Kohl’s Chaps Capris and A Giveaway

April 5, 2011


"Kohls Chaps Capris"
"Kohls Chaps Capris"


(Turban and Blouse – Thrifted, Jacket – Elsewhere Vintage, Chaps Capris – Kohl’s, Shades – Urban Outfitters, Shoes – Steve Madden)

I absolutely love mixing prints… so when I was asked to be part of Kohl’s Chaps Capri campaign .. I was instantly drawn to a black and white checkered pair.

The Chaps Capri is essential and classic for spring, and I loved the idea of styling them up with bold pops of color and prints.

All styled up.. they were ready for a day down by the bay.. walking cobblestone streets, sipping coffee with my man and watching the sailboats glide by.. spring day perfection!

Now for some fun..

Kohl‘s is gifting two of my readers with $125 gift cards.. all you have to do is leave a comment below..

something you want to see in the future.. a question for me.. or a little blurb of happiness!

Contest ends Friday, April 8th at 3 PM EST

    How long does it take you to pick out your outfits for a post? Do you mainly get inspired looking through your closet or before you even get in there?

    • April 5, 2011 7:44 am

      It is different everyday.. sometimes 2 minutes sometimes 30 minutes. Also, inspiration is different everyday.. I might go in my closet and be inspired by a certain piece or an image I saw earlier or a color or a movie.. it is always different.

    I just recently discovered your blog and have since been eager to explore uncharted fashion territory. My wardrobe has remained stagnant for years with nothing but blacks, whites and browns filling my closet. Just two of your posts in and I was dying to own prints and colors galore! Thank you for your daily doses of inspiration!

  12. April 5, 2011 6:29 am

    brilliant. you’ve managed to make a traditional pair of check capri’s beautifully chic and eclectic. definitely loving the frequency of your trend and inspiration posts lately!

    I want to see more of that jacket!!!

    I always love your pattern mixing – really inspiring to just go for it! Do you have any suggestions on where to get scarves to wear in your hair – are vintage/thrift shopps the best place for that?

    • April 5, 2011 7:42 am

      Yes.. vintage and thrift always have a great collection of scarves in all shapes, lengths and sizes.

    Loving you’re twist on the preppy cropped trouser look. I heart mixing prints! And you do it oh so well.

    Question – Current fav. clothing item, shoe & bag in you’re spring closet?

    Mine is heavenly PJ style all over floral print palazzo pants (similar to yours a few posts back might I add), a new MJ satchel type bag I picked up in Hong Kong, all grainy, butter soft leather and metal trims and STILL my black lace up clog boots. Spring is finally starting to come to London but my toes are staying firmly under wraps for now but still looking divine enclosed in my wooden soled beauties!

    Thanks for the always fresh and inspiring daily updates.

    I love the patterns of the outfit! So very special. I am really loving cropped pants for spring, they are perfect for showing off the fancy shoes..and I’m a shoe girl!

  19. April 5, 2011 6:45 am

    The power of the flower. And gorgeous flowers they are. That blouse looks amazing, love the color and the big print. The white flower on your shoulder looks so interesting. big bold and beautiful. Love the Capri pants, I look like an awkward gnome if I wear a pair of pants like that. You are so fabulous with shoes. you have the best summer shoes collection I have ever seen. They always match perfectly with your outfit

    I love the question about how long it takes you to put together an outfit.
    Your outfits always look so effortlessly chic!

    • April 5, 2011 7:40 am

      It depends on the day.. it could take me a 2 minutes.. or 30 minutes.. if I am having on of those frazzled mornings.

  23. April 5, 2011 6:50 am

    Wow, you’ve actually made me want a pair of gingham capris! They look amazing on you!

    How much of your wardrobe do you purchase “new” and how much of it is second-hand (thrift or vintage)?

    • April 5, 2011 7:39 am

      Honestly, my wardrobe is probably 80% vintage/resale/thrifted and 20% new.

  24. April 5, 2011 6:50 am

    Ob-sessed with this look… it has my mind racing with ideas of how to style a similar outfit. I am now on the hunt for those capris or a similar pair via a thrift store. You style everything to perfection.🙂

    I would love to see more of your thrifting excursions… they are so much fun to read because it’s what I do all the time!!

    Please enter me in this great giveaway!

