I always say that I buy more dresses than I do tops. It’s mainly because I can never find tops that I absolutely LOVE. I always lean toward rompers and dresses because they’re a complete outfit by themselves–no outfit prep necessary. However, I have a couple of J.Jill’s kimonos and absolutely love wearing them, especially in the summer months. They’re light-weight and easy to wear with denim cutoffs and white denim. I especially like this plaid pattern because it adds a fun mix to my growing Pure Jill kimono collection. While in Jamaica, I wanted to bare as much skin as possible to maximize my sun time, but when I knew I needed a break from the sun I slipped this on over my bathing suit–it makes for the perfect cover-up. Normally, I would wear a white cami under this top, but I recently bought a couple cute bralettes from Aerie that I was eager to try out. I’m loving the added sex appeal that they give this look. To be honest, at first glance on the hanger, it appears to look baggy and boxy, but it falls perfectly on the body, and by adding a lacy cami or bralette you can achieve just enough sex appeal for a night out on the town.
