Happy Friday ladies. I have a surprise for you today…that pleasantly surprised me too! Some of you are retired or on a fixed income so your clothing budget is limited. Many have asked me to style more budget-friendly casual outfits so when Walmart asked me to try their new collections and share it with you, I decided to go for it so this post is sponsored by Walmart and ShopStyle
I haven’t purchased clothes at Walmart before so didn’t know what to expect but I can honestly tell you I’m impressed with the quality of the clothes and accessories I’m styling.
Because I’m a fan of high rise jeans for muffin top control, I started with this classic five-pocket skinny jean by Ev1 from Ellen Degeneres. They’re made from a 63% cotton, 33% polyester, 4% spandex blend, have lots of stretch. I ordered a 10 thinking they might be snug but these fit more like a straight jean on me and I could have worn my regular size 8. Ev1 from Ellen DeGeneres makes an entire line for Walmart.
I topped it with this classic button-up by Time and Tru. It’s lightweight cotton in stripes the color of a fresh spearmint candy. This is such a happy color for spring and will look great with white jeans or shorts all through the summer. The Walmart website shows this shirt tied in front. You can also wear it straight down or tucked in. I like it tied this way and wear shirts this way often because it shows some leg which helps me look taller while covering my backside in skinnier pants.
These Circus by Sam Edelman sandals have a soft woven top that avoids my bunion problem area so will be comfy all summer as my feet swell in the heat. These slides have a soft woven top and will work perfectly with shorts or a sundress as the weather heats up.
These are available in four colors, sized 5-11. They’re super comfy so I ordered two colors. Walmart has a large selection of Circus for Sam Edelman which are stylish, affordable and comfy. I’ve also ordered their espadrilles and will let you know how they fit.
I don’t usually wear boho clothes but I do love the fun look in earrings. I’ve always been careful to avoid heavy earrings which do no one’s earlobes any favor. These tasseled earrings add to the summer vibe and are light as a feather.
I love round bags and totes. They add a fun shape and actually hold a lot. I finished my look with this Time and Tru straw circle tote. It comes in Aqua or Coral stripe plus you can flip it around if you want a more neutral look. The straw is soft, sturdy and has long handle inside so you can wear over your shoulder.
