My Head-To-Toe Look From Kohl’s ~ $100 Giveaway


Over the weekend I did something I haven’t done in a long while. I went shopping, by myself, for myself. Waaa hooo! It was such a treat. Usually any new additions to my wardrobe are grabbed as I am rushing through the store with my girls in tow or purchased online. (Thank heavens for online shopping.) It was such a nice treat to have two hours to myself to browse the racks and actually try on clothes! 

The inspiration behind this treat was Kohl’s Grand Opening Sale. Kohl’s is celebrating the Grand Opening of three new stores in Michigan City, Ind.; Hyannis, Mass. and Keene, NH. (Congrats to folks in those areas, you are gonna love Kohl’s!) To celebrate three new stores, Kohl’s held Grand Opening sales in all stores across the country and online. (It was like a big party where the guests got to save money – sweet!) 

My challenge, from Kohl’s was to created a head-to-toe look for fall for $200. After scooping out the women’s department, and filling my arms, this is what I concurred. So fun.

So here it is, my head to toe look. Everything you see is from Kohl’s (except for my rings).

I quickly discovered that I adore the Lauren Conrad line for Kohls. I am slightly obsessed with lace right now, so I totally got into her many shirts with lace detail. I tried on a LOT of Lauren Conrad clothes, and apparently she and I share a similar style. 

Finally I settled on a shirt and a pair of jeans that I had to have (both Lauren Conrad). As a work-at-home-mom, I don’t need a lot of dressy clothes, but I do need nice casual looks. The shirt I choose will be perfect for running around town and even volunteering in the classroom (which I start this week!).

After choosing the perfect outfit, I was off to accessorize. Kohl’s has a great selection of costume jewelry. In fact, last time I needed accessories for an event (the Monster’s University Premiere) I came to Kohl’s for the perfect bracelet and jacket. I quickly found a necklace and bracelet that I had to have. Since I lost my last pair of silver hoop earrings, I was pleased to find a new pair for less than $10. Then I spotted some Halloween jewelry and I decided to throw in some orange and black bling for fun.

And let’s talk about those sunnies. They were a last minute addition to the look. A FL girl can’t go outside without sunnies, and I have been wanting a pair of gold aviators. So when I spotted these from afar, I had to have them. Up close, I realized they are also Lauren Conrad.

Next I was off to go shoe shopping!!! Fall makes me think of boots. I was thrilled to find these flat boots by Candies. I have problems with my feet and I can’t wear most boots because the heel height is to high. I already have a pair with low heels, but these flat boots will be perfect for everyday. They are so comfortable, I might actually wear them every day. (Although I have to wait a few weeks, it is still 80 degrees out and people would look at me funny.)

Finally momma decided to get a new bag. I found a great black bag from Simply Vera by Vera Wang. Big and roomy — just the way I like it.

After checking out and ringing everything up, I realized I was still only at $165 for my entire look. So I went back and purchased a second shirt by Lauren Conrad. Since everything I bought coordinates, it is really like I got two head-to-toe looks for $200. How’s that for smart shopping.

Plus it is Kohl’s Cash time where you earn $10 to shop later for every $50 you spend, so I also earned $$$ to come back and shop later. (I already know what I am going back for!)

So what do you think about my look?

  1. I LOVE the outfit you selected (and the lace shirt as well)! Lauren Conrad’s line is my favorite at Kohl’s! You did great, I would totally wear everything you picked.

  2. I’d so go shopping for a pair of boots like those! They’re sweet! I could do with a new handbag, something with tons of pockets and compartments. And I’d top it off with a nice warm cardigan sweater.

  3. Your selections were loverly! I’m in Kohl’s every so often. I could really use business casual clothes, like a top and straight-leg jeans for myself, to whisk away the frumpiness!

  4. I would check out the Lauren Conrad line – you look amazing! I love how Kohl’s keeps signing amazing designers to create exclusive lines!!

