We are headed to Napa, California this week and I stopped into Walmart to grab some last minute outfits. They have the cutest dresses right now for Spring and Summer. I was immediately attracted to the bold colors but if you are more of a neutral lover, there were plenty of options for you too! Mr. Chic even found a few pieces that we picked up as well. See and shop all of our finds below!

Are you gearing up for any Springtime events but stumped on what to wear? I got you girl! A lot of dresses are currently on sale so now is the perfect time to stock up for any upcoming weddings, showers, parties or other events that you might have!
Y’all know my love runs deep for Abercrombie lately and their new Spring arrivals are probably my favorite to date. So many cute styles and even cuter prints! Bring on all of the dresses, mini skirts and shorts now that the warmer weather is *hopefully* here to stay.
With Easter around the corner, Abercrombie has so many colorful style options that would be perfect for the occasion. If you are new (or coming full circle) to shopping at Abercrombie, their selection mixes trendy pieces with classic styles that are appropriate for all ages and sizes. Sizing wise, I have found Abercrombie to run very true to size and they also offer petite and tall length options. I typically wear an XS in tops and dresses and a 25 in their denim which is the best affordable denim that I own I might add.
If you have anything sitting in your online cart, Abercrombie is having 25% off select items plus free shipping over $75 today! Check out some of my favorite items from their new Spring and Summer arrivals below as well as some of my all time favorite pieces.
My Chick-fil-a and Target runs have recently turned into Chick-fil-a and Walmart runs and boy have I been surprised at some of my recent fashion finds. While I’ve picked up my basic tees and tanks from Walmart for a long time, I’d never really ventured out further than that because honestly your girl is normally making a bee line for the Cookie Two Step Blue Bell Ice Cream. #priorities
I’ve had some requests lately to share casual work wear or outfits that would be appropriate for a classroom setting and while I haven’t set foot in a classroom setting in awhile, I would put money on the fact that teachers are all about the comfort aspect while still trying to look cute and professional. This is normally where I would give a speech on stretchy pants and dresses: two must haves for the comfy lover but I’ll refrain because I know you ladies know what I’m talking about.
As soon as Walmart announced that Maurices was launching on walmart.com, I knew they would have some great casual pieces that would be perfect for the classroom or a casual office setting.
I was pleasantly surprised by these button fly jeggings. They have the look of jeans, the stretch of jeggings and the quality of designer denim. I am wearing the same pair of denim in both the first and last outfits. The only difference is that I cuffed them in the last outfit making them look like an almost completely different jean! These jeans do run on the bigger side so I would suggest sizing down if in between sizes. I went with the XS short and would have done an XXS had they have had it.
I picked up several other pieces from the Maurices line that are not only appropriate for the office or classroom, they are just great basics to add to your closet. I can promise you that this anorak jacket will go with just about anything and everything. I’m talking over basic tees, blouses, dresses and even jumpsuits. I’ve tested this theory and I promise it works and it looks just as cute as can be. The green color option is my personal favorite but it also comes in a pretty blush pink color that is perfect for Spring and has the prettiest eyelet detail.
Next up, let’s talk shoes. Since heels can be a little too aggressive and usually not the most comfortable for someone on their feet all day, I found two pairs of wedges that are super cute, under $20 and the perfect height for the classroom. If wedges are still a little too much of a commitment for you, I found this pair of on trend white mules that I absolutely love. For sizing purposes, if you are in between sizes in any of the Time and Tru wedges, size down. I’m normally a 7.5 and went with the 7s. As for any of the Time and Tru sandals, I size up a half size!

Happy International Women’s Day ladies! While I think we should celebrate women everyday, today is a special day for womanhood and how far we have come. Celebrate all of the women who are killing it in the workforce. Celebrate all of the women who are raising babies. Celebrate all of the women who sacrifice day in and day out. Celebrate ALL of the women all over the world who are making a difference for our future. We still have a long way to go but I’m so proud to be a woman today hopefully opening doors for all of the women that will come after me.
I know this might seem unrelated but stick with me here. With Spring around the corner, a few weeks ago I thought it would be fun to challenge myself to try out some new make up products! Coincidentally right around the same time that I decided it was time for a Spring make up refresh, one of my followers asked me a question that sparked a fun idea. The question was, “If you could only use one make up product the rest of your life, what would it be?”. I didn’t even have to think twice about my answer. IT Cosmetics CC Cream of course!
I’ve used IT Cosmetics CC Cream for over 5 years, I’ve tried changing foundations and always go back to it. Always. The same follower asked me if I had tried any other other IT Cosmetics products and that’s when I realized I haven’t! How could I not have tried any other products from the brand I just deemed I couldn’t live without?! So I made it a mission to try out a full face worth of IT Cosmetics products and I’m so excited to share that my Spring Make Up Refresh is comprised of just that.
The more I dove into researching IT Cosmetics, I found out that it was founded by a woman and as a female business owner myself, it always brings me a little more joy knowing that the brand I am supporting was founded by a fellow girl boss! Women should support other women no matter how big or small!
So I’m excited to share that I found all of the products I’ve added into my Spring make up line up on a website that is supporting this mission. In honor of International Women’s Day, QVC® and HSN will be contributing $100,000 to Nest, buildanest.org, a global nonprofit committed to the social and economic advancement of women by supporting female artisans who might not have the resources they need to flourish. We invite you to visit QVC.com to learn more and support Nest—QVC is even matching donations on ALL sales today! Shop all of my new make up products below.
