Today’s post is sponsored by Walmart and ShopStyle! The product selections are my own, and I only highlight and promote pieces that I truly love. Thank you for supporting the brands that support Sheaffer Told Me To!
Happy Monday, everybody!
I am crazy excited about today’s post.
And you might not know it yet, but y’all need to go ahead and get excited too.
Because Walmart has upped their fashion game, y’all.
Yep, that’s right.
I said Walmart.
Get ready to be super impressed.
I mean, we all already knew that Walmart carried clothes and that their pricing was always super affordable, but here’s what we didn’t know, or at least I didn’t know…You can find some affordable pieces at Walmart that are actually DARLING. Not just kind of cute. DARLING.
And I’m going to prove that to you today.
And you can bet your boots that I’ll now be checking out new online arrivals on the regular. I might even sneak off to a store on occasion. (I had to head into the store to grab some sunglasses for the flat lay you will see below, and I also walked out with these frayed white denim shorts and these cuffed denim shorts. They are both awesome. And they are both under $15.)
When preparing for today’s post, I spent hours looking around online, getting familiar with the brands, and figuring out what direction I wanted to go with this post. I was pleasantly surprised at all they had to offer, and I actually had a lot of fun scrolling to find some real gems. You can click HERE to check out their We Dress America campaign for the whole family and HERE to browse women’s spring trends.
I placed a huge order (it had some hits and some misses), found some pieces that I absolutely loved, and decided to combine two of the most popular trends right now (STRIPES and CAMO) to create a couple of outfits for you today.
I love stripes.
I love camo.
And I really love stripes and camo together.
CAMO AND STRIPES LOOK #1
For look #1, I decided to combine a striped sweater with a camo weekender bag. This will definitely be an outfit I throw on for a day of errands when we are headed out of town to the ranch in the afternoon.
striped sweater / turquoise earrings / similar black sunglasses / skinny jeans /bracelets / camo bag / white scrunch back sneakers
Let’s break the outfit down.
The jeans really surprised me because I was so impressed with the fit. I knew I loved the color wash when I saw them online, but the fit is what eventually sold me. They are slimming (very skinny throughout the thighs all the way down through the calves) and hit me at just the right point on my ankle.
They do run small. I’m always a 4, and I definitely needed a 6 in these. When I took the 4s out of the box I immediately knew they wouldn’t work. Luckily I had read some reviews and knew I might need to size up, so I had already ordered the 6 too!
The jeans are from their Time and Tru line, and I liked a lot from this line!
There’s no ifs, ands or buts about it….this striped sweater is darling. It’s from the collaboration with Ellen DeGeneres!
I just love a lightweight sweater with a relaxed fit. There’s a really cute split high low hem, but it’s the extra color stripes at the bottom of each sleeve that really take it to the next level for me. The additional sunshine yellow and hot pink stripes are definitely a designer touch, but they don’t demand a designer price tag. The stripes are also smaller on the sleeves and the back, which also is a nice design element (which you can see best in the picture 2 pics down). I’m wearing a small in the sweater, so I think it’s true to size. The sweater also comes in a really pretty grey colorway too.
The earrings are a beautiful turquoise, but they come in 5 other colors including a bright hot pink that I need. And get this, they are only $4.99.
The bag is going to be great for travel. It holds more than you can imagine, and I know I’ll be using it for sheets and towels when we head to the ranch. I’m also thrilled to have a cute bag that I can now pack full of clothes, shoes, and other bags on days I’m shooting for the blog! The cross body strap (seen above) is very functional, and I love the hot pink accents.
Click HERE if you love the idea of a camo bag, but you don’t need something quite so large. This little backpack is awesome and has the same pink and camo colorway.
The sneakers are a good alternative for another brand of white scrunch back sneakers (that you see me wear a lot). I got my regular size, but I’m thinking sizing down a 1/2 would be a good idea.
The entire outfit is bright, colorful, happy, and an incredible value.

CAMO AND STRIPES LOOK #2
I wanted to give y’all an additional look with the camo and stripes combo, so I switched out the camo bag for a camo utility jacket.
striped sweater / camo jacket / turquoise earrings / skinny jeans /bracelets / white scrunch back sneakers
I’ve shown camo utility jackets on the blog a couple of times now, so I was super excited to find this one for such a reasonable price of $30! If you’ve been interested in a camo jacket, but didn’t want to spend a lot on a bold piece like this, the reduced price tag might push you over the edge!
And let’s take another look at the bold and colorful stripes on each sleeve of the sweater. So stinkin’ cute.

If the camo jacket isn’t your jam, other camo options for you could be this super cute camo sweatshirt for only $20 or this camo skirt for just $18

And before you go, I also wanted to provide you with a little beach/pool inspiration.
Are you dying? Because I’m DYING.
HOW CHIC IS THIS SUIT! AND THE HAT!

