...Oh, How I Love Thee

Kimono Style Ideas

Kimonos, oh how I love thee. This is another fun Forever 21 find that I picked up during my, ahem, small haul a few weeks ago. I originally planned to wear it with my cut-off denim shorts, and still eventually will do so, but I had a meeting Wednesday evening and a dress was more appropriate for the occasion. That's the beauty of kimonos, they can quickly be added as a topper to most pieces, whether you are going for a laid back weekend look or something a little dressier for an evening out or day at the office.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. To all the moms out there, Happy Mother's Day. Make sure to relax, let your family do the dishes and do not, under any circumstances, lift a finger. Enjoy your well deserved day.

Sorry for the short and sweet, but the Spurs are currently playing game two in the playoffs and I can't concentrate on much more. Plus, I have to hit the hay as soon as we win because I am spending the day with 100+ third graders at the zoo. Yep, another field trip, the last one of the year.

P.S. Make sure to come back on Sunday, because there may or may not be a pretty fantastic Mother's Day giveaway in store. See you then!

You find the best things at F21 - do you mainly shop online or in their stores?

I have been tempted to pick up a kimono but not sure I can wear it without looking like a costume.

And I am in love with those sandals - gorgeous!

Happy Mother's Day Shanna!

I have so been wanting to try a kimono but I am afraid I will look like Mrs. Roper from Three's Company! Are you too young to remember that show? You make it look so fabulous though! There is a floral kimono at Kiki LaRue that I love! I may try it out with some white denim shorts! I really love this look on you!! We are having about 3- people here for Mother's Day so I will be lifting a few fingers all weekend(: It is ok though -we do it every year and it is always fun! Happy Mother's Day to the most stylish mom I know! Susan

I don't have a kimono! You always make me thing about items that I never would have thought of before. Love that!

MorganizewithMe said...

I haven't thought about a kimono before either, such a cool piece to add to your wardrobe. Hope you have fun on the field trip!!!

Heidi said...

Love that top! That probably comes in handy in that Texas heat where it's blazing hot outside, but everyone has got their AC pumped up inside.

Such a cute, summery look! I'm lusting over your sandals! My F21 was renovated into a 2 story one and now it's just totally overwhelming and I haven't been able to find anything there in quite awhile. :( Happy Mother's Day!

Thank you for styling a kimono!! I got one from my sister from Ruche for my bday and I am not doing well with ideas :) I love this though! xoxo

Kellyann Rohr said...

So now I want a kimono! You wear everything better than the F21 website! I swear! I look at things and think no way and then you wear it and it looks amazing! Seriously they need to hire you to model their clothing. I am so loving the kimono on you and never thought I'd ever want one but guess what I'm about to order!

Just Another Shopaholic said...

I have become obsessed with kimonos!!

prettyanddelectable.com said...

I like kimonos but somehow I worry that it will look like a cultural costume on me. :P Those heels are pretty! Hope you had a fun time at the zoo and happy mother's day!

Daily Express said...

Ooh, I have those same heels from F21 and I love them so much! They are surprisingly comfortable and go with pretty much everything. Love your styling of the kimono here. I like the trend a lot but have yet to try it or find the right one.
