New Staple

I don't mean to sound extreme or anything but I've totally found the yoga pant 2.0 and it's not even a pair of pants. It's the kimono! (I know I'm probably like 3 seasons or 30 years behind or something but I'm ok with that) Back on track... What are the best things about yoga pants anyway? They are comfy? Forgiving? Pregnancy and postpartum friendly? Wearable over and over? Let's cross check that with the kimono. Comfy, forgiving, wearable in all shapes and seasons, oh and, breezy, feminine, flattering, cute, etc. This is the momiform for 2014 and beyond. Yoga pants are going to go back to just being yoga pants. Quote me.

I first heard about White Plum via Grace's blog back when she posted about those scalloped shorts. They were so cute. I never did snag myself a pair even though she dangled that 20% off deal in my face. But turns out that on top of being producers of cute shorts, the White Plum people are really wonderful. The whole brand is totally a by a mom, for moms company (which I love). So when they asked me if I wanted to pick out a thing or two to try my answers were yes and more yes. The first thing that jumped at me from the bunch was this kimono. And we've been in love ever since.

I mean, I am not even hawking kimonos (I wish I were hawking kimonos). I am a genuine believer. To prove to you how very serious I am about the importance and versatility of the kimono in any and all mom wardrobes, I've taken about 3,000 selfies in my dirty bathroom mirror as evidence. I really know how to drive home a point. You're welcome.

Feast all your eyes.

Ex 1. Scroungey me this actual morning with bronchitis. White tee (very ironed), black sweats, kimono. 1000% better because of what? Oh yes... the kimono. Nothing like some sweet, floral embroidery to bring you back from the dead.







Ex 2. Still scroungey me but maybe I want to go to the grocery store? Maybe I want to go out with Kirby but keep it super casual? Maybe we can all agree that talking about hypothetical me is weird? Anyway, I kept the same white tee and the same, you know, kimono, but dropped the sweats and added my favorite high-wasted jeans. High-wasted jeans plus yoga pants 2.0? The momest. The bombest momest.




Ex 3. How about make-believing it's the everyday me? Another tee, cutoffs and... kimono. I tied my hair up in a bun without brushing it just to keep it really real. I would probably wear this with my Converse high-tops and my gold cuff, if I could find it...




Ex 4. Dressed up kimono! Can you dress up the yoga pant? (No, the answer is no.) Throw on your favorite skirt and done! I would wear this to Mass, to a baby shower, or as an everyday, breezy/dressy look which sometimes I am in the mood for when I'm not sick. I'd probably brush my hair, too. Only diff.



Ex 5. Same tee, White Plum fleece-lined leggings (the most best) and old faithful. Casual, at home coziness but with that extra ounce of dignity that inspires one to swap out sweats for leggings. I imagine this cutest with motorcycle boots or riding boots. Neither of which I have.



Ex 6. But what if your boyfriend or husband wants to take you out that very night? Leave on your momiform but swap out the tee for a LBD and boom. (with booties) (also, take your hair outta that bun) (and brush it) (maybe)





Top it off with a sultry date-glance and a dirty shower curtain. Bing!

I think this list is pretty much endless, but I don't want you to hate me so I'll stop BUT but, isn't this an amazing discovery? I'm so pumped on my new staple. It makes everything extra cute. I'm going to assume you agree but if you don't, well... keep it to yourself. 

Now if I had another one of those coupons I would get myself this poncho and this cardigan and this dress and maybe about 37 pairs of leggings. OH WAIT, I DO. If you use the code FIKELIFE20 for the next week you can get 20% off at White Plum. Isn't that rad? Did you search "white plum coupon code"? It's ok if you did. Thanks for sitting through all my bathroom mirror pics.

P.s. my kimono (which is the best) was sold out except for large and that's what I'm wearing. Embrace the L, it's worth it.

Thanks for being so cool, White Plum!



jk, I'm only watching your Google entry searches.

  8. Very pretty! I have a question about the leggings- my teen daughter is looking for a pair that are thick enough to conceal underwear/ underwear lines (target, old navy, etc. are all made of the same thin, cheapo material). Would these fit the bill? She wears a size 2 in jeans, but the website says they are more of a one-size-fits-all type.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh I know exactly what you mean! These leggings are great, super stretchy, really thick and seamless but not lumpy or strange looking on the outside. I think I'll wear them all the time this winter. I really recommend them!
