In just four days I leave the big city behind to start my new life in San Diego. While there are many things I'm going to miss about New York, I must confess that one thing I'm excited to acquire is some of my favorite shopping.
I know, I know, some of the world's best shopping is in the Big Apple, but I can hardly afford to window shop at some of the city's swankier boutiques and designer outposts. But what I do love in more suburban areas than my current home, is the accessibility of stores where designers house some of their more affordable items.
Take for example, Kohls. I remember thinking as a tween that Kohls was just a giant maze my mom used to drag me around in middle school. But it turns out my savvy shopping momma was onto something. Kohls is now one of my favorite stops for everything from fashion and shoes to home decor. With brands like Simply Vera by Vera Wang, ELLE (Elle MacPherson), LC by Lauren Conrad, and more, they are making fashion affordable.
Below are some of my current top picks at the store and believe it or not, everything you see below is under $45! A major bonus of Kohls is that they almost always have coupon codes for in-store and online shopping (sign up for their email newsletter for the best deals) to save you even more. If you don't live near a Kohls, fear not, use the coupon code SHIPFREE to get free shipping no matter where you're located.
