There are certain fashion trends that I really like, but I am not sure if I can pull them off. Do you ever feel like that? As of late, I have been obsessing with kimonos. Not sure why, I am not going to a music festival and I'm not 20 anymore, but I do love hippie inspired looks of a kimono paired with shorts or wide leg jeans like they wore in the 70's.

I may be a hippie at heart, but my conservative style always wins. The floral print of my kimono is so pretty, that I threw it on over this black lace summer dress for a pop of color. Without thinking it through, I later realized that it looks as though I had borrowed my daughters kimono to cover up my upper arms. I may just give up on this trend and stick to my classics, but it's always fun to try something new.
Have you tried the kimono?
