I know some people who wear vintage from head to toe. There’s nothing wrong with that, but I love mixing a touch of vintage with contemporary threads. And that’s exactly what I did last weekend. I’ve become kinda obsessed with Kohl’s since I used a pair of their brocade shorts for my last Today Show appearance. And in particular, I’ve become a fan of the LC Lauren Conrad line. From the jeans to the tops and especially the dresses, the pieces are flirty, sweet and super feminine.

So I was excited when I was sent this Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s dress. It’s A-line {a flattering shape for all sizes} and has adorable cut outs at the top.

I could have added a few edgy accessories to funk the dress up a bit, but I love how sweet and fun it is. A thin belt and sparkly peep toes gave it a few pops of color and I grabbed my vintage wicker purse I recently scored from the Goodwill Outlet.
