On a sweltering hot day ( which is everyday in FL ) this seems to be the best option when it comes to dressing. A loose maxi dress, and a fun kimono. Okay, maybe the kimono isn't necessary... actually, yes it is. 

I am very surprised by how many times I have actually worn this kimono. When I bought it, I didn't realize how functional it would become. If I'm going somewhere I know it may get a little chilly, I just throw this in my tote. It's the perfect amount of coverage for this Florida weather. And it's cute. That's the most important thing. 

Happy TBT Y'all!
