ROBE = KIMONO

ROBE = KIMONO

Kimono’s are officially in.  Ever since Beyoncé wore this $23,945 Gucci Kimono to the All Star game, like Miranda Priestly from the Devil Wears Prada she changed the style game and declared kimonos and jeans as “in”. If you know anything about marketing and fashion you know that every retailor is now carrying the sought after garment and some for a hefty price.

My parents affectionately call me penny pinching pam because I don’t like to spend money, or at least my money. So investing in a really cute kimono was weighing heavy on my heart and my wallet until a light bulb went off. Ding! Kimonos look like robes. I have robes in my closet. Boom. Kimono crisis averted and I too get to be a part of the kimono and jeans movement.

So wearing all white kept me cool because it is summer after all. Propped myself up in these fringe sandals and carried this really cool perfect circle Nine West bag that I bought years ago. Not only am I on trend, I am also able to inconspicuously cover up problem areas and as you can see I have a lot. My stomach and arms are my not hot areas so this robe is the perfect accessory to hide any unwanted attention to those areas. So what do you think? Are you daring enough to wear your robe out in public?

I’m wearing: LOFT Sunglasses | OLD NAVY Tank | H&M Jeans | LORD AND TAYLOR Robe | DILLARDS Robe | NINE WEST bag | STEVE MADDEN Sandals
