Kimonos are definitely my favorite layering piece in the summer because of how lightweight they are (I last wore one here)! The North Carolina heat makes wearing any other kind of layer impossible right now. My favorite way to wear a kimono currently is with a basic dress, like this lace-up one that I recently picked up from Kohl’s. When paired with my new straw bag from J.Jill and Trades of Hope statement earrings, it has definitely become my go to outfit this summer. The other way that I like to wear kimonos is with a basic tee and a pair of denim shorts. What do you think of kimonos?

Here are the items that I’m currently craving this week! This week is all neutral items that can be mixed and matched in so many different ways. I already have this Old Navy swing dress in a floral print, but I’m definitely loving this solid black one. It’s perfect with a pair of sandals now, and it’s a great layering piece to wear with jackets in the fall too. Also, I’m definitely thinking that these Gap mules need to be mine. I mean, how cute are they? Which is your favorite, and what are you currently craving?

A panama hat is my favorite accessory this time of year! I purchased this one from J.Crew a couple years ago, and I wear it all the time in the summer. It’s such great quality, and it’s a piece that goes with so many different outfits which definitely makes it worth the price. Today I wanted to share 4 different ways to wear a panama hat:
1. With a colorful dress
I wear a lot of dresses in the summer, and I love that a panama hat can make the outfit a little more interesting. This dress by Z Supply is one of my favorites in my closet, and you can see the original post here.
2. Paired with white denim
A love a good pair of white denim in the summer, and I definitely reach for them over and over again. White denim paired with a colorful top and panama hat is perfect for the weekend. You can see the original post here.
3. With a maxi dress
I wore this chambray dress a lot last summer when I was pregnant, and this panama hat is the perfect finishing touch. It also makes this outfit great for a trip to the beach. You can see the original post here.
4. Paired with denim shorts
As a new Mom I pretty much live in shorts on the weekend! On a side note, a panama hat is also a great way to disguise a bad hair day. You can see the original post here.
This white button down from J.Jill is one of my favorite pieces in my closet now. I really love it here paired with my favorite distressed jeans, gold earrings, and blue sandals for the weekend! I’ve also worn this button down shirt with a pair of denim shorts and these Steve Madden sandals too for a more casual look which is definitely a great option too. On a side note, you will rarely find me in heels these days, so these blue colorful sandals with a very slight heel are my current go- to shoes this summer. Do you have a white button down that you love?
