Hardly a day goes by that I don’t get at least one automated “out of the office” email reply from a reader when I send out my daily emails. Of course I don’t mind those at all. Instead I’m always a little curious about what my sweet readers are doing on their day out of the office. And I certainly hope it’s something fun and relaxing. And that’s what inspired today’s Out of the Office outfits that I’ve styled with casual fashions from Kohl’s. See if you would enjoy wearing one of these four summer outfits from Kohl’s on your day away from work.
First up I styled a fun outfit for hanging out with your grandkids at the park. You’ll look like the cool grandma in these Sonoma Goods for Life convertible utility pants and sweet “Out of the Office” t-shirt. My convertible utility pants are in a versatile blue-ish dark grey, but they come in other shades, too. They fit true to size (I’m wearing an 8) and the fabric is lightweight with a little stretch. Perfect for a hot summer day out of the office!
I grabbed this “Out of the Office” t-shirt because it perfectly conveyed the vibes I wanted to create in this everyday collection. The soft t-shirt runs a little small; I sized up to a large. It’s available in a lot of other fun prints, too.
I love the tapered straight leg silhouette of these trending convertible utility pants. And I think the ankle length looks great with my taupe Sonoma Goods for Life slip on sneakers. These shoes feature a breathable textile upper and a durable textured sole, and they are super comfortable. They fit a little roomy true to size, but they stay on my feet nicely and feel great. They come in six other nice colors, too.
Of course the price point is great on all of these casual fashions from Kohl’s. They have been one of my family’s go-to sources for quality fashions and home goods at affordable prices for years. And today through this weekend you can take 20% off your purchase at Kohl’s with coupon code SHOP20.
My next outfit for your day out of the office is comprised of those same versatile convertible utility pants and a feminine yellow tiered v-neck t-shirt. I love this cheerful outfit for a warm summer morning at the farmers’ market or produce stand.
This slightly full and flowy tiered v-neck t-shirt fits true to size; I’m wearing a medium. It comes in six other fun solids, too.
If I’m not intentional about creating outfits like these every now and again, I can get carried away posting work outfit and special occasion styles. But we need comfortable and stylish clothes for our more mundane everyday activities. In fact, maybe it’s in having something fresh and pretty to wear that these simple tasks become less ordinary and more delightful.
I’d enjoy wearing this simple but feminine combination to the local produce stand to select something yummy and fresh for dinner or to the garden nursery to buy some pretty flowers to plant. And then I’d go home and get to work! Not in the office, mind you. But doing the things that make my home more cheerful and inviting.
Of course another delightful way to spend a day out of the office is window shopping with good cup of coffee in hand. I thought this multi green stripe pintuck linen dress looked sweet for an afternoon strolling through downtown.
The pintuck linen dress comes in a variety of other colors and prints and solids, and it fits true to size. I’m wearing a medium. It’s very lightweight but not especially sheer.
For this outfit and the next I wore my Skechers On-the-Go sandals. They fit comfortably true to size and the memory foam footbed makes them so comfortable for hours of strolling. I also appreciate that these On-the-Go sandals are lightweight, so they don’t feel heavy on your feet like some similar sandals do. I chose mine in the natural shade, but they also come in black.
I generally choose not to wear much jewelry when it’s hot outside. So I added only gold-plated hoop earrings and a dainty necklace, which is no longer available. But I found this double strand delicate butterfly necklace that would be perfect for casual summer outfits. Or you also might consider this layered necklace. I’ll include several nice options in the shopping widget below.
Whether you’re getting things done or celebrating what’s already done on your day out of the office, this next outfit will have you feeling cheerful and cool.
Sonoma Goods for Life calls these utility capris. But these lightweight utility pants wear and look more like an ankle length pant. They run true to size (wearing an 8) and they come in several fun and basic colors. Mine are the olive green, and I thought this color would pair nicely with my dusty blue popover v-neck utility tank.
Did you know that front pleats in pants are trending again? It may take some getting used to for me, but I figured casual everyday pants would be a good place to start adapting. Sonoma Goods for Life calls these high-rise pants, but I think they fit a little lower than midrise. Still they are comfortable and lightweight for a warm summer day out of the office.
My popover v-neck utility tank runs true to size, but fits very roomy. I might could have even sized down to a small. The utility tank comes in a great collection of colors and neutrals. You could also wear it untucked, but I felt like the ankle length pants would look disproportionate without a gentle front tuck.
Don’t forget that Kohl’s is offering 20% off your purchase this weekend with code SHOP20. And you can collect $10 Kohl’s Cash for every $25 spent, too.

Blessed for My Day
Waiting for the Lord ultimately brings blessing as we put our trust in Him rather than running ahead and trying to manage things ourselves. But there’s waiting…and there’s waiting well. As time ticks by and prayers go unanswered, it’s tempting to grumble and complain. As days turn into years and hope fades, it’s human to lose faith in God. And as another dream is dashed, we might be prone to grow jaded and more guarded.
But when we wait well, we must trust that God is at work even if we can’t see or hear what He is doing. Truly waiting well is an act of worship. It requires submission, release, humility. It demands that we continue to praise Him even when our hearts may not be in it. And as we worship God in the waiting time, we will be more inclined to obey Him. Are you waiting for God to do something in your life? May integrity and uprightness characterize your life as you patiently put your hope in Him and praise Him in the waiting.
May integrity and uprightness preserve me,
for I wait for you. ~ Psalm 25:21
