Remember this past winter when I blogged about being so obsessed with my new kimono? My $22.80 Forever 21 purchase in January was probably my best clothing purchase so far in 2014. Not only has my kimono journeyed all over St. Louis with me (like when I wore it for Best Friends Style in the Delmar Loop) but it has also accompanied me over the past several months on vacations to Chicago, Florida, Guatemala and this past weekend in Kansas City. I love that whether you wear kimonos with thick long sleeves and jeans or shorts and a tank top, they can turn your outfit into a statement in any weather…Clearly, I really believe in the power of buying powerhouse items for your closet that you can wear year~round in a variety of ways. This weekend, I packed my kimono for our getaway weekend to Kansas City and I wore it as we explored Country Club Plaza and the Nelson Atkins Art Museum. I love this outfit because it keeps you really cool in toasty weather as well as makes a fun statement! Look below for my favorite kimonos that are out right now!
