Now that the warm weather is just about here, I realized that it’s time to go summer clothes shopping with my daughter. Sometimes it’s an experience I dread because she is so opinionated about clothes and she’s only 5!!!! I have found that if you go to the right store the experience can be fun and easy. There are a handful of stores that we like shopping at, Kohl’s being one of them. That said I was ecstatic when they provided me with a gift card to shop for some new summer girls clothing.
I also received coupon via email for their Memorial Day weekend sale, so we headed to our local Kohl’s in Paramus, NJ for a fun day of shopping! The kids department had some beautiful clothing for girls. It started to get a little disorganized quickly because my daughter was just pulling things off the shelves and grabbing dresses from the racks. Don’t get me wrong she has good taste for a little girl. She picked out some adorable dresses like this Watercolor Maxi Dress and Floral Maxi Sundress from Chaps, both of which I would wear. I really do wish the watercolor striped dress came in my size. The colors of the dress are great-pink, orange, purple, red, emerald green, and magenta. I also love the bottom ruffle and the rope tie strap.
Next came the battle of the swimsuit, although it’s much easier for my daughter to find a swimsuit than me (LOL). I was impressed that they sell swimsuit sets that not only include the top and bottom but also a cover-up skirt as well as a pair of goggles. All of these pieces for only $20.99! Not bad at all. They are available in some lovely prints such as this Floral Tankini set and this Floral/Striped Tankini set. Kohl’s also has some cute one-piece swimsuits in prints, solids as well as licensed characters such as Minnie Mouse, Disney Princess, My Little Pony, and Hello Kitty.
Now it was time to pick out some everyday, casual clothing such as tops and shorts. There was no shortage of cute tops for little girls. Kohl’s has tons of fun graphic tees and tanks with all sorts of feminine images from mermaids, hearts, animals to beach scenes. As far as bottoms, they have a great selection of shorts, bike shorts, skirts and skorts. Kohl’s has two exclusive lines, Jumping Beans and SONOMA life + style, which makes sopping easier for parents because the pieces all mix and match. For instance, this Tropical Tee and Island Twill Chino short from SONOMA life + style look stylish together and they both are interchangeable with this cute Heart & Palm Tree shirt and Aqua Ruffled French Terry shorts we bought from Jumping Beans. Another great staple item for the summer are these awesome Bike Shorts from Jumping Beans. They fit great and my daughter said they are very comfortable. You can put so many different tops with them too!
Since my daughter picked out so much pink (her fave color), we couldn’t walk out without getting something to top off all her new outfits. That would be these super cool Monster High Glitter Wedge Flip-Flops. The flip-flops feature three of Monster High’s best ghoulfriends- Draculaura, Frankie and Clawdeen. The strap is pink glitter so they basically go with just about everything we bought. My daughter has been dying for a pair of shoes with some sort of heel and these are perfect for her.
All in all, our shopping experience at Kohl’s was a positive one. I really liked that the clothes at Kohl's were all age-appropriate for little girls. We found many wonderful and beautiful items that fit great and will surely get my little girl through the summer. If you still have to shop for summer clothes or need to pick up some staples head to Kohl’s or if you’re strapped for time you can shop 24/7 at www.kohls.com.
