Kohl's Jennifer Lopez



Ikat dress and  Fringe earrings from Jennifer Lopez x Kohls, Bag: Halston, Shoes: Valentino

This gorgeous dress is from the Jennifer Lopez collection at Kohl’s.

How do I love thee, J Lo? Let me count the ways. First, her music–Get Right is epic. Second, her style: this princess moment made the Oscars for me. Next, her movies. THE WEDDING PLANNER is one my favorite flicks and probably one of the best romantic comedies ever made. She’s so funny and genuine in it; I like to think that’s closest to who she is on the inside. She’s a mamá to twins. She’s a stellar businesswoman. She played a major role in making the booty so popular.

And then there’s this dress.

I don’t normally wear blue, but I think I’m in love with powder blue now. When I slipped into it I thought: Whoa, this makes me look curvier than I usually feel. [And I’m not even wearing shapewear under this.] But of course it would: a curve-conscious collection is what I’d expect from Lopez. This dress feels like a night of dancing in Miami. That’s exactly where I want to be in it. Hint, hint to my husband. By the way, there’s also a PERFECT pink and gold knit set in straight size that fit me and is worth checking out if you’re about a size 16.

This ikat print is so bold, I think going light on the accessories makes you stand out. I chose long, fringe earrings, my gold leather clutch, and my favorite heels. The price point for this dress is incredible too, on sale for about $30, which I mention because like J. Lo, I’m real.

Our Palm Springs Getaway + Travel Tips

For my birthday this year, my husband surprised me with a weekend trip to Palm Springs, Calif. We stayed at Korakia Pensione, the most low-key-luxurious place I know. John knows me well, because I love the desert and prefer my getaways relaxed and romantic. Talk about feeling transported. I felt like I was in a different world, even though…

Falling In Love Over and Over Again

Like many women, my girlhood views of love were heavily impacted by the final scene in Cinderella when the happy couple rides off in a carriage and you read that they lived happily ever after. This became my barometer for love—an incessant and passionate happiness shared with a charming prince. I think I know some…

Valentine’s Day Outfit: Red and Pink

Feature sponsored by MYNT 1792. All styling and opinions my own. Love is the air. I know red and pink are a pretty obvious color combo for Valentine’s Day, but an unexpected shape or romantic texture makes your look more stylish than sweet.
