Happy Saturday friends! For today’s post, I wanted to share a little something different. If I post on weekends, it’s usually regarding sales or new arrivals. Instead of a ‘Saturday Sales’ post, I thought I would share some new arrivals under $50! Most of you know my big girl job is a pharmacist for a retail company, however I’ve never really talked about who I work for. Maybe for privacy purposes, or job protection, but I have nothing to hide and think you should know – I’ve worked for Walmart Pharmacy for the past (almost) 9 years. And the reason I feel like that’s important to share is I’ve been pretty impressed with their new line of clothes lately.
Recently, Walmart re-branded their clothing lines in order to compete with the likes of Target and Amazon and created the women’s line called Time and Tru. I’ve noticed many of the bigger bloggers collaborate with Walmart to spread the word and share their new line, but it wasn’t until I noticed in store some of their new arrivals that my attention was peaked. I was actually running an event in the middle of the store (for the pharmacy), and since we stand out and talk to customers for several hours in the middle of the store, I couldn’t help but notice all the clothes staring at me for hours on end. ☺️
I put together a post of some of their newest fall arrivals to share what I’m talking about! I mean, c’mon – would you expect the visual I created below to be from Walmart?! I’m pretty impressed! And the shoes – most are under $20 – and those white sneakers with the leopard detail are now on my wish list! Most items come in multiple color options also!
leopard flats | moto jacket | hobo bag | plaid shirt
leopard sneakers | burgundy loafers | thermal peplum | denim | sweater
studded mules | wedge booties
Hi friends! Working a 12 hour shift today, so just popping in to share some outfits from work this past week ~ I hope you had a great one!
*side note: my top is short-sleeve ~ I purchased in store, so I guess Florida has a different version from online? The same top in long sleeves is linked below.
top: LOFT | pants: Old Navy | flats: Sam Edelman (old) – newest version
earrings: Target | bracelet: Kate Spade
sweater: J.Crew Factory | skirt: LOFT | flats: Sam Edelman
necklace: J.Crew Factory | bracelet: J.Crew Factory (old) – option, option
top: H&M (old) – love this option ~ other color on my wish list! | jeans: Express (old) – very similar
flats: Old Navy | cardigan: J.Crew (old) – option, option | necklace: Kendra Scott (old) – newer version
Fell in love with this kelly green sweater the second it hit stores! It comes in several other (neutral) color options, but the green struck me as different for this time of year – and I love it! The button neck can be left up to keep warm, but also folds down for a trendy look. The inside is fleece lined and very soft. While us Florida kids won’t be wearing this for a couple months, it’s another ideal buy for our winters ~ throw on over a tee during the mornings and evenings, and un-layer in the afternoons. Currently 40% off!

If I had to pick an outfit that represented the perfect fall basics, this would be it. Distressed skinny jeans, comfy tunic-like sweater, cognac booties, fun earrings, and a pop of something (leopard clutch in this case). Not to mention the perfect blend of neutrals. I found this sweater in store this past week on a whim and couldn’t resist – the ‘oatmeal’ speckled blend is a perfect mix of browns, grey, and a hint of black. It’s a lightweight material also, so easily layered over a long sleeve striped tee or throw a vest over top. The mock neck also adds an extra touch. If black jeans aren’t your jam, switch them out for dark grey, burgundy, or a dark wash blue denim – all work well! Heck throw on grey or black booties also – they all work because this sweater is awesome like that. 😁

