Grab a Kimono … The Hip, New Mom Cardigan

Does your mom style ever get in a style rut?

The same old thing, day in and day out? You know what I mean, the washable cardigans and cool mama t-shirts. I love the normal, trust me … it’s my uniform too! But, every once in awhile, I like to mix things up for my weekly trip to Costco 🙂

Every mama has a pair of jeans and a simple tee or tank and now, thanks to the comeback of the kimono, there is an easy way to dress up our simple staples! Yay! Bring on the kimonos!

I’m a big fan of vibrant pieces in my wardrobe – bright scarves, fun wedges and yes, kimonos. They’re the perfect mix for my simple, everyday outfits and as a mom, I’ve found them to be great nursing cover-ups too! Here’s a round up of the pretty ones I’m eyeing for fall – aren’t they just lovely?!?
