Happy Wednesday, y’all! You know there’s nothing we love more than finding chic pieces at a great price! Last month, we partnered with Walmart for their “We Dress America” campaign and we wanted to share a few new pieces we’ve been crushing on! These Walmart Fashion pieces are absolutely perfect warm weather wardrobe additions! With summer on the horizon we’re getting ready for a few months full of fun travel! And since we’re always on the hunt for the perfect travel piece we had to let y’all know about our latest obsession, this knitted dress (pictured above) is the comfiest and doesn't wrinkle (so it’s perfect for packing)! And did we mention that’s a score at under $50?!?

Curious about some of our other warm weather finds? We are swooning over this chic wrap dress, this empire waist maxi, and these darling gingham sandals. Planning a beach vacation? We think this netted bucket bag, this striped tote, and this natural straw bag are perfect for any getaway! We also plan to snap up this darling striped hat! Can you believe all these travel necessities are under $35?!?!

You know we love pattern play! We are crushing on this chic leopard blouse paired with our spring staple pants (under $40)! We also adore these leopard mules. And how can we resist this collared striped button down?!?! We know finding the most perfect every day bra seems daunting, but we love this one! We wear it with our go-to tee and it’s so comfy! We’re also eyeing this shapewear to go under our favorite denim dress.

Oh, and how could we forget to mention that you get free 2-day shipping and returns on purchases over $35?!?! Take a peek at more of our favorites below! Happy shopping, y’all!

Happy Tuesday, y’all! Memorial Day is right around the corner so we thought we’d round up our favorite red, white, and blue festive finds!

For a LIMITED TIME ONLY… One Kings Lane is offering 20% OFF Orders Over $600 with Code “OKLSTYLISH20” and so many of our go-to’s are eligible like this set of ginger jar lamps and this wingback headboard. Want to see what’s on our wishlist? We adore this contemporary navy dresser (it has the prettiest carved silhouette), this crisp cotton upholstered headboard in a fun dot design, and this skirted ottoman in whimsical lion print. P.S. speaking of One Kings Lane, our Alphabet Series launched yesterday! We have the perfect red, white, and blue pieces including our signature “HOWDY” art that’s sure to brighten up any room. Snap up our heart art to add a punch of color to your space!

Our go-to, J.Crew, is having a MAJOR sale today! We just snapped us this darling mosaic print sarong from our one of our favorites! You since you know we’re smitten for stripes… we can’t resist this vintage-inspired rugby (on sale for just $28.99) and this long-sleeve red, white, and blue tee (only $22.99)! Oh, and how darling is this striped scoop neck cutout dress?!?! It’s perfect for summer!

And since you can never have too many handbags (in our opinion) we just added some to our favorites including this blue + white clutch, this tote with the perfect pop of color, this chic work bag, and this indigo blue bag! We think this pouch is the sweetest and great for carrying all of your beauty essentials! Plus, you can get it monogrammed for FREE!

If you’re looking for the perfect Memorial Day outfit, take a peek at this printed wrap dress paired with this color crush bangle (on sale today for under $20). We’ve also been eyeing this belted jumpsuit that would look darling with these gingham sandals (under $25)! And last, but not least, we are loving this adorable red and blue striped accent dress… pair it with these statement earrings in our signature orangey-red color and these navy heels to complete your look.

Happy shopping, y’all!
