Normally I’m not one to go shopping for seasonal items because I know I’m capable of racking up a huge pile of things I didn’t know I needed until I’m in the store – think Nate Berkus at Target…anyone? I’m on instagram, so luckily I know I wasn’t the only one who indulged in that goodness. I’ve actually been feeling a bit guilty for a recent over-the-top spending spree at ShopBop, but when Kohls generously offered to give me $100 to spend on a summer outfit, it seemed like a fun challenge.
Have you ever shopped at Kohls? I’ve always liked the Vera Wang diffusion line and now Peter Som is doing one and it’s good. I scooped up a Peter Som maxi dress (total score, it was on sale) in time for the long weekend and wore it to a leisurely brunch – it’s really comfortable and I love the print. I was very proud of myself until my random shopping habits kicked in and I found myself wandering around Kohls with a pile of stuff…you know the drill. Having a pre-set $100 budget gave me some focus and so I put back the linen pants and random tee shirts and narrowed it down to a new beach towel and pajamas, coming in under budget.
Have you been summer shopping yet? I cannot believe it’s the end of May!
