Today’s post is a one hit wonder: just one styling idea for a Valentine’s Day dinner date. When I was blogging full time, I never wrote a Galentine/Valentine post. Now, that I’ve come back part-time, why not? Michael and I are meeting up with friends on Valentine’s Day this year and I’ve decided what to wear.
The main focal point is my new En Crème kimono from my good friend Debby’s shop What To Wear, which is on the town square in Butler, Missouri (about 50 miles south of Kansas City).
Personalizing with Accessories
As I mentioned earlier, I found the Kimono at What To Wear. Debby doesn’t have any at the boutique at this very moment but she is expecting some for Spring. If you live in our area, keep watch (and I’ll let you know). Meanwhile, I went to Amazon and found a few that I like.
Are you up for some DIY? I always thought that this type of garment would be a great beginner’s sewing project; it is just rectangles. Googling “how to make kimonos” turns up many tutorials. I like this one for its clear illustrations and easy to follow instructions: Easy Sewing Kimono Tutorial by Lolly Jane.
That’s it for today. See you Valentine’s Day on Instagram where I post my day to day outfits and other things going on.
Thank you so much for reading. I hope you have a sweet Galentine’s/Valentine’s Day. And may you stay creative.
Until next time, Style on!
