Everyday Runway

One of the main reasons why I started my blog nearly 6 years ago was to help encourage other women to look & feel their best.  I've always believed that when you put on clothes that make you feel pulled together, you have more confidence.  I found this to be true when I was a stay-at-home mom and my kids were little - even if we were just running to the grocery store or walking to the park, putting on a cute outfit and a little makeup helped boost my mood for the day.  And, now that I work full-time from home, I notice a big difference in my own focus & productivity when I actually get dressed & ready each morning (as tempting as it is to stay in my pajamas). 

As much as I loved watching the playback of all the runway shows from NYFW, most of those looks (while beautiful) aren't accessible for me & they aren't really wearable for the average woman.  Which is why I was excited to hear about the new Kohl's Everyday Runway campaign, that's promoting the idea that you can still show off your personal style while going about all your regular day-to-day activities & staying on a budget!  Whether you're running errands, walking the dog or meeting up with friends for coffee, there are lots of affordable ways to express your personality through the clothes you wear & flaunt your strongest assets.  So today I'm sharing two new looks based on this concept & highlighting some versatile fall pieces that will easily update your style for the season. Right now you can get 15% off any amount with code BIGSAVER or 20% off $100 with code SUPERSAVER + you'll earn $10 Kohl's cash for every $50 you spend!


I'm pretty sure there's nothing more comfortable than a cozy knit poncho.  The cabled detailing on this one makes it look more like a hybrid between a poncho & a sweater (it also comes in 3 other colors).  I love the ankle-length of these jeans, which makes them perfect for wearing with higher shaft boots so you don't have to worry about that awkward bunching or rolling them up.  They also have a cool raw-edge hem that gives them a modern vibe.  This poncho would also be cute layered over a plaid button-down shirt with black leggings & riding boots.

What I'm wearing:


I've mentioned this before, but feminine blouses are a big trend for the season - this chic white bow top is such a great versatile option.  Try layering it under a v-neck sweater with the bow-tie pulled out on top; wear it under a moto jacket with jeans for a little edge or tuck it into a pencil skirt with pumps for a ladylike look.  I'm partial to this sweater vest, which is great for those of you who live in warmer climates and can't pull off a thicker boyfriend cardigan just yet.  I'd also dress this vest down by styling with a striped long-sleeve tee, denim & leather sneakers.
