Kimono Sleeve Top

This week is my style challenge to wear the clothes I haven't worn in ages, or ever.

Day Five: Kimono Sleeve Top
Last worn: If memory serves, my 21st birthday (and I'm 23 now)


I had planned my outfit for this top with another item from my not worn pile, a teal knit skirt, along with a brown top and heels and tights and such, but when I woke up this morning I was feeling miserably sick and didn't want to put on my skirt, tights and heels. Instead I grabbed my super stretchy jeans and comfortable leopard flats - the closest I could get to pajamas and slippers and still wear to work.


I will have to keep my intended outfit in mind for the future, I was really quite liking it.

Only two days left of my Style Challenge and still so many pieces to wear. I know I can't wear them all in one week, but hopefully this will alter my frame of mind to give such ignored pieces a second glance in the future.

I love the sheer sleeves! Sometimes it is nice to wear something simple with one special piece!

I love your planned outfit! I'm wearing skinny jeans and comfy boots at work today, though, so I totally understand. :)
