Off the Rack: LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's 'Bright Escape' Collection

While shopping the year-end sale at Kohl's last week, I couldn't help but notice a new installment of spring apparel from the LC Lauren Conrad collection. No really, you couldn't miss it - the colors were literally popping off the racks! And to be honest, it was almost an insult considering the freezing temperatures we've been having lately. But who could hold a grudge against those bright blues, cheerful yellows and vibrant mango hues? Floral denim begged to be paired with breezy blouses while a floral blazer and lightwashed denim moto jacket made my puffy coat feel oppressive. If you could use a little "bright escape," head to your local Kohl's or to check out this fun little capsule. Prices ranged from $25-$47 on sale. See anything you like?

Hi love your blog! I was wondering if you have the Lauren Conrad velvet tuxedo blazer in your currently obsessed. I'm thinking of ordring it online and I'm on the fence!

@Amanda - I do own a velvet LC tuxedo blazer but I'm not sure it's the one that's on the Kohl's website. For what I paid ($11.40), I love it! (glimpse it here: It's not particularly warm or structured but it's flattering, soft and not too dressy so you can wear it with a lot of things from t-shirt and jeans to a dress. Hope this helps.

I have my eye on the teal dress and am trying to resist hitting buy online without first trying it on. I always have trouble finding my size in the store though.
