Snapshots from Bahamas | Affordable Beach Wear for the Whole Family

There’s no question I have a regular group of retailers…my go-to spots for shopping fashion finds. A favorite for dresses, another for swimsuits, and that one spot I’m almost always sure to find a cute top.

But one thing I’ve learned over the years of style blogging, is no single retailer is guaranteed! I leave stores empty-handed more often than not (even when only looking for things to share with you!). The opposite is also true though! Retailers I’d never think to check surprise me with darling finds all the time!

Case in point…Walmart. Yes ma’am, I said Walmart.

The night before our Spring Break trip, we stopped in for last-minute packing supplies…sunscreen, bug spray, anti-bacterial wipes, travel shampoos…the usual suspects. An hour later I walked out with some amazing fashion finds for everyone in our family!! And not one thing was over $20…in fact, most everything is under $10!

Which is perfect considering the wear-and-tear on beach items.

My first find was this crochet-trim coverup…lightweight, not too sheer, and dries quickly. Not to mention only $15 and comes in seven colors!

I picked this hat up from a local market on the island, but this one is very similar. I love having the lanyard option for windy days.

Look at this cute outfit…would you have ever guessed Walmart?! Shirt, shoes, hat and bag…and I seriously love every single piece! The striped top is thick and soft, and could seriously be sold for three-times the price at any other retailer. At under $10, I’ve already ordered another color!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small shirt (XS wasn’t available). The sandals are true to size, have a comfy padded footbed, and are seriously good dupes of the popular Grecian sandals! For SEVEN DOLLARS!

I waited until after the kids gave their new finds a thumbs-up before telling them it was all from Walmart. They were seriously impressed! #momwin

But there’s no denying this jumpsuit is cute, am I right?! Plus, the quality is great and it laundered beautifully!

Mr. SP always appreciates a good deal, and was shocked his new swimsuit was only $10! These swim trunks are legit…sturdy material that dries quickly, and full mesh lining.

The biggest surprise was in the beach bag selection…seriously so many cute options, it took me 20 minutes to decide on just one! It’s big enough for all the day’s essentials, plus four beach towels. It even comes with the tassel!

All in all, I’m feeling pretty good about the beach styles I scored for amazing prices, and will certainly be checking Walmart more regularly now! How about you…have you stumbled on some cute things at unexpected retailers? Do you check Walmart for fashion? Would you be interested in seeing more finds from them? Especially for Summer, when clothes are lighter and more casual?

Stay tuned for the full Trip Report of our Spring Break trip to Exuma, plus everything I packed and wore.
