Affordable Spring Fashion Finds for the Family

(sponsored post)

What is the weather like where you live? Some days its on the cool side while others are definitely a bit more warm. This past weekend when my sons where searching for shorts and t-shirts I knew it was just about that time of year again to pack up their fall/winter clothes and switch them with their spring/summer wardrobe.

I’m dreading the long, hot summer months ahead. For me, spring is one of the most perfect times of year. I was recently challenged, as part of the Walmart Moms, to outfit myself and kidlets for Spring while staying within a $50 budget. Do you think it’s possible?

With the giftcard provided, I went out to my local Walmart to see what I could find. Above are the two looks that I found for the kidlets. I just love seeing my youngest in plaid shorts in the spring and summer months. His plaid woven shorts were only $4.97. They are made with a lightweight material which will help keep him cool. I paired these shorts with a simple solid tee from Fruit of the Loom for just $3.47.

For big brother, I picked out this stylish Wrangler Short Sleeve Henley for $5.97. I paired it with a simple pair of khaki pull on shorts for 4.97. To finish off both boys looks I picked up a simple pair of blue flip flops for both of them at $1.98 each.

One of my favorite go-to outfits for spring and summer has got to be the maxi dress, hands down. Maxi dresses are so comfortable. They are a simple, effortless outfit that can be dressed up or down. I decided to add a bit of color to my wardrobe this spring with this striped, navy and teal maxi dress at Walmart for only $15.44. Apparently, I’m not the only one that liked this dress as fellow fashionista and Walmart Mom, Jennae of Green & Gorgeous is rockin’ the striped maxi as well.

To finish my outfit, I chose to pair the striped maxi dress with a colorful pair of simple flip flops which were only $5.87.

So, how do you think I did? The total for all three outfits combined was under $50!!!! What is your favorite outfit?

    Great minds definitely think alike :) I wish I could’ve found those shoes at my store, because the color is fabulous and they’d be in permanent rotation for the warm months. And your boys are ridiculously cute!

      Awww, thank you. That dress is gorgeous on you! Loved it!!!! I agree, I think those flip flops will get lots of use this summer with many different outfits. Since I normally gravitate towards blacks and greys I’m trying to think outside of my fashion bubble and include more navy blues for spring and summer…..small steps :)
