I don't know about you but I feel like kimonos are meant for spring and summer. I think it's because they're usually floral patterned and made of chiffon--both of which are worn mostly during the warm seasons. It made me sad that the kimono trend is coming to an end along with summer, so when I saw this feather kimono that had major fall accents, I knew I had to get it! Rather than watching this stylish trend come to an end, I wanted it to stay aliiiiive!

This kimono from Billie+Betty has the cutest pattern ever! I love the pops of dark blue and orange mixed in with the feather print, which is a nice break from the bright floral prints we usually see on kimonos! I can't wait to wear this ensemble more throughout the season, all day, errrdayy (just kidding, but I will be wearing this outfit a lot)

What are some trends from Summer that you want to carry over to the Fall?

The blog got a spontaneous makeover. The changes aren't too dramatic--I just wanted to clean some things up and change my header since it was very spring/summer-esque.

Hope you guys like it!

Samson hopes you all have a great Wednesday!
