Being a petite girl finding breezy, flowy, boho pieces is always a challenge because they seem to swallow me.  But I was thrilled when I found this one at Nordstrom Rack on clearance!  Love the color & print, perfect for Spring. I’m especially in love with the menswear-inspired sleeves. Rolling the sleeves up adds a subtle edge to the look!

I wanted to go for a moody Spring/Summer look. So I styled the kimono with these olive/military green Paperbag waist shorts from Forever 21 instead of the standard denim shorts. Also, yes ‘Paperbag waist’ is a thing and a BIG trend too this Spring & Summer. Personally, I love it because most paperbag wais bottoms are high waisted. And you know your petite girl loves a good high waisted bottom!  I love the belt on them. The only thing I wasn’t a fan of was the linen fabric. It makes them super wrinkly. But I guess that’s the worn-in vibe of linen 🤷

Keeping the moody theme going, I paired the shorts with a black camisole instead of a t-shirt. In hindsight, I think I should have gone with a bodysuit. The cami kept rising up, giving me a super unflattering silhouette. Well, I guess next time? You guys learn from my mistake.

For accessories, I went with my favorite Ugg Wedge Sandals. I’ve been wearing them everywhere as you can see here & here. I got the Straw beach bag from Amazon and I love it. Honestly, I’m so tired of seeing the Gaia Bamboo Bag everywhere. So I  was intentionally looking for an alternative. And I was so happy to find this affordable alternative. Plus, this bag has a drawstring closure which keeps all my belongings safe.

So this weekend or over the long weekend if you are spending your day in Napa wine tasting or visiting a new city or going to the beach or taking a road trip somewhere or just staying in, you can wear this outfit! It’s a super versatile look. Great for day or night.

I tried a new format for this blog post, deep diving into my styling thought process. Do you guys like going me going in-depth with a longer post or do you prefer a shorter version? Let me know in the comments.

Thanks for reading!