Here are some other great items I found while browsing:
So….real question….are y’all as surprised as I am? There’s no denying that Walmart is doing a heck of a job proving to all of us that it has become a real destination for reasonable fashionable finds. And I’ll tell you this….although initially shocked…I’m here for it! I hope you were as impressed with the clothes and the prices as I am. A huge thank you to Walmart and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post.

Girl!!! I’m impressed!! You look darling in those outfits!
Lauren Meyers says
I’ve been seeing lots of other bloggers do Walmart posts, and I was wondering if you would too. I’m so glad you did! I was skeptical when I saw the first post, but after seeing so many posts, I’m impressed. I’m going to grab the navy striped sweater and the sneakers. Thinking about that swimsuit too!
Hi, Lauren! I’m totally with you and was also 100% surprised with their options. Glad you enjoyed the post! xoxo
I’m a die hard Nordstrom shopper, but this post has me excited to shop Walmart! I love a really good budget friendly find.
Hey, Heather! I’m definitely still a Nordstrom die hard too, but a girl likes options. 🙂
Shay Shull says
I mean…WOW! Who knew?!? I thought everything was absolutely adorable!
I’ve never shopped at Walmart before, but I just put the entire swimsuit outfit in my cart. The prices are great, so I’m interested to check out the quality.
Hey, Nicole! I should have made a way bigger deal out of this, but I was blown away by the quality! When shopping online I was super excited about everything I was adding to my cart, but I was still worried that when I actually received the items I wouldn’t be impressed. Quite the opposite in fact! I was blown away by the quality! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Am I the only one who thought this was an April Fool’s joke? Had to scroll all the way to comments to check ?
I’m laughing so hard, Molly! It’s no joke! The outfits really are from Walmart. And I really am excited about what I found! 🙂 xoxo
Oh, hey Walmart!! Look at how cute this all was! Love it all!
Did I miss the sizing info somewhere?
Hi, Nat! Oh my goodness! I think I left it out. Sizing information follows: small in sweater, 4 in jeans, medium in jacket (I often size up in jackets, so it’s true to size for me). I would recommend sizing down a 1/2 in the sneakers! So sorry I left it out! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
OH….and a medium in the swimsuit and the braided sandals are true to size!
I love it all! Walmart for the WIN!! ??
Wonderful post! I just purchased the camo bag and a swimsuit tanki,
So glad you loved it, Denise! I had so much fun with it! Xoxo
Jennifer Maynard says
I started buying their Time and Tru line last year and have been so impressed. I found several darling swimsuits for my teenager that was cute and appropriate!
Hey, Jennifer! Yes, that particular line is good! In the future, I’ll be doing a lot of searching for Time and Tru and the Ellen brand! xoxo
Love this post and your selections!! I actually bought the sneakers and the Camo backpack last week! I may need to get the striped sweater, so cute!! Keep these posts coming and thanks for your hard work!! You are my personal shopper!!
That backpack is CUTE! And yes, you probably need the sweater, Gretchen. 😉
Finally a post for us budget friendly babes! Thanks so much! excuse me while I go load up my cart!
Thanks for the feedback, Amber! So happy to hear you loved it! xoxo 🙂
So cute. I find that when I purchase jeans from certain retailers the denim has a really distinct smell. Do you know what I’m talking about? I assume it’s from the dye? But it’s impossible to get out and I’ve not been able to wear certain jeans because of it. If I am not crazy and you know what I’m talking about, I’d love to hear your ideas on getting rid of that odor. I’ve never had the problem at retailers like Nordstrom, but places like Kohl’s, Old Navy and Target have been problematic. I’ve never tried Walmart. Thanks! 🙂
Hi, Arika! I’ve had readers say this about black jeans before, although my black jeans don’t have an odor! I just went and smelled my Walmart jeans, and them seem to be odor free! 🙂 xoxo
Katie Allred says
Will you do an updated post after you’ve worn and washed the items a few times? I’m totally skeptical that the items will last… I have that issue with old navy for myself. I like something then I wash it and it never fits the same and I don’t dry most of my clothes… I’m just really curious of the long term quality!
That’s a great idea! I will, Katie! xoxo

Thanks for doing the research for us Sheaffer! I am such a bargain shopper and was really happy to see your Walmart post! I ordered the sweater and the camo jacket! It is supposed to arrive on Thursday (that is some fast shipping!). Keep the bargain store reviews coming! 🙂
I bought a sweater dress from WM and got SO many compliments on it. I also had good luck with a maxi skirt that I ordered. I definitely need to check them out more. Thanks!
