Yay! It’s Affordable Friday!!!! I haven’t been doing these as much as I would like to so I’m really going to make an effort to bring these back to my blog more often! My goal is at least one affordable Friday post a month! And if it’s a good month maybe two! I’m really excited about today’s post because pretty much everything is under $20. So this is a SUPER affordable Friday post
I want to start with my peach dress. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I adore this dress. And I’m so bummed because I feel like these pictures don’t quite do it justice (plus I didn’t iron/steam it beforehand). And honestly, I ordered one size too big for me. I think I tend to think I’m a larger size than I really am. So I ordered a size large in the dress but it was definitely too big. I would’ve returned it and got a medium but I wanted to wear it to a party so I just went with it. I might go ahead and order the medium anyway because it’s only $13! Oh yeah, you heard me right. This dress is $13! For $13 you really can’t go wrong. I feel like it’s cute enough to wear to a casual summer or spring wedding but you can dress it up with heels and jewelry to wear to a fancy brunch or daytime event! Honestly, I wore it out with Molly the other day with sandals and a wicker purse and it felt very farm girl chic.
Molly’s cute little rainbow dress is also extremely affordable at only $13. I got both dresses at Walmart. In fact, everything in this post is going to be from Walmart. When I do post like this, I like to keep them from the same retailer so if you decide to get something you can get it all from one place. And if you get multiple things usually you can get shipping for free. At Walmart, you can get free shipping when you spend over $35 dollars. Pick pick up one or two things in this post! Also, I just like showing you guys items from Walmart because they have a huge selection of items and there’s a Walmart pretty much close to where everybody lives! So if you see something you like here you can always order it online and pick it up in the store. That’s one of my favorite features they have. If you like one of the pieces I wrote about in this post, you can order it online and then pick up so you know it’ll be there waiting for you! Anyway, like I was saying, Molly’s dress is only $13 as well. I just think it’s so cute and she absolutely loves it – it looks like a rainbow! They have the same/similar dress in a few other prints as well. I’ll link them below:
My black maxi dress is also a steal for under $20. It comes in a bunch of different colors and it’s just the perfect summer dress to throw on no matter what you’re doing. I like the black a lot and other neutral colors because I feel like they can so easily be dressed down or up. You can wear it over a swimsuit at the beach or you can dress it up with a belt, sandals and hat and maybe throw a jean jacket over it to go out to lunch with girlfriends. Plus, I just love a good comfortable maxi. This one is so soft and comfortable.
Speaking of wearing it over a swimsuit. How stinking cute is this white beating suit top I got at Walmart. And get this, it’s only seven dollars! I love it because it’s simple and flattering. I can’t wear those plain triangle top bikinis anymore. My boobs just like totally flat and weird after breastfeeding two kids. Ha! But this bikini top is the perfect amount of support! You can get the bottoms too to get a matching set. But it’s such a plain, simple and classic top that really can be paired with any bikini bottoms that you like!
The last item I want to tell you about revolves around these shorts! I love these $10 shorts! I do want to say upfront however they are a little bit sheer. I do wear them out and about with nude underwear and I don’t feel like you can see through them at all! But other people might be more comfortable wearing these as beach shorts when you wear a bathing suit underneath. But what I love so much is that they are high waisted and super flattering! I’m 145-150 pounds and about 5’7″ and I got a size large and I thought they fit perfectly. Especially after I washed them.
I just think you can’t go wrong for $10 to have these shorts to wear to the beach over your swimsuits this season! The jean jacket I’m wearing is also from Walmart but I’m not counting it as one of the Affordable Friday pieces since it’s not under $20. But it’s still a super affordable for a jean jacket and I just love the cute stitching detail on the arm. Plus I like a good light wash denim jacket. I think it stands out from all the other medium wash denim jackets out there.
Anyways guys, I hope you like today’s blog post! I really did my best to search for affordable items that I love and think that you guys will love! Let me know what you think in the comments below!
And thank you Walmart for sponsoring this Affordable Friday post!
