Black Laces

For Love and Lemons Chi Chi Kimino

It’s been a long time since I’ve worn this kimono. I can front and say it’s because of the weather, but really it’s mostly because the kimono is a tad intimidating. When wearing it, especially considering that it’s adorned with frilly laces, you always tread the line of looking like you’re wearing lingerie (and not in a good way). For today’s outfit, I’m pairing the kimono with black/dark grey monochromatic colored items, which I think combats the danger of looking like I walked out in my unmentionables.

By the way, if you guys are loving the jewelry pieces I’m wearing in this post, you can try it out yourself for free. Yep, you read that right, you can try out the bracelet for free courtesy of Rocksbox jewelry subscription service. Just make sure you enter the code mimiandchichixoxo when you check out.

Outfit Combo: kimono from For Love and Laces (find similar here and here), woven swing tank from Frenchi, sandals from H&M, clemence minaudiere clutch from Pour La Victoire, aztec bangle from House of Harlow, two stone bracelet from Ashiana London, golden amulet double ring from Wildfox.

    At first I thought you were wearing a jumpsuit with a kimono! That gave me a spark of inspiration – never thought to have paired a jumpsuit with a kimono- smart move! lol. Love this monochrome look -so smart!

    It definitely has a bit of a lingerie feel but I think you’ve made all the right choices to offset that a bit. It looks great!
