Kohl’s has always been my #1 place to shop for clothing for the whole family. They stay on-trend at budget-friendly prices. I always make a bee-line to the clearance racks, because many of their clearance items are jaw-dropping low. Also, their sales are as good as their clearance. To entice me even more, they often offer $10 for every $50 spent! More often than not, I can’t walk in there without coming out with shopping bags in tow.
Since it is officially autumn and weather reports are saying that it’s going to start getting cooler soon, I stopped by Kohl’s yesterday in search of some of the season’s best trends for the cool weather: moto jackets, bold-colored accessories, and the ever-so flattering black and white.
The first outfit I tried was a Jou Jou Faux-Leather Ruched Jacket (
Was $68.00 Now $43.99), Jennifer Lopez Faux-Leather Peplum Top ( Was $44.00 Now $33), and Simply Vera Vera Wang Slubbed Scarf in Laquer Blue( Was $32.00 Now $19.20). My husband really liked this combination, but I thought the ruching at the shoulders of the jacket was a hit or miss for me.
After putting the first items back, I trekked to the Limited Edition and Parisian-inspired Catherine Malandrino for DesigNation collection that launched while I was on vacation (September 27th), and it was mostly picked over. Then, my eyes scanned to the Catherine Malandrino for DesigNation Textured Knit Skirt (
Was $50.00 Now $37.50). I normally don’t wear skirts (mostly dresses), but somehow it was love at the first night, and there were only two left (it’s sold out online). I had to try it out! As I was making my way to the Fitting Room, I couldn’t help but notice It’s Our Time Ribbed Cowlneck Sweater ( Was $30.00 Now $19.99) even though I’m not a sweater person at all (too itchy!), but I selected the one in black to match the skirt for my one-person fashion show.
Everything fit perfectly and synced harmoniously. Needless to say, I quickly fell in love with the outfit! Since the sweater was available in a myriad of colors, I selected two more for the fall season – the Fresh Sapphire and Fall Heathered Gray. Before I made the final purchase with my gift card, I trekked to the children’s section and got my daughter a musical book to keep her preoccupied. I saved over $60 and my total came to over $120, yet I used a printable 15% off coupon to knock it down it to $105+. Since I had a gift card, all I had to do was pay a $5+ difference!
The outfit is a force to be reckoned with on its own, but I paired it with my Laundry by Shelli Segal for Woolite Scarf to make it stand out even more. I also donned my ELLE Peep-Toe Wedge Sandals, which I had bought from Kohl’s another time.
