I mentioned a few weeks back that a dress had caught my eye at Kohls recently. It was a gorgeous mix of blues and purples and it reminded me of a painting my grandparents used to have hanging in their home when I was a kid. The price wasn’t exactly in my budget at the time I saw it (I’m always waiting on the best Kohls deal!) and it wasn’t long until it a) went on sale, b) I had a 30% coupon, and c) I had Kohls Cash to spend. I love when those all line up! Instead of paying $68 for this floral handkerchief dress, I got it for just $35!


With a print as bold as this it can be hard to initially imagine being able to style it in different ways other than just paired with a simple pair heels but I’m always up for a challenge! Let’s see if we can style this floral handkerchief dress in five different ways!

My first thought was that this would be a great dress for an evening wedding. My only problem now is that I have no more weddings to attend this summer and no invites yet for the fall. Someone, invite me to your wedding! (It would be a great excuse to buy these shoes!)

This hem might seem a little too flirty for work but paired with a navy cardigan and nude accessories the look works perfectly!

A sleeveless dress doesn’t have to be stored in the fall! Grab your favorite jacket and voila! I love the idea of mixing tougher leather pieces with this floral print.

Next, I love pulling out the lighter blues in the dress with this fun blazer. Gold accessories and navy heels add to the outfit without competing for the spotlight!