**On a side note – did you guys know Old Navy is separating from the GAP and Banana Republic (and other brands owned by GAP)? This was mentioned to me by the sales associate at Old Navy last week. I knew GAP had been failing for quite awhile (honestly.. they just need someone to step up their design studio like Old Navy has), but I was shocked to hear they aren’t just closing the company altogether. Instead, since Old Navy has been so successful, they are separating them out completely from the other brands as their own company…. to allow them to “thrive separately.” I’m not incredibly business savvy, so I’m sure there is a good reason (perhaps for stock purposes), but I’m still a little confused by the venture. Banana and GAP will then be represented by their own new line. I guess I’m a little frustrated as a customer because all I was hearing from the sales associate was “you may have to apply for a new credit card” (I have a Banana card only), similarly to when The Limited sold out. I like that my rewards and payments are all kept together. So we will see. As a customer, I hope they keep it as seamless as possible, especially if it’s the best venture for all brands.
This sweater is incredibly soft and comfortable! One of many new fall arrivals, and I’m trying to be choosy since I only get a month or two to wear all of my winter favorites down here! 😝 I made the mistake of selling all of my winter wardrobe when we first moved down here to FL, and we had a relatively warm winter a couple year ago, and my oh my – I was regretting it last winter when it got colder! Jokes on me I’m sure, but I was wearing the same few warm pieces I owned over and over – this year I wanted to scoop up all the lightweight favorites since 100% acrylic and wool are too heavy (watch… it will be 90 degrees all winter lol). I love the colors in this sweater also – perfect match for cognac accessories! There is also a lilac striped option as well.

I think all of the south is melting, literally. Lol. I know it gets hot in Texas, Florida, you name it during the summer months – but usually mid-September it starts to cool off in the mornings and evenings, hot during the day, and if you get rain, you might need a light sweater. Yeah… where is that weather? After the hurricane blew by, it was stifling out (we are talking a low in the 80s + humidity!). Since then it’s gotten a smidge better, but still uncomfortable. Outfit-wise I’m soaking up all heat in my old summer outfits!
I’ll have to save the new fall finds for flatlays, or maybe try-on photos for now, but I do want to keep showing some summer clothing pieces as everything is on clearance right now! Including this chambray romper which I’ve gotten so many compliments on! Variable sizes are left, but all sizes are left in the olive version which is perfect for fall!

Sometimes, you just want to throw it all together and hope it works! Whatcha think? My leopard scarf might be a tad too light in color (its old) to bring out the taupe in the booties, but the idea was to throw a lot of gray print together and see how well it blended. Without the scarf, I love, love the gray leopard print matched with gray jeans, taupe booties, and a darker camo jacket! This will definitely be an #ootd for me later this year, I just need to find a new scarf. 😁

jeans: Express (old) – love these | jacket: Express (old) – awesome option
scarf: Nordstrom (old) – option, on my wish list
Who’s had their first PSL of the season?! I know it’s not everyone’s favorite, but I do love it this time of year! I haven’t been able to enjoy my first one yet, but I usually try to grab one every couple of weeks while they are in season. That being said – my corduroy skirt is a long time favorite I bring out every fall season. It’s honestly a little tight on me these days 🙈, and I’m looking for a replacement, so I’ll save you a mirror pic and reserve it for flatlays-only.😁
Since corduroy is so popular right now, I couldn’t resist bringing it out already – even in August! There are several variations of corduroy skirts available right now. Both Old Navy and H&M have their own versions in various shades available, and I have my eye on the rust color from ON and the ivory from H&M. I’ll link below! Pants also!
skirt: LOFT (old) – see options below
top: J.Crew Factory (my color is old) – newest colors, option, love this option!
necklace: J.Crew Factory | pumps (old) – option | clutch (old) – option

Hi all! Today I wanted to share one of the prettiest transition pieces I could find – this awesome ruffled hem top! It actually comes in 6 color/print options, but I was immediately drawn to this “paint splatter” print. It has an awesome mix of burgundy, blue, white, mint green, and a pale yellow – on top of the pretty pink color. I went down one size per sizing recommendations and it fits perfectly. My second favorite print is the black/white gingham – which actually was my first pick… until the pink drew me in! 💕 It’s hard to find tops that will go with about any color pants, and this one fits the bill with the color combination. Not to mention it’s perfect to layer under a cardigan.
