Aloha Kimono – Made By Kari Jane

   
    
    
    
 

Kimonos have definitely been a favorite of mine the last couple years.  I recently got my sewing machine fixed and felt inspired to make my own Kimono! Dan and I are planning on going to Hawaii this year and I thought it would be fun to make a colorful Hawaiian inspired Kimono.  I will be adding the Aloha Kimono to my etsy shop soon, but just wanted to share the first one I made with everyone!  I took inspiration from the fit and design of each of my favorite kimonos in my closet and came up with my own design. I wanted it to be long, oversized, very light, flowy, and with fringe.  This kimono will be perfect for Hawaii!  I will be on the hunt for other fabrics and colors and will be adding a selection to my etsy shop soon.  Can’t wait!

This look is featuring one of my favorite dresses by H&M and my “Blush Floral Kimono” from OOTDFASH. I love how simple and elegant this look is. Each one of these pieces can be dressed up or down and can be worn in many different ways. This white H&M dress looks adorable on it’s own, but adding the kimono was the perfect touch. I was super excited about getting this floral kimono in the mail! I usually blog about more casual looks but I just felt like getting dressed up 🙂 I’m also wearing a long silver necklace and some silver rings from my husband.
