    20+ Budget-Friendly Walmart Picks For Summer

    I’ve been telling you guys for months not to sleep on the amazing finds that Walmart has been offering this spring. But ICYMI, there are plenty more budget-friendly Walmart picks for summer. I think this is my favorite product round-up yet because of the easy breezy maxi skirts and outdoor furniture options make me ready for sunshine. (In fact, I’ve already ordered several of the things in today’s collage and will be doing a try-on in my Stories later today!) A few things I wanted to call out from the collage:

    The gold gladiator sandals and slip-on sandals – look expensive in person

    The white maxi skirt (is a little see-through) is perfect to wear over swimwear.

    There’s a convenient closure on the printed rompers to prevent wardrobe mishaps.

    Still stocking up on the Volcano dupe candle that’s only $6.

    Also really loving the fact that I can order things like cute skirts and candles all in one online cart with the other household products that we need instead of having to checkout across multiple sites. (I’ve also really been taking advantage of Walmart’s grocery pick up on the app too.)

    Our Post-Quarantine Bucket List

    To say I’ve had a lot of time to think about what I’m going to do AFTER quarantine is an understatement. Every single day, I think I’ve mentioned at least one thing out loud that I miss about pre-coronavirus days. This might sound like I’m being negative, but I think it also makes me appreciate even the smallest of things that I previously overlooked before now. So I started making a list of everything that popped in my head – even the littlest things – that I am going to look forward to once this is over. And surprise, surprise, almost all of them involve being outside of our house and plenty of sunshine. I thought I’d share mine in case you want to start your own post-quarantine bucket list to look forward to checking off.

    My Most-Loved Jewelry Brands + Timeless Jewelry Collection

    When I think about some of the most timeless pieces in my wardrobe, jewelry immediately comes to mind. If you’re a regular reader here, you probably know that I almost always have at least one piece of jewelry on – even if it’s just classic studs whenever I leave the house. (And sometimes even during quarantine.) I recently spent a morning taking inventory of all the jewelry that I own – some pieces I’ve had for years while others are fairly new. That’s when I realized that I’ve never actually shared a list of my most-loved jewelry brands, so I immediately started working on a list to share my current jewelry collection for reference.

    Most Used Baby Items Months 6-12

    I can’t believe I’m already writing a post on our most used baby items months 6-12! I’ve been keeping a running list of new things that we get for Bennett as he reaches new milestones. It’s crazy to think about how much he’s already grown since the newborn to 6 months post + there are so many more “essentials” than when he was smaller. Our new normal is now so much more than just boppy pillows and sleepsuits. But, it’s SO FUN to see all his different skills start to develop using all of the items in today’s post.
