I have to admit, I didn’t get it. I just couldn’t understand the robe lifestyle. So when the new Erin Condren Kimono landed on my doorstep a few days ago, I side-eyed it a bit. Classic Kayla. Always so skeptical of change and something new. Like with most things, I was oh so wrong.
Everything about this robe is perfect. The pattern is downright gorgeous, the material is buttery soft, and the weight of the fabric isn’t too heavy for all-year wear. Plus it’s a really nice length. I’ve tried a robe or two in the past and find them just too short for wearing them around the house if there are guests over. I rather avoid any potential embarrassing interactions.
The biggest perk for me? The pockets. What is it about women’s clothing that makes them believe that I don’t need a pocket? It’s perfect to slip my phone in so I can veg around the house in pure comfort. I’m wearing a size Medium in the photos and I love how lightweight and flow-y it feels.
This would be a fantastic gift for a bride-to-be, for the wedding party, or for a mother-in-law. I already have a few hard-to-shop-for people in mind that this robe would do just the trick.
Now $50 does feel a bit pricey for a robe, but I’m a firm believer in never shopping with Erin Condren without a discount or coupon in hand. You can save $10 off your first purchase if you just have to have this now, but I say wait it out until there’s a deal or a good sale. Now excuse me while I continue to putz around lookin’ comfortably stylish.
