Kohl's Back to School Challenge #FINDYOURYES - Part III

*Post is sponsored by Kohl's and they have so kindly provided me with Kohl's gifts, however, all opinions are completely my own.*

This week I'm happy to be showing you all the last part of the three back-to-school posts, where I create three super cute outfits for under $100! Seems impossible I know, because I was so unsure of how I was about to put together three outfits for $100 when I went to my local Kohl's, and when I got to the register it rung up to being $110. The woman at the register told me to use this coupon on retailmenot, which brought it down to $88! On top of that, I also got $10 in Kohl's Cash which was like I saved even more! 

This challenge was a little tricky for me as not all of the pieces in the outfits are from Kohls, and some of them (the two pairs of shoes) were purchased for my second challenge. Each of these outfits are under $100, but the purchase I made for the actual outfits came out to being $88, and for that I got that super cute Brooklyn tee, the Pink Floyd tee (if you love band tees like I do always remember to check out the guys section!), both of the skirts, and the plaid tunic. Here's more photos from all of the outfits, and the prices from them all!

Wearing: Kohl's "Brooklyn" Tee, Kohl's gray quilted-look skater skirt, Kohl's leopard print slip-on sneakers, Nila Anthony bag, ZeroUV sunglasses. 

A little about the outfit: Since this is still a back-to-school challenge, I'm still putting together outfits that I would wear to school. I was feeling an urban-girly vibe with this outfit, and while it is cute, it's also super comfy and a simple outfit as well which makes it perfect for school. I'm obsessed with cute graphic tees lately so I couldn't pass up this simple little "Brooklyn" tee...I love the lettering and it can be paired with anything!

Cost of outfit:


TOTAL: $64.97

Wearing: Kohl's tunic, Kohl's leggings, vintage Dooney & Bourke bag, thrifted boots, Target thigh-high socks.

A little about the outfit: I will admit that I went out and took photos of this outfit without actually wearing it yet, because it's still so hot still. When I bought this tunic I thought it was going to fit longer than it does, and I was originally wanting to wear it as a shirt dress. But, I just paired this light and comfy pair of workout leggings with it (as a substitute for black jeans) and I layered some thigh-high socks over and wore my boots. I definitely will be wearing it because it's such an adorable outfit in my opinion, and it's really making me wish fall weather was here already. After I took these photos, I went straight to get me a pumpkin (iced) coffee! 

Cost of outfit:


TOTAL: $34.98

Wearing: Kohl's Pink Floyd graphic tee, Kohl's skater skirt, thrifted Ralph Lauren denim shirt, Kohl's cut-out booties, Kohl's floral beanie (no longer available).

A little about the outfit: For this outfit, I had to get me another skater skirt from Kohl's, when I went in the store I saw so many cute fall skater skirts...they'll be so perfect for fall layering! I picked up this one along with the gray quilted-looking skirt in the first outfit, and I think I'll go back and get more, because they really had such a nice variety and they were all very inexpensive! These skirts are serious staple wardrobe pieces for me, I just hate wearing shorts and pants most of the time and don't always wanna wear a dress, so these are perfect! With this skirt I originally grabbed a loose fitting black tank top, but then I thought to look in the guys section, as I love me a good band tee. They had so many to pick from and all good shirts too, it was hard to decide! They had a Guns 'n' Roses shirt that I really liked but only in L and XL so I went with this Pink Floyd tee, I've been meaning to get a Pink Floyd tee lately anyways and I was really sold on this unique teal color, and so I decided to pair a more grungy look around it! 

Cost of outfit:


TOTAL: $109.97

This one was a bit of a "splurge" since it went outside the $100 limit, but Kohl's has tons of coupons all the time, so apply one of those and it'll definitely knock down that price like it did for me the other day. $110 down to $88? Sounds good to me!

While each of these outfits are each about $100, like I said the pieces I bought for the outfits themselves all came in at under $100. The shoes and accessories I looked at as extras...and of course not all of the items were from Kohl's. Through this style challenge I was really surprised, and I'll be honest, I'm a new-found lover of Kohl's! I've always thought it was a nice store with lovely clothing, but for some reason always got the vibe it was expensive in there, but now I'm finding I was totally wrong! They have such a large variety of cute clothes for junior girls and women (and of course men as well), and no matter what your style is, you're sure to find something you like. I shopped online for the last challenge but for this one I went in store, and had a much better experience, only because I saw many more things that I might've accidentally looked over on the website! Anyways, hoped you all enjoyed these style challenges! I sure had a lot of fun doing them and am so excited about my lovely new pieces that I'll be wearing all season long! Thanks for reading!
