Life's a Beach

In a few days I will FINALLY have my toes in the sand- the moment I've been waiting for all summer. I technically bought this top to be used as a swimsuit cover-up at the beach, that's how Forever 21 categorized it even, but I've worn it several times as a cardigan of sorts. It's easily my favorite piece in my wardrobe right now because it can so easily be dressed up or down depending on where I'm going.

The bad news is... I know some of you might really love this kimono top, but it's no longer available at Forever 21. There are some different patterns, but this one has disappeared. Don't be mad at me, PLEASE! I strongly recommend you picking up this piece if you like the available pattern! It's under $16, and I am wearing it two or three times a week. On this particular afternoon, we headed over to a friend's house for dinner. I paired my trusty Old Navy cut-offs with some wedge sandals (which are now over 3 years old and probably nearing retirement) to dress it up a little bit. The fabric is super light and gauzy, and anytime I wear it out, I get lots of compliments.

Kimono Top- Forever 21+ (Current Style Available)
TankTop- Target (similar here)
Denim Cut-offs- Old Navy (Buy Here)
Shoes- Kohl's (similar here)

Like I said, this particular style is sold out as of right now, but I've included below a few of my favorites in similar colors. I will be packing tomorrow, so no post, but I hope you all have a great weekend! I will check in from the beach on Instagram, but we purposely chose a condo with no wi-fi to disconnect and unplug. Sean's addiction to the iPad is going to be most affected, and he's already grumbling about me wasting a week of his summer vacation on the "boring beach!" Wish me luck!

LMAO..I live in the Target tank tops...seriously . I layer them unde rbusiness suits or seperates ( I work for a medium size law firm as senior receptionist..) 80 % of the year here in Houston. My husband is used to me buying multi's of basic colors and new colors I " just have to have. Dress them up or dress them down, they keep comfy in the mix...and not that it matters but I am 59 and a size 16..I can still rock the you know what out of them.

I'm such a heavy user of Target's long & lean tanks....I wear them with almost anything all-season! And kimonos are so fun & I've used mine all Summer long even as a beach coverup....and yours is definitely so pretty! BTW...I'm already following you at Twitter and hoping to see you follow me too so we could keep in touch!!
