While I was searching Walmart’s website for all of those fabulous swimsuits and beach accessories, I found some “too good not to share” spring/summer staples (there really is so much good stuff at Walmart!). I ordered a handful of items to try on. Based on the fantastic quality of the items I ordered I will certainly order the remaining items ASAP, since I’m sure they’ll sell out quickly!
#1 Allison Britney (medium) I was very happy when I was able to see and feel this dress in person since I was concerned about the fabric. I was relieved that the material is similar to seersucker, but not as heavy, for those hot summer months. The neckline stays put and doesn’t creep up. — This is so very important to me because I can’t stand having to pull a neckline back in place! I did remove the belt because I wasn’t blessed with an hourglass figure. — This made the dress a little more loose fitting, so depending on your preference you may want to size down.
#2 Faded Glory Women’s Tee Dress (medium) The description of this dress was a little misleading for me. I anticipated a t-shirt material, but what arrived was a polyester blend. It was a pleasant surprise because not only was I able to style it for regular “mom activities” (aka super casual) but I also have the option of dressing it up.
This dress is amazing, not only because of the $5 price tag, but because of the longer length in the back. It is perfect for putting kids in their car seats/shopping carts, bending over, etc. without exposing too much of yourself :). The shoulders do run small so I would suggest sizing up if you have broader shoulders.
#4 Time and Tru Denim Shorts (size 6) A size 4 would have fit better in the waist, but I wasn’t sure how much they would shrink. — To be safe, I ordered a size 6 . These shorts are a great “mom length”… not too long and not too short. They remind me of a pair of GAP shorts I purchased a couple of years ago, but much softer. At this price I’m definitely going to be ordering more…more shorts = less laundry, right!?
#6 Como Blu bell sleeve top (small) I LOVE this top and was initially worried that the smocking detail on the sleeves would make the shirt look cheap. I was shocked when I opened the box and saw the fantastic quality. This will definitely be in heavy rotation this spring/summer.
#7 Como Blu Polka Dot Blouse (small) This top immediately reminded me of JCrew (without the price-tag)! I was not disappointed when it arrived. The quality of the fabric and fit were perfect! I love the knot detail on the sleeve. Buying this top is a no-brainer since it can take you from work to Happy Hour effortlessly!
#10 Time and Tru Bell Sleeve Peplum Top (no longer available online in an 8/10). I purchased the 8/10 after I tried the top on in store because the bust was pretty tight (consider sizing up). The material is lightweight, which is perfect for spring and summer. *Editor’s Note: Please forgive the pale legs…I haven’t started my self-tanner regime.
As always, Happy Shopping! I hope I’ve helped you add a few trendy items to your closet without braking the bank!
