inspiration: kimonos

top: one | two | three
bottom: four | five | six
Last week I really had an itch to go shopping, and even though we've been traveling all over ever since school got out, I haven't actually found a way to do some "real" shopping, so instead I took to the internet (as one does when you live in a city with few shopping options). I ended up finding a bunch of cute things to order from ASOS, ranging from pieces that are pretty typical me, like this fun baseball tee (even for the tall girls!), to something a little out of my normal style like this cute lace top (reviews to come). I have always like kimono-style tops, so I ended up adding this one to my order as well, thinking it would be the one thing for sure I was going to send back (I had added a few things just to try on since ASOS as a free return policy so there was nothing to lose). 

Turns out, it ended up being my favorite piece from the order! I loved the pretty print, that it's simple enough to be worn in a few different ways, but different enough that it's something unique in my closet. I loved hearing everyone's feedback on instagram about it, and for now, I think I'm going to keep it. I can't wait for the weather to cool down just a little bit so I can wear it with some black skinnies and my new pendant necklace I just got.

A couple of options for purchase below, or you can follow this easy tutorial (I LOVE the fabric she made hers in!)....
