I have so many good feels about this dress and shoe combo! It was part of my order for yesterday's post with Kohl's. It wound up not fitting the theme, but was too cute not to share in a separate (not-sponsored) post. The dress is just a tad too big and the shoes are a little more than I usually spend on statement heels, but it's SO cute together. I'm trying to decide if I should keep it and take the money from my personal budget. Would you rock this dress/shoe combo this fall?

Back to School with Kohl's

β€œBack to school, back to school…” This time of year always conjures up memories of school supply shopping and crisp, new denim! We never had a big budget for back to school shopping, but jeans were always on my wish list, as well as sneakers and some kind of athletic gear - so today I'm sharing a little bit of both.

Whether you're headed to school yourself, or have little ones to drop off (both occasions where I'd wear these outfits), or you just can't wait to do some denim shopping this time of year because it's been your tradition for ages (I'm in this last category), then today's looks are for you. I partnered with Kohl's to shop for two back to school looks from their website and store, and here's what I came up with!

The first outfit I picked is so very 70's - my favorite fashion era! Character tees are all the rage right now, they are a little sassy and tongue-in-cheek, and the ringer style makes them 70's appropriate with the high-waist flared jeans. I am so happy that flares are in style this fall - they make your legs look a mile long and are just so fun to wear. I feel like I'm in the movie Dazed & Confused in this outfit!

Flares are not the only denim kid on the block this school year though. Pretty much anything goes with denim right now, so in the second outfit I wanted to completely switch it up and go with a different kind of jeans - loose fit boyfriend jeans styled with a sporty Nike tee in an athleisure look. (Note: I went 2 sizes up to get this baggy fit.) As a tomboy growing up, I wore nothing but sneakers and sport gear to school, so I feel really comfy in this look! 

Kohl's has an amazing selection of sporty clothes and sneakers to achieve this look on a budget, as well as lots of denim choices. Check out my round up of some more favorites below.

Today's Everyday Fashion: The Unexpected Suit

I'm crushing hard on two style things right now: band tees and cropped trousers. So why not try them together? The celeb example is pulling it off perfectly and served as my inspiration. My other inspiration is the reader who asked for a recommendation on a classy way to rock a graphic tee last week. I suggested wearing it with a blazer and jeans, and the cropped trousers elevates the look even more. Would you ever wear a graphic tee with a suit?
