Easy Summer Outfit: Kimono, Flowy Top and Shorts

It’s the last week of the summer challenge and the girls are having so much fun! I’m sad that it’s coming to an end.

Today, I’m sharing an item that was on our Pretty Fix – July List earlier this week. This is an easy summer outfit to put together with a printed kimono. I have a little confession to make…it took me a little bit to get used to this and I love it! The kimono is lightweight and easy to layer over your flowy top. Don’t underestimate what it can do to your wardrobe with a pair of heels for date nights! Here’s a preview from the Summer Challenge.


And here are a few of our challengers interpretations.

    • I’m so proud of them. 🙂

  • Tammy

    My kimono finally arrived on Thursday. I will probably wear it today with the floppy hat from Target that you showed in an earlier post!


    • I would love to see Tammy! Enjoy the kimono!

  • Love the kimono. It is definitely a great piece for a wardrobe. xo ~ Megan The Fashionista Momma

    Hi Alison!
    I was so happy to see my self in your post on kimonos! I was in Texas for the last 2 weeks and it was soo hot all I could wear was shorts and tanks. I wore my two kimonos over them and they were perfect for a little coverage, for adding a pretty flare, and for when the a/c was too cold. I even picked up a new fringed kimono to go with my new boots!
    Definitely a convert,

    • Thank you for being a part of this challenge Leti! Can’t wait to see pictures of you wearing your purchases!

  • I’m actually wearing a kimono right now, so comfy and just enough for the summer at work in the office 🙂 I bought mine off amazon and it’s less than $12!


    • I love great deals Sarah!

  • I’ve been dying to get a kimono! I saw one a couple months ago at Target and didn’t get it and I regret it every time I see one!

    • Not too late to get one, Sarah. 😉

  • I need (ok, want! ) a kimono but I need to find a short one so it doesn’t tangle in my wheels

    • You’ll love the kimono!

  • Nancy

    I got the dark blue with flowers kimono from Amazon made by Jollychic. It’s SO cute. I love it. I’m not the age (62) to go around in shorts so I’m wearing it with white t shirt and white skinny jeans. And white linen top and blue jeans. Etc. Adds a lot of pizzaz to plain outfits. It packs up microscopically also.

    • I hope you are enjoying it Nancy!

  • I ordered the dark blue kimono with flowers that you featured in your post. It just arrived and I’m looking forward to wearing it!
