Gracey Wears: Business Kimono

The other day, I wore this:

Gracey wears a pink Foxcroft button-down, vintage kimono, ponte skinnies & a studded belt ashion for Giants outfit featuring a pink Foxcroft button-down, vintage kimono, ponte skinnies, a studded belt and Born Crown riding boots

Here’s how it happened:

Me: Ooh, that pink button-down looks cute hanging next to that kimono.  I wonder if I can wear them together?

Myself: To work?  Like a Business Kimono?  That’s not a thing.

Me: But, it could be a thing, right?  I could make it a thing.  I shall make it a thing!

Myself: I like your enthusiasm, Kid.  Go for it.

So I did:

ashion for Giants outfit featuring a pink Foxcroft button-down, vintage kimono, ponte skinnies, a studded belt and Born Crown riding boots

And that, Reader Friends, is the true story of how I came to pair a button-down top with a kimono.  Turns out that Business Kimono is totally a thing.  At least in my closet.

xoxo,

Gracey

    I’m making my first comment on this site to say – I love this look on you! And I love the creativity. Such a good reminder for all of us to see the possibilities of shape and colour, and not just say “kimono for work? no”. :)

    This is a great combination – the structured buttondown and flowy kimono just work so well together! :)
