Living in Philadelphia, I have grown used to the abrupt change in seasons when winter ends and the warm weather begins. Usually, I can just go from wearing a winter coat to needing no coat at all, but this year has been different. We’ve had more rain and just slightly chilly days than ever before, so I found myself in need of some transitional clothing, especially as my one raincoat is woefully huge on me since my recent weight loss. Needing to stay within my tight clothing budget and with little time to go to an actual brick and mortar store, I turned to Kohls.com to find a stylish, lightweight belted trench for under $100. I was pleasantly surprised to find that my $100 bought the trench plus a nice spring skirt and a cute pair of flats, since this crazy weather is definitely not conducive to my warm weather mainstay of sandals and/or flip flops. I even had a few bucks left over for my next shopping trip!
The trench coat is both flattering and functional. A detachable hood can be removed on nice days when I just want a light coat but don’t need to shield myself from the rain. I love that it cinches at the waist, but the pleating makes it flair a bit so it doesn’t feel too form-fitting. It looks great with anything from jeans and flats to a dressy ensemble. And as a mom, I value to the two deep pockets that manage to hold cell phones, keys, snacks, and matchbox cars. Not only are the shoes my favorite color, but they mix classy tweed and corduroy without feeling like they are relegated to cold-weather wear. I love the little details of the modern pattern inside the shoe and the brown leather strip up the back. Oh, and they’re comfortable too! As a big fan of color blocking, this skirt was a must-by from the second I saw it. It adds a nice touch of variety to my collection of spring professional wear, and I’ve been in desperate need of new work skirts since my old pencil skirts are so big on me that they’re more like sacks than curve-hugging pieces. I was very happy to find these items to spice up my wardrobe as I work to build a collection that fits my changing shape without breaking the bank.
I would also like to note that Kohl’s website made the entire process incredibly easy, with quick shopping and check-out options. The site is well-organized and easily searchable for exactly the items I want, and they tend to have many sale items in stock for far longer than they last on the racks in the stores.
