kimonos, gladiators, and 4th of July

My growing boho style and why I love reunions…

Our 4th of July was so lovely and relaxing. We met up with lots of family for a family reunion that we have every 3 years. At the end of the reunion, we took a vote on whether or not to have it again and I am happy to say that we ultimately decided to meet again. We are getting big and there is extended family that has a tough time getting there, but I love catching up with them. I have such fond memories of my 2nd and 3rd cousins and lots of them are from reunions. I believe in them for sure. In fact, I signed up to help plan the next one {my husband was super excited about that…whoops}.

We went “camping” here in California for the reunion, at a place with cabins and plumbing… it was NOT camping, to be sure, but tons of fun. Day one was at the beach near my house, which I think is a fabulous thing to do for reunions, but super busy on the 4th of July weekend… note all of the humans in the back. 😉


Summer beach style | kimono and gladiator sandals and my favorite swim dress ever.

I’m learning that my style is far more hippy and boho than I thought I would be, but living near the water will do that to you I guess.

I really am loving this kimono style and I have already found some fabric to make a few of my own kimonos for the shop cause I just love the look so much- and even more as a cover-up at the beach! Imagine this just a hint shorter though and with less-intense fringe and it would be perfect as just a night-out look with some skinnies and wedges. I’m a fan. There, I said it. Kimonos for the win.

And this suit is from Athleta. I have to say, though I have lost a few pounds, I’m not quite at the “bare-my-upper-thighs” part of life that I thought I’d be at. I got this suit last summer and I think I’ll get another one in a size smaller for this season, but I have loved it and rarely wear anything else cause it has great coverage and still feels sexy.
