a lovely living

It’s been many months since I’ve had an actual outfit post to share with you all. You remember the kind where I actually pull myself together and use an actual camera to shoot some pretty pics and share some style ideas with you? We took some time over the weekend to shoot a few different looks that I’ll be sharing with you over the next week or so. And I have to say it feels really good to be able to create some content in the way I’m used to doing it. I’ve also taken the step to add presets to my blog images (as I’ve grown accustomed to doing on Instagram), and using Lightroom to edit them giving everything a more cohesive feel. Baby steps, but I’m learning and growing here :)

Let’s quickly break down this fun outfit. I shared a post with a bunch of kimono options last month which you can find here, many of which are still available. The one I am wearing today has sold out and restocked a few times, so you can keep an eye on it if interested. Not only are they an outfit maker, but they also make a great swimsuit coverup. There are so many pretty options out there, but the gist of it is to pair a bold kimono with a solid tank (white typically seems to be the best option) and bottoms. Bottoms can range from casual cut-offs to a bright pair of pull on pants as seen here. The elastic waist on these wide leg pants was an immediate selling point for me. I’m still finding it difficult to even put on a wire-bra these days, so comfort is obviously key! They also come in green and black if you want something a little more subtle. I bought this straw hat a year or two ago and it’s been my go-to for the beach and pool. It holds its shape very well. Lastly, I’m loving these Tkees sandals that I finally got my hands on. They continue to sell out for obvious reasons (so chic and so comfy and come at great price point), so I’d put your name on their email list to find out when your size is restocked. If you’re a half size like me, I’d size up. Scroll down to shop exact and similar pieces!
