Today’s post is sponsored by Kohl’s but all wording, opinions, and thoughts here are as always, my own.
When’s the last time you went to Kohl’s? For me, it had been WAY too long. Like, life in Georgia too long. Maddie & I found ourselves browsing TWO different Kohl’s locations today because the first one just wasn’t enough for us. We actually went in to browse for Candie’s brand items to come to share with y’all because . . . .
BACK TO SCHOOL SEASON IS UPON US!
Between August 2nd and August, 18th receive $10 off $50 Back To School purchases! This can be used on all Candie’s apparel!
Woooo – hooooo right?! Seriously, Miss Maddie and I walked out of Kohl’s today with a new little outfit for her (That I WILL be stealing, and how we’re to this stage of life already is absolutely BEYOND me) that works for these really hot summery days as well as Fall/Winter. We know it will still be warm when school starts back up for her (mid August here) but we also know how FAST it gets cold and dumps snow on us too, so best to be prepared for more than one season. She put a lot of thought into the outfit she wanted to come home with. Before we went out, we spent some time browsing Candie’s clothing at Kohl’s online to get an idea of what we wanted to see in person. Maddie had her eye on this little blazer but wanted to FEEL it in her hands before deciding if it’s what she wanted to invest in.
They had the blazer in-store.
We browsed and browsed and found some really cute tops, some really cute bottoms. . .
Then, boom. She happened across the cutest Candie’s dress covered in little butterflies! And off to the dressing rooms we went.
Between the dress and the blazer, she was PUMPED about the outfit she found. She loved it, but ultimately the 3/4 length sleeves in the blazer didn’t work for the goal we were trying to set here (an all-season outfit for our crazy weather) AND it had fake pockets and that’s a big no for her. Haha.
So, we checked out and headed to the next Kohl’s store chatting excitedly about all the fun things on that side of town and how hungry we’d become.
We wasted NO time in the next store, we headed straight to the Candie’s sections and dove in! We had almost given up our search planning to go back for the blazer when she spotted it! A little black sweater with a beaded collar. So adorable. Perfect to go with the dress, perfect for colder days! We didn’t even bother trying it on, just headed to the check out. After a nice chat with the cashier about how we were all basically dying from the heat, (they have AC y’all and our homes do not) we headed home pumped to show the boys and her daddy what she’d found.
We, well SHE scored some really good finds, huh?! I think she chose wisely and did a great job picking out a little outfit to cover all the seasons. She’ll throw some leggings or tights under the dress with boots in the winter and just pair the dress with sandals in the summer. AND she can wear the sweater without the dress as well. So proud of her! Haha.
