Happy Wednesday, Everybody!
I’m so excited about today’s post. Like I’m practically giddy.
I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’ve been all about dresses this year. Spring and summer dresses have been my GO TO. Yep, your girl who used to wear denim shorts all summer long has definitely taken a liking to dresses. I’ve found that they are so easy to throw on, I’m loving how comfortable they are, and they make me feel totally pulled together with little to no effort.
Well, today I’m highlighting 6 dresses that are ALL UNDER $40!
And you’re never going to believe this, but 3 of the dresses are under $20, and two of them are under $15.
I’ve got one more surprise before we get started: ALL OF TODAY’S DRESSES ARE FROM WALMART!!! If you haven’t checked out their fashion department yet, you really need to! I have no doubt you will be amazed at the incredible clothes and fabulous styles they are now carrying! If you follow other influencers, you probably know this already, because the clothes that are being featured by everybody are DARLING. SERIOUSLY, Y’ALL. Walmart has entered the chat.
STRIPED T-SHIRT DRESS ($18)
This t-shirt dress is super soft, incredibly comfortable, and crazy cute! It’s hard to believe that it’s only $18. It comes in 6 color choices, but this punchy pink and coral stripe was a no brainer for me. I’M IN LOVE WITH THE COLOR COMBO AND THE STRIPES. It’s just so fun! For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
Low-key style with maximum impact. So easy, like slipping on your favorite tee, this dress gives off effortless cool girl vibes. The best part? Besides being super soft, this T-shirt dress works well with sneakers for casual-day fun or wedge heels for a dressier spin.
I’ll definitely be wearing it with sneakers in the future.
The fit isn’t body conscious, but it’s not boxy either. It’s just a perfect relaxed fit.
The multi-stripe straw tote has room to hold all of your daily stuff for traveling, weekend getaways and other activities in daily life. It has 2 slip pockets inside to keep small belongings organized, and the colored stripes on the bag enable it to go with so many different outfits.
And great news! The sandals are on super sale for 50% OFF. I have the “almond patent” and find that they go with everything, but I love the “saddle” and the “wild orchid” as well. If between sizes, size up a 1/2.
This outfit is effortless, but super cute and perfect for a day of running around town, lunch with the girls, whatever!
WHITE EYELET DRESS ($13)
And get this…
THE DRESS IS $13. Yes, I said THIRTEEN DOLLARS.
What in the world? I mean, it is regularly $18, but it’s on rollback for $13.
Look how pretty the eyelet fabric is!
It’s got a split neck, dainty little ruffle sleeves, it has pockets (woohoo!), and it’s FULLY LINED!
All for $13.
I don’t understand it, but I dig it.
It definitely looks more expensive than it is. I would pay $100 for this dress and not even bat an eye. It’s really well made!
This rose quartz ring totally surprised me. It’s a beautiful piece of jewelry, definitely worth the $15 price tag. The stone reminds me of Monica Vinader pieces, a quality jewelry designer that’s carried at Nordstrom.
It’s seriously gorgeous.
I’m obsessed with this dress and highly recommend it.
SHIRT DRESS ($34)
This mini dress has a big personality. The color palette alone is on fire! And it’s a total steal at just $34.
Scoop’s Collared Shirt Dress is here to heat up your cool girl style. It pops with vibrant color and tons of detail, featuring a button front, side pockets, and stylish scrunch sleeves. The flirty silhouette hits right above the knee, elongating the leg with a slight flare for added shape. Sexy, sweet, and summer-ready, this dress is sure to sit at the top of your wish list.
It has FANTASTIC REVIEWS.
For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
It’s also got a mommy and me dress available that matches it!
The dress is 63% Cotton/34% Nylon/3% Spandex, so it’s definitely got some give to it. I do find the collar to be a little bit awkward, but I got over it.
TIERED T-SHIRT DRESS ($15)
Do you want an easy and breezy dress that you can just throw on and wear just about anywhere?
THIS IS YOUR DRESS.
And get this, it’s only $15.
It’s 100% cotton and just a perfect summer dress. The subtle tulip sleeves are so pretty, and the tiers are casual summer perfection.
Designed with easy pullover styling, you will be ready in an instant while the tiered bodice gives you a put-together finish. The best part? This dress is complete with two side pockets for even more convenience.
For size reference, I’m wearing a medium. If I had a smaller chest, a small would work because the rest of the sizing is generous, but I need the room up top.
It’s great worn with a simple necklace.
But I think it’s FABULOUS worn with a fun statement necklace. (The necklace is highlighted on the collage on last Monday’s post.)
This is a dress that I imagine a lot of you will end up grabbing in at least 2 colors. There are several other colors that are perfect for summer and several that will transition great into fall as well. Throw a denim jacket on over it and it’s perfect for cooler temps. And can I remind you that it’s $15?!?
