Happy 4th of July! I hope those of you celebrating have something fun planned and I hope the weather is good for your celebrations! This is the second time in my life I'll be celebrating in Ireland where Sweet Home Alabama typically gets played at a pub in acknowledgement. Haha! Have fun and stay safe!

I've been wanting a kimono for at least a year now, but although I kept seeing cute ones on other bloggers, could never find one with a good print and colors to purchase myself. They make such nice layers, especially in summer and can add so much color and interest to outfits. They are especially nice as part of a maternity wardrobe to help mix up what would otherwise be a very plain outfit. I finally found the perfect one at an amazing price on Sammydress. Unfortunately it's sold out, but there are many other cute ones available here. I felt so put together in this outfit and even had a couple strangers compliment me! And it really was just a white tank top, jeans, and a kimono! It's always fascinating to me how much one piece can complete an outfit!

  10. Too cute! I can't believe this is your first kimono. You know, the last time I wore a kimono is was just with a white tee shirt and jeans and I got a lot of compliments on it too! Ireland? Wow! That's amazing!

  11. That's a beautiful kimono, I can see why it got a lot of compliments - kimonos are the best finishing pieces for an outfit, I'm sad I can't wear mine while it's winter, it's too chilly for bare arms!

    Also how full and beautiful your hair looks here - you're definitely getting that lovely pregnancy hair!

    Hope you are having a lovely start to the week and you have a fun time celebrating 4th July in Ireland!

  12. Laura, I am loving this kimono! I have a bit of a kimono addiction and haven't really seen a kimono that I don't love. My problem is trying to not buy all of them! I just added a whole bunch of new ones to my Shelbee's Shoppe inventory. You should stop my Facebook page and check out the cute ones I have in stock! You are looking quite fabulous, my friend!

  19. Such a great garment, kimonos are so versatile. They can be worn as a swimsuit cover, with shorts, jeans, black trousers... I think this one in particular is lovely and you look so pretty in it.

  20. I only own one kimono myself but I need one or two that wow me. You can do so much with them and while pregnant too they are perfect, as well for when you will nurse. You look great!

    Enjoy Ireland and Happy 4th!

  34. I love everything about this kimono, the color and how it is light weight. I also love it paired with the white cami (and your cute preggo belly!) and that necklace. We were in Mexico for the 4th and it was definitely a different experience! :)
