After posting this photo on Instagram, I got so many messages about floral kimonos that I knew I wanted to do a post dedicated to some great ones I’ve found. Today’s post features that, plus some peeks at the Addison Necklace, which is a piece I’ve sold out of previously but will become available again in the shop as part of the NB Basics Collection later this week. Yep, that’s right—later this week!!
I love how easy and effortless kimonos are. Thanks to their thin, breezy fabric they make a perfect summer layer and they totally take a boring outfit (like mine above) and make it into something feminine and notable.
Sadly the one I’m wearing is sold out, but I’ve rounded up a bunch of alternatives that I love down at the bottom of this post. If you don’t have a kimono in your closet yet, you should definitely think about investing in one this season—you really only need one, and if you choose the right pattern you can mix and match it with a ton of your wardrobe. I even wear mine as a swim coverup!
As far as the necklace goes, it’s a simple, minimalist piece that really can be worn with anything. I originally sold it in the shop in May last year and it was a fast favorite. As you know, I’ve been pondering a small capsule collection of metallic pieces called the NB Basics Collection for a little white, and this one is a perfect addition to the mix. Unlike in the past, it no longer will be a limited edition piece, but rather will be restocked if and when it sells out and will also be available in both gold and silver. Yay!
