Summer 2018 Fashion Haul

Back at it with another post on the blog. This past week has been life changing (which I’ll touch on at another time). I’ve been shopping quite a bit over the last few weeks and so it’s time for a haul. I love clearance racks and finding deals and I don’t see the harm in sharing what I find.

Kohl’s Finds

Kohl’s is one of my favorite places to shop whether it be for activewear or work. I went shopping on the 4th of July so there was a sale throughout the store. Brands that they have within Kohl’s include Sonoma, Vera Wang, Jennifer Lopez, Rock & Republic, and Lauren Conrad. Still, my go to spot is the clearance racks where items are anywhere from 50%-80% off. Yes, you have to do a little fishing, but the deals are always worth it.

I went shopping specifically for work clothes. I’ve been switching up my wardrobe as of late and doing a major purge to my closet. If I haven’t worn it in a year, out it goes. If I’m questioning how to style it, so long, farewell. For this shopping trip, I was looking to see what dresses I could find and I got pretty lucky. One was a swing dress. The other was a flowy black and white dress. I also found this super cute floral romper that has a high low style to it because of the shorts. Even when I thought I was done snooping through the racks, I stumbled across a black and white shirt that I can easily style all year round. All amazing deals for under $100. You can’t beat that.

For this particular shopping trip, for every $50 spent, you’d get $10 Kohl’s Cash. Between my grandmother and I, our total was a little over $100 so we got $20 Kohl’s Cash plus an additional 15% off. I went back the following week and the clearance racks were lackluster, so I headed to the shoe section. I scored a pair of peep toe, taupe heels that were regularly $75, marked down to $30. With the Kohl’s cash and 15% off, I only paid $8.50.

Charlotte Russe Finds

My bestie is getting married in less than 2 weeks and I’ve secured my outfit for the bridal brunch as well as the wedding. Yay, I’m maid of honor (we’ll get into wedding finds in another post). I needed shoes, COMFORTABLE shoes. I headed to the mall with my sister and she suggested Charlotte Russe. They were having a sale, buy one/get one for $5. I first tried on this gorgeous black and gold pair. The heel was a metallic gold and it looked amazing on my foot, but the size 10 was too big and the size 9 was too small. Of course there were no half sizes, so I had to find another option.

I found a simple black pair of ankle strap heels that were comfy due to the chunky heel. These would replace a pair I bought from JustFab a few years ago. Since I could get a pair for $5, I mean why not. My sister picked out a peep toe pair. Again, the chunky heel makes it more durable to walk in. Grand total, two pairs of shoes for a little over $40. Not too shabby. I’m not a heel girl, but I wouldn’t mind strutting in these when need be as they don’t kill my feet.

I’m not a fashionista in any way shape of form and what I buy isn’t for everyone, but it works for me. That’s all that matters, right?
