I feel like I was taking my final exams in May and I blinked and now I’m starting my senior year of college and summer is just yet another memory. It’s funny how fast life flies by when you don’t want it to but when it comes time for school and work, days drag on and time stops(I swear there are more than 24 hours in a day lately). I’m gonna do a little reminiscing today because I am feeling nostalgic and would do anything to be back here in this moment. For one of my many trips I took this past summer, I had the privilege of going to Michigan for the first time with my best friend and her family. It was the best getaway from the Texas heat and I loved it there! We took a trip to Lake Michigan for a day to explore downtown and spend some time at “the beach”. I think whoever named it was half asleep or something because this by no means is a lake, its a freaking ocean. I didn’t get the chance to go to the beach this year but this definitely made up for it. I fell in love with the red lighthouse, but most of all, the weather!
Because it was in the low 70’s, I got to wear something a little warmer. I paired my black fringe kimono and flounce swimsuit top with my floppy hat and these patterned pants, which are extremely comfortable might I add. I have three pairs of pants like these in different colors/patterns and I feel like I am wearing sweat pants! I’ve worn them on long trips in a car with sandals and to dinner or church with wedges, they are so versatile and fun! On another note, I went on a kimono kick this summer and can’t stop won’t stop. They are the best thing that’s happened to me since One Tree Hill. I don’t want to count the number of kimonos I have because it might just be pathetic. My kimono collection consists of mostly floral except for this one and I have found them at stores like TjMaxx, Ross, Nordstrom Rack, and Target. I hope they don’t go out of style anytime soon or I will be scavenging for something else to wear. Well that’s all for this week, but kimonover and check back next week for new posts coming your way! XOXO
