Outdoor Adventuring with Kohl's

Ahhh, the great outdoors. There’s literally nowhere else I’d rather be! Whether it’s picnicking in the park, or exercising outside, I’m game for it all. Of course, having the right gear makes an outdoor adventure safer and more comfortable, and when the gear is cute it only adds to the fun.

I put together two head-to-toe looks from Kohls.com for outdoor activities. While shopping for a cold-weather picnic, I discovered that Kohl’s has the cutest collection of picnic baskets (these would make such a great gift!), as well as a great selection of boots and outdoor accessories. (Like my duck Boots, and this cute hat. My ivory sweater and shearing cardigan are also from Kohl’s.)

For a workout in the park, Kohl’s has a huge selection of active wear for women. These lightweight Nike leggings and gray Nike hoodie (below) are great foundation pieces for any active wardrobe, and I love the pops of purple with the EcoVessel water bottle and Nike sneakers. And naturally I’ll need some headphones, because I can’t exercise without beats!

Head on over to Kohl’s to shop these looks, and their entire selection of outdoor gear and exercise equipment for all your upcoming adventures!

Have you ever stumbled upon the perfect outfit, only to find it's sold out?! That's the story with today's inspiration photo. Saw it, immediately wanted the outfit, but the vest was sold out. Thankfully, a quick online search turned up another one that looks super similar. I wore it over all-black just like the inspiration, but switched to over-the-knee boots. We still have a couple months before it's cold enough to wear, but I so appreciate how warm this outfit is while still being stylish! It will be the perfect look for a birthday party or date night with the hubs.

Today's Everyday Fashion: Happy Halloween

Truth be told, I'm a bit of a scrooge when it comes to Halloween. I'm completely lazy about getting dressed up and never want to do it! Today's costume was the perfect storm: it was quick, easy and inexpensive to put together, and the cherry on top - I'm able to reuse most of the items again. It's basically this exact outfit post from March, I just added a beret, scarf and suspenders for $27 total. With some white gloves and face paint I could be a mime, or I could go as French painter (the two seem to be closely related; if you Google search costume ideas for each, many of the same images come up). I can even see some prisoner vibes, or the start to a pirate outfit. (In other words, stripes will take you far this Halloween!) I put together more quick and easy costume ideas below. What are your Halloween plans? I'd love to hear/see more easy costume ideas!
