Spring has been on my mind for weeks, which means that I’ve been stocking up on warm weather clothes and layers since none of my spring and summer wardrobe from last year still fits. My daughter has a bit of the same problem, since the child is crazy tall and grows like a weed.
So when Walmart offered me a chance to shop for spring fashion for my family, I didn’t hesitate.
With a $50 budget, I started in the women’s department, knowing that would probably take the bulk of my money. I tried on a bunch of items, including cute lace dresses in great colors and a lace peplum top, but frankly, I’m all peplum-ed out. I settled on this awesome maxi dress.
There were a LOT of maxi dresses, but I’m chesty enough to require a supportive bra, and a lot of them had cutouts or very narrow straps. I chose this one because I loved the colors and stripes, but also because the top offered solid coverage. This is the kind of dress I would wear any day of the week for almost any occasion, from running errands to going to church. The fabric is a nice weight â€” not too light and not too heavy â€” so I’ll have to see how it holds up to washing. This is definitely going to be a spring & summer staple for me, and at just $15.44, I can afford to go back and get it in a few more colors.
I also grabbed a set of beaded bracelets to match my dress and a Faded Glory scarf to use as a headwrap, because we all have those days when we just don’t feel like doing our hair. There was actually a really great selection of lightweight scarves in both solid colors and patterns priced at just $6.97. I’ll also be going back for more of those 🙂
My husband was easy. He chose this Bob Marley graphic tee about 2 minutes after he started looking. What can I say? You can’t go wrong with a Bob Marley tee for a reggae singer.
While I LOVE must husband when he’s on his suit and tie…ummm, stuff…this is how he dresses every day. In the spring and summer, khaki shorts and sneakers are a staple, and he can’t get enough of graphic tees.
My daughter recently hit another growth spurt, and suddenly everything in her closet is too short and/or too tight. I decided to avoid length problems altogether with a romper designed to slouch slightly on top. And because I know she’s prone to feeling chilly if we’re in an air-conditioned car or building for more than 5 seconds, I also grabbed this chambray top. In addition to this styling, I can think of at least half a dozen other ways she can wear it, which means it’s more than worth the $11.94 we paid for it.
Overall, I was pretty impressed with the available selection for all of us. As usual, it took a little hunting to find the gems in my store, but I still found some items that will be solid parts of our wardrobe for at least the next few months.
