The feeling of summer managed to stick around here in Tofino for most of September, which I am definitely not complaining about. I was able to transition my summer pieces nicely into fall and still get a few wears out of them before it actually started getting really cold (like today.) I wore this outfit for a nice sunny walk through Tofino before heading to Jamie's Rainforest Inn for some drinks and appetizers one night with Dave and my friend Elyse. It was the perfect transitional outfit for this kimono, which managed to keep the cold away while still remaining summery when paired with jeans, a bodysuit and sandals. I love that the kimono trend has stuck around for numerous seasons now. It is such a versatile piece and great alternative to a denim jacket or blazer. I often dress it up with trousers and a blouse for work or keep it more casual for a weekend look like I did here. I have officially packed it away until our trip to Thailand but in the meantime I have pulled out my velvet kimono that I can't wait to wear through winter, post to come soon!
