Summer Tip #1

Rule #1....

Do not go to Walmart at midnight..

This is what happens when you go to Walmart with your sister at midnight on a Tuesday night...

Buuuttt I did find some awesome steals. Who knew I could love Wolly World aka Walmart so much! :)
1.Checkered Shirt- $5.00
2. Watch for running- $9.00
3. Adorable one piece suit (designer brand)- $20.00
4. Swim skirt to go over the one piece- $15.00
Overall: Definate success!
Summer Tip #1:
I love them and so should you.
{When paired with the right pieces, stripes can really enhance your figure and keep you looking up-to-date. Designers are now mixing stripes with florals to give it an edgy vintage feel.

For Example...
Anthropologie paired this stripe shirt with a bright floral skirt.
Love it.
If this look doesn't seem to fit you then wear stripes with just one print and match it with a solid. For example, a striped shirt looks great with white pants or jeans. Vertically striped pants or skirts can make you look taller and in style when you wear it with a solid-colored tee. Having stripes on the bottom allows your legs to look longer, giving the allusion of you looking thinner. In addition, horizontal stripes are great on shirts and can help to create a curvacious feminine figure.}

Solid pant with a striped shirt. Mmm Hmm :)

Go treat yourself to something of stripes you lovely bloggers!
ps. Happy Wednesday!
