aaand we're back

Angie kimono top, Macys
same ol' jeans, Ross
Merona tee, Target

    The first day back after three weeks of break can be tough, so I went with something uncomplicated for yesterday's outfit - a tee and jeans dressed up with my new kimono top. I scored this top for $11.99 during the Cyber Monday specials, and got it for free, thanks to some gift cards I discovered in my wallet.

      
     I hesitated about buying yet another kimono top, but my rationalization was that it was a different color, print and cut than the other ones I own. What's nice about this top is that it's tan with black crochet trim and has navy and red in the print, which makes it easy to pair with other items. Another rationalization - this is shorter than my other kimonos,which might make it fun to style (belted?) with a dress. It also looks cute peeking out under certain jackets.
    What is a clothing item or accessory that you think you might own a few too many of? I'd love to hear that I'm not the only one who collects pretty things ...

  1. Very cute. And it looks comfy. Don't worry about buying too many of any one item; your desire to do so is because that thing works for you. It will become your signature style.

  2. Happy New Year! And I think this top was definitely worth purchasing; it's fabulous!


    I tend to buy too many black skirts and, lately, too many pairs of black ankle boots. Seriously, so many boots.

  3. Happy New Year, Gracey! And I don't think you can own too many black skirts and black ankle boots ... there are so many delightful twists on these classic items, I'm sure you need more than a few. ;)

  4. Ally, you've just confirmed my suspicion that you'd be fun to shop with. :) I do like to dress up for work on occasion, but comfort is a priority. As a teacher, I stand or move around a lot and need to be able to do so without having to adjust my clothing or feel uncomfortable.

  5. I like the kimono tops on you. I think I tend to buy a lot of plaid/spotty/stripy tops.

  6. I think those are classic prints, Kat, and thus you have room for more than one version in your closet. ;)
