Kimono wear

If you are a regular visitor, you probably know that I have multiples of everything. I am a collector.
But, I will not be getting into that subject, at least not today. 
So, I have several kimono, kimono-esque garments in the closet that I literally never wear and when I see fellow blogger Mica wear hers so well I tell myself that I should wear mine.  
Today I I finally did and now that I look at it, or at least this particular one, I think the reason it does not get much wear might be the odd length. Also, the fact that I don't really know what to do with the ends: let them hang ? tie them like I did ?  How to you wear yours ? Feel free to leave a link ;)

Summery kimonos:

Mica seems to wear hers so easily, doesn't she? I don't have a kimono like this. I think I would wear it open, and with other long pieces, a long flapper necklace, that vibe.

Your kimono is beautiful, and thanks for the shout-out! :)

I don't think I've ever tied up my kimonos like this, I'll have to give it a go next time I wear one! :)

Sometimes I look at the photos and think that a kimono might hit at an odd point or not really work with what I'm wearing. But I like them so much I just go ahead and keep on wearing them anyway, haha! I wear a lot of tanks and denim shorts on hot days, without them I think my outfits would be too plain. I see them like summer scarves, haha! Too hot for scarves in summer but not too hot for a lightweight kimono.
