TJ Maxx – everyone’s favorite store – is just loaded with stripes right now! Stripes is a trend that is hot for fall and luckily, TJ’s stays up on what’s hot for the season and packs their store full of everything you need. One stop shopping at it’s best, my friends!

I scored this adorable stripe tank for $14.99, the designer denim jacket was on sale for $8 and the designer peeptoe pumps were on sale for $25. The skinny jeans are neon coral skimmers from Gap.

Stripes? Check! Neon colors? Check! Dark wash denim? Check! Statement necklace? Check! I’ve got all this season’s hottest trends packed into one seamless outfit. I can easily trade out the peep toes for some ankle booties and layer a cardigan over the striped tank and under the jacket for when it’s cooler a few weeks from now.

What do you think of this outfit?

 

Today’s Outfit: Rock & Republic Jeans from Kohl’s

Rock & Republic

Today I’m wearing another pair of Rock & Republic jeans.

Rock & Republic Kashmiere Skinny Jeans are super soft and super stretchy. I am not really crazy about the light wash coloring and the particular shade of blue, but they are so incredibly comfortable and fit me so well, that I couldn’t care less. I love the back pockets too. Right now these jeans are on sale for $39.99 at Kohl’s stores and kohls.com.

Jennifer Lopez Sweater

J Lo Sweater

Now let’s talk about this adorable Jennifer Lopez for Kohl’s Colorblock Ribbed Sweater. It was originally $54 and I got it on sale for $10.80. Score! Super soft and silky. I love it.

I found a cute Simply Vera by Vera Wang layered necklace on sale for $7.60 that I paired with a Princess by Vera Wang necklace of a poodle in a frame. It was on sale for just $4.40!!!!

Vera Wang Jewelry

I even found some matching earrings on sale for $3.60. My daughter quickly snagged those from me when I got home so they didn’t make it into this outfit, like I had planned.

Today’s Outfit: Rock & Republic Jeans and Sweater

Rock & Republic for Kohl's

Check it out… It’s another pair of Rock & Republic jeans! I saved the best for last…

These Rock & Republic Berlin Skinny Jeans have gold studded R’s on the back pockets that are endlessly cool. I think they go great with this Rock & Republic black cable knit sweater I got on sale for $8.40! It was originally $84.00. What a bargain, right? I love the iridescent sheen on the front. It’s kinda flip-flop color in the sunshine too which is cool.

I also found this amazing Sonoma brand necklace at Kohl’s, on sale for $4.80 (Originally $24.00). It came in brown leather with gold studs (shown below) and gray leather with silver studs. I decided to get the gold one because all my “eclectic” jewelry is gold tone.

My mom actually came across these earrings while we were shopping together in Kohl’s and insisted they were totally “ME”. On sale for $5.60? Yes, I brought them home! I really like them because not only do they go with the necklace, but they go with a lot of other items I already own. Definitively a good investment!

Today’s Outfit: Catherine Malandrino for Kohl’s DesigNation

Catherine Malandrino

I’m rocking a Striped Oversized Cardigan from Catherine Malandrino’s new DesigNation collection for Kohl’s! I’m only 5’2″ so it’s really oversized on me! I love it though because it’s like a blanket. Soft to the touch and seems like it will wear well. I will be wearing this sweater a LOT this winter!

I’m wearing it over a basic gray button down top and Rock & Republic jeans!

The new Catherine Malandrino collection hits Kohl’s stores and the Kohls.com website on September 27th but actually the pre-sale started today with 21 select items from the collection! The collection includes apparel, including outwear and will retail for $36-$130.

“I’m very excited to partner with Kohl’s and bring my designs to every woman who wants to add a chic and feminine look to their wardrobe at an incredible value,” said Catherine Malandrino.

Check out the video where Catherine Malandrino talking about her DesigNation collection exclusively at Kohl’s! The video includes footage of Catherine explaining how her collection came to life from the inspiration of her favorite city and hometown of Paris, France. The video also includes footage from the lookbook shoot, as well as the editor preview held in New York City last May.

Today’s Outfit: Rock & Republic Destroyed Denim

Rock & Republic

Today I’m rocking some sweet fitting Rock & Republic Jeans with a cute top I snagged at Kohls last week for just $15.99.

First off, these jeans are amazing. They fit like a glove – as if they were tailored just for me! I’m 5’2″ weigh around 110lbs and the size 2 fits like a dream. They have just enough stretch to them to be comfortable, but not so much that they start looking like leggings. Very flattering cut and the sequins behind the distressed holes are a unique and surprising touch. The style is Rock & Republic Berlin Distressed Skinny jeans and while they retail for $88.00, we all know that you never pay full price at Kohls! Almost everything is always on sale and there are so many ways to save at Kohls, it’s ridiculous.

Rock & Republic Distressed Jeans

My favorite section to shop in Kohls? The jewelry section! I always find so many awesome pieces for insane prices… We’re talking like less than $5 per piece.

The necklace I’m wearing was $3.60, people. How do you beat that?

These two Rock & Republic for Kohl’s bracelets are no exception either. Each one was less than $5 on sale! You’ll have to head into stores to find these pieces because I think the whole Rock & Republic jewelry line is on sale right now. I bought at least 10 pieces… Everything was so cute, I couldn’t resist!

Rock and Republic Jewelry

These Rocket Dog Black Ankle Booties are going to get a LOT of wear this Fall. So many different ways to wear them and they are surprisingly comfortable.

Save the Children
Back to School Quilt

T.J. Maxx QuiltFor more than 29 years, T.J.Maxx has been working with Save the Children U.S. Programs to make a lasting, positive change in the lives of children. Starting this August and continuing throughout the back-to-school season, there will be three ways for shoppers to give back.

  1. Purchasing a quilt ($49.99) featuring bright, colorful designs with 25% going back to the foundation
  2. Buying a reusable STC bag at the register to tout around town
  3. Giving a dollar at the register – each effort goes a long way!

We encourage you to make an effort to do at least one of the three options above and make your back to school shopping go double duty!
