I already talked about the one piece you need for a beach vacation. Well, here’s the second: the kimono. I’ve been traveling to a bunch of beach resorts this month and I’ve been all about that kimono life. A kimono can easily take you from day to night… and it doesn’t crease during packing!
I first brought this kimono with me to Mexico, and wore it as a coverup on the beach. I particularly like tie kimonos because they offer a little more coverage when you sit by the pool for lunch. I later used the same kimono to bring my denim shorts to dinner during my weekend in Aruba (more to come on that trip soon!). It’s a great way to dress up even the most simplest outfits and helps keep you warm when the ocean breeze sets in. Another bonus? The kimono doubles as a robe when you lounge back in your room at night.
