Spring Weekend Style

Cheers to Friday, friends! 🥂 Who can believe we’re going to be wrapping up 26 Days of Spring Fashion tomorrow?!? I don’t know about you, but this style series flew by for me.

Today I’ve got a budget-friendly spring weekend look that’s perfect for wearing from the soccer field to the grocery store to an outdoor picnic with friends, and you aren’t going to believe where it’s from.

When Walmart reached out to me about taking part in their “We Dress America” campaign and sharing some Walmart fashion, I admit, I wasn’t so sure about it. I’ve never shopped for clothes at Walmart, and I wasn’t sure I could find anything that I feel good wearing and promoting.

But a lot of you have said you like it when I find budget-friendly options for the styles I normally wear, so I decided to accept the challenge and see what I could come up with.

I spent a lot of time combing through Walmart’s website, hunting down pieces to create an outfit that I would truly want to wear.

I was excited to find that in addition to Walmart’s own brands, they’ve recently began a partnership with Lord+Taylor and now carry those premium brands online.

That’s where I found this Karl Lagerfeld leather tote and my Lucky Brand bracelet and earrings.

It was nice to see some familiar brands that I already love and trust.

A cuff is my favorite style of bracelet because it’s one and done. You don’t have to mess with layering or matching up different pieces.

Another familiar brand I found at Walmart was Levi’s jeans. Levi’s has been having a moment lately, and I find they provide a really good marriage of style and value.

These are the Classic Mid Rise Skinny Jeans in Tinted Blue Sea. I sized up to a 10 to get a good fit in the waist, which I find I often need to do with Levi’s. They’re definitely not into the vanity sizing, but when you get the right size, they have a good fit and feel for the price point.

I ordered the medium length with the intent of cuffing them as I did here, and I love how that gives them the look of the cropped straight that is trending right now. I also think cuffing your jeans makes them look more casual and spring-like.

And this gently faded mid-indigo wash is also a nice one for spring and summer.

In fact, my photographer commented on exactly that when she saw this look. She was shocked to hear this outfit is from Walmart. She kept mentioning how good the jeans look and how nice and soft the top is.

Speaking of this top, I didn’t want to order only premium brands for this post. I wanted to be sure to try some of Walmart’s everyday brands and find some good bargains to recommend to you all, so I ordered a bunch of tops tees, sweaters, jeans, and shoes from their Time and Tru brand.

After vetting them all, this plaid button front top was my favorite of the lot. It’s surprisingly soft, and I like how it’s fully lined with a complementary color. For size reference, I’m wearing the medium.

The small fit, but barely, and I feel like this top is meant to fit more loosely, as shown here. I also anticipate that it might shrink some, so I wanted to be sure to have a little extra room.

It came already cuffed, and I love the contrasting solid peach fabric.

This top comes in a bunch of other solids and plaid color ways, and it retails for just $15.84!

I also really like these perforated slip-on sneakers for $14.88. They’re cushy and soft inside, and the styling is right on trend.

These shoes are perfect for wearing with casual jeans and shorts outfits, and at that price, you don’t have to be precious with them or worry about getting them dirty if you’re at an outdoor picnic or the soccer field this spring.

Overall, I have to say, Walmart is seriously upping their fashion game. I’m pleased with how this look turned out, and I don’t think anyone would ever guess the top, jeans, and shoes total just $70!

So what do you think? Would you like to see more Walmart fashion on my blog in the future?

  1. Very cute outfit!! This is right up my alley. I don’t comment very often either but it looks great on you and the price point doesn’t hurt. I really want to try out those slip on shoes. I wear that style often. Would enjoy seeing more posts similar to this.

  2. Looks great, but my concern is how will it hold up?  I find if I buy the cheaper stuff, it doesn’t hold up or last. I’d rather shop LOFT clearance and get good quality stuff that last years.  Just my opinion.  So, I don’t think I’d shop Walmart.  

  3. Oh my gosh, you made this budget friendly outfit seem so absolutely fabulous! As I get older I find it more challenging to look and feel as good in lower end items as I do in the premium brands, but you definitely made me want to try out this entire ensemble.
    Hope you have a super fun weekend getaway!

  4. Boy, what a sharp outfit, The top is so pretty. Out of all the straight legged jeans you’ve been in, these seem to fit you the best. They skim the body  without being too tight or too loose. 

  5. I can’t believe how good you look in this post. What you previously considered “spendy” or a “splurge” in the past is your common everyday go-to selection of clothing and accessories now. This is way out of a lot of your reader’s comfort range.

  6. OMG! This is too funny! I knew before I read the source of this fashion haul that you were going to say Walmart. I shop there weekly for groceries, etc. In the last year they have really expanded and improved on clothing. I have made some great purchases there and some because of fashion blogs. In fact today I purchased Lee Riders capris jeans from Walmart and I love them along with some other splurges – LOL! I would be thrilled to see more Walmart fashion from Walmart on your blog.

  7. I really like the jeans but not so  much the top. I think I just don’t love the front twist. I like the shoes. I purchased a similar pair a few months back at TJ Max and I have been seeing similar ones in more trendy stores and websites for a lot more than we paid. All in all, I would give Walmart a try!

  8. Love it! I always look through the clothes at Walmart when I shop there and often find good items. Check out the workout clothes too! I just bought today a pair of 7 inch compression type shorts with phone pocket on the legs. I had been looking everywhere for them and got at Walmart for under $10,

  9. Awesome post for Walmart! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
    Would you say that the premium brands online are priced below what you’d find in the L & T store, or equal? Like what’s the draw to ordering the pieces from Walmart vs. the other places? 
    Thank you for this! 

  10. Thanks for showing us some options with a great price point!  I thought your outfit was totally on trend and couldn’t believe it was from Wall-Mart…….I’m going to check out their website and see what other sweet finds there are!  

  11. I got my shoes and shirt today from Walmart! I am properly impressed! The shoes are very comfy and the shirt is too! Fits just like it should and hides the problem stomach area! 😀
