Summer Style with Walmart

Good Morning! Summer is in full effect in our house. The girls have been off of school for a week now and they are loving life! We have been enjoying the slower mornings and doing everything we can to stay cool in our hot South Florida summer; dresses are key for us all summer to stay cool!

I am so excited to be partnering with Walmart today in their We Dress America campaign to share these colorful summer dresses with you (affiliate links are used in this post). I have been sharing Walmart fashion finds for a while now and have been continuously impressed by the fashion forward style and quality. I love that I can shop for our whole family at Walmart and find really cute items! You all love shopping there too! Additionally I love that Walmart offers free 2-day shipping on most orders over $35 - or that you can pick up in store after ordering online! Yay for convenience! 

These looks that I am sharing today are head to toe from Walmart! My cold shoulder chambray dress is from the new Sofia Vergara collection and oh my goodness it is SO cute! This dress is flattering, versatile and also makes a statement with it's feminine details. I wore size small in this dress, which is the size that I normally wear at Walmart. I honestly could not believe it was just $36!

You can dress it up with some wedges (I love this ruffle pair of wedges that have amazing reviews) or keep it causal like I did with these white sandals! I wore them around with the girls at the playground and out running errands this week and they passed the comfort test! If you go between sizes, I would go up half. I love that this dress is such a statement that you don't need a ton of accessories; I think this straw tote would be so cute with this dress! 

The girls' dresses are SO sweet! I love the bold and bright tropical colors that are included in this dress. The little ruffle sleeve is such a precious detail. The material is light so it is good for summer days and the fit for them was true to size! It also comes in a blue color with white embroidery. They are just $8.44 making them such a value. Their bows can also be found at Walmart and come in a set of 40 for $13! I love that they are delicate and not too heavy.

Last Minute Father's Day Gift Ideas

{affiliate links are used in this post}
I wasn't planning on putting together a post on Father's Day gifts...but then Kris not so subtly sent me a list of things that he wanted for Father's Day or his birthday, ha! I actually totally appreciate the help - the worst is when they say they want nothing - or socks (although Kris swears by this brand)! So this post contains all items that he picked, items that I have either purchased for him or items I found online with great reviews! They also all arrive with 2 day or faster shipping at Amazon or Walmart.

30 Favorite Walmart Finds

Summer time means that often the girls will come along with me while we are running errands. With snacks in hand they are normally up for it :)! This last week Charlotte and I went to Walmart after dropping Avery off at cheerleading camp and spent almost an hour just walking around. I think it was a record for her, ha! I was looking for a wide variety of things for the house in addition to groceries so I was excited she was up for the morning shopping adventure! I wanted to put together some of my favorite finds from that shopping trip (and some items that I found online) for you! {affiliate links are used in this post} I included a link and description of each item below that can be found  at Walmart

1 // I love this Sofia Vergara off the shoulder white eyelet dress! It is the perfect summer LWD. The shoulder detail is right on trend and it also comes in several colors. I ordered this online and it fit me TTS - I typically always wear the Small 4/6 at Walmart.  $36.50

2 // The color of this ruffle cami dress is so pretty! I love the simple and chic fit. $15.50

3 // This adorable dress comes in several colors and is the perfect length making it appropriate for so many occasions!

4 // This $19 off the shoulder top is so vibrant! Love it with white jeans and heels for a date night!

5 // Chambray is one of my favorite fabrics for summer. This cold shoulder dress is such a pretty cut and would be great for date night to church! The size small fit me well! $34

6 // My store had this v-neck tee and I loved it! Great quality and several color options. This tee is $7.

7 // These white mules are perfect for summer! I love the perforation and pointed toe. They are on sale for just over $10. TTS or size up to the next half if you go between (ie: if you wear an 8.5 or 9 order a 9).

8 // Snakeskin is a huge trend for spring and summer, and I love that these snakeskin mules can be worn into fall as well!

9 // I wore these memory foam leopard sneakers to a birthday party today and they were so comfortable! They fit true to size (if you go between I would go up).

10 // These metallic sandals are a summer staple! Pair with some denim shorts and a t-shirt for an easy, cool look.

11 // A circle straw bag is the perfect summer accessory! It is fun and goes with so many different outfits.

