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!

Love this maxi dress, it is beautiful!! Perfect choice. I’ve not done any shopping lately, I put myself on a ban since I bought a lot during winter, haha. Time is flying by though. I hope you have a wonderful weekend xx

Hi !!!!!
I always seem to find more things while I’m out than I ever thought I would!!!!
Plus- it’s always fun getting new seperates to refresh clothes I already have to create new outfits.

Nice choices … I like your beach towel. I have to find new one too. I only bought new swimsuit for this summer … I buy mostly online … I prefer online shopping …

It so exciting to go shopping for summer. Sometimes I get carried away. I had to stop myself from being excited. Telling myself that I can wear them for a few months only. But I still love Summer.

That dress is simply perfect!!! Last week I got myself a new summer hat and a pair of sandals. Ah, I love summer.

I am thrilled summer is here. There is nothing like a nice cooling summer dress.

Lovely picks . I do most of my summer shopping when I am at my home in Spain (the range of summer- wear is much better than here in the UK).However, I have done very little buying this year. I am in the UK at the moment and we’re still having lots of rain. So difficult to get in the mood just yet x
