Converse Meet Classy #Kohls101

I have this theory that it's always better to overdress than underdress.  Sometimes I get intimidated by the huge amount of people there are in this world, and I feel like standing out in what I wear will maybe help me stand out in someway in the crowds…no one wants to feel like a million in a million, but who doesn't want to feel like 1 in a million?  

I love mixing classy fashions like this dress, with chunky bold necklaces and a pair of red converses.  Creating a "school of rock" look out of something that was intended to be "fancy and classy" ensures that I'll stand out and that no one else will be wearing the same thing.  

I love shopping at Kohls for this type of outfit because they have such a huge selection and so many different brands, which makes it easy to pair different "genres" of clothing together.  For example, I can find a super classy dress (the black and white houndstooth one as shown in these photos!) and a crazy bold chunky black and crystal necklace (Vera Wang from Kohls).  Not possible at other stores but made possible by Kohls (haha!)! 

What do you like to wear to "stand out?"  Let me know in the comments!  Also if you LOVE this outfit as much as I do, I'd love to hear your thoughts! 

Disclosure:  Thanks to Kohls for providing me a gift card to pick out this amazing outfit!


  1. Love how the converse shoes make the outfit stand out! I am a huge fan of black and white dresses! With two kids, I don't get to stand out that much, but I love to find accessories to make my sweaters fancier. jj250@aol.com

  2. The pop of red and the converse shoes are so unexpected, love it! How do I like to stand out? I've always liked to dress just a bit different from everyone else, maybe a piece of something vintage, a skirt where everyone else wears pants...it's fun to be imaginative when working on your wardrobe!

  3. Love the print on this dress, and the red converse just pop with this dress. The necklace is very pretty.

  4. Totally love this dress paired up with the bright red converse. You might as well have your feet comfy and still look good.

  5. I love the dress with your kicks. Its a perfect look for fall

  6. The shoes really add a pop of color!
