Fall Floral Kimono

Check out this absolutely gorgeous kimono I found at Target a few weeks ago!! The colors and pattern are spot-on for Fall 2016, aren’t they? Here are a few ways I’ve worn it so far.

With Jeans, White Tee, Ankle Boots, & a Bolo Tie

I think I like the jeans look a little better, but the leggings look was cute and very comfy. I taught in the top one (with jeans), but I haven’t worn the leggings-and-kimono outfit to school. Not sure I would unless I could find a tee that went down a little farther in the front. In my book, modesty is essential for teaches (I sure wish it were students as well….); we are role models whether we like it or not, and I feel like a lot of high school girls (and guys) cross the line between stylish and inappropriate far too often. I know, I know, Erik Erikson, they’re in the developmental stage where they’re establishing their identities and figuring out their likes and dislikes, rebelling, yada, yada, yada. But I don’t have to applaud it. Or reinforce it by wearing leggings as pants to teach. Nope, not happening.
