Kimonos: The Perfect Cover-Up For Traveling

This is a dress I wore to Savannah.  If you missed my other Savannah Fashion Post, you can see it HERE.  This is a beautiful, iridescent blush sheath dress I picked up on clearance at H&M last year for only $4.00.  I previously showed it to you in THIS POST styled with a denim jacket and no belt.  In Savannah, I wore it with a silver belt and I had a kimono that I wore in the early morning and evening when it was chillier.  



I styled the dress with a black straw hat to protect me from the Georgia sun, comfortable Adrienne Vittadini rose gold sport sandals so I could walk for hours, and I carried a straw bag that I could easily stuff my kimono into when I wasn't using it.



Kimonos are the perfect cover up when traveling because they can slip so easily into a bag.  My husband purchased this one for me at Charlotte Russe last year.


Here is the kimono worn with the dress.  It is a sheer solid black with a floral print.  The colors of the flowers in the kimono will go with almost anything!



The flowers form a border on the back of the kimono, but are scattered throughout the rest of the garment.



This dress is so comfortable to wear on a hot and humid day!  And the kimono adds just the extra warmth I need for cool mornings or evenings, or when entering an over-air-conditioned building.


Have a Great Day!  Amy

    1. I know, right? You don't see that everyday. And they had about four other colors. My husband is still mad at me to this day for not buying one in every color. haha!

  3. I love kimonos but as of yet I haven't found one I like well enough to spend money on. Your outfit is great for a day of sightseeing. I have those shoes you are wearing also, they are so comfortable.

    1. I know what you mean. I own three kimonos and do not wear them often. I love them on everyone else, but I always feel like I'm wearing a bathrobe outside of my house when I have one on. However, as I stated in this post, they are so perfect for traveling or even just throwing them in your bag when running errands to have on-hand in heavily air-conditioned buildings.

  6. Your dress is beautiful! I love it belted and the kimono is perfect with it! While we don't travel a lot, a kimono is my warm weather stape! I love them for a little colour and sun coverage without too much warmth on a hot day!

    Hope that you are having a great weekend! It's a busy but fun one here.
