My favorite way to wear this kimono is thrown over a simple black dress. I also love adding my favorite oversized felt hat to give it a boho, hippie chic vibe.

We did this fun little shoot in the back-alleys of North Beach on a beautiful, sunny Sunday afternoon. It was my first time shoot with Miss Brittany of Work It Berk and it was such a fun experience.
