Ringing in Summer with Floral + Bright Colors

WHAT I'M WEARING :: KIMONO // c/o Oakleigh Rose ::  T-SHIRT // Kohl's ::  EARRINGS // Molly Suzanne :: SKIRT // Groopdealz :: SHOES // Apricot Lane

I'd typically describe my style as classy, simple, and chic. I like bright colors, but neutrals are within the realms of my comfort zone. This summer, I've made it my goal to step out of that comfort zone. Now that what is officially my summer is HERE, I've been dying to add more flowy, bright colored pieces to my neutral wardrobe. In enters this kimono from Oakleigh Rose!

The best part about this little number is that it is so incredibly versatile. I've worn it as a swimsuit cover up, I've dressed it up, and I've dressed it down. The lightweight fabric couldn't be more perfect for a Minnesota summer, but earlier this spring, I was able to wear it with layered t-shirts underneath to keep me warmer (as pictured) and still look totally spring-ish! To top it off, it matches my favorite NYC lipstick to a T! 

I absolutely adore this piece and know I'll be rocking it all summer long - on the boat, at the campground, and every place in between. I've already picked out the next three items on my wishlist from their website!

What pieces are on your summer wishlist?
