Hello Friends and family! I hope you are having a happiest Friday! We still haven’t planned anything for this weekend, and by saying PLAN I mean we haven’t decided where to take pictures on Sunday. Since I came back from San Francisco, we’ve wanted to go to Austin for the shoot, but the weather has been playing with us for the past two weeks. Who knows we might make it happen this Sunday if my phone don’t lie because as of now, it says it will be mostly sunny. What are your plans for this weekend? anything exciting?
By now, you guys should have noticed how much I love to have a statement piece in my outfits. In this case, I went for a casual look, that could be used for any daily occasions.
- Plain black bodysuit
- Distressed denim pants in any color; I preferred dark grey because of the black body suit.
- Any kind of shoes, from tennis shoes (here) to flats, wedge sandals or booties. I chose to stay with my dark shades and wear my favorite chunky platform sandals.
- Last but not least => any type of Kimono or kaftan. 🙂
I have to thank the beautiful city of angels and my dear friend who made me want to buy all the Kimonos on the planet that I can’t afford! I was cleaning my messy closet and making it ready for summer, when noticed this beautiful kimono which my fabulous friend passed on to me and couldn’t resist not sharing it with you guys. I can honestly say I have worn it more than zillion times for the past year. It is such a special piece that every time I put on, all the gold detailing, flowers, color combination, and patterns remind me of my Middle Eastern roots LOL.
Okay, let’s go back to why I chose to stay with dark shades and mostly black. My main focus on this look was making sure that the kimono is standing out ( Of course I wanted to look skinnier too ). Also, the kimono itself has black color in it, so I tried to make the black parts blend in with the rest of my outfit and make the gold details, flowers, patterns, and all the cream, white, and red colors to shine out through the whole look. I went with all gold accessories to blend in with the kimono’s detail work, and stayed with black purse to make sure the focus is still on the statement piece.
One of the great things about kimonos is that you can wear them with almost anything and still look unique and stylish.
Examples=> midi skin tight dress, Pencil skirt, any denim pants or shorts, and over bathing suit.
I was wearing:
Bodysuit: American Apparel
Shoes: Zara, Old, Similar

I hope you enjoyed the post!