  32. April 5, 2011 6:57 am

  36. April 5, 2011 7:03 am

    P.S. I love Kohl’s! I would definitely put this to good use. I have a question. What is your full time job? Blogging? Or other things? I feel like you have an interesting answer. And maybe you have answered it before, but I am somewhat new here.

    Thank you for offering a great blog to keep me ever inspired. I enjoy your variety especially most recent posts like your bedroom shots, closet shots and the documentation of your thrift store trip.

    It is helpful to see how another person takes an interesting item from a charity rack and integrates it into their wardrobe.

    Personally I am hanging out to try a turban…

    You inspire me with all of your pattern mixing, your outfit looks cohesive and unique! I’m crossing my fingers that I am chosen for the Kohl’s giveaway- they have some great options for curvy ladies like myself, and I could use some cheddar to get my spring/summer wardrobe off and running. Per usual, I’m short on cash but filled with ideas. Thanks for being brave and putting your style out there for all of us in the blogosphere to enjoy. xoxo.

  49. April 5, 2011 7:47 am

    I truly wish I had the art of pattern mixing like you do. Your outfits inspire me to not always play it safe! Because of you I’m also on the lookout for turbans, I love the added touch of drama they provide.

    Would love it if you would check out my online consignment store called octobermoonboutique.com, you might find something you like there!

    As always a stunning outfit. You definitely know how to mix and match your prints. So funny I just scored a PJ pants at a thrift store similar to the one you were sporting yesterday. You definitely inspire my style a lot. Unfortunalety you sometimes get strange looks in Germany for wearing an up-to-date outfit but that doesn’t stop me from escaping the grey and black of the masses.

    Sipping coffee from my lipstick stained mug in my polka dot blouse, my morning is not yet complete without a cheerful reminder that there are others out there that have fun with what they wear.
    Your blog is an inspiration both in outfits and in courage to push the limits, and truly express who you are through quirky clothing.
    The only thing I wish your blog had more of was online shopping guides. I live in Canada, so the stores you go to, I do not have access to. I would love it if you were to be review online vintage shops so that I too can be apart of the B Jones fashion experience.
    Continue a glimmer of shimmer in this famine of sparkle!

    P.S. Love mixing prints too:)

  65. April 5, 2011 8:16 am

    I love the feature you do on thrift shopping. It totally inspired me to head to my local Savers and I got a couple of cool pieces. I would love to know how you decide what will work in your wardrobe and what is too “fuddy duddy” and you just pass it up. I found some cool pieces but I couldn’t imagine how to make them look cool.

    Love your blog!

    First of all-I love your style-it’s so varied, yet so clearly you. It’s pushing me to find my own signature style and then push the boundaries. I’ve also gone shopping at vintage and thrift stores and actually found things that I love and have incorporated into my closet. I’d be interested in seeing something like a vintage/thrift problem solving post-like, how much can you do if you find something you love, but it’s stained somewhere. Or what’s the best way to get rid of that lingering thrift store smell? What are things that can easily be fixed with a good tailor? Also, will the Stylit ever be available to purchase again? Thanks for the inspiration!

  94. April 5, 2011 9:36 am

    The pattern is so cute and I love how you’ve styled them! Fun!

  95. April 5, 2011 9:41 am

    As for what I would like to see next, I’d say.. in addition to something Elizabeth Taylor-inspired, I’d like to see maybe.. well, it’d be fun to see you try out a Gyaru look (mode gyaru perhaps?), but yes I know it’s most probably not your thing, but yeah that’s just me. Would be wild though!

    Personally ( I have been following your blog for about 6 months or so) I would love to see a cocktail or black tie look …like “going to a gala or fancy wedding look”. I have never seen anything that dressy featured before…and would LOVE to see your fabulous take on formal wear.

    had not previously given much thought to kohl’s, but have recently been stopping in every few weeks or so on my way home from work. i’ve found some really great items! i’ve been especially taken with the vera wang (LOVE the tights!) and lauren conrad collections.

    have just begun following your blog, but would love to see some tutorials and/or tips on how to repurpose items that one might have in their closet that seem to have lost their relevance… like ways to dress up a plain summer dress or new ways to use accessories or something? or maybe even simple tweaks to plain items to make them more stylish?

