I am participating in an ambassador program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Kohl’s. I receive Kohl’s gift cards and sample pieces to facilitate my posts and as a thank you for participating.
I think this goes without saying but some things.. .are just worth the wait.
Oh, you know, like finding the love of your life, or holding out for the perfect job, and of course taking a delicious bite into that favorite meal you spent all day cooking? Those sorts of things… In today’s case, the long, anticipated wait for the Peter Som Collection to debut at Kohl’s is just one of those things you know was everything we thought it was going to be, and then a little bit more. Just beautiful!
But, then again, what else could you expect when an brilliantly talented designer used these shots he took and published on Instagram as the source of his inspiration? Peter Som was off in a tropical paradise and from this he created a vision that would take the look and feel of the beautiful St. Barth’s and bring it to Kohl’s shoppers for an incredible price. Could we be more grateful? Because, who doesn’t want to feel like they’re living the careful life on an island all summer long? I mean…sign this girl up! With spring in full effect and summer hot in it’s trail, I think it’s time to really get your hot-weather wardrobe stocked up and ready for those lazy days ahead.
And, while I’m sharing a few of Peter Som’s own personal vacation pictures, how about a preview of just one of the many sketches he drew during his design process. I think I speak for most girls out there that a maxi dress is officially a summer staple and when I was scrolling through the sketches looking for ways to share my love for the this brand with readers, I was immediately drawn to this particular dress. I love, LOVE the splash of color and the mix up of lines and patterns from head to toe. It’s such a bright and fun dress that is going to quickly become one of those hot items that everyone seems to want in their own closet.
So, when Thursday rolled on in, I quickly hopped into Kohl’s right after work and was so excited to finally get my little hands on all of these great pieces. The collection is filled, and I mean filled, with things like beautiful white eyelet blouses, colorful rompers, maxi dresses, prints, chino shorts, and stripes (my favorite!) all around. I was sightly overwhelmed in the best possible way and didn’t quite know where to start so I did the first think that came to my mind…try it ALL ON.
I was immediately drawn to this striped tee for a few reasons. If you’ve been following along with me you’ll already know that I absolutely adore stripes in the summer. I’m so inspired by this timeless, nautical print and I literally want to wear it each and every day. This particular tee was a little extra special because it has a graphic print on the front that is neither loud or something that might embarrass your kiddos while wearing it. Win all around! It’s simple, yet sweet enough to take a basic striped tee and make it a little extra special. I loved pairing this tee with a pair of black shorts and a my favorite nude wedges to create a fun outfit for either date night or a night with my best girls. Cute and comfortable? Doesn’t get much better…
Now, believe me when I tell you that this dress is officially one of my new favorites and, ladies, I’m quite particular when it comes to assigning that claim to something I’m sharing with others. Whew, this dress is so flattering! I am convinced the length of the sleeves here should be a standard requirement for all designers, effective immediately. This ponte knit is extremely soft and the pin tucks around the waist give you just a little extra flare in your dress. I love all my fit and flare dresses but this one in particular has just a hint of extra fabric to give you a little more sway in your walk. I absolutely love this dress and I can promise you would feel the same.
While I kept this look quite casual, you could absolutely toss on a pair of flats and grab your favorite tote for a day of lunch dates, play dates, or errands. On the flip side, if you’re looking to dress it up a bit, grab your favorite heels (try a pop of color!) and a chain strap bag and you’re ready for a night out on the town. Versatility is key here and this dress didn’t come up short, at all! It’s timeless and the options to style will surely make you feel like your money was well spent.
Peter Som for Kohl’s Favorites for Summer
Now that I shared with you TWO of my “must haves” from the Pete Som Collection that exclusively offered at Kohl’s, you have to take a look down below to see all of my other favorites that are now available online AND in the stores! Seriously, don’t wait! There are so many summer-ready options that your closet will thank you for later!
First up? White on white. See also, your new summer uniform. Beat the heat and still look fab in this oh-so-hot eyelet blouse. Oh my gosh, I can’t get enough eyelet this year and I’m fairly certain I’ll be bringing this beauty home with me as well.
This romper is your answer to avoiding a dress but still having the added bonus of being dressed and ready to go after one little step. I adore rompers and the bright colors on this pretty little number are screaming summer! Oh, I love! Dress this up with a neutral pair of heels or down with a pair of casually cool flats. No matter what your plans call for that day, this outfit right here is just what you were looking for…
I think once I was introduced to the Peter Som collection and saw the preview of this dress, I knew I had to be a part of this promotion. I just love the colors, the design, the length…the everything. I wouldn’t wait too long for this maxi dress to find it’s rightful place in your closet! I would easily toss it on with my favorite sandals and a denim jacket to complete the look. You’re bound to be on the receiving end of some much deserved compliments when you take this dress out for the first time!
So, ladies. I hope you’re feeling as inspired as I am after being able to try on all of these amazing pieces that Peter Som created for you at prices that can’t beat. I just love how Kohl’s has found a way to offer it’s shoppers an easy and affordable way to wear designer clothes from some truly talented artists. Peter Som hit the nail on the head when it comes to offering a beautifully designed collection of summer clothes that will make you look and feel great, inside and out.
Don’t forget to share with Kate and I any of the Peter Som pieces that you took home with you! We would love to hear what you couldn’t resist!
