Florals and Stripes

Good morning friends and happy Monday!! I am so excited to get this week rocking and rolling! The kiddos are at their grandparents, and I have a lot of fun organizational projects and a few home updates I am working on as well. 

But I digress, this morning I am here to talk about fashion, and not just any fashion, I am talking super cute and super affordable fashion from Walmart! And I know I've mentioned it before, but man Walmart really does just keep getting better and better in the fashion department. I can not tell you how many compliments I got on this dress the other day when Todd and I went on a lunch date. I seriously love it so much, I am planning on wearing it again tonight or tomorrow on our date night. 




Don't even get me started on how much I love this straw tote and these gladiator stud sandals. Online the tote looks smaller, but it's the perfect size to use as your everyday purse (like I have been) or a small one person beach tote as well. And just wait until you feel the soles of the sandals, you will truly feel like you're walking on cotton. 






Speaking of fashion, you get went crazy over the casual stripe number when I shared it on stories, and I can totally see why! It's quite possibly the cutest $16 dress ever. I wore it the other day outside doing yard work and putting the finishing touches on our patio makeover with these beautiful tiki torches. And you guys aren't going to believe this but, but these tiki torches are currently on rollback for $2.98!!!! 


Loving the look of these tiki torches so much, and really loving the fact they actually keep the bugs away as well! 





Along with the cutest affordable summer fashion, Walmart also has some amazing rollback deals going on right now, so below I am sharing a few of my favorites! And make sure you scroll to the right, because you don't want to miss this cook set by Drew Barrymore  or this Bissell wet/dry vacuum!!

Five on Friday

TGIF friends!!!! 

ONE // 

Todd and I took all the kiddos and one of Carson's buddies to the waterpark yesterday!  Everyone was all smiles the entire time and we truly had the best day ever!!  The lines weren't long at all and we were able to ride all the big rides over and over.  We took these pictures as we first walked in and they are the only ones we snapped so I was able to tuck my phone away the rest of the time we were there. 






TWO // 

I am planning on making both of these meals at some point this weekend.  I have been scrolling through Pinterest at night when I'm starving and finding some really good recipes :) 






THREE // 

This little lady has been doing the best job ever taking care of her two new guinea pigs and I can tell they are finally getting used to their new home! 


FOUR // 

I have been on an Amazon roll these last few weeks and I have been updating my AMAZON STORE FRONT with all kinds of amazing finds!!  So, just in case you guys don't follow me on there, I thought I would share it here as well.  And always check back because I usually update this site three to four times a day!

Gap Kids Home for Walmart

 If you follow me on Instagram then I'm pretty sure you've heard me singing the praises, as far as the new Gap Home Kids line exclusively for Walmart.  I have been blown away, and I truly mean it.  

I can not go on enough, as far as the quality of every single piece I've ordered.  I made slight changes to Carson and Taylor's bedrooms, but I feel like it made a big impact in both bedrooms.  I also made some changes to Reese and Taylor's bathroom and it feels like a brand new bathroom! 


It is hard for me to pick one item that is my favorite, but Carson's sheets along with the light blue comforter set were the first things that caught me eye.  Carson and Taylor both told me that their new sheets are the most comfortable sheets they have ever slept on, which led me to order another set of the stripes and this set of these cute outer space sheets



I am so in love with the stripes and tassels on this shower curtain...it makes me smile every morning when I walk into the bathroom! 


And last, but not least, I wanted to show you Taylor's room.  These star sheets and ombre stripe organic cotton pillow really brightened her room up and give it such a clean, crisp look. 




I truly couldn't be more excited with how every single room turned out!  So, if you are looking to update or totally re-do your child's space then run, don't walk, and order it from the Gap Kids found online only at Walmart.com! 

Below are a few more of my favorites, but there really isn't one single item from this line that I don't absolutely love!!!

Seven on Monday

Hello friends, and happy Monday!  I sure hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I am back at you with another really good Seven on Monday because I truly want every single thing on this list! 


Eyelet Tie Strap Tiered Midi Dress 

This dress is gorgeous online and I have a feeling it's even prettier in person with all the beautiful eyelet details. 


Striped Square Neck Top

I am loving all the new pink and purple that Loft just released in their new summer line!!  I am also loving that this top can be dressed up or down as well. 





I love pretty much every single thing Lisi Lerch makes and these new Emma disk hoops are stunning and would go with everything. 





Can you believe this dress is only $20!?  Plus, it comes in several really cute prints and patterns as well. 



I just placed an order for these heels and I can already tell that I'm going to LOVE them (pending on comfort level)!! 



Crepe Kaftan Dress

Y'all, this dress...the color, the pattern, and the fit...I love it all!  Plus, the price is really good on this one as well! 


Ruched One Shoulder Stripe Swimsuit

I have been eyeing this swimsuit for a while now.  Well, it finally went on sale so I'm thinking I may need to go ahead and snag it for summer!

