Walmart Fall Fashion Haul

Walmart Fall Haul

Walmart has done it again! So many great basics for Fall so I’m back with another try on session! For sizing reference, I am 5’4″, 115 pounds and typically wear an XS in tops and bottoms. Time and Tru is usually my favorite brand to shop at Walmart but lately I’ve found really good finds from Scoop and Dreamers By Debut too!

Avia Hoodie Tunic – If you get one thing, make it this! Meant to be a workout top but just as good if not better than a lot of the Aerie tunics. It has thumb holes and is long enough to wear with leggings. SO SOFT. Comes in several colors and runs true to size. Wearing a small.

Avia Leggings – I can’t find these exact leggings online but Avia makes several patterns and colors that I high recommend. They have the quality of several high end brands. They are high waisted and have tummy control. They run true to size. Wearing an XS.

Windbreaker plus sizes– This little windbreaker is water resistent and a cute athletic option. It has pockets and a drawstring around the waist to make it tighter. It runs small as it’s a junior’s item. Size up! It also comes in .

V-Neck Tunic Sweater – Size up if in between sizes as this sweater runs a little short. I’m in the XS but would have preferred the small! It has 3/4 sleeves and is very lightweight.

Walmart Fall Haul

Sherpa Jacket– These are just $10 and come in several color combos. They are junior sizes so they are a bit fitted. I suggest sizing up at least one sizes and if wanting it oversized, size up 2 sizes. It also comes in plus sizes.

Button Front Plaid – Grab this in ALL of the pattern combos it’s that good and will be great for layering purposes. It is very soft and flexible. It runs true to size. I’m in the size small.

Boat Neck Top – Such a great work to weekend top! It’s stretchy and a good in between of a sweater and a tee. It runs on the bigger side so if in between sizes, size down. I’m wearing an XS.

Casual Moto Jacket – Great alternative to the popular suede BlankNYC moto jacket. This one is a cotton material, stretchy, and much less warm. It is incredibly comfortable and will be a great piece to wear now and later. Oh and it’s just $25! I got the small but would have preferred an XS.

Walmart Fall Haul

Sherpa Vest – $10 and comes in several colors! It feels much more expensive than $10. It is sherpa on the inside and out and has pockets too! It runs true to size. Wearing a small.

Sweater – This is one of those sweaters you are going to want to buy in ALL of the colors. It’s $11 and SO soft that it almost feels like cashmere. Would also be office appropriate. It runs a little oversized so if wanting for the office, size down, otherwise true to size. Wearing a small.

Walmart Fall Haul

Sherpa Cardigan – Ladies this is the softest thing EVER. Probably something I will only wear around the house but for $12 it is worth it. It comes in several colors. The oatmeal is probably my favorite color combo. It runs true to size. I’m wearing a small.

Walmart Fall Haul

Pajama Set – This set is fleece lined making it extremely soft and pretty warm. It has cuffs on the wrists and ankles so it won’t ride up in your sleep and functioning buttons. If runs big so if in between sizes, size down.

Budget Friendly Fall Home Decor

When it comes to home decorating do you tend to take a traditional or non traditional approach? Over the years I’ve flip flopped back and forth. For example this year I love all of the buffalo plaid. I already know that I want to incorporate it for Fall and bring it into the holiday season as well. I plan on mixing in some harvest colors with the buffalo plaid for Fall and then trading those out for red and gold come December. I tend to gravitate towards pieces that I know can be used for multiple holidays whether that’s Halloween and Thanksgiving or Fall and Christmas!

My favorite places to shop for budget friendly home decor are always Target, TJ Maxx and Amazon. They have affordable finds that last me a few season’s worth so that way if I want to change it up one year, I didn’t invest too much money into a theme that isn’t to my liking anymore. Most finds from these places are under $20, if not less. TJ Maxx has free shipping days every so often (including TODAY!) where I like to stock up on all of the things.

The Moisturizer Your Skin Didn’t Know It Needed

Olay Regenerist Whip Red Jars

*This post is sponsored by Olay. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.*

I have very strong memories of both my grandmother and mother using Olay products growing up, but it wasn’t until a few years ago that I too got hooked. In high school and college, I didn’t use a moisturizer because I was convinced moisturizers made my skin greasy and therefore caused breakouts. I was sorely mistaken and wish I had been whipped into *skincare* shape long ago!

I started using Olay Regenerist Whip Face Moisturizer almost three years ago now and my skin has transformed drastically. It went from being extremely oily to what most would categorize as normal skin. Did you know that not using a daily moisturizer actually makes your skin produce more oil because it is working in overdrive to try and hydrate your skin?! I had no idea.

Let me tell you about my newest best friend, the Olay Red Jar. I use this moisturizer every single day and have brought it on every single vacation the past few months. It is extremely hydrating without leaving your face oily or sticky so I can apply it in the morning without worrying that my make-up will slide off. In fact, my make-up goes on easier and smoother than it ever has when I use Olay Regenerist Whip before I apply my make-up. It functions as a primer and soaks in super fast too!

The consistency of this moisturizer is light so it is almost weightless to the touch and feel. It literally feels like your skin just consumed a tall glass of water! And just like water, my skin craves this stuff. I have accidentally forgotten to pack my red jar on a couple vacations and my skin is noticeably less hydrated. Now it is the first product I throw in my skincare bag – I won’t make that mistake again.

