Hodge Podge'n it

My blackberry was practically system shut down this morning because of all the sale mail, spring is coming, free shipping, we missed ya emails from every retailer I've ever used my darn credit card at.  Whew. I cannot believe how absolutely gorge this weather is and you can tell EVERYone is getting spring fever....I love it.

That being said, check out my latest grabs.  I must say the Lauren Conrad (LC) line for Kohl's is just fabulous.  I got butterflies, literally, when I saw the lookbook spread that the lovely Obsessionista did the other day.  I headed right over to and picked up each item I liked, that they had left available...This is what I got

Got this white sheath which I'll pair with a nude belt and if I had those CL's that'd be nice too but I don't.  I got the entire second outfit...I love the flowy-ness of that top and if I pair it with black flats and a cardigan I could wear it to work :::hoping the skirt is not hookerishly short::: OR I could pair it with sky high's no cardi for a night on the town

How adorable is that blue dress!? It comes with the belt, yay.  I picked up the top in pic #2 and am hoping its on the longer/baggy side so I can just pair it with leggings

I had humongo grabby hands for the entire first outfit but the jacket wasn't sold online so I just picked up the skirt (which, if you have a good memory will remember me discussing how badly I coveted a scalloped edge skirt a la Carrie Bradshaw-vogue offices-satc the movie) and lastly, I grabbed the boyfriend capris.  I plan to head to an actual Kohl's store in search of that jacket.

Now for the shining moment -- I got ALL of these items above for a measley $157.25 - the entire LC collection was 30-40% off to begin with coupled with my favorite promo site Retail Me Not I got an additional 30% off

I cannot wait to get these items and will review quality, fit, etc. as soon as they arrive.  I'm also waiting for my very cute VS bathing suit to come in (which was backordered until April 19) and will do same upon arrival

I, unfortunately, have NOT made it to the gym the last couple of days.  I planned to do pilates last night but had to go to Lowe's for the hubbs (because, yes he is still working on the bathroom).  I couldn't muster the energy to get up this AM and go and tonight I have school - argh! I'm definitely going to kickboxing tomorrow night however.

My Real Estate Licensing class is over in 2 weeks...thank goodness! I cannot stand that 'teacher' for much longer! And even the 2 days/week is really a huge inconvenience for me.  I give a TON of kudos to working mothers who go to school as well, because that is one hell of feat if you ask me.  Its one thing to work/go to school but to throw a child(ren) in the!

3rd week sans meat and I'm going strong! My cravings for chicken have basically subsided at this point and I've been eating a lot of fish.  

that's all for now. 


  1. Oh fun! I def want to see IRL photos!

  2. WOW!! I am so jealous! I cannot wait to make a run to Kohl's. Please do outfit posts as soon as you can! By the way, thanks for the shout out :)

  3. Definitely! I can't wait either. This is the first time I'm ordering from so I hope their shipping is fast! Ground is free over $75 so we'll see how it goes.

    Thanks for reading, lovelies.

  4. Love, love, love LC's Kohl's collection! Nice picks! I agree with my bff the obessionista...outfit posts, please :-)
