I have recently added a new piece to my wardrobe
that I can foresee will be with me for years and years.
It is a crepe silk kimono from the thirties.
It is a piece
that I have been searching years for …
One with a cream base
one in my size!
When I spotted this in a vintage market
in Old Town Orange
I was absolutely smitten
especially when my husband
bought it for me as
an anniversary present!
Increasing my love for the kimono
as it will always be a reminder of our time together.
I decided to style it casually
for it's first time out.
I paired it with wide legged linen pants
a Rachel Zoe ribbon weave sweater
Tamera Beardsley Design accessories
finished it off with a turban.
I was ever so happy with the outcome
a perfectly easy look
with an art as clothing kimono!
I wanted an easy look this weekend
because there was much
exciting energy here this weekend
Jeff and I knew something big was going to be happening!
This happened Saturday afternoon!
My daughter is officially engaged to her own
Elliot was able to completely surprise my girl
with the sweetest proposal ever!
After asking for her hand
in the best was possible the day before
he had arranged for the two of them
to go to the park
to help out a friend who needed some models
for her couples photography portfolio.
After taking pictures for quite a while
they were instructed to walk up a hill for more pictures.
There a perfect picnic was set
the big question was asked!
This momma's heart is so happy
that her girl
has found her one true love.
a phenomenal man he is!
So our family will be expanding
in a most beautiful way!
Elliot welcome to the family!
We couldn't be prouder for you to join us!
let the planning begin!
As always my friends
I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
