Hi, friends! Happy first Monday of summer to everybody! We are only a handful of days into summer over here, but we’ve already found our groove. Chilling during the summer months is like riding a bike, and we immediately remembered that we are reallllly good at summer. The first couple of weeks our only plans are to take it easy. Lots of chilling, swimming, grilling out, board games, a soccer game here and there, and family movies. None of Carter’s camps start until the 3rd week of summer, so until then, we are living it up! We like to stay up late, and then Carter likes to sleep in like a teenager. I finally woke him up at 11:30 on Friday to which he declared “I’m so happy and cozy.” Yep, we are good at summer.
Speaking of Summer…
We talked about Walmart a couple of times back in April, and many of y’all were just as pumped about the amazing deals as I was. I mean, we all love a great deal, right? I had a lot of fun doing those April posts, so I was thrilled to sign on for their We Dress America Summer series.
The We Dress America campaign has already begun to ramp up for Summer, and they are continuing to hit it out of the park with their pieces and of course their prices. And gauging from the comments section on the blog and on social media, I’m not the only one that has been pleasantly surprised at the clothes they have to offer. Y’all definitely are too!
I received so many encouraging and supportive comments about how you were happy to have such budget friendly finds featured on the blog. And when I asked for READER REQUESTS on instastories, Walmart consistently showed up as a reader request. I’d never received Walmart requests before, so I took that to mean that all of those requests were the result of a successful Walmart shopping experience after my first couple of posts!
WE DRESS AMERICA SUMMER SERIES

As part of this summer series, we were encouraged to show our favorite clothing picks in some of our favorite places. So you know I immediately thought of the beloved family ranch. It’s our favorite place on earth and we absolutely cherish the times we spend there. We snapped these pics while spending Memorial Day there with friends and family. Since I knew I wanted the ranch to be a part of the campaign, I looked for casual shorts and tops. I was very pleased with my finds.
The outfits I ended up with for this first post are totally casual, really cute, and super affordable.
side tie blouse / sunglasses / white frayed hem denim shorts / striped tote / metallic and cognac slide sandals
The blouse, shorts, bag, and sandals come in at a whopping $72. SEVENTY TWO dollars for all 4 pieces.
The side tie on this top is such a nice design detail. I’m wearing a small, but it’s still quite oversized, so it definitely needs the little tie to give the top some shape. I would actually suggest sizing down in the top. It comes in several colorways, and I’m highlighting 2 of them today.
These white denim shorts shorts are FABULOUS. They’ve got a bit of stretch, the fit is cute and comfy, and they ring in at just $13.92! They aren’t see thru, and I love the frayed hem. I sized up to a 6 in these, and I like the bit of extra room the size up gives. I don’t like my denim shorts too tight!
The sandals are such a great find. I chose the metallic and cognac combination, and I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how much they go with. They can be easily dressed up or down, and they are quite comfy. I found them to be true to size.
The sunglasses are well priced and totally cool. I have them in tortoise, but they also come in black.
AND Y’ALL! THE BAG! I teased this bag on last Friday’s post (in a flat lay) because I just couldn’t wait to show it!
It was a steal at $34, but it’s been marked down to $22 and I just can’t get over it. The wide blue and white stripe is totally chic, and the braided handles are so pretty. This bag is DARLING.
The other accessories are adorable, but they aren’t sold online, so you need to check out the accessories aisle next time you are in store. The bracelet stack is under $6 and the earrings are under $5. Both are the Time and Tru brand.

I ordered the navy stripe to show you, and it’s such an awesome bag! The woven straw…the leather handles…it’s all beautifully made! Click HERE to buy the navy stripe seen below.
Ladies. This is a fabulous bag.
This outfit follows the same outfit formula as above, and the shirt is the striped version of the same oversized side tie blouse.
side tie blouse / sunglasses / cuffed denim shorts / straw circle tote / metallic and cognac slide sandals
And the denim shorts are still under $14! The pair above were frayed hem, but these are a cuffed hem with mild distressing. They are a different style, but they are still stretchy and comfy. Again, I decided to go up a size in these to make sure they were super comfortable. #missionaccomplished
You can see here how the top is a very relaxed fit.
This exact bag is sold out in this color, but you can find two other great color combos HERE. I actually showed one of the colorblock options back in April.
Here I am standing on the front porch of the Circle S ranch house. Do you see the brand?
Here’s an up close of all the accessories. Again, the earrings and bracelets are only sold in store.

I’m one of those people you talked about in the post. I had never shopped at Walmart for clothes before (I don’t even shop there for my groceries), and since you started posting about them I’ve bought the navy striped sweater you talked about awhile ago and the white denim shorts. I absolutely love them both and am so impressed with both the cuteness factor and the quality! Today I grabbed the tote and the sandals. Thanks for these posts!
All of these finds are absolutely adorable! Love it all!
I love the front and side tie shirts for summer; it gives some interest to an outfit since you can’t usually wear a sweater or jacket (at least not in the southeast!). The ones you’re wearing are really cute and I like that they’re a little roomier to keep you cool. Is the stripe one opaque or does it need a cami under it? So many summer shirts in light colors are see through and the extra shirt underneath just gets too hot.
Hi, Kelly! The striped one does not require a cami! So happy you like the finds! xoxo
Walmart has really stepped it up! I have the first top that you’re wearing and I love it. I had to size down one and maybe could have gone down another. Now I need the white shorts to go with it! I do feel like their clothes run small. I got the cutest ruffled swimsuit cover, too. I’m typically a L or XL, but I sometimes have to size up to XXL. I don’t enjoy that! LOL

These outfits are darling!! I have and love that striped bag…and now I need those sandals, too!!
Shawnee Peacock says
I bought the white shorts over the weekend and LOVE them!!
Love these outfits. Are these items online only or in stores too?
Hi, April! It depends on your Walmart! Both pairs of shorts, both tops, and all the jewelry were at my local Walmart (even though I ordered everything online). I did not see the bags and sandals in store. Hope this helps! xoxo

Okay, I am so curious. Is there somewhere you swim at the Ranch? Can you swim in the pond? I have been wondering this for quite some time. Also need to go get some shorts at Walmart. Thank you kindly. Have a GRAND summer.
Hi, Andrea! We do sometimes swim in the pond…our friend also has a family place on a small lake that we swim in. One of the aunts that lives down there also has a pool that we like to frequent in the summer. 🙂 xoxo
The Walmart buys are fantastic! I don’t usually buy clothes there. I tend to spend my money on my professional work wardrobe. My casual clothes suffer. These inexpensive yet fashionable options are perfect for me! I bought the top in 3 colors multi strip, blue stripe and green stripe. I may go back for the coral stripe too. I just couldn’t decide, ahhhh! I bought the navy stripe and grey stripe sweaters from your last Walmart post. I think I’m hooked!
I’m so happy to hear this, Cheryl! Awesome! xoxo
