kimono button down

Pocket Kimono

· this outfit, six reasons ·

February 29, 2016

Okay, let’s get right into it. Other than the color of this kimono / jacket thing, which I’m still trying to figure out, here’s six reasons why I love this #ootd:

  1. White button down. So fresh and so clean, clean. My white button down from Banana is one of my favs. (Good thing I have the same style in two colors/prints.) I absolutely love the crisp and contemporary style of the white button down under the gold–wait, what color is that?–draped-style jacket. Kimono? Note: for a good time, only half way button your white button down. Button up? #itsbanana
  2. Pockets. Anything that has pockets that I can put my hands in for no reason and just hang out = #winning. If I’m debating a new purchase, pockets or sans pockets could be the determining factor. Remember that one time this LBD had pockets? That was awesome.
  3. High-waisted. These pantsssssssssss, they get me every time. And I have a thing for black pants if you haven’t noticed. These pleat at the top so the fit is perfectly draped and fabulous and comfortable. Also, cue subtle belt action.
  4. Leopard. No wonder my baby sis was so excited about my Christmas gift! These flats are all I could have ever wanted.
  5. Comfort. No worries about taking your pajamas off today–you can get dressed only without getting dressed. Aaaaand these pieces have got you covered.
  6. Lipstick. Red lips, no makeup, cue glasses, no problem.
