Faux Suede & Kimonos

On a beautiful day, when the sky is clear and there is a breeze to break up the heat, I find myself gravitating towards the outdoors. Since this is Houston, spending long periods of time outside is not realistic, but stopping for brunch or hitting up an outdoor shopping center are on the table! Today I decided to mix up textures and warm fall tones for a fun and breezy look!


This dress is so comfortable and offers pockets and short sleeves, perfect for the day, but as it is a bit short for my taste a lightweight kimono was the perfect edition to complete the look! This one in particular is a rich burgundy shade comprised of a thin lace with a generous fringe hem. The layer is enough to make me feel less exposed without adding a layer of weight and bulk.


To finish off the look I chose a comfy pair of booties. These in particular are by Muk Luks. I enjoy the knit contrast, buckle details and chunky heel. Again, a subtle touch of texture to tie the look together.
