Derek Lam For Design Nation Kohl's

Derek Lam

Design Nation for Kohl's

You know me! SikGlam Never misses a Design Nation Launch. I had been patiently waiting for this one, since the Narciso Rodriguez line which was inspired by Istanbul. The Derek Lam line was inspired by Rio De Janeiro. I thought this was just too perfect, since I am going on a tropical vacation soon and will be needing clothes for it. This shopping trip really got me excited for my trip! When I think of Rio, I think of a tropical warm place with an ocean breeze, and that's just the kind of place that I am going too.

So here is what I bought:

Striped Sheath Dress

Looks MUCH better on!

I had to get this dress! Sheath Dresses are probably one of most favorite types of dresses. This dress will be perfect for the warm weather. It can be dressed up on down depending on how you accessorize it.

Striped ShirtDress

Once Again, Looks MUCH better on.

I had to have this shirt dress. The colors seemed so tropical to me. You can roll up the sleeves and it can  be worn it so many different ways. You can wear it as a dress, opened up over a tank top and jean shorts, or as a cover-up to the matching bikini.

Underwire Midkini Swim Top

I absolutely adore this print!

This Swim Top is going to be amazing on my trip. Not only will I be able to wear it as a swim top, but I will be able to wear it as a top with shorts. It could also be worn underneath a see through blouse. There are so many possibilities.

Ruched Scoop Swim Bottoms

This swim bottoms provide just the right amount of coverage.

Floral Tunic Dress

This Print is going to Look Amazing
with a Tan!

This Tunic Dress was another great find for my trip, since it can be worn in so many ways. I can wear it as a day or night dress, as a beach cover-up, or casual by pairing it with leggings.

Chambray Jumper Dress

I love that is has Pockets!

This will be perfect for hot island and summer days. I love how it is form fitting and very flattering to the figure. This jumper dress is a perfect no brainer for the summer, when you want to look cute and throw something on fast.

Splatter Peplum Top and Pieced Crop Pants in NightShade

I am not positive if I would wear the two of these together. I would probably wear them separate. They are different prints within the same color scheme, so I paired them together to see how it would look. But I think I would wear them separately after seeing them together.

Chambray Capris

I am not really into capris, I really never have been. But I just thought these would be so perfect for my trip. I could wear them with a simple white tank top and still appear pulled together.

Striped Shorts

These shorts are so soft, comfortable and stylish at the same time. Stripes are so spot on for the spring/summer that I could not pass them up. They will be so easy to pull on and wear to the beach.

These are the last few items that I got while I was at Kohls, that I thought I would share with you. I will most likely be bringing them on my trip and wearing them a lot this summer.

Jennifer Lopes Solid Trouser Shorts

I got these because, who doesn't love a pair of short black comfy shorts.

Jennifer Lopez Lace Babydoll Dress

The Color is Vapor Blue

This Dress will be amazing on hot days. It can also be worn over leggings or ankle jeans with a blazer.

LC Lauren Conrad Leggings

Love the Floral Prints!

I think I buy a pair of leggings every time I shop. I think I have a pair in every shade, texture, and print you could imagine. I could not resist theses (even though I already have floral) because they are so soft and they are long!! I have long legs and sometimes its hard to find long leggings. So I get them when I can.

Final Thoughts:

I am very happy and feel very blessed that I got to purchase Derek Lam for Design Nation at Kohl's today. It worked out so perfectly with the way the line was designed and the timing of my trip. I also loved how the line was designed based on a city that is both modern and timeless, two things that I look for in clothes. I can't wait to wear them on my trip, this summer, and maybe even sooner if the weather ever warms up!
