Transition Your Wardrobe to Fall With Pretty Kimono

This Kimono another gorgeous piece that I scooped up at H&M recently. I fell in love with the color and the beautiful pattern on the back, and I had to have it! I think it is a nice alternative to jackets and cardigans…wouldn’t you agree?

And these jeans…man oh man, do I love these jeans. They are regularly $19.99, but they’re on sale for $10 online, so I’m scooping up two more pairs. I love them that much! They fit sooooo gooooood. I have this issue with skinny jeans…my calves are huge, and my ankles are skinny, so I usually have to go up a size to get the damn pants over my calves, but then they aren’t nice and snug around the ankles. Usually I look for skinny jeans with zippers to combat this problem, but sometimes a girl doesn’t want zippers, damn it! Lol. Well, these jeans are perfect! They are SUPER stretchy, but not in a saggy booty kinda way. They hug everything just right, and stay put…just like a good pair jeans should. So yep, definitely buying more! (By the way, I was super excited about the jeans, and I told Fab about my plan to stock up…his response was “is that why you have 10 pairs of the same shoes? GRR. #SideEye. Lol.)

So, as you can see, Arianna and I escaped the rain for an indoor shoot…once again, I am SO thankful for this girl and all her skillz! Lol. Because that rain wasn’t gonna get me twice…nope! I wasn’t even gonna try it…

I love taking pictures outside, but I have to admit taking pictures indoors can be fun because 1) there’s nobody there but me and Arianna and 2) I have to compensate for the lack of background scenery….so y’all are getting me in all my goofy faced splendor. I told Arianna we have to do a bloopers post one day…I’m tell you guys, I make the CRAZIEST faces and when I run out of poses, I break out into the robot…yes, the robot…every. single. time.

    • Hey Iesha!! H&M\’s jeans run about a size small. I\’m normally a 6 or 8 depending on the stretch factor, and at H&M I am an 8 or 10. In these jeans, I\’m an 8. They\’re SUPER stretchy!

    Wow! Saw this kimono at H&M, thought i didn't like it but you rocked it so chic and smart, now i love it! Indeed, the pattern on the back is so beautiful, sort of reminds me of a Chinese-European-Japanese inspiration, which exactly what makes it for me both beautiful and unique. **Let these traditional Japanese clothing complete your classy closet this kimono season.
