The summer can be at times deceiving. Although in Vancouver with current record breaking temperatures the nights have been fairly warm--indoors that is. So this kimono jacket works so nicely as a light throw on for a day out that goes into the evening. Everyone knows, the uncomfortableness you feel when you are cold is unnerving...even though I would rather be super cold than super hot...or would I? I dont know, I digress! Anyways, it can all be confusing is my point and so this kimono jacket helps avoid all the confusion...at least for me!