12 // Whenever we travel I like to carry a cross body purse with essentials in addition to the giant mom bag that I carry, ha! This cross body bag is roomy enough to carry the essentials but not too large that it is cumbersome. I really like the camel tones.

13 // The denim and embroidery on this sweet dress is the cutest combination! I also love the ruffle sleeve. $8.44

14 // How precious is this mini pom pom tote! It is technically a bag for women, but I think the size would be so fun for Avery to carry and be able to pack all her things for a dinner out (aka stickers and crayons, ha!)

15 //My girls live in dresses like these all summer. They prefer dresses over shorts, but these are light, casual and comfortable for the playground! In addition to the comfort they are so cute, and a 2-pack for $9!

16 // Love these adorable sandals! Love the laser cut detail and the rose gold. Perfect for summer play. They are $12.

17 //  Ruffles will always be my favorite, ha! This cute top comes in several colors and patterns. I think it would be so pretty for play and dressing up!

18 // I love white mary jane sneakers for the girls. They can wear them with dresses or shorts - super versatile!

19 & 20 // We needed a few new pool floats this summer and these are so fun and affordable! I loved the giant cupcake ($14) and Charlotte liked the flamingo ($20)!

21 // This set of six bubble wands was the first thing that Charlotte saw when we walked into WalMart and she made sure we did not leave with out it, ha!

22 // My mixing bowl set was pretty much falling apart until I got this melamine set from The Pioneer Woman. It was $15 and comes with three bowls and their tops!

23 // I have had this set of acrylic containers for a year now and LOVE! I think they are affordable and helped me to organize my pantry!

24 // I saw this utensil holder in store. I really like how neutral it is making it blend with so many kitchens! It is under $10.

25 // This pom pom bathroom mat could not be cuter and is about $5! Love it for the girls bathroom.

26 & 27 // I love keeping canning jars on hand at home for a variety of reasons! Not only are they great for storing food and acting as vases for flowers, but also for organization! I bought this set of 12 jars to use in part for organizing our craft room - to put beads, glue sticks, etc in them! I will use these chalkboard labels to label each jar so it can be changed as the contents of the jar changes.

28 & 29 // I picked up this shampoo (and now want the conditioner too!) because I am trying to grow my hair out a bit. It has great reviews and I like it so far! It is also sulfate and paraben free, and under $5!

30 // Kris and I are on a major organization kick in the house and the girls have a ton of costume jewelry that they don't want to part with. So I ordered this jewelry organizer to hang in their closets and (hopefully) keep their jewelry organized!

Mommy & Me Matching Outfits

Today I'm so excited to be sharing mommy and me matching outfit ideas!  This post has been a long time coming; it is by far the most requested and I have been working on it for a while now. I love to match my girls (and for them to match when they allow it, ha!). I normally like for us to match in color tones and patterns versus outfits that exactly match. When we do have exactly matching outfits I will often wear a jean jacket or give the girls another layer to have some variation. 

So in this post I am sharing affordable outfit ideas by category and style. At the end of this post I will also share some additional resources for finding mommy and me looks!

50+ Easter Basket Ideas

Easter baskets have always been one of my favorite gifts to put together for the girls. I have been collecting things for their baskets for a few weeks and just put them together today. Now to hide them until Easter! I try to avoid including too many items that will just end up in the trash/donate pile right away and I also try to avoid a crazy amount of candy. But enough that I can "help" the girls eat it, ha! 

Here are some of my favorite things to include in their baskets: 

- Books. I always include a few in each Easter basket. These can range from children's devotionals to this book from Joanna Gaines.  

- Some clothing items like these seersucker shorts, a bunny purse, headbands, or a pair of sandals 

- A gift that involves them taking care of something or doing a craft. This year I chose more of a gardening theme and I got these mini grow kits. You could also do a bath bomb kit or a color your own 3-D puzzle

- New beach towels for the upcoming summer are something else I added this year. These mini towels are the perfect size for the kids. They can be monogrammed for summer camp! 

- Items for school like colored pens or a new water bottle with their favorite character - these are my favorite! I bought more expensive ones last year and they started leaking on the first day. These have held up perfectly all year!

- I also add some faux or fresh flowers to the side of their basket. The girls LOVE flowers and this is a way to make the basket even prettier! Here are 50+ non-candy ideas for Easter baskets! Simply click on the image to go straight to the item!
