There's something in the silhouette of a kimono that just keeps me coming back for more. The fluidity of the shape gives a nonchalant ease that I constantly crave. Not to mention, for layering junkies like myself, this piece allows you to keep up your old habits of wearing multiple pieces at a time, while still keeping it easy, breezy, and cool for summer (all good things!). I paired it with my favorite black overalls, a Victorian high collar blouse, and some orangey-brown clogs for a contrast of color. Speaking of summer dressing, I've recently realized clogs are the perfect substitute for ankle boots for these scorching days upon us. They wrap around your ankle and still look great with cropped pants, but conveniently also allow your feet to stay cool. Praise! This is where style and climate must find a middle ground, and these clogs seem to be just that.
