SAHMonday: Floral Kimono Two Ways

Welcome to another edition of SAHMonday – weekly outfit inspiration just for the stay at home and work from home moms of the world (like me!) who aren’t heading out of the house on Monday morning.  You can check out the other outfits in this series here.

These outfits are perfect for when you want to feel comfortable, yet put together, so that you can face the day and any errands you may need to run.  Plus, most of these outfit formulas can be pulled straight from your closet.  If you don’t have my exact pieces, that’s ok.  Just use one of the substitutions that I recommend.

Floral Kimono – Times Two!

I picked up this adorable floral kimono at Target a few weeks ago and have had a blast styling it in many different ways.  It makes a great lightweight top layer for a simple t-shirt and jeans for a day at home but is also easily dressed up with heels and a long necklace for an evening out.  Here are two of my favorite dressed up and down looks I’ve tried recently.

For those of you who will be doing the Spring 2017 GYPO Style Challenge opening this Friday, there will be a floral kimono on the shopping list. It will be one of the substitutions for the floral bomber jacket but you’re welcome to get both.  Shhh, just don’t tell your hubby.  🙂

And just like today’s post, I’ll also be including easy “dress it up” and “dress it down” tweaks for every outfit in the spring challenge so you’ll have tons of styling options no matter what you have going on.

Dress it Up:  Floral Kimono + Blush Blouse + White Jeans + Heels
