Fit Review: Wanderlust Kimono

As I promised you on Thursday, my pre Wanderlust upload review of the Casbah Kimono. The full Wanderlust items are slated to upload on Tuesday, although the US got a pre upload this morning of the High Times Pants. 

This is the size M on me and I typically take a size 10 in jackets and cool racerback tanks. The M is perfect, roomy and relaxed fitting. The only indication that this is a smaller size on me is that the pockets are set back a bit on my hips vs. being positioned on the front of my hips. I can wear the kimono fully closed in the front and overlapping so it's not short on material there at all. I think this Kimono looks best either dressed up with skinny or straight legged jeans, or worn as a pool coverup. For some reason I don't love it with casual luon bottoms. If you are a size 8 or 10 you can easily pull off the size small, or medium or you could try the L but ideally you would get the M. If you are sizes 2, 4, 6 you would probably want to stick with XS and S. 

The jacket is reversible to solid Denim Blue but I really prefer the print side out. I think the other print, the Winged Mosaic Naval Blue reverses to solid Naval Blue which would be nice as well. No button or snap closures on this. 

This print doesn't photograph nearly as beautifully as it looks in person. The Painted Feathers print is very nuanced in person and full of texture and tone that just doesn't get captured in any of the pictures I've seen. I really love the pops of brown in the print.

  1. Thank you! This helps a lot. Hopefully I get to snag a medium in the upload!

  2. Thanks for the great review I wish it had long sleeves.

  3. Are those your rag and bone booties? Love!

    1. Thanks! Yah they are the Rag and Bone Margot Booties I got at the Nordstrom Sale. This is my second time wearing them and they are incredibly comfortable. I'm not a heel wearer and I wore these all day yesterday.
