Dress Shopping with Kohl’s

*Screaming* Spring is finally here!

The weather  finally broke here in Georgia and I am crossing my fingers that we have seen the last of  freezing temperatures for awhile. Now is that awkward time in your wardrobe life where you aren’t quite ready to pull out your summer clothing but it’s too warm for your winter things. Kind of like that pregnancy phase where you are too small for maternity but too big for regular clothes. Feel me?

Dresses are a great way to combat this wardrobe tight rope walk. Putting on a dress and layering it with a jacket or throwing on a pair of tights underneath are great options to start bringing a little Spring and Summer into your wardrobe. Little peeks, like those budding bushes are just enough to keep you anxious for consistently warmer days.

I took a trip to Kohl’s recently and again they did not disappoint when it came to a great selection of dresses to start the Spring wardrobe transition. From maxi dresses to party dresses I was impressed. Not only was I impressed, I wanted ALL of the dresses.

Kohl's Apt. 9 Dress

Since I couldn’t have ALL of the dresses, I chose 2 dresses that I thought would have potential for me to style in different ways. That’s layman terms for I wanted to be able to get every bang for the buck out of the dresses I selected. I wanted them to be able to transform from playdate casual to date night fab.

My first selection was this coral maxi dress. Yesssss! I loved the color immediately on my skin tone. Unfortunately I won’t be wearing it without my Spanx but I know I’m not alone in the battle of the belly bulge.

Play date casual, quick run to the grocery store, run an errand is what I call this look.


A Day at the beach, my hair isn’t up for lookers, and lunch with the homegirls. I have options with this one.


I only have date night on this one. Nothing too fancy, just a little night out on the town.


I rarely go with short dresses, so I took a walk on the wild side and picked up this to the knee number. I think I am loving Coral this season.

Night out with the girls, date night, a wedding….


Take me to church with my pearls on…or somewhere where the AKAs are.


Playdate, lunch with the girls, a day of shopping…again options

Dresses are certainly an easy way to look fab instantly. Add a few accessories a headwrap and some shoes and you are out the door.

For those of you that follow me on Instagram…I did say yes to this dress. I just need that real good pair of Spanx to rock this one. You’ll see it again soon. I promise!

Are you a dress girl? Will you take my advice and take a walk on the wild side and show a ‘lil leg this season? Are you a maxi dress girl or do you prefer short and sexy?

  1. I wear dresses 85% of the time. I have some that dress up and down and I have some that are purely casual. I have them in maxi and short. I just added 3 new fit and flair dresses to my wardrobe. I love how easy and functional dresses are. They are my “go-to” thing.

    1. I know in California they are great for keeping cool. I have tried the fit and flair yet. I did the short one now I guess it’s time I give one of those a whirl.

      Kiss the baby for me and get her a ball and bat!

  2. Honey, let me tell you. I purchased that printed/pale pink bodycon Jennifer Lopez dress a few weekends ago and it is EVERYTHING. The fit is amazing and I received so many compliments on. You look smoking hot in it!

    Guess I’ll be heading back to Kohls soon…

      1. Girl, I wore a dress similar to that and i dressed it down by tying a long sleeve denim button up around my waste and I loved it. It made it feel like an everyday dress + it was CUTE!

  3. I love have you styled each stress! I LOVE dresses. Being 6’0 with a 38″ inseam is hard to find pants…dresses never disappoint! I like to show leg but I also love a good maxi when I can find one long enough! Thanks for the share. P.S. The JLo dress you leaked on instagram is about to be mine!

  4. In the summer time I live in maxi dresses! I live the shorter one though! That would be great for church or even work! I really need to get over to Khols!

    1. You do. I promise, Kohl’s is slept on. Mess around and get some Kohl’s cash back and you are indeed winning!

  5. Mimi girl you are gorgeous!!! You are wearing everything perfectly in this post…the head wrap, sundress everything and it’s all so perfect for spring. I love it! 🙂

  6. i live in dresses all spring and summer long…so easy and versatile. and guess what?! i’ve been seeing lots of striped maxis on Pinterest and now you’ve modeled this one so i must take that as a sign that i should have one too!

  7. I together with my friends happened to be checking out the good techniques on your web blog and then immediately came up with a horrible feeling I never expressed respect to the blog owner for those strategies. My boys came consequently glad to read all of them and now have surely been using those things. Thanks for truly being indeed kind and also for making a decision on variety of high-quality topics most people are really wanting to be aware of. My very own honest apologies for not saying thanks to earlier.
