A Dressed-Up Summer Kimono Outfit for Work or Church

Remember when I posted this fern kimono with shorts a few weeks ago, and I told you it would be back styled in a dressier summer kimono outfit for work or church? Well, it’s back. And bonus, it’s 30% off today!

This time I decided to wear the kimono over a white-on-white base. I love wearing a cardigan over a white top with white jeans, so why not a kimono? After all, a kimono is sort of like a summer cardigan.

This kimono is super lightweight and flowy, and the muted color palette is perfect with white.

When I shared it before, I was asked if it slips off the shoulders. I’m not sure how to answer that. I mean, it is sort of supposed to…that’s part of the charm!

It may slide back some, but it doesn’t fall off because it has armholes. Also, if you wear a t-shirt with sleeves (as opposed to a tank) the material of the kimono sort of sticks to the shoulder area of the tee, which helps it stay in place.

I’m wearing a white tank and white jeans underneath, and my ankle strap sandals are the perfect neutral to coordinate with this muted color palette.

These sandals are 30% off and come in 4 colors. I love this blush leather, but the ivory and tan are really nice too, and the snakeskin is fun and on trend. They run a little big; I recommend sizing down half in these. I have a 7.5.

Otherwise, they are verrrrry comfortable and walkable, especially considering the heel height. The straps are soft against the foot, and the block heel provides plenty of stability.

For size reference, I’m wearing a medium in the tank and a 29 in the jeans.

And isn’t this beaded stretch bracelet perfect with this kimono? It’s like they were made to go together.

I’m also wearing the gold stone station bracelet I wore with this kimono last time.

I bought them together, and I think they work together beautifully so I just kept the pairing in tact.
