As a part of the Walmart Moms, I was asked to check out the dress selection in my local Walmart store. I was surprised to find lots of cute dresses in Walmart less than $20! There was one particular dress that really caught my eye though and it was this Faded Glory Women’s Woven Blouson Dress in black. I fell in love with the clean lines of this dress. I like that it cinches at the waist with elastic. And the fact that this dress has pockets is what ultimately sold me on it being the perfect little black dress, a staple every lady should have in their closet no matter what the season. This dress comes in other colors as well like navy blue and a beautiful green. The material is light and soft which is perfect for the hot summer months.

The price point is perfect too. Originally this dress was $12.94 now you can get it for $10.50 on That is an amazing deal. This dress is sleeveless so it is going to keep you cool during the summer and the length hits just at the knees. It isn’t too low in the front or too short on the length which I appreciate. Since I am one that burns easily in the sun and often gets cold in office buildings or restaurants I opted to style this dress with a classic kimono that I also found at Walmart. This No Boundaries Crochet Trimmed Cardigan was just $12.88 at my local Walmart store. I love the crochet detailing on the back. The kimono sleeves keeps me covered without being too hot for the summer. I think combined with a long necklace like the dreamcatcher one I’m wearing in the photo that I also found at Walmart for just $4.88 pairs perfectly with the dress to complete the outfit.
