A Week in Walmart Jeans

Happy Saturday Babes! I wanted to do a fun little series that helped my fashionistas on a budget still look their best. Walmart has really been stepping up their clothing styles and I’m loving all the new updates, especially their jeans selection. With the Levi’s Signature Series and some cute No Boundaries styles out now, there are some great options to choose from.

I went to Walmart and picked out a few pairs of jeans that I could mix and match in outfits and that were great everyday staples. All the jeans I’m wearing are UNDER $30 and such great quality. I wanted to get this post up because some of the jeans are currently on sale at Walmart so I wanted to show a few styles to choose from. I have linked all that’s available online underneath each photo and added links to similar options if the original is sold out.

Mom Shops You Need!

I’m all for girl power. Especially mom built businesses because we all know it’s hard enough to be a mom without having any other responsibilities so to add a business to the pile of things to do is a lot and I commend and support any mom out there trying to make a better life for themselves and their families.

I have a deep love for a comfy tee and jeans. So when I find new mom shops that have cute tees, pullovers, and more I’m in heaven. This post is to share two of my most favorite mom shops that I’ve been shopping for a while. I found both on Instagram and have been hooked ever since. I love them because they have sizing options and accessories for everyone including the kids and dad too. Both shops have unisex size tees so that you have a more oversized comfort fit but you can also get your regular size in some tees as well.

FIT TIPS:

-The T-Shirts I have are all unisex sizing and I’m wearing a size Medium for a more oversized fit. If you want a more fitted look size down one.
-My Pullover is also unisex sizing and I’m wearing a size Medium.

SIZING REFERENCE:

I’m 5’8″. Typically wear 9-9.5 in shoes and a size 10 if they run small. M/L in tops and dresses. 6-8 in Jeans depending on make and brand.

Do you have a favorite mom shop you love? If not, definitely try these shops out because they’re the best. Their customer service is awesome too. Check out their Instagram pages @CHARLOTTEANDEZRA and @MOMLIFEMUSTHAVES.

Apps That Changed My Blogging Game

Being a blogger is a lot of work. It’s not just the perfectly edited, amazing daily life and vacation photos you see online. The, behind the scenes editing, is a lot of work and time. Aside from photoshoots, flatlays and home decor pictures you have to take. Then you have to edit them for posting on your Blog, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, etc. That can be time-consuming and stressful. These apps have totally saved me whether it be time, confusion or finding a great preset. They are the apps that I am currently using on the daily.

There are so many today and a lot of bloggers use a lot more apps or different ones but since I’m just diving all into this blogging thing I had to start from the bottom and figure it all out on my own. These apps were the easiest to understand and learn how to use for me so I’ve stuck with these through the years. I don’t use many and I don’t do much editing on my photos other than my preset but here’s a list of apps that have made things so much easier for me with my Instagram, blogging, and vlogging.

App List:

1. CONTINUAL (CUTS LARGER VIDEOS DOWN TO 15 SECOND CLIPS FOR INSTA STORIES)


2. iMOVIE (I USE THIS TO EDIT YOUTUBE AND INSTA STORY VIDEOS)


3. LIGHTROOM (ONE OF THE ONLY APPS I USE FOR EDITING PHOTOS. KEVIN USES LIGHTROOM ON HIS LAPTOP FOR BIGGER EDITS)


4. MOREBEAUTE2 (I’VE BEEN USING THIS APP SINCE INSTAGRAM STARTED. I USE IT MAINLY TO EITHER BRIGHTEN A PHOTO REALLY QUICK OR HIDE A BREAKOUT.)


5. CANVA (I USE BOTH THE APP AND DESKTOP VERSION. I MAINLY USE THE DESKTOP VERSION BECAUSE IT’S EASIER TO SAVE INDIVIDUAL PHOTOS RATHER THAN ALL THE PROJECTS AT ONCE. IT’S ALSO WHERE I DESIGNED MY MEDIA KIT, BUSINESS CARDS AND SOME OF MY INSTAGRAM STORIES TEMPLATES.)
CANVA APP LINK


6. TAILWIND (I USE THIS TO TELL ME WHAT TIMES TO POST ON WHAT DAYS. YOU CAN ALSO USE IT TO PLAN AND POST PHOTOS FOR YOU ON INSTAGRAM AND PINTEREST.)


