How to Style a Maxi Dress

I participated in an Ambassador program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Kohl’s. I received Kohl’s gift cards and sample pieces to facilitate my posts and as a thank you for participating.  

Have you checked out the Peter Som for Design Nation at Kohl's yet? I mentioned before that I had a sneak peak of some the collection a few weeks back. I ordered the Splattered Maxi Dress and it when it arrived I was in love! The material is a very soft Jersey.  That means it is a great dress for travel, will pack easily and not be a wrinkled disaster when you arrive at your destination. I love the soft colors, the fabric is light which will be perfect in hot weather and it has pockets which is always nice. A Maxi dress can be easily transformed from day to night with the right accessories. I am a big believer of having a lot of great accessories in your closet because it can really change an outfit quickly and help you get more use out of all items in your wardrobe.

A pair of chandelier earrings and silver wedges would be perfect for a night out on the town. I love all kinds of earrings because they can really change the look of an outfit very easily.

You can never have too many jackets in your closet. A dark denim jacket and flat silver sandals makes this a perfect outfit to brunch with friends.

I love sunglasses and you can never have many too many pairs! A big pair of sunglasses would be great with this dress for an outside wedding.

 Throw on a straw hat, flat sandals and you will be  ready to explore while on vacation.

Throw on a jean jacket with the hat and this would be a great outfit to hit the farmer's markets in the morning when it is cooler.

How do you like to style a Maxi?

I love that I can wear flat sandals with them during the day and put on heels or wedges on at night. You can easily change the look of a Maxi with the right accessories. I fell in the love with the Splatter Maxi dress and pre-ordered it on the 7th. I am heading to Mom 2.0 Summit in a few weeks. While there I will be attending the garden party and thought this would be a fun dress for the event! I love the cut of the dress and the slit makes it perfect to dress it up for a night on the town. The best part is the dress is now on sale for $58!

Style Challenge: 2 Dresses Worn 7 Ways

I participated in an Ambassador program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Kohl’s. I received Kohl’s gift cards and sample pieces to facilitate my posts and as a thank you for participating.  

This is the time of the year that I love, I can finally ditch my heavy winter gear and wear dresses again! You can often find me wearing a dress in the spring and summer. I have always been a big fan of dresses but when I became a mom I found myself wearing them a lot more often. For me dresses always seem to speed up the process of getting ready and out of the house with two kids, plus they make me feel put together. I also like that I can buy a few dresses but wear them many different ways. I recently went shopping at Kohl's for two new dresses. They had an amazing selection of on trend spring dresses. I had a lot of fun trying on lace dresses, floral dresses, sheaths and of course lots of Maxi's!  This Apt 9 Striped Maxi dress is a must have for my summer wardrobe. I love that I can dress it up with a pair of wedges, gold jewelry and a clutch for a date night.

The best part of a Maxi is that you can really change the look easily. A light denim jacket, a long necklace and a pair of cute black flat sandals is a perfect outfit for the days that I am running around with the kids or need to meet friends for lunch.

You can never have too many jackets in your closet. A jacket can really change the look of an outfit. The darker denim jacket dresses the Maxi up and still keeps it casual with a long silver necklace and silver flats. This is a great look for meetings in the city or when I need to help out at my kids school.

I went out of my comfort zone and bought this AB Studio Sheath Dress in Avocado because I love the fit.  I normally don't wear a lot of green but this dress was super flattering. As I styled this dress, I fell in love with it because it can be worn for a lot of different occasions. I plan to wear it on Easter with a colorful scarf and taupe patent heels.

When heading to an event in the city during the day, I will pair the sheath dress with a colorful scarf, dark denim jacket and silver wedge sandals.

For an important meeting that I want to look stylish but professional, I will throw on big gold earrings, my favorite black blazer and black pumps.

Its wedding season and the green dress paired with gold accessories, black pumps and clutch would be perfect for a spring or summer wedding. I could switch the black pumps for a pair of strappy heeled sandals or peep toe heels  for a more fun look.

What is your favorite dress style?

Sneak Peak of the Peter Som Collection at Kohl's! #PeterSomforKohls #MC

I participated in an Ambassador program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Kohl’s. I received Kohl’s gift cards and sample pieces to facilitate my posts and as a thank you for participating.  

Spring is officially here and most of us are experiencing warmer temperatures! I don't know about you but I am ready to do ditch my winter wardrobe for something more colorful and fresh! A lot of  people are heading on spring break or vacation over the next several weeks and are looking for fun pieces to bring with them. As a Kohl's Fashion Ambassador I got a sneak peek of the Peter Som for DesignNation Collection that will be exclusively at Kohl's stores in April!  I love that Peter Som created this collection with inspiration from St. Barth's. He used Corals, blues and black and white patters for maxi dresses, rompers and jumpsuits. These are items that you can wear through the summer. I have to tell you that the fabrics are amazing!

Add the right statement necklace and these outfits will be perfect for a night out on your vacation or for a date night this summer! I am loving these   turquoise , silver and mixed blues statement necklaces. They are light and perfect for warmer weather.

I am a huge fan of sandals and you can never have enough pairs. Wedge sandals are my personal favorite. I also love an adorable flat sandal especially for the days you want to look chic but are chasing the kids around.

The collection has great pieces that can easily be worn by a mom that loves fashion. I am looking forward to adding some of the dresses, shorts and shirts into my spring/summer wardrobe.

Ready to shop the Peter Som collection at Kohl's? You can  shop the pre-sale  April 4th and 5th. The entire collection will be available online on April 7th and in Kohl's stores on April 10th.

Mommy Style:Dressing For The Holidays

When it comes to dressing for the holidays I like to be stylish but also comfortable when I am hosting. This year we are hosting Thanksgiving. I try to find a few pieces that I can add to my wardrobe that will get me through the holiday season for various events that I can style in a few different ways. Right now Kohl's has some things that I love and would be a perfect to get me through the holiday season. I am obsessed with these black patent Lauren Conrad heels. These will look great with an awesome dress or wide leg pants.

 These wide leg trouser pants are a classic and can be styled many different ways. They work well for a date night, going to work or a stylish holiday party.

For Thanksgiving I want to be comfortable but still feel stylish and this lace sweater is perfect.

Love this wrap sweater that would allow me to be comfortable and chic all at the same time.

 This Belle Brunch Applique top would look amazing with the wide leg trouser pants for a fun holiday outfit.

What will you be wearing for the Holidays?

Disclousure: I was not paid for this post. I did receive a gift card from Kohls for holiday shopping. My opinions are honest and my own.
