Walmart Swimsuit Haul

Walmart Swimsuit Haul

Praise the Lord it’s bikini weather, y’all! Every year I let myself purchase one name brand swimsuit and then limit myself to a couple budget friendly options which if I’m being honest, I’m usually not too thrilled about. This year while making a Walmart run, I decided to try on a few swimsuits and literally had to refrain from buying the entire swimsuit section. You’d never guess that all of these swimsuits are under $20 and cute as can be! Unfortunately I couldn’t find a few of these online but they should all be available in store if not on walmart.com AND most come in plus sizes too.

Sizing: For women’s brand swimsuits like Time and Tru, sizing runs true to size with the smallest size starting at a size small (4/6). If you are a true XS, the swimsuits will likely be too big on you. For junior’s brands like No Boundaries, sizing runs on the smaller side. The smallest size is a size small(3/5) but it fits more like an XS.

May 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!

The past couple of months I have started sharing more of my Amazon finds and I’d say by the number of top sellers from Amazon you ladies are definitely loving all things Amazon! That certainly doesn’t mean though that I will stop sharing my favorite items from places like Nordstrom, Abercrombie, Revolve and Old Navy!

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


Amazon LuluLemon Dupe Leggings

These Amazon leggings are a dupe for the very popular LuluLemon align leggings and come in close to 50 colors. They honestly feel like you aren’t wearing anything at all but definitely pass the bend over test! They fit true to size. I’m wearing an XS.


The best overalls I’ve found to date. The color I have (light wash) is no longer available but the dark wash is and I like it better! They fit true to size. I’m wearing an XS.


May Top Ten

The best $17 shorts out there. They are a good length + quality and are very stretchy! If in between sizes, size up.


Amazon OTS Jumpsuit

This $25 Amazon prime jumpsuit find is what comfy dreams are made of. It comes in several colors and makes the best travel outfit too!


Amazon Swimsuit

A top seller for months now, this $25 scalloped bikini is the cutest thing and best quality too. The top is padded and the material is SO soft. Overall it has amazing coverage and comes in several colors. Size up! I am typically a XS and got the small.


IT Cosmetics

If you are a IT Cosmetics CC cream girl, you are going to love this QVC deal. It comes with the Matte CC Cream, foundation brush, Superhero mascara and rose lip treatment (kind of like a tinted chapstick). It’s basically like buy one, get three FREE! I hadn’t tried the mascara before this deal and now I can’t live without it. The matte CC cream is good for my girls with oily skin that want a full coverage foundation.


Amazon Cocktail Dress I still can’t believe this dress is from Amazon! It’s SO good and under $30! I have the lavender color but it comes in about 10 gorgeous colors. It runs true to size. I’m wearing the small but could have done an XS.


Memorial Day Outfits

With July 4th coming up, now is the time to get those festive swimsuits ready! This high waisted swimsuit gem is too cute. Size up as it does runs small.


Isle of Paradise Drops

These tanning drops are all the rage right now and are constantly selling out at retailers. I use shade dark and add it to my face moisturizer 2-3 times a week! If you are new to QVC you can use TAKE5 for $5 off.


Graphic Tees

Y’all have sold these overalls out multiple times and I’m hoping some more sizes come back in stock because they are my favorite things ever. The boyfriend fit makes them very flattering and comfortable. They fit oversized but run true to size. I’m wearing the XS.

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, Liketoknow.it 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 them or what other items might have been purchased. For example, if you click on my Gucci Belt 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 belt 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!

Tuesday Trends: High Waisted Swimsuits

High waisted swimsuits

Another trend we aren’t seeing go away anytime soon is high waisted swimsuits. While they aren’t optimal for tan line purposes, they sure are cute! I own my fair share of them and quite a few of my favorites are from Amazon believe it or not. So if you are wanting to try out this trend and not spend $100+, check out my favorite finds below! My favorite places to shop for this trend are Amazon, Target, Aerie, and Red Dress Boutique.

The Season’s Hottest Swimwear

Britt and I’s swimsuits are from Kortni Jeane

If you have seen my Instagram lately, you might think that I’ve taken up a new profession as a swimsuit connoisseur. Well let me tell you, there is this funny thing about recovery and being cooped up all day. It forces you to buy an absurd amount of swimsuits. That’s right, it’s the darndest thing and I’ve yet to figure out why this is the case. I’m hyping it up to be a side effect of the pain meds. Since I am going on SO many beach trips in the near future it’s totally justifiable though. Well I mean I’ve thought about going on vacation so that is kind of the same thing right…it’s like maybe if I just buy enough swimsuits it will force me to plan a beach getaway. Or is that not how it works?

I love that there are more options than ever when it comes to swimwear this season. And not just the ity bity bikinis, but one pieces and all over coverage is making a major fashion statement. I have to admit that I was pretty worried when I heard that Victoria’s Secret was going to quit carrying swimsuits. It’s where I got ALL of my swimsuits so branching out has been quite the adjustment for me. Change is hard guys. I’m that girl that orders the same item off the menu every single time at every restaurant so just imagine the dispare I went through to learn that I’d have to completely turn my life upside down to find a new favorite swimsuit retailer.

Me dramatic? Never.

So what did my search results find? Well for starters, Kortni Jeane was an obvious girly girls’ heaven. They have so many different patterns so that you can mix and match your top and bottoms. I also love that they are the perfect mix of modest and cute! Another bonus is that the majority of their swimsuits are high waisted and flattering on ALL body types, even expecting mamas! Just for sizing reference I ordered an XS (my normal size) but definitely regretted not getting the small so if you are in between sizes, I would size up! Other retailers that I have bought swimsuits from this year are ASOS, Nordstrom, Dillards, and Shein. Check out some of my favorites from these retailers below.