7. HYPE TYPE (I USE THIS RARELY BUT IT’S SIMILAR TO CANVA WHERE YOU CAN DESIGN INSTAGRAM STORY POSTS.

I hope this post helped you a little more on your blogging journey. Whether you’re just posting for fun or to make this a full-time career. These will definitely help steer you in the right direction for having a more seamless, professional and organized feed.

What apps are you loving?

Black Friday in PrettyLittleThing

Who’s ready for Black Friday?! Now don’t get me wrong, when I talk about Black Friday i’m not talking about the going to the stores part. I’m talking about the online sales. I do most of my Black Friday shopping online. It’s easier because you don’t have to get up, get dressed and fight through traffic on the roads and in the stores. The long lines, the short stock, just yuck! You can shop all your favorite stores at the click of a mouse and stay in your pjs at the same time. Who doesn’t love that?

Online Shopping Tip:

Go in the store location first and try on things that you need to make sure they fit. Like jeans, pants, bras, etc. T-Shirts I know I can get a medium or large in. Medium if it’s TTS and Large if I want a little more room or an oversized fit. But doing that will help you when shopping online. If there is no store nearby or at all for the boutique you’re shopping at online, then take your body measurements and look on their size chart to match with a size. That will more than likely give you the right size when you receive it unless their size chart is really off in which usually doesn’t happen.

I can’t wait to Black Friday shop on PrettyLittleThing.us. I’ve been shopping on the site for over a year now and I love all the cute outfits they have at such affordable prices. They’re always on trend but I can stick to my budget rule of not paying outrageous prices for on trend items. Which is important because this mama likes to save money, lol.

I’ve put together this post to bring you some cute outfits you need to grab between now and Black Friday. PrettyLittleThing always has awesome sales and discount codes and Black Friday is no exception. I’ll definitely be on the site grabbing all the things, lol. But make sure you get on there early because all the cute things sell out quick (at least everything I want in my size) *insert cry face emoji* lol.


This first outfit is so cute and so me because it’s got 2 of my favorite things, comfort and camo in the mix, lol. This Shape Camo Joggers and Sweater set is so comfy and cute. You can style the crop top with a cami or bodysuit if you don’t want tummy out. This set also comes in 2 other colors.

I love this AURIEL BURGUNDY KNITTED JOGGER JUMPER loungewear set. It’s so comfy, like wearing a sweater all over your body. It’s perfect for fall because it’s not super thick but not too thin either. The pullover can be worn off the shoulder and I sized up for a more oversized fit.

PrettyLittleThing.com/AURIEL BLACK JOGGER JUMPER KNITTED LOUNGE SET


I got this BASIC V NECK T SHIRT DRESS in 2 colors because I thought it was so cute. I feel like it’s more flattering on my shape when I wear it with a knot either on the side or in front. It adds a nice silhouette to my body. It can be worn like a deep v or off the shoulder. I paired it with a jean jacket because it’s a dress that can be transitioned into fall and a jean jacket is good for places that don’t get cold at all but a little cool. Because the jacket can still be worn inside stores or restaurants (at least I do because I’m always cold, lol.) But the dress can be worn alone with light accessories or dressed up for a night out. I love versatile clothing pieces and these dresses definitely are.

This cute PRETTYLITTLETHING BLACK T SHIRT DRESS I had to have because it’s cute but casual. It can be worn all year round for me (I live in Florida) or anyone else that has warm weather for a majority of the year. A T-shirt Dress is something every girl needs to have in her wardrobe because it’s effortless casual cute. It has the relaxed casual comfort of a basic t-shirt and the length and style of a dress. Just add some cute accessories like a layered necklace, baseball hat and sneakers and you instantly look effortlessly cute and put together.

FIT TIPS:
-Sets are TTS and have good stretch. I’m wearing a size 8 in Camo Set and size Medium in Black set.
-T-Shirt Dress runs TTS. I’m wearing a size 6.
-Olive and Tan Basic V-Neck T-Shirt Dresses run a little big, I’m wearing a size 8 but I would have sized down.


Sizing reference:
I’m 5’8″. Typically wear 9-9.5 in shoes and a size 10 if they run small. M/L in tops and dresses. 6-8 in Jeans depending on make and brand.

I hope this post helped you guys find some cute things to grab during Black Friday. Let me know in the comments if you’ve got your eyes on anything from PrettyLittleThing. Are there any other online shops you can’t wait to catch sales on?
