How to Style a Kimono

how to wear a kimono | almost getting it together

I love a good kimono moment. Davida told me she missed my outfit posts (and okay, I kind of miss them too sometimes, so you may see more of them) and paparazzi-ed me the entire day. I can’t say that I hated it. You have her to thank for all these amazing photos.

I have a love-hate relationship with the camera, but I’m sure anyone under the age of 22 does. Everyone under 22 is selfie-obsessed and is totally okay with posting awful photos of themselves.

Wondering how to style a kimono? Kimonos feel a little tricky to wear, but really just think festival fashion or street style – destroyed denim shorties and booties or dark skinny denim and heels for a night out.

I like to think of my style as effortless – my favorite thing to wear in the summer is denim shorties, a loose tank, bright colored bralette and aviators or Raybans.

Do you love kimonos as much as me? Do you love the selfie or hate the selfie?

That’s it, I’m done food blogging and will be your full-time photographer. The camera loooooooves you. So I am not photogenic at all (neither is curt) but that doesn’t stop me from taking selfies…that are sent directly to your snapchat!

What are you talking about, you and C are both so photogenic – you’re going to have little model babies. You’ve already been a model mommy to your dog so you know what to do.

I love that kimono! So cute! I don’t think I’d be able to figure out what the heck to wear it with though, so it probably won’t be seeing the inside of my closet anytime soon. Selfies make me feel like a tool, so I don’t ever take them, but I don’t mind when others do!

Girl just throw on some denim shorties or jeggings, a tank and your kimono and you’re GOLDEN.

This is why I need a personal stylist – I’m horrible with that kinda thing. I would have no idea what to wear with a kimono! Clearly, you’ve got it down pat ;-)

I honestly can’t say that I’ve ever worn a kimono… or even knew that one could be worn as a modern piece of clothing. Yes… my fashion knowledge is a sad thing. But selfies make me happy! Even if I feel all sorts of awkward taking them.

Okay, good to know I’m not the only one who feels insanely awkward taking selfies!

Why you gotta be so hot. Love love LOVE the kimono – you look great. I don’t mind if other people take selfies, but for me, I don’t take them often because I am just so damn awkward. :(

My selfies are always SOOO dorky. I’m not good at making funny faces or looking seductive lol.

I love this kimono on you! I really don’t know if I like the kimono look or not and it is very confusing for me. I guess because I live in England I feel like it wouldn’t fit the weather here, whereas if I was somewhere hot I feel it would go well over a swimsuit as a cover up or shorts and a basic t. I love how you have styled it here though!
