Summer Date Ready

Midi Dress // Denim Jacket (size up for an oversized fit) // Sneakers // Crossbody Bag

This is the first year that my husband and I both have the summer off, and we are enjoying every minute of it. Dates are made that much better as we can leave on a whim and go from running errands to a patio dinner on the lake. I know it won’t always be like this, so I am savoring every minute of this special summer.

Because date nights (and day dates!!) have been happening frequently and on a whim, I have been looking for comfy cute dresses that are adaptable. This time of year, I also look for pieces that can transition into the next season and have been finding ALL the right options at Walmart!

The past few seasons, I have been perusing the Walmart site and finding the cutest options to update my wardrobe, whether it be for date night or the classroom. I love that I can find clothing I feel good in, is flattering, and doesn’t break the bank! Walmart’s newest campaign, We Dress America, aligns with those same sentiments, offering clothing this is on trend, unique, inclusive and affordable.

This midi dress came home with me the moment I saw it. This dress isn’t just comfy, it’s also super flattering and makes me feel like a million bucks with a very budget friendly price tag! This versatile piece can be dressed up or down, and has quickly become one of my go to’s! I love that I can pair it with sneakers and a denim jacket and am ready for whatever our day may hold! This dress can also be worn from season to season. Top it off with a sweater and some booties and you are ready for fall!

Walmart Finds Under $35

Last week I shared a try on via stories with finds from Walmart under $35. I’m OBSESSED with the pieces I picked up and thought it was only appropriate that I shared them here too! I found so many great closet staples at prices that won’t break the bank! In fact, you can snag ALL the pieces I’m sharing today for a whopping $14o! Check out my faves below!

Tee // Jeans // Heeled Sandals

White Tee (Size: Medium // Price: $6): This white tee is only $6 and the quality is so good! It definitely reminds me of one of my basic white tee’s that was 4 times the price! I ended up sizing up so I could easily knot it and because I like the oversized fit!

Skinny Jeans (Size: 2 // Price: $17 ): Say hello to the MOST flattering jeans under $20…and yes, I said $20! I was so pleasantly surprised with the fit of this pair! From the dark wash to the higher waist and the minimal distressing, this denim reminds me of one of my favorite designer pairs.

Heeled Sandals (Size: 7 – tts // Price: $32 ): I was so excited about this heeled sandal find. I had been wanting a similar pair, but hadn’t wanted to fork over the large hunk of cash for them. These hit the sweet spot at just $32 and they are SO GOOD! They come in 4 different colors, have the perfect heel height and are comfortable enough to withstand a day on your feet in a classroom!

Polka Dot Crop Top // Jeans // Heeled Sandals 

Polka Dot Crop Top (Size: Small // Price: $13 ): I shared a similar top a few months ago and it sold out so fast! I was excited to find this option that was half the price! This little top is slightly cropped and looks so cute with high waisted bottoms. It can be worn on or off the shoulders and also comes in a pretty shade of grey!

Mini Dress // Heeled Sandals

Mini Dress (Size: Small // Price: $8): This is summer’s perfect LBD! This cutie can be dressed up or down and looks like it was double the price. In reality, this mini is only $8! Hands down my favorite find!

Off the Shoulder Dress // Sandals 

Off the Shoulder Dress (Size: Small // Price: $13.50): I picked up this sweet midi dress because I thought it would be the perfect swimsuit cover up! Its light-weight and flowy and can be worn on or off the shoulders. This is a comfy piece that would be great for your next vacay! Note: It is slightly see-thru, but nothing some nude undergarments can’t fix!

Sandals (Size: 7 – tts // Price: $28): If you buy ONE thing from Walmart, let it be these $28 sandals. I had an almost identical pair in my cart for $100 when I saw these and I am so glad I went with them! They are so well made and so comfortable! The perfect summer sandal!

Swing Dress // Chambray // Sandals

Swing Dress (Size: Small // Price: $10): This little swing dress is SO comfortable! It’s one of those pieces that you can throw on and go. It can be dressed up or down and is something I will wear to the classroom. Plus, it has pockets!

Top // Bottoms 

PJ Set (Size: Small (both top and bottoms) // Price: Top $5 – Bottoms $6): I wore this comfy pj set in the black at the RewardStyle Conference and loved it so much I snagged it in a few more colors. I can’t even tell you how soft this pj set is! And to make things even better, both pieces are currently on sale, making this set a total of $11!!

Spring Wardrobe Refresh with Walmart

Look 1: Dress (Also comes in red) // Heeled Sandals

Look 2: Dress // Chambray Top // Sneakers

Look 3: Tee // Striped Pants // Sandals

Spring is in full swing and I’ve officially swapped out my winter gear for spring pieces! Just like with any new season, I was excited to add some new staples into my spring and summer clothing rotation. I was on the hunt for some comfy but cute pieces that I could easily transition from the classroom to the weekend and I hit the jackpot at Walmart!

Walmart has seriously stepped up their fashion game and recently has become one of my go to’s. I love that I can find clothing I feel good in, is flattering and doesn’t break the bank! Walmart’s newest campaign, We Dress America, speaks to those same sentiments, offering clothing that is unique, on trend, affordable and inclusive.

 As I mentioned, I found SO many goodies when shopping the Walmart site! From dresses to sandals, I picked up some great pieces to refresh my wardrobe for spring!

This little dress was one of my favorite finds, as it reminds me of a much pricier option. I paired it with the most comfortable and cute heeled sandals that will go with everything! The ultimate little swing dress is another comfy and cute spring option. What I love about this piece is that it is PERFECT for the classroom and is so easy to dress up or down. It’s a great little weekend dress when paired with some sneakers! A basic white tee and pants combo is another great option for work or the weekend. I can’t wait to to take these pants on vacay. They will be perfect for a beach getaway!

Essential Little T-shirt Dress & 5 Ways to Wear It

T-Shirt Dress // Quilted Slip On Shoes // Tote Bag

Yesterday was the FIRST day we had sunshine in some time. It was a nice reminder that spring is FINALLY just around the corner. This has been the longest winter ever with more snow than we have had in a long time. I am ready to trade my layers and winter boots for sandals and dresses!

Speaking of dresses, I found the essential little t-shirt dress when shopping for spring pieces. A good t-shirt dress is one of my spring and summer staples. Not only are they comfortable but they are easy to transition from chilly spring days to a hot summer night. As a teacher, a t-shirt dress is also a MUST for the comfort and ease it offers.

This little striped number from Ellen DeGeneres’ EV1 Collection at Walmart is a perfect piece to take from the classroom to the weekend and is so versatile (see all the ways to style it below). It has just the right amount of stretch and is SO comfy! I love the length, which isn’t too short for work and is just long enough to knot the hem…a trend I love! The subtle heart patch on the front adds a sweet, unique touch. The whole EV1 collection at Walmart is SO cute. Easy pieces to mix, match and layer with fun prints that pop for spring!
