20 things you won’t believe are from Walmart!

I’ll be the first to admit, I don’t love going shopping in the actual store but recently I had to do some shopping in store and I’m so glad I did because I came across these top 20 things that you won’t believe are from Walmart!

Women

Walmart has a few new brands.  One of them is called Time and Tru.  It appears there is everything from clothing to jewelry available under this brand.  These gold floral earrings are only $4.  I probably wouldn’t recommend wearing these if you have sensitive ears, but they would be so fun for dressing up a tee shirt and jeans!  These are only available IN STORE so I can’t link them for you.

These little quirky clear pouches were mixed in with the bags and purses.  They kind of have a ban.do look to them.  These would be perfect for throwing in your beach bag this summer.  Also can’t find these online, but look in the accessories area if you’re in a Walmart.

So these hard case suitcases are all the rage right now in the blogger world.  This rose gold one is pretty darn cute and the price is pretty darn great.  BONUS – it gets good reviews too!

Ummm, how stinking cute is this seersucker cap?  It was $3 so you can bet this one went home with me.  It will be perfect for the summer! How cute would it be to put a monogram on the front of this?? I’m not finding this one to link for you either, but this was located in the accessories area as well!

So I discovered these adorable rain boots prior to Christmas and snagged a blue pair for Henry.  They came in handy for a wet Easter egg hunt this past weekend. They have so many more colors now!  You can’t beat the price either. These are linked below!

So little jelly sandals for girls were a big thing in the 80’s and 90’s and these totally reminded me of those!  These are by Wonder Nation (Walmart’s cute new brand for kids)!  And you can’t beat the price ($5).

This is the second year now where I have found some super cute swim trunks and these plain swim shirts for my son!  The prints aren’t terrible, and I love the PLAIN swim shirt because it will go with all of his trunks.

My son is growing so fast lately so PJ’s are always needed.  I love these cute little robot print ones!

Another super cool thing I found was this set of plates, cups and utensils.  It sort of reminded me of the stuff IKEA sells.  I can’t find this exact set on their website, but this same brand has the most adorable little graphic melamine plates for your tots!  These would make great Easter basket stuffers!

Jumpsuit styling tips

Jumpsuits are a big trend right.  Before you start saying you can’t pull one off, let me share with you why I love jumpsuits and you should too.  There are so many options.  And in case you don’t know exactly what a jumpsuit is, it consists of pants on bottom, and then various types of sleeves up top.  The main reason I love them is because you can style a jumpsuit in so many ways.  It’s like having multiple outfits in one!  And I bet you have most of these pieces in your closet already to work with.

The first, and most obvious way to style a jumpsuit is to wear it exactly as you purchase it!  🙂  Depending on the length of the jumpsuit and your height will determine your shoe choice.  In my case, I’m short, but this particular jumpsuit was on the shorter side and flats pair perfectly with it.

Another great option for styling a jumpsuit is to throw on a denim jacket.  This is the perfect way to turn something into an office appropriate outfit.  For example, if your jumpsuit has spaghetti straps then putting a denim jacket on over it makes it work appropriate.

Lastly, I threw a plain cotton tee on over my jumpsuit and tied it in a cute little knot.  This really gave it a fun laid back casual look.  And it gave me a chance to wear my FAVE tee of all time.  I’m linking it for you below.

Loving Lately

Hi gals!  I’m here with my latest edition of Loving Lately!  So if you know me or have been following for a bit now, you know I love to browse online (basically one of the reasons I started my blog).  My goal is to consistently bring you these loving lately posts because I know we are all always looking for different things at different times.  My hope is that these posts save you the hassle and time of having to look for things on your own.  Let’s get down to business, shall we? 🙂

Road Trip Tee

How cute is this tee from Madewell?  Summertime is all about trips to the lake and traveling to fun places with friends and family.  This tee would be super cute with some denim cutoffs and it’s 15% off through 3/11!

Stripe Wrap Dress

This wrap dress has stripes AND ruffles!  I haven’t tried this one on (hoping to do so soon and report back), but this one looks like it’s long enough that it would be office appropriate with a pair of wedges for a more dressed up look.  Or you can pair it with some flats for a casual look.

Suede Belt

Ladies, this belt is only $28!  I checked it out in person and the quality is great!  I like the thinner profile to this belt.  I think it will be perfect with jeans, cut offs, skirts, or dresses!  It’s a pretty timeless piece.

Floppy Straw Hat

I LOVE hats!  They hide bad hair days, and they protect your skin from the damaging rays of the sun.  This one is a no brainer.  I like the fact that this one is simple.  It works for everyone and it’s under $30.

Embroidered Dress

I love the color and texture of this one. . . I haven’t felt it in person, but it sort of has that vintage-y look to it.  It also looks way more expensive than it actually is too.  Wear it with some espadrilles or footbed sandals for a perfect spring look!

