Jeanswest Duster Kimonos With Denim Shorts, Space Dye Tees and Louis Vuitton Neverfull

If you've followed my blog for a while you'd know that I love Jeanswest. It's easily my favourite clothing store, and I always ask for gift cards from there at Christmas. So when they come out with a kimono, a much loved staple of my wardrobe, I'm very likely to get it.

They've really stepped up their game recently with a whole heap of kimonos and so I spent the last of my Christmas gift cards getting these two amazing bright kimonos from Jeanswest, perfect for summer! They were both 40% off in the sales too πŸ˜‰

Necklace: navy and silver circle pendant tassel necklace
Tee: thrifted Kmart space dye cream and black longline top
ShortsJeanswest Sara distressed hot short
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

This kimono was a must have, as soon as I saw it I knew I'd use up the last of my Christmas gift cards to get it. So perfect! It's called a poncho on the Jeanswest site but I'm just going to call it a kimono. It's so light and floaty, perfect for our hot summer days in Brisbane and it's the most cheerful bright shade of yellow!

Wore it out for the first time for a picnic by the beach with some family over visiting from WA. The sunny morning turned into a showery day when we got there so we huddled together eating hot chips to stay warm until the sun and the humidity returned. I'd picked shorts to wear as I didn't want to overheat in jeans - regretted that choice with the wind and rain, but was happy for the rest of the day when the sun came out and jeans would have been too warm.

With the plain shorts and space dye tee the yellow kimono was a nice bright pop of colour, and my Louis Vuitton neverfull is a frequently worn bag to the beach, or to a picnic, or a picnic by the beach in this case!

Why I wore it:

The last photo in front of the Jacaranda trees for the season! I had been trying to get as many pics with them as I could and when I took this photo mid-November there were already more green leaves on the trees than purple flowers. It has been fun trying to stop at the best ones we passed to get pics - although there were many more I wish I could have taken pics with. Next year!

I went back to this street with my tripod this time as I knew to get a shot of the big purple trees behind me I'd need the camera to stand on the road. The boys patiently waited for me on the pavement as I snapped away, before we headed to a coffee date with a friend and then a play in the playground. Being a hot day I'd wanted to have a bit of a splash in the bay to cool down, but a warning about the illness causing algae in the water kept us off the beach sadly!

It was too hot for anything other than shorts and a tee, but I thought that the rose gold sandals and green duster kimono dressed up the outfit nicely for meeting my friend. This kimono was another must have as soon as I saw it, and I picked it up for 40% off in the Jeanswest sale too, earlier this year. I can never resist a good sale!

Duster Kimonos Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

Shorts and a tee is a staple in the summer heat and humidity, and a great outfit for running around with the kids. You can add some extra colour to your outfit, or dress it up a little with a bright duster kimono like these two here.

  18. It was obvious that this yellow floral kimono had to be yours, it definitely has your name on it. And I'd call it a kimono too, a poncho is something quite different in my book. The yellow is just perfect for summer, although I'm loving the second duster/kimono too! Hope you're enjoying a wonderful weekend, Mica! xxx

  19. These kimonos are great and fairly light so they do well in hotter weather. And oh too bad about the rain. This reminds me of when my friends and I were going to have a picnic in the park by the sea on a early summer day but of course it poured and we had to have in indoor picnic...needless to say it was in Seattle lol.

  25. You are Queen of the Kimono, Mica! I've always admired your collection and these are just beautiful. I'm really bad for just throwing a neutral cardigan over my clothes but I'd love some more colorful options like your kimonos!

  29. Dear Mica, the Kimono you boughts are really great! And I know for sure you love this shop - here in Germany I think we don't have this shop, what seems to be a pity. It is wonderful your boys waited so patiently during you took the pictures and I love it how you combined your kimonos. Looks cool and effortlessy chic.

  30. I wish i could go to all the stores you talk about, like Jeanswest! I often wish I could shop at all the international stores people post about, haha! (Incidentally, when I go to Chicago, I get a kick out of going to Chicago-specific stores or ones that have different names but part of the same chain as stores around here. :D)
