Virtual Dressing Room - Kohl's

I just love shopping and the dressing room experience is my favorite part. I know many would disagree but I feel like it's my opportunity to try new things and be pleasantly surprised. I feel like the "Dressing Room " is my Oyster and I may just find a pearl.. LOL ! I know corny but that's so me a Cornball !  So for you ladies that hate the dressing room I am bringing it to you from the comfort of your computer.. :) 

I wanted to share my dressing room favorites this week from of my favorite stores +Kohl's .  I am focusing on Dresses and a few skirts because as you know this girl loves her some dresses ! 

Kohl's is perfect for the Fashionista on a budget like myself . The coupons ,the Early and Late bird deals and Kohl's cash make for some pretty amazing deals !  

Let's talk about my favorites at Kohl's right now !

                                                        Patterned Midi's 

I just love a midi dress they are classy and feminine. I thought these dresses were perfect for the office , church or a wedding. So they all can be used for that functional summer dress for almost any occasion.  All three of these ran pretty true to size just FYI

                                                            Floral Fun 

It is certainly a must for me to have floral dress for warmer temps or should I say several . As you can see from the last floral that this girl has a serious problem making up her mind.  This is just few of fabulous floral choices at +Kohl's  right now . I liked all three of these but my favorite would be the center Candies dress. I feel like it 's pretty but a little bit of sexy perfect for that summer date night.  The third dress  the JLO dress was beautiful in color but I don't think it was that flattering on this pear shape but maybe with the help of a belt I could pull it off.

                                                           Striped Skirts 

I just think stripes make everything more interesting and when they are strategically placed they can kind of contour your body . I feel that Kohl's got the memo on that with this little skirt. This skirt is perfect to just throw on with a tank top and still look fashionable and put together . I need easy and effortless pieces it just makes my life a little bit easier

                                                        Chambray Dress

The classic look of denim is one of my favorites and I love the lighter chambray in the warmer months.  This dresses possesses all the elements I love in a casual cute dress .  First of all it's A-line and ladies you know that A- line is almost every girls friend.  I love the length I don't feel I am in danger of giving anyone a peep show and lastly I love the little open back area that still allows you to wear a bra and at this point of my life that is a must ! This dress runs a little big I actually went a size down when I tried this on.    So you need to say yes to this dress.. I'm just saying :)

The Love of Color

I think I was born with a bright and colorful soul! There is something about bold and vibrant colors that just make my heart smile . Beautiful color can make what just seems like an ordinary piece of clothing way more exciting.  The luxurious feel of this fabric gives these maxi's the glamour effect without doing to much. It is the perfect addition to your wardrobe. 

These maxi dresses have great flow and lines but it is he beautiful colors that really made me fall in love . The rich purple and vibrant orange just takes this maxi to another level . I really couldn't decide which one I fancied more so when in doubt you get them both. LOL . These are two dresses that will defiantly make a statement however you decide to style them.

New Chapter .. New Dress

It has been such an emotional weekend for me, my baby girl left for summer program at college.  I can't express the pride I feel for this bright and beautiful young lady but there is part of me that hates to see her leave. I know that she doing the best thing for her future and exactly what I want her to .. Live her dreams!  I think there was a part of me that felt like a part of my life is over but than as I thought about it I realized that not only is my sweet daughter starting a new chapter of her life her mama is to.    

I had such a good time at this photo shoot I think because my sister was taking the photos.  See when  my teenage son take the the pictures he is so annoyed as you can imagine any teenage boy would be and says " How many more Mom?"  it is beyond frustrating. When my sister Erin takes the photos she has so many ideas and it's so refreshing and I can been totally comfortable with her and tell her " Heck no I am not doing that " Lol  .  She is a nature person and you will see that reflected in many of these photos and I love that she takes me out of my comfort zone. I mean even though I am "Curlybyrdie" I don't typically sit in trees.. LOL .

This dress is another simply gorgeous dress  from +Eccentric kristoure  boutique . This dress certainly lives up to it's name "Radiant Rise " maxi dress .  The fabric of this dress is so vibrant and its the type of material that just flows perfectly and doesn't lose it's shape .  I wanted to do a little pattern mixing with these fun tie up floral shoes I picked up from +Kohl's  that make me feel like the ultimate " Fashionista" . 

                              Dress - Eccentric Kristoure, Shoes - Candies - Kohl's

Yellow the color of sunshine seem to represent  cheerful vibes, happiness and enthusiasm and this beautiful ""Feeling Free Maxi " at Eccentric Kristoure really brightened my day the first time I laid my eyes on it.  What I love the most about this skirt is that it totally could be styled various ways like I could totally see me rocking it with and tank and jean jacket or even with gold sandals nice top and a clutch and out to dinner you go.  Either way you decide to style this skirt be prepared to make a statement when you walk in that room and we like to do that once in while don't we ladies?
