Paisley Pants

I’ve been gravitating towards light, chic pants like this for summer days and nights.  These pants are even more GORGEOUS in person and feel like silk.  They’re the perfect shade of navy blue, and have such a pretty paisley print on the bottom.  They run true to size (wearing a small here.)  The waistband is elastic making them easy to throw on and move around in.  I didn’t have to hem the bottom (I’m a little over 5’6”) and usually pair them with a gold or tan strappy sandal.  They would also look great with a heel or wedge especially if you’re under 5’6”! Paisley Jumpsuit Can we talk about how cute the jumpsuit version is?!  It just got marked on sale for under $18!  Both paisley printed pieces are from the Scoop collection at Walmart Fashion.  I own several pieces from the Scoop collection at Walmart Fashion and love that they’re all flattering and don’t get super wrinkled (yay for low maintenance clothing!) Easy Button Down This short sleeve button down is from the Time and Tru collection at Walmart Fashion.  You may remember the white dress I wore a few weeks ago was from there.  I honestly really love this collection – it’s full of great basics to round out your wardrobe.  This boyfriend T-shirt with a pocket is so cute and under $10 and this short sleeve henley is still a favorite of mine.

Hydrangeas in July

The hydrangeas in Thomas’ yard are in full bloom!  We cut a bunch to put in the kitchen and they always make me smile when I walk by them.  Hydrangeas always remind me of summer. Perfect White Dress For Summer I’ve been enjoying spending so much time at home and in the yard.  On a typical day, you’ll find me in an easy dress like this one, which is under $20!  I love the subtle shoulder tie detail, and the breathable, soft material it’s made of.  It’s fully lined so it’s not see through which is ideal!  It hits just below my shin and runs true to size, but if you’re in between sizes, you could absolutely size down.  It’s one of the many dresses I’ve ordered from Walmart Fashion’s dress section.  This style comes in this white color, a beautiful ivory shade, a nice blue color, and olive green. Summer Dresses Under $20 Since we’re in the yard so much – finding dresses that are cute, casual, and affordable is key!  I don’t have to worry about Charlie getting his paws all over me, or spilling food from a BBQ.  I also ordered this sweet black eyelet dress (I tucked in the straps and made it strapless!), and this floral wrap dress from Walmart Fashion.  The black eyelet dress looks great with gold jewelry, brown sandals and a straw tote.  The floral wrap dress is the perfect day to night option and can easily be dressed up with a wedge or heels.  It also comes in 3 other prints!

A Summer Picnic

The weather has been so gorgeous here so Thomas and I have been spending most of our time in his backyard. We set up a little picnic with wine and cheese the other night and it was so romantic! I wanted to wear something light and breathable so I threw on this chic kaftan. Thomas’ mom and sister saw it on me and loved it so much they each ordered one too! It’s selling out fast, so I highly recommend snapping it up before it goes! Summer Kaftan This summer white kaftan has the most beautiful eyelet details and a drawstring waist which makes it great for any shape or size. I’m wearing the S/M here and added my own slip underneath. It’s ideal for day or night with a slip, and also would be perfect as a pool/beach coverup. It comes in 4 colors; white, red, blue (LOVE!), and black. It’s from the Scoop collection at Walmart Fashion which has so many great dresses for summer. Chic Pieces For Summer A few other dresses I ordered from the Scoop line at Walmart Fashion, are this easy strapless white dress, this off the shoulder eyelet dress, and this floral ruffle sleeve dress (I also have it in pink.) If you’re looking for a new white blazer, you can’t go wrong with this linen one. And I’ve said it before, but I can’t get enough of this white eyelet cardigan. Walmart Fashion recently added this tan peasant blouse to the site – and I immediately ordered to wear with white jeans. Affordable Accessories If you’re in need of a coverup – this pink tie dye sarong is quite fun. Also really love this straw hat (FYI it’s an oversized fit.) I modified it by cutting off the cord so it’s more simple and streamlined. If you’re looking for a gold gladiator style sandal – these simple lace up ones are SO comfy, have a padded sole and also come in black. Shop the entire Scoop collection at Walmart Fashion below!

Peonies for Spring

Peonies for Spring I’ve been dying to get my hands on peonies to brighten up our apartment and finally found some across from one of my favorite restaurants in Soho; Little Prince. They had multiple colors, so I bought a few in every color to place around our home! I haven’t splurged on flowers in a while and let me tell you, it was 100% worth it. They really do elevate and change the entire vibe in a space. Relaxed Everyday Jeans The weather has been heating up in NYC (finally!!!) so I wore these comfy, high waisted straight leg jeans from Jordache Vintage (available exclusively at Walmart Fashion) the day we got our flowers. It’s funny because Jordache jeans were actually the first pair of “adult” jeans I ever bought. They make your butt look amazing – yep they really do! T even said “Woah! I like those on you!” when I walked out in them haha. I love the denim wash on these (not too light, not too dark), and the slight stretch/relaxed fit. I hate when jeans stretch out too much. And these allow you to actually move around in them without completely changing shape. I cuffed mine at the bottom for an even more relaxed look. I can attest that they look really cute dressed up with heels – I tried them on with a cute pair of block heels. The subtle detail on the side and pockets flatters any body type. They are a great, go-to, everyday blue jean (and major plus, they’re under $27.) FYI they run TTS, but if you want a tighter fit size down (I’m wearing a size 27 here.) Simple Black Tank I paired these jeans with a simple black top also from Jordache’s new vintage collection at Walmart Fashion. It’s ideal to throw on for casual errands around the city or even just to wear around the house. It runs true to size, but if you’re in between sizes I would size down since it is a longer cut. TBH it’s even a great workout top! Shop the rest of the Jordache Vintage collection at Walmart Fashion below (btw how cute are these denim shorts – and this hoodie too?)
