The Perfect Kimono For Fall

Hey there friends! Happy Wednesday or as I like to call it birthday eve. Tomorrow is Kent’s birthday. I always ask what dessert he’d like to have, and one of his favorites is called That’s Incredible Cake. I made it last year and shared it here and he requested it again this year. If you have a chocoholic in your life, this will not disappoint.

I don’t know about you, but it seemed like this summer you couldn’t look sideways without seeing someone somewhere wearing a kimono. The perfect one seemed to constantly elude me, until I found this one.

Well I’m happy to say I’m not running into the same problem this fall. I found this knit kimono on the Target website and thought I’d give it a try.  Woohoo! I love it and it looks like I’m not alone, because at the moment it’s sold out. Just remember the cardinal rule of shopping is to keep checking and it just might show back up. #fingerscrossed

This particular day I threw it on over a basic tee and jeans, added some mules, leopard earrings, my favorite tote and a great statement necklace.

The versatility of a knit kimono like this will have you reaching for it again and again. I’ve already dressed it up {literally} with dresses and of course down, like I have here. I’ve carried it to the movies and can use it as a wrap or a blanket. I’ll be traveling with it and who knows what else. Let’s just say, a piece like this will be a real workhorse.

This necklace is a great addition to so many outfits. It comes in 7 colors and I currently have 3, the off white, turquoise and black.



I’m joining the girls of The Blended Blog for their Fall Fashion Frenzy link up, so make sure you hop over there and see what other kimonos are being shared. The best way to discover new pieces is often through word of mouth. I find so many great things through fellow bloggers and I’m betting you will too.

    That’s SO my type of kimono! I love how versatile it is, and that olive color is perfect transitioning to fall. And, as always, you’re gorgeous and chic, my friend!

    Super cute and PERFECT for fall! Love this! They better restock soon! Once again so much better on YOU than the website. It looks like the perfect weight for me – not too heavy so I don’t die of heatstroke! Love that necklace and bag too – heck I love the whole thing and the lady wearing it!

    I am so excited!! I found it at one of several Target stores in my area. Such a cute outfit!!

    • September 24, 2018 / 4:02 pm

      Oh YAY, Kathy!!! I would have loved the coral/rust color, but since I’d just bought a sweater that color, I just couldn’t justify it. Hope you love yours!!!! XO

      You’re exactly right, Jodie. It’s a great alternative to a cardigan. XO

    Now, that is quite a cake! Chocolatey deliciousness in every bite, I am sure. My daughter LOVES chocolate cake and my son loves vanilla. Sigh. That knitted kimono is just gorgeous and it really looks lovely with your Barrington tote, too!

      We’ve only eaten 2 pieces so far, and the rest in the freezer. The kids are hoping to get some at Christmas. LOL, I guess we’ll save it. I am wearing that kimono over and over. XO
