Hello friends and happy Friday!
It’s no secret I love a good kimono, remember this post where I shared several from my collection? I am pleased to announce I have added a new, shorter kimono. If you aren’t really sure you could wear a kimono this one will change your mind. Since it’s shorter and more similar to a cardigan it may be well within your comfort zone. And for those of you who fear you’ll look like Mrs. Roper (Jack, Chrissy, and Janet’s neighbor on Three’s Company) this short length will send your fears packing! I am also loving the colors in this beauty. Throw it on over a tank or camisole and it practically styles itself!
Take a look for yourself. I am wearing my slim utility pants along with an old blue peplum tank, my go to comfy wedges , my squash blossom necklace (similar) and my new kimono.
When the temperature is 9 million degrees a kimono is an easy layering piece to add a little panache to an outfit. Wear a kimono in place of a jacket or blazer to stay cool and update an ensemble. You probably own a few pieces you wear with a jacket; why not try a kimono next time?
The length on this one is perfect! I can wear it with pants as I have here, jeans, skirts, and even shorts. The sleeves are sweet as well with that little bit of ruffle. This kimono is from Target and it’s their Know Rose brand.
Here’s the outfit minus the kimono. I like it this way too. My pants are the perfect neutral and so comfortable. I love the higher rise, no more muffin top!
My peplum tank is from Anthropologie and it’s a few years old. This one is similar and on sale!
I hope you like my new short kimono as much as I do! Have you jumped on the kimono wagon yet? I hope my post inspires you to try one if you haven’t already. You’ll love the result I’m sure! Thanks so much for stopping by, have a wonderful weekend and I’ll see you back here on Monday!
