Shop the look:

The most incredible thing happened this weekend…it actually felt like fall here! I woke up shivering, and then proceeded to start frantically digging out sweaters, boots and hats…all while grinning like a fool. I feel like I have been waiting for cozy fall-like weather for ages! Don’t get me wrong, I love summer. But fall is the creme de la creme of the seasons.

I actually had the opportunity to break out a seasonally appropriate outfit. Yippee! I was really excited to finally wear my new kimono. I’ve developed a bit of an obsession with clothing that I can just drape over myself. I’m all about capes, kimonos, shawls, scarves, etc… Unique clothing that has some movement to it, basically. I received a ton of compliments on this kimono while I was out, too. Which made not wearing a coat and freezing a bit, worth it (I didn’t want to cover the kimono up the first chance I had to wear it)!

The day these photos were taken was windy and super cold, and it was actually lightly raining too. Which is also why it looks like I didn’t bother to brush my hair. Haha. My hair put up a good fight, but it was no match for the rain.. and then reverted back to its natural state of frizziness, despite having been carefully straightened just hours ago. I also have to share a blooper photo too, of my hair gone wrong. Haha. When I was going through photos this one cracked me up!

Blooper photo
Had to share this blooper photo. Haha. Like my horns?

It reminded me of a scene from Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. I think it’s “When Nature Calls” when they’re looking for the sacred white bat, and Ace has hair horns? But anyways, I digress. Haha.

    Have a great day!

    1. Hi Ada! Thank you! And thank you for stopping by my blog. 🙂 I’ll be sure to check yours out too.

  2. I love this outfit!! that kimono is so pretty! It’s finally sunny here but Ican’t wait until it’s cool enough that I can wear longer boots!


  3. I’ve been waiting for layering weather too! Love this kimono. the pattern is so beautiful! Those boots are also amazing!


    1. Thank you so much! It’s a bit hard to see in the photos, but the pattern on the kimono is actually a leaf pattern too! Very fall appropriate. 🙂

  4. This kimono is so amazing! I love it:) You look so cozy and cute for fall. Also, fun last pic. Love the boots you paired them with.


    1. Thank you, Joanna! I love this kimono! And these boots are so old, and I wear them to death every fall/winter. It will be a very sad day when they fall apart lol.

    1. Thank you, Jessica! And oh I agree, haha. I will be the first to complain when it dips below freezing. But fall is just the perfect weather (usually) in my opinion. 🙂

  5. This outfit is lovely and autumnal! I agree with you about “drapey” items, kimonos, shawls and capes and the likes are so beautiful and dramatic! Love them. The kimono you’re wearing is stunning and so are you.
    I also really like the blooper photo. I like your horns, you look like a cute deer 😛
    Much love

    1. Thank you so much, Mona! You are always so sweet! 🙂 This kimono is the best! And if you think I look like a cute deer in the blooper photo – I’ll take it! Haha. (That’s better than Ace Ventura! Haha.)

  6. You look beautiful and your outfit is gorgeous!! I love fall but I miss the summer. I love the sun every morning, it gives you more energy but the clouds and rain just make you feel lazy haha!
    Your super stylish! I have been on a lot of your posts and fell in-love with your outfits! <3

    1. Aw, thank you so much! That means so much to me to hear! And I agree the sunlight and summer does give you a lot more energy, that’s for sure. Haha.

  7. Yay, an Ace Ventura reference 😉 I think you look great! I didn’t even notice your hair wasn’t as done up as usual, you beauty you 😉 But wind…yeah, that’s the worst. I’m compiling a montage of blooper photos for later this year and wind definitely ruined a few of my shots in a funny way too 😉 XO

    1. Aw you are too kind, Lauren! The wind is my mortal enemy for blogging haha. I can’t wait to see your blooper photos! That’s a fantastic idea for a post. 🙂

  8. This kimono is gorgeous! You look gorgeous with it drapped over your shoulders. Wasn’t it cold this weekend?! Wow, I was freezing haha. That blooper photo is too funny lol.


    1. Thank you so much, Amanda! It was SO cold this weekend, but this might be the first time in my life I was happy about it being cold, haha. This ridiculously hot, never-ending summer was killing me, haha.
