I absolutely love the task of transitioning my wardrobe with each season – and when I shop I really try to choose each piece with care and purpose – I look for pieces that I can see myself wearing in several different ways but I also try to make sure and choose a few items that help me to infuse some of the latest trends into my otherwise classic approach to dressing.
Walmart recently gave me the opportunity to check out some of their latest offerings in apparel for spring–and before I even clicked over to Walmart.com I was imagining myself purchasing a great maxi skirt or maybe a lightweight button-down–but as soon as I laid my eyes on this amazing Kimono with fringe I knew I had to have it.
I’m wearing: No Boundaries Kimono Wrap With Fringe ($12.88)
and No Boundaries Ribbed Tank in Black ($3.00)
There were so many pattern choices, and I really liked them all – so I have to admit I waffled a bit here. There was a brighter, coral-colored one, another dark one but with a fun pattern, and this one – a beautiful but not overpowering floral. You guys, I am all about being trendy and I have been dying to try something floral–but I’m always just the teensiest bit afraid that I’ll end up looking like a set of terrible curtains or a bedspread. In the end, I dove in and ordered it–and you know what? I totally dig it.

and Faded Glory Women’s Leather Flower Sandal in Coral ($9.96)
Ok, so once I settled on the Kimono, my next mission was finding something to wear it with. I settled quickly on putting a plain black tank underneath it and I scored it for only $3. Perfect. But what to wear on the bottom? I already knew the answer was a great pair of denim shorts but to be honest I was kind of dreading the whole idea. I have an absolute complex about shorts. I don’t like them, they don’t like me-it’s a mutual thing. If you know me well you know that I wear a lot of dresses. That’s because it’s too hot to wear pants but I refuse to wear shorts seeing as how I feel that I never can find a pair that look right on me.
I took a deep breath and ordered 2 pairs of denim shorts by Faded Glory – and wouldn’t you know it? I fell totally in love with them. They are soft, they are trendy, and they fit like a dream. I was so excited that when I tried them on I ran downstairs to show my husband-his response was “WOAH! Shorts?! I love them!”
If I had any doubts, they were gone. I kept them.
I’m no dummy.
To finish off my outfit, I wanted a fun and colorful pair of sandals, and when I saw these coral-colored flower sandals I knew they would be perfect. They made whole outfit feel even more casual and laid back and I loved that they infused some color – I was proud of myself for not automatically choosing black.
What do you think of my outfit? I was honestly so impressed with the great on-trend selection for Spring on Walmart.com – and I went back and bought these shorts in another denim wash as well! I’m hooked!
