Kohl's Yes Pass

(click on picture for printable pass)

My favorite store has released another coupon!  I usually wait for the 20% off promo but if you are in need of a Kohl's promo now, here is one for 15% off.  I have a few items on my wishlist as well so I'm crossing my fingers for a 20% off one soon!  On another note, why are companies no longer doing these percentage off anymore?  Now they're just doing the buy one item, get the second 50% off deal (I'm looking at you Nine West).  I know it's a ploy to get us consumers to buy more but really, sometimes there just isn't another item that I would want so I just don't buy anything at all.  Just my two cents on BOGOHO (Buy One, Get One Half Off).  What are your thoughts on BOGOHO?

Frills and thrills

Outfit details:
strapless dress - Sara Boo via Hautelook
top - H&M
Witness pumps - Seychelles
belt - Joe's Jeans

The weather here over the long Memorial holiday weekend was fantastic.  It was sunny with a slight breeze to take the edge off of the heat from the sun.  I went to my aunt's baby shower, caught up on my zzz's, and got to lay out and relax in the sun a bit.  All in all, a very relaxing weekend filled with good food and good company.

Blue on blue

Outfit details:
Peplum Pudding Dress - Frock Stock (also in taupe)
Artist Blouse - Frock Stock (also in ivory)
shoes - Sole Society (old)
MAC bag - Rebecca Minkoff
Rock of Ages necklace - mark.
bracelets - mark. (old) & LC Lauren Conrad (old)

I've been wanting to wear this peplum dress to work for awhile now I wanted to style it another way besides going the usual route of throwing on a cardigan or jacket to make it office appropriate since it is a strapless dress. It wasn't until a lightbulb went off in my head on the usual 40 minute drive home from work that this outfit was born.  I love a good sheer pussy bow blouse since they're so feminine and versatile.  You can practically pair them anything : skirts, jeans, slacks, shorts and now dresses!

What do you think?  Are pussy bows too girly or as my daugther would say "old-ladyish" for you?

Sheered Out

Outfit details:
blouse - Old Navy (old)
jeans - Hudson (old)
Witness pumps - Seychelles
Rock of Ages necklace - mark.
Catch of the Day Clutch - mark.

Color blocking is still a big trend this season but it's also nice to sometimes throw in just a pop of color.  I decided to do that with this outfit.  I chose to do the pop of color on my lips and my toes which coincidentally matched almost exactly.  How do you wear brights??

Peplum Prints

Outfit details:
top - Kohls
jeans - Hudson via Hautelook
shoes - Sole Society (old)
necklace - H&M

I think the last time I wore any sort of peplum clothing was when I was still 7 or 8 years old.  I remember I wore this one legging that had a lime green peplum type ruffled skirt.  I thought it was great since it looked like a skirt but was actually pants.  Little details like that are important to an active young girl who liked to run around and climb on monkey bars.  Unintentional flashing was one our biggest concerns on the playground.  

About five years later, my aunt had some old clothes she wanted to get rid of and guess what she had?  Peplum tops!  Unfortunately for me, my other aunt who's around the same age as me got dibs on whatever she offered first and I got whatever that was leftover.  Needless to say, I did not get any "vintage" peplum tops.

Butterfly Flutters

Outfit details: 
butterfly dress - LC Lauren Conrad
Jordan Platform heels - LC Lauren Conrad (similar, similar)
bracelets - LC Lauren Conrad

Can you tell just how obsessed I am with the LC Lauren Conrad line at Kohl's?  These little "Yes Passes" Kohl's has been offering the last two weeks is doing some damage to my bank account.  

On the other hand, I am loving the hi-low hem line trend we're seeing this season on dresses, skirts and sometimes shirts (no actually, I'm not a fan of hi-low shirts).  The style itself can be compared to a mullet but the trend looks so much better on a dress/skirt than on hair, doesn't it?
