Day To Night Style

The new season is finally here and that means it's time for a little spring cleaning.  Many of you have emailed me asking for advice on editing your closet and how to build a wardrobe that you love (see my top tips here).  In my opinion, the best idea is to invest in clothes that fit your particular lifestyle.  Because I work from home and have 2 kids, it makes the most sense for me to have more casual staples than anything else.  But, even when you're focusing on basics, that doesn't mean they have to be boring!  Incorporating different colors, textures & layers will keep your outfits looking fresh & feeling polished.  Today I'm sharing three different spring looks featuring pieces from Kohl's that will take you from morning to evening.  Right now they're having an amazing sale & I'm detailing all the codes for you below so you can take full advantage & get the lowest prices possible.

Get 15% off any purchase using code FLOWERS15 or get 20% off orders over $100 using code FLOWERS20 (thru 3/23) + you can earn $10 Kohl's cash for every $50 you spend (thru 3/26).  If you have a Kohl's card, use code FABULOUS30 to get 30% off your entire purchase & code KCMARCH to get free shipping sitewide.  Get $10 off your women's apparel purchase of $50 using code SPRINGSTYLE (thru 3/26).  The best part: I double-checked and confirmed that all these codes are stackable!


Though I usually make my own at home, sometimes it's fun to head down to my favorite local spot and grab a cup of coffee before running errands.  I threw on some casual basics that are easy & comfortable, but still look pulled together.  I love this combination of colors because it's slightly unexpected - the soft blue & deep rose play off of each other so well.  I'm a big fan of cargo jackets and the hue of this one is a nice change from the olive green I usually wear. The textured design on these sneakers instantly caught my eye & I was so happy to find a pair of sporty slip-ons for spring...although my daughter has already "borrowed" them from my closet and doesn't want to give them back!

What I'm wearing:

c/o Keds Slip On Sneakers (I went down half a size), c/o LC Lauren Conrad Backpack

I have quite a few girlfriends who are stay-at-home moms, which makes it convenient for us to meet up at a sidewalk café during the week.  This breezy embroidered top is the ideal complement to a denim pencil skirt, which has quickly become a closet staple for me.  With a pretty bucket bag (that's just the right size) & my favorite mules, I'm ready to head out the door for a leisurely lunch with friends.  Styling tip: this top would also be great with shorts, flat sandals & a straw tote (like this designer-inspired style) for a day at the beach.

What I'm wearing:
c/o Mudd Embroidered Top (wearing a Small), c/o Lee Denim Skirt (wearing size 4), ShoeMint Mules

When I'm selecting an outfit for date night with my husband, I usually gravitate towards feminine & flirty styles. This little white lace dress has such pretty details and I appreciate that it's not constricting in any way, so I can indulge in a delicious meal without worry.  Since it's still pretty chilly here in the evenings, I topped it off with this gorgeous faux suede jacket, which is buttery soft & looks far more expensive than it really is.  With some comfortable lace-up heels & minimal jewelry, it's a chic ensemble for a night on the town.

What I'm wearing:
c/o Speechless Lace Dress, c/o Apt. 9 Faux Suede Jacket, c/o Candie's Lace-Up Heels
