How to Look Chic in a Kimono


Kimonos aren’t known for being the most flattering look – maybe a cuter cousin of the moo moo at best – but they sure are comfy. Last week, my entire family and in-laws met in Majorca, Spain for a week of R&R and baby bonding. There’s nothing like a new baby to bring all the siblings together, and it was a nice relief to have a team of burpers, singers and rockers around when Wilhelmina was fussy.

Loungewear often gets overlooked as PJ’s, but occasionally you need the ‘outfit before the outfit’ –  Kinda like the ‘shirt before the shirt‘ concept coined on the Jersey Shore. Sometimes you just need casual loungewear to throw on while you’re sipping coffee, savoring a lazy Saturday, writing emails, or in my case – getting the baby fed and changed – before getting dressed myself. A silk robe just isn’t practical, especially if it’s accessorized with baby spit-up. Here’s a kimono and a few ‘summer styles‘ I’ve been loving before August screeches to a halt and fall arrives…


 <The Scene – Majorca, Spain wearing this ‘Back from Bali‘ kimono set after interviewing the founder in yesterday’s post about her business secrets starting a clothing line in Bali and selling exclusively on Amazon>


<Comfort in Espadrilles  – Espadrilles are a must-have for lounging around or for a tropical getaway. My entire family bought these in Majorca at the market. Can’t beat 7 Euros! Plus, they’re ‘Designed of Spain‘ which I noticed after I removed the ‘Made in China‘ sticker>


<Taste the Sunshine – I feel like a teenie bopper in Miley’s Cyrus’s ‘We Can’t Stop‘ music video every time I whip out EOS lip balm, but I still think they’re cute! The ‘Lemon Drop‘ flavor is my fave. I’m also soaking in the last few weeks of warm temps in Europe by painting my nails (usually at 2 am when the baby is asleep) in shades that scream ‘Summer!‘>


<Totally Tassels! – I have been drawn to handbags and blouses with tassel details lately. I love the tassel tie on this kimono and if you have a tassel look in your closet, submit your photo on next month’s ‘How I Wear My‘ by Adrienne of RichLifeonABudget because that’s the theme for September!>


<Kimonos are MOM-APPROVED – Not only is this matching set comfortable (and the shorts were super comfy and larger than I expected with an elastic waistband), it’s the perfect outfit to lounge around with your baby, wear as PJ’s or as a swimsuit cover-up. The material is super light-weight and soft, especially if you live in a humid area>


<Baby Break – I said ‘Smile Wilhelmina,’ but clearly she could care less about my blog>


<DETAILS by Dale – Kimono (top & bottom set) c/o- Back from Bali (size Sm/Med) / espadrilles – Majorca market / white tank – H&M /nails – random German brand (love this one by Orly in ‘Tennis Ball‘)> —For 20% off on Back from Bali, use code ‘ZOK743AT’ – shop here
