My Kohl's Grand Opening Sale Haul

Kohl's Haul

Yesterday I headed to my local Kohl's store to shop their Grand Opening Sale which is going on now through Sunday March 17th. Do not miss this sale! I tweeted my favorite finds as I shopped and shared two spring outfits, then purchased the items that got the most "likes" from readers - because honestly I loved both looks and couldn't decide which to go with! Thanks to everyone who commented, you guys are seriously the sweetest and you made this mama-to-be feel like a million bucks.

Kohl's haul

So here's what I got: A coral red blazer ($45.50, saved $24.50), lace stripe white tee ($23.40, saved $12.60), polka dot skinny jeans ($35.10, saved $18.90), and bow ring ($9.60, saved $6.40, similar ring here) - all from the LC Lauren Conrad collection - plus an Apt. 9 bangle ($12, saved $12).

Everything paired perfectly with my favorite ankle boots, the "Kinley," which I bought on clearance at Target for $10.48. It's not sandal season yet, but these ankle boots are perfect for that spring transition weather. So comfy and they go with everything! Seriously love.

Kohl's Haul

I also couldn't help but check out the home decor at Kohl's, which is also on major sale, and picked up a chevron bath rug (in-store only), chevron hand towel, chevron shower curtain (in-store only) and chevron straw baskets! OMG chevron overload. I could not resist. I wish I was one of those sophisticated people who decorate everything in all white but I don't have that kind of restraint. I love color and fun prints that make me smile. My new bathroom accessories are definitely doing that.

Chevron rugs on the cheap!

On top of the sale prices, I used a 15% off coupon which I received in the mail (since I have a Kohl's charge) and the cashier was sweet and gave me 20% off instead (must be the pregnant lady discount). I also got $20 back in Kohl's cash. Between the home decor and clothing items I purchased, I saved $162.72.

Thanks to Kohl's for giving me a $100 gift card to shop this sale, I still can't believe the opportunities this blog has given me - I know it's just a gift card but having grown up without a lot of cash, it means so much more. I feel like a kid in a candy store each time.

And stay tuned, because I'll be giving away another $100 gift card to one lucky reader to help you shop the spring deals at Kohl's!!

I'm not really a huge fan of Kohl's (maybe it's just the ones around where I live, but I can never find what I'm looking for, and they're always such a mess), but your Instagrams and posts always make me want to go there! I was actually eyeing that bathroom set online, so I might have to check it out in person. Also, that bow ring is so adorable!

They JUST recently renovated the dressing rooms at mine - huge improvement - but they're still usually overflowing with clothes that haven't been put back on the rack. Baby steps...

Not only do I love both these outfits on you (& you already had me running to the store to snag a chevron rug), but I love how humble & appreciative you have remained as your site has really sets a great example for us newer bloggers. We should be grateful in everything! :-)

You look soooooooo cute in the first outfit! Seriously adorable! LOL on the pregnant lady discount ;-). That ring is also so wonderful. Congrats on the success of this blog (new layout? header? i like) and being able to receive gift cards and sponsorship. I know what you mean about not growing up with much, so every little gift is awesome these days. Again, great outfit choice!

Hi Dianna ~ I rarely shop Kohl's either, however, it is refreshing to read your blog on your shopping trip. you are very honest in your opinions, that is why you will last for a lot longer than others. The fashion world and retail in general are not known for their kindness of heart!!

So glad you got the red blazer and polka dot skinnies! I've been eyeing that pair for awhile (mainly have just been waiting to get another coupon from them before grabbing) and they look fantastic on you! Great finds. I'm definitely going to stalk that bow ring now. Maybe I can snag it during one of their late specials tonight... :-)

You are so cute! How do you fit into those jeans with your bump?!? Wish I had your style when I was preggers.. Just wore black stretchy things... Boring. Anyway, love the red blazer outfit!
