There's a reason I get everything from Kohl's and Target.

Yesterday Sarah and I went dress shopping with my mom. Sarah has her first ever piano recital at the end of this month and my mom wanted her to have a new dress.  And new shoes.

So we started with an early lunch at Jason's Deli and then headed to the mall.  If you are a regular reader of my What I Wore Sunday posts you know that most of my shopping is done at Kohl's and Target. 

And yesterday I remembered why.

The mall is big and I think I should have eaten more at Jason's Deli to sustain me for the whirling shopping dervish named Sarah.

She picked out and tried on 10 dresses and then picked out and tried on 4 more.  She was in hog heaven parading in front of the mirror, twirling around, posing like a model. 

We finally narrowed it down to 5 dresses.  We each had a favorite and she was torn.  She ultimately although I think reluctantly decided on the one I like the best and we headed out to hang to dresses back on the racks. (At Kohl's and Target you do not have to hang up your merchandise.  I'm just sayin'.)

As we began the hunt for the cash register (At Kohl's and Target the registers are conveniently located by the entrances.  I'm just sayin'.) we all stopped in our tracks.  Hanging on a rack out in the middle aisle was a dress.  It was so pretty. It was navy blue with white polka dots.  It was just the right mix of sweet, stylish and dressy without being too dressy. It was just perfect for a piano recital.

It looked out of place hanging on a rack with only all white dresses.  I am assuming someone just stuck it there because they didn't want to hang it where it belonged. (Another Kohl's shopper perhaps?)

We all looked at it and said, "What a pretty dress!"  Sarah smiled when we said, "You should try it on."

So we went back into the dressing room and tried on dress number 15 and we all agreed it was "the one."

If only the shoe shopping had been as smooth. 

We went into store after store and continued to come out empty handed.  I had enough of the mall and decided it was time to head home. The mall had beaten me down. Worn me out.  Made me hungry. I felt like I had just done a Jillian workout.

So on Friday I'm taking Sarah to Kohl's and Target. 

I'm just sayin'.
