Summer of Style | 09

Welcome back to a new week, friends! I hope you had a great weekend and are soaking the last bits of Summer. Labor Day may be the unofficial end of Summer days, but we’ll have at least six more weeks of crazy heat here in Texas. In fact, it’s been hotter in the last couple of weeks than it’s been all Summer long!

So the shorts and sandals aren’t going anywhere just yet! And honestly, I’m okay with it! I love cardigans and boots as much as the next girl, but there’s just something so easy about Summer styles. Today I’m sharing two looks perfect for your Labor Day weekend…and since it’s all Walmart finds, you know the prices are incredible!


Look One / Stars & Stripes

You can never go wrong with a striped tee, and this one is extra-stretchy with a cute embroidered star detail. The red is fun year-round, but especially perfect for all the Summer holidays.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS tee

Striped Tee | Jean Shorts | Sneakers | Tote Bag | Aviators

These jean shorts were a surprise favorite, and already I can’t stop wearing them! They’re soft and stretchy, and fit a bit more like a chino short than denim. The inseam is a tad longer, so I feel fully-covered, and the leg opening has a slight a-line shape, so there’s no thigh-hugging. #praise And they’re made by Levi’s, so you know they’re quality…but still under $20!! (Others obviously agree since they have perfect 5-star reviews!)

Fit Tip: I sized up one for a relaxed fit, I’m wearing a 4

Jean Shorts | Sneakers

And how about these sneakers!!?? They are legit one of the cutest pairs I’ve found all year, plus they’re super comfortable!! They’re sturdy with a padded insole and soft enough inside to go sockless. The colors go with virtually everything, too!

Fit Tip: If in-between, I’d size down half. 


Walmart is my favorite source for incredible woven bags and totes this Summer (like this one and this one!!)…and this $5 tote is perfect for Summer weekends.

Look Two / Stripes on Stripes

Not only is this swing tank darling, and the navy stripes perfect for Summer holidays, but it’s made of the softest modal cotton! And as cute as it is from the front, the back is what makes it special!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS

The tank has a swing shape, with a back slit that cuts to the waist (doesn’t reveal any skin). I love how they varied the direction of the stripes on the front and back, too. Certainly a lot of style for just $10!

I paired it with white jeans (which I’ll still wear long past Labor Day!) and the cutest woven tote. I’m so smitten with this full collection and am so impressed by the quality!

The vegan slides are crazy-comfy with a padded insole and great neutral color.

Fit Tip: Sandals are true to size

I prefer to keep my holiday styles more about the color than the theme…and honestly, I love red, white, and blue any of time year! But it’s especially fun on Memorial and Labor Day, and of course Fourth of July. Do you have big Labor Day plans? What about the weather where you are…is it still full-blown Summer, or is Fall creeping in?

    Have you had any problems with holes in the material on the bottom front of their T-shirt’s? I have had to return 3 to the store because of this. Thanks

      OH no, that’s so disappointing to hear! I haven’t had any issues with mine so far! I’m a little more forgiving when it’s super affordable to begin with. xo. C

    My husband and I are headed to Dallas this weekend & I’m really looking forward to it. Besides all of the shopping I have planned, we are going to a Rangers game and college football at Cowboy stadium.

      That’s not true, actually. I’m always completely honest with the products and reviews. Just because a brand is paying me, doesn’t mean they have control over my opinions and what I say. If I had a problem with any of the products, I simply wouldn’t share them. xo. C
