styling a boho-inspired kimono with Chic Style Boutique

Thursday, May 19, 2016

What's going on here? Two style-posts in one week? Yes, you really are that lucky. haha

Okay, for real though, I'm lucky because Chic Style Boutique wanted to send me a piece of clothing to review, um, yes please!!! 

Shipping was insanely fast. Now, I know that's the shipping company to credit for that, but normally when I get stuff sent from the US it takes FOREVER!

They picked one of their new arrivals, this beautiful kimono for me to try. I immediately loved the piece because boho-inspired anything is all the rage; however, honestly, I panicked a little and thought "um okay, this is gorgeous, but how the heck am I going to wear it?" True story. 

Whenever I am confused how to style something I just get back to basics because overthinking it usually leads to overdoing it. I'm a hot mess on most days, no need to amp that up.

I decided it doesn't get more basic than jeans and a tank so I went with that. 

Here's how it turned out:

should have thrown on a pendant necklace in hindsight... next time...

festival ready... well, minus the sitter and an actual festival to go to

On their website they have this kimono styled with shorts and boots. Not entirely sure I could pull this off at all, let alone as cute as below BUT I may attempt it at some point (even if I don't leave my bedroom).

I really do love this kimono. It's not something I would have picked for myself, but I think that's what I like so much about it. I love getting something that is every bit as nice in person as it looks in the pic and I'm so happy this has found a forever home in my closet.

Naturally, I have checked out the website a few times (okay, more times than I'm comfortable admitting) and it is full of pieces that really mesh with my style (hence I was eager for the review). Casual but comfy and on trend. That and prices are super reasonable always key for this somewhat savvy momma.

Here are a few other things I'm seriously considering adding to my closet:

chambray dress

pink crochet back tank

mama bear tank

cold shoulder top

pink maxi dress

In case you can't tell, I had a hard time keeping to a few items to share lol but had to stop myself before this post got embarrassingly long.
