I'm working on expanding my style comfort zone, as you have seen with this crazy red dress, head-to-toe leopard print, and now a printed fringe kimono! I love my wrap dresses and florals and always will, but with fall quickly approaching, it's a great time to try new pieces and get style inspiration (hello September issues!)

I loved the hi-low hem of the kimono, and the fringe, which shimmied with every step and slight wave of wind. It's an extra element of movement to the piece. I originally was going to wear boyfriend denim, a tee, and the kimono but I'm still working my way towards comfort in denim and it was hot as balls outside. I thought a black tank dress (like this one) would be good, but the only ones I have is a maxi, or has a sweetheart neckline which I thought didn't look quite right. Found the pencil skirt in the depths of my closet and just added the basic tee. It works!
