This outfit had to span two events: a blogger meet-up and a Japanese festival
If you need any proof that the kimono is this summer’s style staple, here it is. I wore this outfit to a blogger meet-up in the morning and an Obon festival in the evening. (Obon is the Japanese Buddhist custom of honoring the dead.) I’ll admit that the kimono stayed mostly stuffed in my bag that evening because it was 100+ degrees at the festival. But if I had wanted to participate in the Bon Odori (dancing) I could have donned it and fit right in.
