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.
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?
