Happy end of January!

I can’t believe how fast this month has just flown by! My parents are here this week, and yesterday we took a day trip to Clear water Beach so that they could see some beautiful sights and enjoy a little relaxation on the gorgeous white sands before they have to head back to the freezing cold temperature and unsightly snow in Pennsylvania.

Although yesterday wasn’t as warm as we had wished, we were able to walk along the beach, eat at Frenchy’s Rockaway Grill , and see the view of the city from the bar on top of Pierhouse 60. We saw some cute little shops and enjoyed seafood and ice cream as well. It was so relaxing and wonderful to spend time with my parents. I’ve missed them a lot since I’ve moved down south!

Anyways, sporting this colorful kimono from Whimsy Boutique with a pair of jeans and a flowy top was the perfect ensemble for walking around this gorgeous beach town. Kimono jackets may seem tough to style, but with a color-coordinated top or simply a casual tee and jeans– the kimono is able to take “center stage” in your outfit. I try not to let jewelry compete with the kimono, so I decided to  don some cute statement earrings instead of a big necklace.

Here’s some exciting news!
