I've had a little love affair with kimonos for some time now and I don't think it's just because I'm part Japanese. Today I'm sharing why everyone should have one in their wardrobe and why they're the very perfect summer accessory!
A good kimono is one of my very favorite accessories. It can bring an entire outfit to life, it flatters any body type and if you pick one like this floral striped kimono it keeps you nice and cool in the summer heat!
I wore kimonos quite a bit that first year after having Lyla when I was trying to shed extra baby weight, because it kind of helps cover your love handle area (just being real here!).
I also absolutely LOVE a kimono over a swimsuit as an easy pool or beach cover up!
Throw on some heels or a cute summer wedge (these are under $50!!) and you have a nice dressed up outfit for a date night or girls night out.
Sidenote on these amazing jeans: one of the cute girls at Nordstrom told that these jeans were her FAVORITE of all time, and I walked out with what was to become my newest denim obsession. I seriously want to wear these jeans every day they are SO COMFY. The high rise is perfect, and they're so soft you'll wonder if you're wearing leggings or jeans. They have a lot of stretch so if you're in between sizes at all, go down 1 size!
Here's a roundup of some of my FAVORITE kimonos on the internet right now, starting at $15!