TWO MORE DRESSES
I had two more dresses arrive yesterday, so I quickly grabbed some mirror selfies so you would have a chance to see them too.
This colorblock midi dress is $19.98. I love the flouncy shape and the color block color palette, but I would prefer a cotton blend to 100% polyester. The spaghetti stripes can’t be adjusted for length, but I do like the whimsical ties. The square neck, the tiers and the midi length are all flattering. And it has pockets! For size reference, I’m wearing a small. If on vacation, this would be a perfect dress to go from the pool or the beach straight to dinner. It’s soooo cute and has #plentyofroomfortacos.
This smocked midi dress has mixed reviews, but I really like it. First of all, the color is gorgeous. It’s a vibrant orange that will look killer with gold jewelry and a tan. The sleeves can be worn on the shoulder or off, but I prefer on. The smocked bodice makes it look high end, but it’s only $36. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
And because I’m dress crazy and literally couldn’t help myself, I rounded up some more dresses, all $40 and under!
Many of them are from Scoop, one of the newest brands at Walmart that you can find HERE. Scoop used to be an iconic New York City boutique, but the store closed its doors a few years ago, and now it’s back as a Walmart-exclusive brand. Scoop is known for fun and flirty pieces, fabulous colors and patterns, and pieces that don’t break the bank! I’m seriously impressed with the brand.
1) 3/4 sleeve mini dress ($34) / 2) 1 shoulder maxi ($34) / 3) flutter sleeve dress ($13) / 4) chambray flared dress ($30) / 5) eyelet midi dress ($40) / 6) gingham dress ($15) / 7) bow back midi dress ($40) with a matching mommy and me dress HERE / 8) puff sleeve midi dress ($38)
SWIMSUITS (Both Under $25!)
And I know this post is all about dresses, but a couple of swimsuits caught my eye, and I couldn’t resist highlighting them. I think this one-piece animal print crinkle swimsuit is incredibly chic. I mean, IT HAS A BELT! I feel like it looks like a suit you would get at a high end swimwear boutique and pay like $150 for, but this one is ONLY $15. For size reference, I got a medium.
With an elegant scoop neck and flattering high-leg silhouette, this women’s bathing suit is highlighted by a belt that is accented by an organic shape resin ring front and center. The beautiful allover animal print on textured fabric is the perfect finishing touch for the pool or the beach!
This bandeau swimsuit is my favorite style. I think the strapless full coverage fit looks best on my body type, and I love the ruching on the sides (it’s so flattering!). There’s a removable strap that I will use, but I also love having the strapless option. This one is just so fun and tropical! For size reference, I got a medium.
This molded tote bag is inspired by the famous Bogg Bags. Most Bogg bags are larger with a bit more structure, but this one still has the look. It’s made of “Eva” (like the Birkenstocks I featured last week), so this bag is super sturdy, waterproof, and can be easily cleaned.
And here’s a close up look at the accessories, bags, and sandals you saw highlighted throughout today’s post…
CARTER’S SWIM TRUNKS, FLIP FLOPS, and BEACH TOWELS
When shopping for myself for this post, I couldn’t help but grab a couple of things for Carter as well. I also grabbed a 4 pack of beach towels.
Carter is a huge fan of the flip flops. They are so comfy and they look cool too. True to size.
The swim trunks are great, but they really need to be bigger for Carter to be comfortable. These are 12/14. They really need to be 14/16, but the sizes topped out at 12/14. There are so many patterns to choose from!
I had to include this one because Chris and Carter were having some fun at my expense. He was doing various poses and declaring “Sheaffer Told Me To!” with each one. Haha!
This 4-pack of towels is an incredible deal, and they are made of 100% USA cotton! They are soooo soft!
100% high-quality combed ring spun cotton velour makes our towels feel soft and luxurious on your skin. This beach towel has the perfect combination of thick, plush velour on one side and cotton terry loops on the other to provide the ultimate experience for both you and your family. The generous 30×60 size makes this versatile towel the perfect fit for every occasion – the pool, beach, lake and at home in the bathroom. Easy to wash and dry as well as compact, making this towel convenient and enjoyable.
Here’s another pair of trunks, I thought these would be perfect for the 4th.
So, I have to ask. Were y’all totally blown away by these dresses? Isn’t it crazy how affordable they all are?!? You could actually grab all 6 dresses that I wore in today’s post, and you would only spend $136. FOR SIX DRESSES. If you get the two t-shirt dresses and the eyelet dress, you would only spend $46. FOR THREE DRESSES!
And what about the swimsuits!!! You could grab the swimsuits and only spend $37 on both.
Click HERE to check out summer fashion for the entire family. I’m going to check it all out too, because I’m thinking if I loved the women’s lines this much, I’m bound to love the men’s and boy’s too.
A huge thank you to Walmart and Shopstyle for the super affordable and on trend pieces and for sponsoring this post.
