Kimono & Sandals- c/o Marshalls
Tank - Target
Shorts - c/o AE

Whenever I wear a kimono, my mind ALWAYS goes to a specific scene in My Big Fat Greek Wedding. If you have seen the movie, you may have an idea what I'm talking about.
"Kimono, kimono, kimono. Ha! Of course! Kimono is come from the Greek word himona, is mean winter. So, what do you wear in the wintertime to stay warm? A robe. You see: robe, kimono. There you go!" 

The local fair was in town for a few more days and I didn't want to pass up on the cotton candy, so we went and I was able to snap a few fun photos while I was there. I also shot an engagement shoot there the very next day! All the bright colors and pretty lights made for such a beautiful and fun backdrop. I had to wear something equally beautiful and fun, so I knew this bright, flowy kinomo was perfect. It was a recent find from Marshalls- I know they still have them in stock, along with about a million other incredible ones. When it's insanely hot here, a kimono is my go-to item to wear because it's so sheer, but still covers some of my skin to keep me cool. Plus, they come in so many lovely prints, it's hard to say no to that!

What has been your go-to item this summer?