  5. As much as I want to say stuff for me, Christmas is less than 90 days away, so I’d definitely just start Christmas shopping!!!

  6. I would love to win to buy clothes for my son in his second year in medical school. They go to alot of marathons and other social events around the community so he is representing the college in a way so we want him to look presentable. We are so proud of him and all of our children. πŸ™‚

  7. I would shop for nice casual clothes. I buy things then realize that they don’t look nice on me. I would spend more time and choose smarter clothes that I can wear and over time still wear and feel good about how i look.

  8. I would shop for a brand new pair of jeans. I have lost a lot of weight recently..I started dieting and exercising like crazy and have already dropped 3 pant sizes. I can’t wear any of my jeans now and all my clothes look baggy on me..making me look bigger. I would love to get some new shoes and shirts as well for fall!

  9. I would totally shop at Kohls – since I already do – lol. And I love the bonus cashback time!! I try to plan my Christmas shopping around one of those events – I do the first trip, get the cash back, and then go back and do some more with my bonus – Kohl’s makes it so easy to save money and get good deals – it’s hard to go wrong!! (:
    Thanks for the giveaway offer!

  10. I love Kohl’s! As a matter of fact I just found my new favorite jeans there- Lauren Conrad. I would definitely buy new jeans- you can’t have too many!

  11. I’d get myself a pair of maternity jeans, some long/flowy cardigans that will work for pregnancy and after the baby comes, and a large purse!

  12. I would buy some fall and winter clothes for my daughters. Thanks so much for hosting this giveaway!


  13. I am in that awkward stage where my pregnancy clothes look weird and my pre-pregnancy clothes don’t fit yet. So two months postpartum and I need pretty much everything: jeans, sweater, shirts…pretty much everything!

  14. I would love to shop for cardigans and a denim jacket.

  15. I love your fun suggestions for DIY and would love to win this gift card to DIY a new outfit for myself for fall! What girl doesn’t need new clothes!?!?!

  16. If I won the gift card, I’d go fall shopping as well! LC has SUPERB style and I always find myself ooh-ing and ahh-ing over all of her gorgeous jewelry! But I live in the desert where it’s crazy hot in the summer and quite chilly in the winter, and since having a baby I am in need of a wardrobe update! I can relate to grabbing any quick items in passing πŸ™‚ thanks for inspiration!! XO

  17. Hi! πŸ™‚ Going to need lots of new jeans of all sorts of colors when I hit my goal weight – hopefully by the end of the year! πŸ™‚


  18. Ac!!! Just look at all the Polka Dots! I looooove them! I’m so into polka dots–looks like I’m going to be needing to head to Khols soon!! Totally in love with the look you created!

  19. I definitely need clothes for myself. I am your classic frumpy stay at home Mom/ Housewife. I always get what everyone else needs and always take care of myself last. So if I won this GC I promise to buy myself some clothes. I’d like nothing more than to feel beautiful again. Good luck to all.

  20. I love shopping for purses and perfume at Kohls so I would probably gravitate towards those items if I won! I could also use some new boots though so I would check their shoes out as well! Thanks!

  21. I want a few nice tops, and I would share with hubby and my daughter as well…we love Kohls and take advantages of Kohls bucks and shopping during their sales and clearances to get some great deals.

  22. I am in desperate need for some blankets in my house so that is what I would shop for at Kohl’s. I really like the Ultrasoft Ribbed Fleece Blankets they have.

  23. Oh my gosh, I need new everything, it’s been so long since I got something for myself! I’d probably hit the bras and underwear, and then maybe some shoes!

  24. What will you shop for at Kohl’s if you win?

    I will buy a $100 worth of thong panties and instead of dollar bills will tip the strippers with thongs.

    I like it when the beat goes da na da na
    Baby make your booty go da na da na
    Girl I know you wanna show da na da na
    That thong th thong thong thong

  25. I would first look for the boots I like. If they don’t have them then I would find a stylish fall apparel that I would love to wear.
