Summer of Style | 01

Happy Wednesday from the Athens airport, friends! After a quick overnight here, we’re back at the airport catching the short flight to Santorini. The ferry from Athens to Santorini is about 5-hours, so we opted to fly this leg, but we’ll be taking the ferries for the duration of the trip. I’m excited to see how that goes!  I’m sharing all the fun on my Instagram Story, but you know I’ll post the details and full Trip Reports once we’re home!

Today I’m excited to bring back my weekly series, Summer of Style! My goal is always to inspire you, but also share ways to stretch your wardrobe. You’ve probably noticed that my style posts typically involve multiple styling options…but sometimes a girl just wants a simple outfit idea!

Especially in Summer, when the pace is slower, and style becomes a little simpler and more minimal. (At least in the Texas heat it does!) So Summer of Style is just that…a weekly outfit to (hopefully) inspire your Summer wardrobe! They’ll be easy-to-recreate combinations, that cover all aspects of your life…work, weekend, date night, and lazy pool/beach days.

I know y’all are smitten with affordable finds, and I think I’m going to blow your mind with this one!!

Maxi Dress | Striped Woven Tote | Sandals | Similar Wide Belt

Isn’t this combo the epitome of Summer breezy chic?! Walmart. Yes ma’am…I found it at Walmart!! I actually found so many amazing finds, so stay tuned Monday for more!

The gorgeous floral comes in two shades, and is light as a breeze against your skin. It’s a semi-sheer chiffon, layered over a soft woven lining, with mandarin collar and open v-neck. I love the slight halter neckline on the back, too! I added a wide belt, but it’s a beautiful, forgiving silhouette without. If you prefer a waist, I’m currently stocking this dress, as well!

The bag is another showstopper…real sisal and leather straps, and under $30!! Incredible!!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a small, but would prefer an XS…so true to size.

I’ve been wearing these sandals for a few months already, and you honestly can’t find a better pair of slides for the money (they’re $8!).

Fit Tip: Available in whole sizes only, so I went down half. Also, the website isn’t a good depiction of the true color…mine are the tan and these photos are true to color.

The entire Textile line at Walmart is incredibly chic and well-made…I’m featuring several more styles next week (this maxi and this chambray for starters!). Walmart also offers free 2-day shipping and returns for purchases over $35 (just check to be sure it’s sold and shipped by…like everything I feature.)

    Super cute-leave it to Cassie! I hear 60’s/70’s music….
    One time, my friend’s daughter flew in to a client meeting. Her luggage never made it. She went to the closest Walmart and did fine. Pulled together a completely legit look!

    You snagged me with that very first picture, and I was shocked to find out it was Walmart!!! I thought JCPenny, or Amazon! To be honest, if I had seen this on their web-site, I would have passed on by, because of how frumpy it looks. But, the addition of the belt makes it a lot cuter. That’s something I wouldn’t have thought of, even though you’ve been teaching me for years!! I guess I need more lessons 😉
    Have a great time in Greece!! Safe travels!!