    Desiderata
    by Max Ehrmann

    Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection.
    Neither be cynical about love; for on the face of all aridity
    and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass,
    Take kindly to counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering
    the things of youth.
    Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune,
    But do not distress yourself with imaginings, many fears are
    born of fatigue and loneliness.
    Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
    You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees or stars;
    you have a right to be here.
    And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is
    unfolding as it should.
    Therefore, be at peace with
    God, whatever you conceive him to be,
    And whatever your labours and aspirations in the noisy confusion of life,
    keep peace with your soul.
    With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams
    It is still a beautiful world.
    Be cheerful, strive to be happy.

    B.Jones, I am so excited that Kohl’s is going to get advice from you on how to style their Chap’s ads. I used to work there and they definately need help appealing to those whoa ren’t 60 as far as that brand is concerned. i also can’t wait for that “your cheapest accessory” with that braid poof!

  211. April 5, 2011 10:27 pm

    wow! perfect mix of prints and thrifted and new! love the turban against your haircolor it is really pretty!! something i would like to see in the future is my shop to open up one day! a question for you is how many hours do you spend blogging per week? and a little blurb of happiness tonight is sweatpants, popcorn, and lost with my puppy and guy!

    Great giveaway…thanks! I love all of your outfits, even the ones that i would never have the nerve to wear myself. You definitely inspire me to create a style that’s my own and I always look forward to reading your blog to see what new inspirations you’ve come up with!

    When love beckons to you, follow him,
    Though his ways are hard and steep.
    And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
    Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
    And when he speaks to you believe in him,
    Though his voice may shatter your dreams
    as the north wind lays waste the garden.

    For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you.
    Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.
    Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,
    So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.

    …one of my favorite quotes from Kahlil Gibran’s the Prophet. Wanted to share a little beautiful passage on love!

    Hope you’re going well B.Jones! Send a little sunshine to Boston, ok? 🙂

    Your outfits make me think about clothes differently. I love to see what you put together.

  225. April 6, 2011 6:28 am

    Absolutely love this combination! Most of us would shy away from wearing a print like that since we think it should only go with a solid color top. But I love how you added the floral print blouse! Those shoes look very comfortable, are they?

    love that spring is back and we can finally break out some more color and capris! they look great

  230. April 6, 2011 8:19 am

    You always inspire me to take more chances and walk out of the house in something that feels a little bit crazy.

    I adore capris! They’re perfect for warm weather while managing to leave something to the imagination. I hope to pick up a few pairs for weekend bike rides around the city.

    It’s seasonal items like these that make it easier to pack away all my lovely sweaters and winter coats. It’s going to be a wonderful spring!🙂

    I love the outfit, thanks for the inspiration.

  233. April 6, 2011 9:47 am

    Yay! Sign me up! I love Kohl’s! The best part of this post is the I’ve held on to a pair of capri’s that look EXACTLY like this for the last 6-7 years, knowing I wanted to wear them again. I just couldn’t figure out how to style them and make them modern. THANK YOU!!

  234. April 6, 2011 10:01 am

    You styled this perfectly, but I wouldn’t expect anything other than that from you.🙂
    I recently tried on a similar pair of pants at J. Crew and they were all kinds of not good. I think the length of these pants (and how you styled it) made the print less picnic table and more pulled together.

    This is a great giveaway. I would definitely put it to good use, especially in the Vera Wang and Lauren Conrad sections.

    The fact that it is nearing the time that I would be ABLE to wear capris is a blurb of happiness for me.🙂 The fact that you styled up these adorable black and white gingham pair always makes me happy. It doesn’t get more classic than this!

    Mmm a new spring wardrobe is just what I need to kick off life after graduation, my fingers are crossed🙂 Although I will certainly settle for the weather finally drifting into warm breezes instead of hale ridden gusts so send some of your weather this way, it looks beautiful over there from your pictures!

    I’m a first time commenter and a long, long time reader/lurker. Since you just posted a retrospective of pictures from when you were in between blogs, I want to ask: have you ever considered putting together a best of retrospective for your old blog? I love your new blog, but it makes me sad that your new fans can’t really see how you transformed yourself since you started your first blog with the intention of using it as a platform to start your own vintage store. It’s been inspiring for me to see how your hopes and dreams have evolved over time and I’m sure your new fans would like to see that, too.

    Keep up the good work!