Wish List Wednesday

Good morning friends, and happy hump day!  It's not quite officially summer yet, but it's already SUPER HOT!!!!  That being said, I have a lot of perfect toss-on summer dresses and the cutest one piece swimsuit ever on my wish list! 

Smocked Printed Midi Dress 

I am so in love with the print and fit of this dress, plus, the price point is really good! 


Color Block Cutout Swimsuit

How cute is this swimsuit!?  I am loving this color combo together, but the mixed pinks are also super cute. 


Adjustable Buckle Slip-On Slides

I've never been a huge fan of this style of shoes until I laid eyes on these! 





Mixed Pattern Tie Shoulder Dress

I am obsessed with the print and pattern.  It would look so cute dressed down with the shoes above or dressed up with these adorable heels


Budget Planner and Monthly Bill Organizer

I am hoping this little book is what I need to get better with setting a budget.  I've been saying I was going to do this forever and I even have an app downloaded on my phone, but the truth is I'm still much more of a pencil and paper kind of girl. 



Yellow Stripe Maxi Dress

Give me all the stripes, plus, I am really loving the bright yellow color as well! 


Lou and Grey Lobster Terry Sweatshirt 

This entire look makes me want to be on a boat with the wind blowing in my hair...haha!  I would also love it to lounge in around the house as well. 


One Shoulder Tropical Leaf Maxi

You guys aren't going to believe where this gorgeous maxi is from!?!  And best part, it's currently half off right now! 

Annalise Denim Shorts

I love everything about these shorts...the high-rise, the length, and frayed edges!!

Recent Recipes + A few Things I am loving

Hello friends, and happy Monday!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  Our weekend was pretty laid back, but we did get a lot of yard work done along with a few other things around the house.  It always feels so nice going into Monday feeling a bit more organized and accomplished! 

Make these chicken alfredo lasagna rollups asap because they were delicious and everyone LOVED them in our house, even Carson and Reese :) 

Chicken Alfredo Lasagna Rollups


Another thing I recently made in the kitchen is this homemade ranch dressing!  Todd was making wings the other day and I realized that I didn't have any ranch packets left, but that I had everything in the kitchen that this recipe called for.  Let me just tell you guys, I will never be using the ranch packets again! 



Todd and I are making these smash burgers tonight and I am thinking this ranch will be so damn good on them, but I want to do grilled onions and mushrooms.  I am thinking I can't go wrong with either choice! 


 Gap Home Kids Shower Curtain

Okay, the new Gap Kids Home line from Walmart is to DIE for!!!  I ordered the girls this shower curtain, these stripe towels, Taylor these star sheets, Carson this duvet and these sheets, and this pillow for Taylor's bed!  I can't wait to share all of this with you guys when it comes in. 




Run, don't walk, and grab these bras.  You will never want to put on another bra, and I am serious!  I am between a B and a small C, and the size small fits me perfect! 



Smocked Tie Shoulder Dress

Does this dress not look designer?!?!  Yeah, well it's only $22 and I am beyond obsessed with the print. I am hoping they restock Taylor's size in this matching maxi dress


Ribbed Crop Tank and Short Set

This is either going to be a big hit or a big miss, but I've seen these on so many women lately and they look so darn cute!  I'll do a try-on and let you girls know the real deal, and if it's truly a hit or a miss :)

Amazon Haul

Hello friends, and happy almost Friday :)  I know you guys love a good Amazon purchase just like myself and I've had the best luck with fashion finds with my last few orders! 

Halter Neck Beach Maxi Dress // Gold Hoops // Stud Sandals 

This dress is seriously maxi dress perfection!  Trust me when I tell you, you want this one in your closet.  As far as sizing goes, this one runs pretty tts, but if you're between sizes I would size down.  For reference, I am wearing a small. 



I love a good one shoulder top and the bow really adds to this one!  And if you're searching for a really good pair of affordable white skinny jeans, then look no further!  For sizing reference, I'm wearing a size 2 short in the jeans and a size small in the top. 




I've never been the biggest fan of the oversized top, but I absolutely love this one!  For sizing reference, I'm wearing a small and it runs tts, but maybe just a little big so if between sizes I would definitely size down. 


Boho Embroidered Dress // Stud Earrings // Sandals

Get this dress right now, seriously, you will thank me!  For sizing reference, it runs tts and I'm wearing a small. 



I love anything off the shoulder.  The fit, the color, and the print are all amazing on this top!  I would say it runs pretty tts, but maybe a little loose.  If in-between sizes, I would size down. 


White Ruffle Jumpsuit // Necklace // Bracelet // Sandals

I love that this looks like a beautiful layered dress, but it's really a functional jumpsuit!  For sizing reference, it runs tts and I'm wearing a small. 



I kind of wish I would've picked this top in the pink or the solid apricot color, but either way, I love the design and fit.  For sizing reference, it runs tts and I'm wearing a small.
