Happy April, friends! We’re headed home today from an amazing weekend in NYC celebrating our Little Miss. I can’t believe our precious girl is now 13…and I have two teenagers! Life is fast, and sweet, and hard, and all the things, but being their mom is my biggest joy.
I’m trying so hard to savor each day with them, but can’t escape the feeling that I’m just hanging on by my fingertips. As desperately as I want time to freeze, or even go back to when they were younger, they both just keep growing!!
But before I start another round of ugly crying, let’s get to today’s post! Earlier this month I shared some darling beach wear for the whole family…from Walmart of all places! And the overwhelming response was, ‘Wait, what?! Show me more!’
Challenge accepted! But as it turns out, it wasn’t terribly challenging to find more stylish pieces at Walmart! Their site is easy to navigate, and soon my cart was full of super-cute finds for Spring.
These pieces were my favorites from the first batch. Yep, I’ve got another order coming…once you get started, it’s hard to stop! The prices are just too good! I styled eight outfits with my Walmart finds, and most everything is under $20!
First of all, this pocket v-neck tee is legit!! Soft, slub cotton with a great length and sleeve, and comes in tons of colors. And get this…it’s only $8! EIGHT! Stock up on all the colors, you won’t be sorry.
I’m wearing ‘lilac glaze’ and love it paired with this camo skirt. Y’all, this darling skirt is from Walmart! And it’s $18! I know, I need to chill, but the quality of these pieces is seriously the same as big-name department stores, so it’s pretty exciting. The skirt is super-sturdy twill, with a cute little embroidery on the back pocket.
And the sandals? Yep, $8.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small in the tee, size 2 skirt, and since the sandals don’t come in half-sizes, I rounded up.
Looking to add a little boho to your Spring wardrobe? Love this flowy embroidered top with ties on the sleeve. It’s a crisp, lightweight fabric, and billowy shape.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small, but needed an XS, so it’s true to size.
This ribbed cardigan was actually suggested by one of you! She tole me she lives in these cardigans, so of course I had to try for myself. And yes ma’am, it’s a good one! Sturdy, but soft, and beautifully made. I love the length and pockets, not to mention the huge selection of colors. Layer it over tees and camis, or even sundresses.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small, so size up if you prefer a looser fit through the upper arms.
Shift dresses are so easy-to-wear and perfect for Spring and Summer days. I loved the soft linen-blend of this one, plus the pockets and stripes! It’s fully-lined (!!!) with a curved hemline. The pockets are a little bulky at the hips, but lie flat after a good steaming.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small, but would prefer my usual XS…so true to size.
This bag though!! Obsessed! The colors, the woven raffia, the long shoulder straps…the price! It’s great for travel, too, since it packs flat.
Another camo find…this cotton twill utility jacket is sturdy really well-made. It wears a bit like a shirt, but has the feel of a light jacket. The camo print is spot-on, and even has a cute little embroidery on the pocket.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS
Nothing groundbreaking about this outfit, except it’s pretty much my Summer uniform! I can’t get enough of these pocket tees and sandals (similar to the popular grecian slides!).
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small tee, and rounded up in the sandals.
My teacher friend raved over this bag, and she totally nailed it! The material is like a thick, woven Mexican blanket, with contrasting trim and handles. It’s chock-full of pockets and compartments, making it a great diaper bag too (so says my friend!), and even comes with the tassel! It comes in six colors and patterns, but this black and the blue stripe are my faves.
I live in jean jackets pretty much year-round, so I was excited to find this affordable quality option. It’s thick and sturdy with just a touch of stretch, and the light wash is great for Spring. The stripes are already a fave of mine…thick, stretchy cotton that’s so soft.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS in the jacket, but need to size down one (it’s roomy through the chest, perfect for busty gals), and a small in the stripes.
And finally, how darling is this combo?! Wide legs pants are everywhere this Spring, and these are so cute with the tortoise buttons and chambray stripes. Of course I paired it with my latest obsession, the $8 tee, and the fun striped tote (not just for the beach!)
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small tee. The pants are juniors so I sized up to a small…but needed to size up again (they’re pulling across the hips).
So what do you think? Can you believe each of these outfits are under $50, most under $30!? Which pieces are your fave of the bunch? See more of my finds for the whole family here.
