Styling My New Kimono and The Laguna Beach Art Walk


I found just the kimono I was searching for
in Little Tokyo.

Red with a lot of white in the design
to tie in with all of my white pants as a base
and
 just enough of blues and turquoise
to be grounded and modernized 
with the addition of  nautical stripes.


The perfect outing for this envisioned mix

The Laguna Art Walk 
of course!


The Art Walk is held the first Thursday of every month
and
 one of the summer highlights for us!

We always begin the evening
at the spot of our very first date …
27 years ago …
The terrace at Hotel Laguna.

Cocktails as the sunsets … at the beach
before an evening of strolling galleries of art
pretty much
my favorite summer evenings 
to be sure!







As always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life

  4. One word = Gorgeous! I'm not really one for one words though...that kimono is exquisite, and styled pure Tamera! My husband and I have been to Laguna Beach only once, but what a memorable day we had. A lovely lunch in a tiny hidden away restaurant that hung over the beach. And I do remember the art stores! Ah, must visit there again!

  8. WOW! That's some kimono. I'm sure it billows fabulously in the slightest breeze, feels like you're living in clouds. I really love this piece, and you wear it with the drama it deserves. I finally got you in Blog Lovin'! Now I won't miss any of your inspiring posts. Your photos are art in themselves.
