What’s Old Is New
Kimonos are front and center of the fashion spotlight this season. The term kimono actually means “a thing to wear“.
Well, what a fantastic thing to wear! Wearing one is great! I’m loving this style in jackets and cover-ups. My first purchase of the kimono style was last fall. I purchased two French terry kimono style sweatshirt jackets from the Gap. (here) I wore them constantly all winter. So, when I started finding all these soft silky kimonos in the local shops I was over the moon. I found this blue one in DSW shoes. Go figure. Well, I have worn it with jeans, shorts and a green dress so far. That’s the fun of this multi colored pieces. They can be worn so many different ways and as an added bonus they can be easily folded and tucked inside a tote or bag.

In And Out All Day Long
Casual dressing, what do you wear on ordinary days? I want comfort along with style. And so my answer is keep it as simple as possible.
Because I have a home office, most of my days are just generally casual dressing days! I always have lots to do with nothing in particular that is calling out for special dressing concerns. Many times I call that day Monday. Since I’m busy clearing up all those loose ends from the weekend and preparing myself for the coming week, I never really know what my day will hold. And so my dressing style needs to be simple and casual.
Today I am wearing an outfit that has been in my closet for ages. It’s simply shorts, a top and flip flops. That’s one of my definitions of casual Floridian dressing. Sloppy doesn’t do it for me, but simple and comfortable, that’s my attitude.
