Cute Summer Kimonos for Under $25

Hi guys! I'm still around, I'm just having too much fun this summer to sit in front of a computer for too long! I'm sure you understand ;) Summer is the time, as a stay-at-home mom that I really get a chance to connect with my girls before they are swept up into yet another busy school year. I really cherish every second we get to spend together, and am finding the ages of 7 and 9 to be pretty delightful! Last week my youngest had Cheer Camp, which was so adorable. I had a few misty eyed moments, thinking of how she was learning to cheer at the same school where I first tried out for cheerleading many, many years ago. Full circle people, full circle. This week we are heading to round two of swim lessons, since they had so much fun the first time around. 

I thought I would pop in real quick to share one of my latest summer obsessions: the kimono. I've been calling it my "summer sweater", because you can pretty much throw one on over anything, and it gives you the slightest warmth from any cool breezes or air conditioning. The sheer fabric breathes easily though, and does not weigh you down or make you feel any hotter in the sun. I recently picked up this kimono at Forever 21 and have been wearing it non-stop. You can see how I styled it recently on insta, and generally it is some version like this:





It doesn't make sense to spend any more than around $25 for a cute kimono, and there are plenty of options out there. My personal preference is one that hits around the hip area, is straight across or slightly longer in back ( I avoid scarf hemlines or dusters, just not a fan), and void of any long fringe, as that leans a bit too teenager for me. Below are my picks that meet that criteria, as well as the price point of under $25. Enjoy!