Another great selling factor for me is that the Olay Regenerist Whip comes in an SPF option which I normally take on vacations with me when I know I’ll be out in the sun all day. So, if you are heading on a beach vacation or just want to protect your skin at home, Olay has you covered. If you are particularly sensitive to smells like me, I also love that they make a fragrance-free option. Honestly, there is an Olay Red Jar for everyone. My mother and grandmother can attest to that too.

Whether you are just needing a new everyday moisturizer or want to pick up the SPF packed version before your next trip, I highly recommend Olay Regenerist Whip. It has the high-end skincare feels with the drugstore price and you don’t have to fly all the way to Tokyo to get it;)

August Top Ten

We are back for another monthly round up of the most purchased items from the previous month. I always love these posts because I enjoy seeing which items you ladies loved the most and which ones took a back seat. I always want to make sure that I bring you the best content and sale round ups so looking over this data for trending items, categories and retailers helps me plan similar content for the next month and hopefully you enjoy seeing behind the scenes a little bit too!

To shop any of the below items, simply click on the picture and it will take you to the retailers site to purchase! Also, if you enjoy these types of post and are curious about how I obtain this data and track sales on the back end, scroll down to the bottom of this post for more information on that!

Top Ten Purchased Items

10. Walmart Peasant Top
The best $15 Free People dupe I’ve found in awhile. It comes in 7 colors and runs true to size. It does shrink in the wash so you might want to size up!

9. Walmart Moto Jacket
If you love the BLANKNYC moto jackets but not the price tag or if you live somewhere that doesn’t get that cold, this jacket is for you! It’s just $25, comes in two great neutral colors, and is made of a cotton material so it’s not too hot.

8. Old Navy Coat
If you love the look of the J Crew coats but not the price, this coat is a great alternative! I own the past two years versions of this coat and have loved each one. I always get my true size, an XS, but if you are planning to wear multiple layers underneath, I would size up. It also comes in black.

7. Old Navy Pocket Cardigan
This cardigan is SO good you won’t believe it is from Old Navy. It is the same style as the popular Madewell ones with the same soft feel too. It runs true to size and comes in several colors.

6. Sunglasses Organizer
If you are wanting to display your sunglasses in your room or laundry room, this is a great option! It fits either 10 or 12 pairs of sunglasses and is just $20!

5. Macbook Pro Laptop Case
$17 Macbook Pro laptop case comes with 4 pieces: a top case, bottom case, keyboard cover and screen protector. You have over 20 patterns to choose from. I got the pink marble and the quality is great!

4. Walmart Peasant Top
A great $15 work to weekend top. It’s peplum heel so adorable and it comes in 4 colors/patterns.

3. A&F Straight Jeans
I love these so much that I own them in two washes! They are a true denim with little stretch so if in between sizes, size up. I own a size 24 and 25 and love both fits.

2. SLIP Silk Pillowcase 
These rarely go on sale and this one is 50% off! If you aren’t familiar with silk pillowcases they have so many benefits for your hair and skin. The number one being that they allow you to go much longer in between hair washes! See more about the benefits in this blog post here.

1. BLANKNYC Suede Moto Jacket 
The number one seller by a landslide. It keeps selling out but it’s fully stocked right now! This jacket is a staple in my Fall/Winter wardrobe. It instantly makes any outfit chic! Even over a dress and sneakers! I got my true size (an XS), but if you are planning to wear sweaters underneath, size up!

And as a reminder on how I obtain the monthly top ten data…

I use an affiliate program called rewardStyle. This means that if you click on any link- whether it be from my Instagram, app or blog, that takes you to a product page on a retailer’s site and rewardStyle is able to track that it originated from me. Some affiliate programs will pay the influencer for every click that they generate from their site. RewardStyle pays per purchase made. This means that if you click on one of my links and then end up purchasing that item, I will get a small commission (usually between 7-12%).  Many bloggers use this same program as part of their revenue source.

Because I use this service I do have access to data analytics. This means I can track what items are clicked on and purchased. I cannot see who clicked on each link or what other items might have been purchased. For example, if you click on my silk pillowcase link and then purchase a swimsuit and a top in the same transaction, I will only be able to see that a purchase was made and that the pillowcase link is how you got to the retailer’s site.

These analytics are incredibly important to me because it allows me to see what all of you are liking. At the end of the day, this little blog business of mine is meant to be a resource for all of you so having the ability to track and measure each product’s success is invaluable. Coming from a Finance background, I tend to geek out over the analytics side of it as I find it incredibly intriguing what all of you are liking, buying and clicking on the most! It gets my gears turning because I genuinely want to bring you products that you are going to love and want to buy (at the right price point of course)!

Like I mentioned, this little blog is a full time business for me which means I am so appreciative when you choose to click and shop through my links – whether that be on Instagram or the blog. I have poured everything I have into being a resource for all of you so that hopefully it makes your life a little bit easier. I know that shopping through my links is an extra step for you, but please know it makes all the difference to me. It is how I am able to continue sharing great deals, try on sessions, and everything else. O and it allows me to pay my bills 🙂

All of that is to say, shopping through my links does not cost you anything additional (the item is the same price), the retailer will just pay me a small cut since I am the one that referred you. Please know I am so thankful when you choose to shop through my links and give me credit for helping you score a great find!
