Faux Kimono Using a Scarf

When Nancy at Nancy's Fashion Style and Shelbee at Shelbee on the Edge decided to host a Good Buy/Goodbye kimono event, I wanted to join, but didn't have a kimono. 
Whatever to do?  Fortunately, I saw Jodie's (A Touch of Style) post on Styling Summer Clothing.  On it, Charlotte was featured with a scarf used as a kimono.  Perfect!  Scarves, I have.

The Details
This scarf was found on eBay this spring.  It was chosen because of the colors, however, in the photos the blush appeared ivory, at least it is a happy accident and a Good-Buy.  The colors are so lovely!  If you would like to see how you can copy the look, check out this video:  Turning a Scarf into a Kimono Vest.  I decided the DIY Distressed Bermuda Shorts would be a great addition and I really liked the contrast between the brown top and lighter color scarf/vest.  

Since I noticed that I had a farmer's tan from my recent Weekend in Detroit, I added a pink t-shirt for Photo Op No. 2.  

The Takeaway
Where there's a will, there's a YouTube video!  Ha ha!  Scarves are so versatile--take a look at what you have if you need an outfit accent of some sort.  Use other bloggers and YouTubers for inspiration.

  1. What a beautiful scarf! The colors are neutral but so full of punch as well. Love it!!

  2. Holy cow, how clever! I swear YouTube has the answer to everything! Ok Kim I don't notice a farmer's tan but I sure like it with the pink tee and that pretty necklace, those soft colors are so nice with your kimono-scarf, maybe we should call it a scarmono? That could be a thing! You look great my friend!

    1. You are the sweetest blogger. I'm glad you like the pink tee. The blush color has been a winner this season. Ha ha--scarmono! :)

  3. Hey...how cute you were inspired by my mom, Kim!! Isn't that such a great trick?? My mom has used it twice recently, and it's nice to know that others love it too!!

    1. I'm so glad you saw my post, Jodie. I like to give credit where it's due ;). It's an easy way to add the kimono look w/o having to buy anything new.

  4. Orange it great to be inspired by other bloggers! What a creativity, I love it. Thanks for mentioning is, I appreciate that very much!

  7. Well, Kim, I stole this natty idea and posted it, only to find out that you're having lunch with my mate Kellyann next week! Small world eh? Please visit my blog to see my kimono efforts and my conversation with our mutual friend. Wishing you a lovely lunch next week, and please DO raise a glass over the ocean towards Guernsey ... and maybe post that pic on IG? Happy weekend hugs, x.
