special place in my heart.)
A big thank you to Toni for letting us all play dress-up with it!
My favorite floral jeans and a slouchy tee in neutral gray served as a canvas for layering the kimono, and my studded red ankle boots add a shot of color to the laid-back look.
