Last weekend I was strolling through Nordstrom when I stumbled upon this gorgeous, embroidered kimono. I couldn’t take my eyes off of it, and after picking it up and putting it down about 10 times I decided to take it home (Anyone else shop like that? Some of my friends hate it, haha!!).
While it might look super “summery” at first glance, this kimono sold me because it’s actually an awesome summer to fall transitional piece. First, the base color is “marina”, an icy blue hue that Pantone named as one of the fall 2017 color trends. Second, it can be worn with jeans, shorts, over a simple dress, you name it! It’s the perfect piece to break up basics and layers.
My favorite part about this, hands down, is the embroidery. ESPECIALLY the unique coloring of the embroidery! The maple is an unexpected, but gorgeous compliment to the shades of pink and red. And the yellow pops beautifully against the blue. Did you know all of these colors were prominent on the fall 2017 runways, too? Shocking, but true! Brights are spilling over into fall and I don’t hate it! More wear for our wardrobes, ladies!!
Well, if you love this as much as I do, you can shop it here for under $50. I got the XS/S, and fit is true to size. While it’s not part of Nordstrom’s big anniversary sale, I do think it’s a unique statement piece for fall. If you want some recommendations on some great pieces that are part of the sale, you can find my top 30 picks across 6 different categories right here. If you haven’t read the post yet, don’t be scared. I kept it SO stinking simple. I get overwhelmed easily myself!
So what are you guys loving/looking for for fall? Colors, styles, brands?? Leave a comment and let me know! I love it when your thoughts, ideas and opinions can guide my posts. I feel like I can be far more useful that way. 🙂
