It has been so hot lately! The kind of hot where the best you can hope for when you’re outside is the slightest hint of a breeze. When it’s this hot, there’s something about dressing like you’re actually in the tropics walking on a sunny beach or boardwalk — rather than in Illinois sweating like a pig.
This tropical palm kimono from Stay Fierce Boutique absolutely fits the bill for my vicarious vacation. Need one? If you shop at Stay Fierce and use promo code EVERYDAYTEACHERSTYLE at checkout, you can get 15% off of your entire order!

I like both long and short kimonos, but I’m glad this one is on the shorter side. With a pattern this bold, a little is a lot.
I debated on what to wear WITH this kimono. At first I had on this white tank and some bermuda-length distressed denim shorts. That looked good, and I also liked it with some shorter destructed denim cut-offs, but I settled on white shorts to let the print do all of the talking.
Then of course before I headed out I grabbed my summer staples, including this sweet Steve Madden straw fedora which lately I can’t seem to leave home without because (1) I love how it shades my eyes and hair from the sun and (2) it means I don’t have to do my hair! Yay!
Now I would really like to try out this kimono with a black bikini on a gorgeous white sand beach lined with brilliant blue water. However, since I haven’t worn a bikini in years and I have no plans to visit any beaches in the near future (boooooo!), this fun tropical kimono is the closest I’m going to get. And really, I’m okay with that. Mostly. 🙂
