If there such a thing as nature being bipolar and Mother Nature has it nailed. Just over a week ago we were able to wear shorts and enjoy 70 and 80° weather. This past week however has been much different including frost warnings. There were even some snow flurries this weekend but I muted all my Facebook friends that dared to speak those words. While I used to thoroughly enjoy the cold weather when I was younger, after living in Los Angeles for so long winters have become very difficult.
I love when it gets just a little bit cool. I sleep better at night and I’m able to wear boots (I love boots). Other than that I don’t like the cold. It got even worse when I started losing weight and didn’t have the extra built-in layers to keep me warm. Needless to say it was time to head to the stores for some cool weather clothes.
Generally I’m not a big fan of shopping for clothes but I do enjoy checking out all the fun stuff at Kohl’s. Whether it’s something dressy or something casual or even necessities like underwear and socks we know we can find it there. One of the reasons I like it shopping at Kohl’s is because the prices are always affordable.
This weekend we decided to stop by to take advantage of some of Kohl’s “door buster” sales. Their new fall collections are available and we figured we would see what they had for the girls. Miss M, who isn’t a fan of shopping, is in need of a new dress code shirt for the symphony. Her sister is the polar opposite when it comes to shopping – she just can’t get enough of it. Their attitudes about shopping are as diverse as their taste in clothes. One thing is the same – they both manage to find something at Kohl’s that appeals to each of them. While we didn’t find the exact style of white shirt that fit the dress code and appealed to Miss M, she did find an outfit she liked.
Miss K found a lot of things she wanted to take home. She’s our future model, remember. Unfortunately, because of her size we can’t buy two piece outfits for her. She has the waste size of a toddler but the height of 5th grader. She’s an active child so we’re not too worried but we do monitor her BMI to make sure. As silly as it sounds, she did find a pair of footed pajamas that will be perfect. They’re the base of her upcoming Halloween costume. Last year she was a cheerleader, this year a baby. Who am I to argue… she’ll always be my baby.
I’m not one for shopping but I desperately need new gym clothes. I’m one of those people who is modest and wears multiple layers. Sports bra, fitted tank and exercise shirt. Fitted shorts and regular shorts. Whether I’m doing army crawls or crunches, I never have to worry about anything being seen that I don’t want seen. Except, of course, when something has a hole in it. A quick trip through the sports apparel and I was able to rectify that problem.
Of course, I stocked up on Keurig products at an awesome price! Well, I stocked up on what I could find on the shelf… they were such a hot item that the shelves were pretty bare. Mother Nature may be sending us crazy weather but my Keurig will keep me warm inside.
As a bonus, when I went to check out, they told me about the new rewards program. For every dollar I spend, I earn points that will convert to gift cards. That’s like free cash since I’m shopping with them anyhow. Best part is that it didn’t cost anything to join and I was able to do it right at the register.
We found a lot of great items in the fall collection – and a lot of great prices, too. If you haven’t checked the latest styles, grab the add in your Sunday paper and see what you’re missing. You can also see what they are up to by catching up with them on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram and Pinterest.
Do you enjoy shopping when the seasons change?
