My New Happy: The Spring Kimono

The Spring Kimono

Happy Wednesday, friends!  Welcome to another edition of  TBB Style.    We hope you'll join us and link up your fashion posts below, and check back to see if you are featured!  

Today I'm at The Blended Blog talking about spring sweaters - shocking, I know.  Hop over to see my favorites this time of year.

A few years ago I bought a kimono...and didn't wear it even once.  I never could figure out how to style it, and I think it was too short.  So during my early spring closet purge, it got donated.  BUT then I started seeing all these cute kimono looks, and decided I needed one again.  Trust me, I even annoy myself sometimes with the indecision.  

Apparently the clothing goddesses agreed with my assessment, and this adorable kimono appeared in my next Stitch Fix box.



I love the print and the length, and as soon as the weather permits, I can't wait to wear it with shorts, or over a sleeveless swing dress.

My Seattle friends Julie and Krista of Last Seen Wearing recently wrote a post about 5 Ways To Style A Kimono.  This look is one of my favorites!



What are your thoughts on kimonos?  Yay or nay?

  4. I love the kimonos---they are the perfect layering in the summer months!! I had to laugh, because I did give one away last year---it was too long on me and overpowering. So maybe that was the case with yours---we should have switched!!

  5. Although I love the "idea" of kimonos I do find them challenging to wear. I usually like to style my kimono with shorts (like you've done here) but normally if it is warm enough for shorts then I don't want to wear a kimono on top because it's too hot. I find that they aren't warm enough for cool weather but then are too hot for warm weather.

  8. My sisters both rock kimonos. I never could because they look terrible on me and it's unfair. They're pretty cool!
