"I could buy designer; but this [
WALMART] fit???"

Yeap, that's right. I've finally collaborated with Angelica, the Content Creator of TheStrongSuit.co and one of my go-to style gurus, to style a few pieces from one of our new favorite places to shop for clothes; Walmart! I personally didn't imagine that I would ever consider Walmart as a prime location for super cute items; but alas, here we are, yall. Their Time and Tru and No Boundaries collections excite me just as much as Target's Wild Fable collection and yall KNOW how hype I was about my Wild Fable Joggers. Lookin' cute and savin' coins simultaneously - my wallet didn't even know such a combination existed.

I was intentional about purchasing pieces specifically for the fall, that could be styled multiple ways and paired with other items that I already had in my closet. I am a summer girl, so I always neglect to properly prepare for the colder months and end up looking cute, cold and crazy. My staple items were a basic turtleneck, a pair of mid-rise skinny jeans, a pair of cinched-ankle sweatpants and a basic cardigan. The two looks you'll see in this post included all 4 of these items + some jewelry from Walmart's Time and Tru collection. 

The first look we styled for one of our favorite events, NC State's Homecoming Tailgate (featuring the grill that I used to make my highly-requested honey-buffalo wings). Angelica and I decided to keep it pretty simple since I was planning to be pretty active. I am always looking to add more jeans into my wardrobe because denim can literally be dressed up or down; however, it's sometimes difficult for me to find jeans that [comfortably] fit my curves, so I usually pay a pretty penny for a quality pair. These jeans fit perfectly (think FashionNova at a much cheaper price) and have already made it into my weekly rotation - I snagged these for $11, yall. And I mean it when I say the fit is comparable to FashionNova. They had other styles/colors in their denim arsenal and the most expensive pair was only $16. I've already paired them with a denim colored button up, for a Canadian tuxedo look, and a pair of Chelsea boots for an evening exploring downtown Durham (I will post that look next time I wear it, lol). 

I paired the jeans with a cutoff NC State tee and this super comfy, double-knit Black cardigan that only cost me $20. This cardigan will likely be featured several times this season because of the great quality and the ability to go from day-to-night with ease. A cardigan like this would probably be double Walmart's price somewhere like H&M or Express; so, I will definitely be going back to get the camel (featured in Angelica's post - thestrongsuit.co) and the olive green colored cardigans just like this one. Here's another one of their maxi length cardigans for only $13 online! As you can see, we kept it simple with accessories; but, the jeans and the cardigan together made for a perfect tailgate 'fit all by themselves.

For this next look, Angelica wanted to style 3 of the 4 pieces all in one outfit and I have to say, this was definitely my favorite look! I wanted a pair of sweatpants that I could dress up and go out in, or pair with sneakers and run errands in and these definitely got the job done. I love basics for that very reason; they're so versatile. We styled these cinched-ankle sweatpants with a maroon/plum colored turtleneck and some Black, chunky-heeled booties from H&M. This turtleneck could be dressed up even more with a fur vest or a knee-length cardigan, high-waist jeans or a button-down skirt. Check out these Cowl Neck Chenille Sweaters - definitely a great addition to your Fall wardrobe! You could also make a statement with a cute pair of drop earrings like the ones I purchased from Walmart. They were only $4!

Comfort and style go hand-in-hand for Angelica and I both, so the Time and Tru and No Boundaries collections are great. I got all of the pieces featured in this post, plus a pair of charcoal gray joggers, for just $60! Guess where I'm headed on payday? Until then, please go check out Angelica's Walmart style post at thestrongsuit.co and let us know what you think about the pieces we got.
