As warm summer days turn into cooler summer nights, lightweight jackets are a must. I was majorly inspired by the way Katie Holmes rocked her cute kimono with jeans in New York City. So I decided to bring my floral kimono with me to San Diego this week.
A kimono is so versatile because you can wear it as a coverup over your swimsuit, as a pretty piece piece of loungewear, or as a flowy jacket over jeans and shorts. When you do one with a black background, the Japanese inspired piece easily goes from summer into fall.

I amplified the floral print of my kimono with my fave cami that I have in just about every color. Then, like Katie, add a block heel (mine are on sale!) for comfortable height.

Katie Holmes is a great inspiration. I love everything about this look. I’ve always been a bit hesitant when it comes to wearing kimonos on my tiny frame but this looks inspires me to give it a try.

I’m totally loving the way you’ve styled this kimono and pulled off K. Holmes’s look so well!
I love this outfit!! Kimonos are such perfect transitional pieces too.
A great outfit … kimono is a great piece to transition seasons 😉
