Domo Arigato

5.14.2014

Hello friends!
I hope your day is going swell. I'm spending the day cleaning house and grocery shopping--exciting life, I tell you what :)
I've been wanting to give the kimono trend a try and when I saw this bright floral WITH tassels (!) I knew this was the one. I planned on pairing it with a white tee, but when I saw this striped one hanging in my closet, I thought that would really add a punch to the look. I wore this to the cinco de mayo party I mentioned yesterday. Although kimonos have a Japanese history, something about it also reminded me of a Mexican shawl, so I figured it would work.

What do you think? Will you be sporting a kimono this summer? 
I'm thinking this could also make a cute swim cover-up!

those tassels certainly make this kimono look more mexican than japanese. i haven't bought one yet, they all look a bit like pajamas to me :/ i need to find the perfect one like you did :)
