~I participated in an Ambassador program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Kohl’s. I received Kohl’s gift cards and sample pieces to facilitate my posts and as a thank you for participating.~
Before beginning the adventure of being a Kohl’s Spring Fashion Ambassador, I had a very sad wardrobe. I never realized the impact it made on my mood since I’d had those clothes for years (and years and years). Just like most all Moms, I always put everyone else’s needs before my own and that included clothes. Every so often I’d sneak out to Kohl’s and pick up something for me, but my wardrobe remained a pile of ill fitting, worn through and unraveling attire. This experience has taught me two things.
- Your wardrobe effects your mood.
- Changing your style can change your mood.
Shopping the Peter Som Collection for DesigNation really put this to heart. There were a few pieces I was kind of timid to try, but afterward realized how fun and exciting they were! Shopping the collection pushed me out of my style box to experience different patterns and colors – like more Pink!
I had went shopping the full Peter Som Collection for DesigNation at Kohl’s (which is for a limited time!) and chose a few tops that were very “me”. Unfortunately, they didn’t have many other things in my size because they were selling really fast. So I do recommend skipping on over to Kohl’s if a piece catches your eye! The first piece that I chose was the Marled Tape Yarn Sweater.
I know what you are thinking, a sweater in the Spring! The Tape Yarn style of the sweater is ideal for warmer temps because it has a very airy texture with tightly woven fabric. Since the Peter Som Collection is inspired by the beauty of St. Barth’s, it doesn’t surprise me to have a sweater since temperatures can be pretty mild and breezy by the waterside. This is the perfect top for dressing up or casual as well! You can pair it with a skirt or cuffed jeans, or even wear it over a matching dress!
The other top I had picked out was the “Jàdorable” Striped Tee. This is a very laid back and cute top that works perfectly with cuffed jeans, shorts or skirts! You can pair it with heels, boots or flats with any of them and it would work. A very versatile top in a super soft cotton blend that gives a little romance to your wardrobe.
The great thing about the Peter Som Collection is that the soft elegant fabrics with the bold statement patterns really bring out your confidence. My mood has seriously shifted while being out from feeling like the frumpy Mom, to feeling more confident. I stand straighter, I feel more feminine and in control. Changing my style up from just dark attire (blacks, grays) to adding touches of color, statement necklaces and more feminine cut clothing has made me feel – lighter and has gotten me out of the habit of always worrying about how I must look like a crazy person.
It’s definitely time for you to change up your wardrobe this Spring and try a new style! Peter Som’s has many exciting pieces in the collection that pair up great with what you already have in your wardrobe. You don’t have to change everything at one time, just try piece by piece until you have a happier wardrobe and a happier you.
