I am classifying this one under the “other” category (not a dress, skirt, top, or leggings). My favorite “other” piece is the Lindsay kimono! As you know from reading this blog, I am all about versatility in my wardrobe. I have worn my Lindsay to work, as a swimsuit coverup, and with my cutoffs. Just trust me on the swimsuit coverup (my family who went to Florida with me can vouch for me…), but here are some other ways I have styled mine.
FOR WORK: I am a high school English teacher, and here I paired my Lindsay with a basic white v-neck tee, gray skinny chinos/khakis, and neutral peep toe booties. I also added a long pendant necklace.
FOR DATE NIGHT: I used my pink Lindsay as a pop of color against an all-black outfit for a casual sushi date with my husband. I print mixed in the other look by pairing the stripes and leopard print together. It also helped that both kimono and skirt were black and white.
MOM STYLE: I have definitely had my eyes re-opened this summer to how difficult it is to put yourself together when you have little ones to take care of. When I am working, I am fortunate enough to have my husband around to make our morning routine easier, but when I’m not working, I am usually home with the kids trying to get them out the door for something later on in the morning.
There are days when style is the last thing on my mind, but actually, there are more days when I want to look put together but with minimal effort. And the kimono is a great piece to have around because it really adds a lot to several simple combinations. In the first picture, I wore my kimono with a basic tee, skinny jeans, and printed sandals for a movie date with my son. The second picture is the “I want to put little to no effort in getting dressed today” look. I wore the kimono over a LuLaRoe perfect tee and black leggings, then added leopard slip-on sneakers. Easy and comfy. And in the third look, I paired the Lindsay with a graphic tee and jean shorts. I added peep toe booties from Old Navy there because I was actually going somewhere without my kids, but I could easily swap out the booties with a simple pair of neutral or metallic sandals. I don’t really do flip flops a ton (just a personal preference), but I do love some flat sandals in the summer. More on my latest flat sandals haul in my next post.
The Lindsay kimono is flowy and a great summer alternative to the cardigan. I have heard several ladies say they feel self-conscious about their arms in sleeveless tops and dresses, and the Lindsay kimono allows you to wear those pieces again with a little coverage that isn’t going to make you sweat to death. It’s a fun piece to throw over pretty much any outfit for a trendy look. My tip for you is to think about what you have in your closet and try to pick Lindsays that will match up well with both your casual and dressier pieces alike. I personally went with Lindsays with stripes because they will allow me to easily print mix and will match up with several solid colors, too. The Lindsay is $48, which is a little higher than some LuLaRoe pieces. However, as you can see above, I am getting a ton of wear out of mine, so I personally don’t mind spending a bit more when I can wear it in a ton of ways.
What about sizing? A small fits sizes 0-8, a medium fits 10-18, and a large fits 18-22. I am usually a size six, and I have more than enough room in my two Lindsays. AND…I will be carrying these in my inventory, as I am OFFICIALLY A LULAROE CONSULTANT! WaHOO! I ordered my inventory on my birthday (July 18), and I could not be more excited for it to get here!
