Autumnal Coloured Outfits With Floral Kimonos and Black Tote Bag

Layering up some floral kimonos with more muted autumn-coloured outfits, black New Balance sneakers and my frequent go-to black bag, the Rebecca Minkoff unlined tote.


What I wore:

JacketWoven Heart gold floral kimono
Necklace: terrazzo and wood rose gold bead necklace
TeeAtmos & Here Avery marle tee in navy
Jeans: Jeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
ShoesNew Balance Coast women's running shoe in black 
Bracelets: the usual
BagRebecca Minkoff medium unlined tote in black with shellac studded dome hardware


Why I wore it:

This was a strange kind of day! It was quite overcast but still bright enough to make me squint without my sunnies on! It was really windy too so I wasn't entirely sure that this kimono would be enough to keep me warm on top of my jeans and tee outfit. While it didn't warm up as much as I hoped, I thankfully didn't freeze on the playground - even with the breeze! I was glad of that, as I really wanted to wear this kimono and tee together - I thought the navy in the tee matched the navy in the floral print nicely!

While there's no olive in the kimono, these jeans are a great neutral that go with a lot, and were super comfortable for a morning at the playground with the kids. We went to one that was a little further away, but a firm favourite, so the New Balance sneakers were essential to support my knee on the longer than usual drive.


Last worn: brown floral kimono, navy tee, terrazzo necklace, olive jeans, New Balance sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff unlined tote bag.

BagRebecca Minkoff medium unlined tote in black with shellac studded dome hardware


Why I wore it:

I'm still not sure this outfit entirely worked! I liked the burgundy tee with the black printed shorts, and since I was loving denim skirts over summer, these cute printed shorts have been a bit neglected and were definitely overdue a wear. It was a lot cooler than I expected that morning though. I decided to add this long duster to layer up a little as we had another morning at the playground, with a couple of errands and a library trip on the way. Thankfully it warmed up a lot and was nice and sunny when we got to the playground.

I thought the small white print on these shorts was subtle enough that it didn't clash badly with the floral print on the duster, but looking at the photos the print seems a lot bolder than it did in the mirror that morning! I'm still pleased I tried something a little different with this duster and a bit of print mixing, even if I wouldn't repeat this again.


Last worn: tropical floral duster, burgundy tee, beaded necklace, printed black shorts, New Balance sneakers (above), Rebecca Minkoff unlined tote bag (above).

How You Can Wear It:
Your floral kimonos can still work in autumn! They layer nicely with dark colours like burgundy and black and navy and olive, as I've worn in these two outfits.

  2. I think the print mixing on the second outfit worked out really well, Mica! Bold enough to stand out but not clash, you know? And I love that kimono in the first outfit. I'm thinking of buying a new one for the summer. You can never have enough kimonos, I say:)
    PS Love the NB sneakers too:)

  10. I actually like the second outfit better, Mica! The pattern-mixing is "next level" and really works well. The olive pants throw me off in the first outfit - the top/kimono are so good together, but then this extra colour that doesn't go with anything else? I think an orange, blue or aqua bottom would be more harmonious - but that's just me!

    Our forecast has FINALLY starting showing some sunshine. Wish me luck on our Mom-Day Adventure today!

    1. I hope you enjoyed the sunshine! And yes, maybe a different colour of pants would have worked better - but I'm glad I gave some new things a try :)

  14. I love the colors in that first look, they all look so pretty together! I think it's good to take risks and experiment with clothes, even if it means you don't always love how it turns out--you never know when you'll end up loving a new combination though!

    1. So true! it's only clothes in the end - no harm in trying something different, as you don't have to wear it again if you don't love it!