Bardot Polka Dot One-Piece

This swimsuit sort of reminds me of the dress Julia Roberts wore in Pretty Woman so I instantly love it.  I also love that it comes with detachable straps too!  This suit is great because it comes in actual cup sizes as well.

Espadrille Sandals

If you buy one pair of sandals this season, let it be the espadrille.  There are SO many options out there, but I have my eyes on these because they only have a 2″ platform which means it will look cute and dressed up with skirts and dresses.  But they will also be perfect with shorts and jeans for a more laid back look!

Denim Skirt

It’s back ladies!  The denim skirt.  I remember having one of these in college, but I haven’t owned one since.  I love the color of this one and the slight frayed hem. The length looks pretty appropriate too.

Toddler Boy and Girl Style Basics

I am kicking off the week with a post about toddler boy and girl style basics!  There are so many options for picking out clothes for your littles, and I thought I would break it down for you when it comes to every day essentials.

Toddler Boy and Girl Basics

Our kids go to daycare 5 days a week, which means they are pretty hard on their clothes.  Between playing outside and doing arts and crafts, we need pieces that last but don’t break the bank.  That doesn’t mean they have to look like ragamuffins though!  Old Navy is by far my number 1 place to shop for some of the basics such as leggings, cotton dresses, tees and pants for both kiddos.  It’s also a great place to stock up on festive attire for any given holiday.  Target’s Cat & Jack line is another go to of mine.  And for spring and summer every day shoes, I always buy them each a pair of Natives.

Old Navy is definitely my go to for tees and leggings.  And as I previously mentioned, you can always find the greatest toddler style for any upcoming festive holiday (St. Pat’s is less than 2 weeks away).

For the boys

When shopping for Henry, I love buying pants/joggers that have elastic in the waist band because they are easy to get on and off since changing his diaper is nearly impossible these days.  But I think these are great for potty trained kiddos too so they can work on getting them on and off by themselves.  I love this pair from Gap because they have the elastic waist band and aren’t overly baggy.

Target’s Cat & Jack brand also carries a variety of these jogger types of pants too and the price tag is muy bueno!  I love how all of their tees coordinate so well too.  I’m linking some of my current faves below:

 For the Girls

I love buying coordinating tees and leggings for Layla, as well as cute little cotton dresses that she can wear with the leggings or biker shorts underneath.  Old Navy is pretty much my one stop shop for her.  I’m linking all of my current faves below so you can stock up for your mini me as well!

These tutu dresses from Old Navy are amazing because they can be worn to daycare with leggings OR you can put one on her when she needs to be a little more dressed up too!  Can’t beat the price either.

I love stocking up on leggings and the three pack of plain tees for her because they mix and match perfectly!

Every year I stock up on the biker shorts because they are perfect for throwing on underneath dresses and skirts in the summertime.

For boys and girls

And lastly, if you’re not familiar with Natives then let me introduce you.  These shoes are shock absorbent, odor resistant, hand-washable, and come in an endless amount of color options.  I was sold at hand washable!  These are great for spring and summer because you can slip them right on your kiddos (without socks) and go.  Most styles are under $40 and worth every penny.  I will say if your little one has a wider foot, then the Jefferson style might be too narrow for him/her.  Try the Verona or Miller styles instead.

Evereve Try On Session

This post was sponsored by Evereve, but the opinions are my own. Thanks for letting me share this great brand with you!

Hey girl gang!  I’m sharing a quick try on session that I did recently at Evereve.  If you have never heard of Evereve, let me introduce you!  The brand was created by Megan Tamte in 2004.  Megan is a mom and envisioned Evereve during long walks and late night brain storming sessions.  Today they have 80 stores across the country (including a new one here in Saint Louis at the Galleria)!  The instore shopping experience is top notch!  Their stylists help you every step of the way, and if you’re shopping with kiddos in tow, they have you covered!  Tons of toys and snacks on hand!  They carry a ton of brands and styles for all shapes and sizes!

Tops

This adorable embroidered kimono + scalloped cami + denim jeggings were my absolute faves and they went home with me.  This outfit is so me and I will wear it often.  I almost didn’t try on the kimono, but my awesome stylist brought it to me and it quickly became my fave!

Another top that I LOVED was this Free People, black loose fitting gauze like top.  It’s perfect for spring and summer.  You could wear it now with some highwaisted denim, or into the summer with a pair of shorts or even as a swim cover up!

Dresses

This floral button up dress by Level 99 is ah-mazing!  You can style it over a tee or without a tee.  Wear it with little booties or with sandals!  So many options.  This one is a little on the pricey side, but so pretty!

This black dress feels like you’re wearing pajamas!  It has perfectly placed rouching details in the front too!  This is one that could easily be dressed up or down!

I threw this adorable cardigan over this dress too.  It’s a bit oversized but looks great over this dress and you would be able to wear with tons of other things too.

This would be a great work appropriate dress.   It has a cute asymmetrical button detail and tie.  This would look perfect paired with a strappy pair of heeled sandals.
