This spring/summer here in Maryland has been weird to say the least.
First it was super cold…then it got super hot.
It appears to be staying at the super-hot phase now, and that doesn’t bother me one little bit because I hate the cold.
Now that it’s nice out, I can wear really light and flowy clothes to stay cool.
My personal fashion motto in the summer is as follows: COMFORT IS KEY!
Growing up I hated that loose, lightweight style…I avoided it like the plague, but now that I have gotten older, I have begun to delve into different styles….my latest obsession are kimono cardigans.
These are ideal for summer since they are so light and loose and easy to just throw on before you go out…they fit my comfort is key motto!
I got my first kimono cardigan from the Etsy shop Mickey and Chicken, and I am beyond thrilled with it.
I am in love with the fabric! I know it looks a bit like a floral pattern, but if you get up close, it looks more like a stone-tie dye pattern. Also, this is the only purple garment that I currently own…
The main reason why I have not gotten one of these cardigans before is because the sleeves are way too long on me….if the sleeves come below my elbow and are as loose as they are on kimono cardigans, I cannot work…I just can’t. I am always distracted by my sleeves…
Thankfully, the shop owner, Janet, was able to shorten the sleeves to my preferred length, as well as the back of the cardigan.
I am 5′ 3″ and the cardigan would have dwarfed me if Janet had not been so willing to customize it for me! (I want to thank her SO MUCH for being willing to do this for me!)
I was also sent a nude sequin tote bag to review as well!
I love tote bags….I am one of those people who wants to carry EVERYTHING with me that I might ever possibly need on an outing…(NO I was not a girl scout! But “Be Prepared” might as well be my motto.) This is made out of nice fabric that is sturdy, yet soft and lightweight. I know that it will not be tearing on me:)
Here is another selfie with my new tote bag….I transferred all of the items from my main purse to this tote bag as soon as I got it in the mail, and I have been carrying it around with me every since! So here is the rundown of both of these products!
I really love both of these items….they are perfect for summertime because of the fabric they are made with. The kimono cardigan is especially perfect for pairing with a plain dress as a cover-up, or to pull together a pair of shorts and a tank top. I LOVE IT!
The tote bag will definitely fulfill anybody’s need for sparkle! 🙂 As someone who loves glitter and sparkle, this is perfect for me. It also is a great day trip tote bag, or for anyone who carries the contents of a small apartment around with them all the time. I also feel that it will hold up really well.
Janet is a wonderful person to work with! She really knows what she is doing!
Also, the shop also has a wide variety of scarves, so if you are into scarves, I would suggest you check out the shop!
