Yay!!! There are finally some flowers in my back yard and it's warm enough to comfortably take photos outside again! I partnered with Walmart this month to show some great quality, versatile basics for Spring/Summer... They have tons of cute, inexpensive pieces - and my entire outfit here (hat, top, shorts, bag and shoes) was less than $65! Don't forget, you get free shipping with any $35+ purchase too.

I'm picky about hats, but this one is great (comes in black too!) I find a lot of hats are tight on me but this is roomy and comfortable. The brim is structured enough that it doesn't flop into your eyes too (big plus!)

My top is here. It's a lightweight cotton blend, and I thought it was true to size (I'm wearing small) but if in doubt, size up. Currently sold out in red but still in stock in all sizes in the yellow. (Select your size even if it looks greyed out! And check back for a restock in the red, it will be within the same listing.) I also bought this style, which is similar.

My white denim shorts are here. They're comfy, have some stretch, and aren't see through (true to size for me - if in doubt, go up.) My canvas tote is here and is such a steal!!! Some other patterns too including flamingos and anchors.

My cork wedges are from the Time and Tru label - their sizing seems very consistent and quality is always great for the price.

Discounted Designer Handbags

You can often save a lot of money on niche brands by shopping on eBay. For instance, I love wearing Orla Kiely bags because they're unusual and feature lots of gorgeous designs - people have stopped me multiple times to ask about them. eBay is perfect for items like this due to their wide and ever-changing selection (especially if you missed out on a retired design and cannot find it any place else.)

Also - not handbag-related, but I grabbed the J.Crew tee I'm wearing above since I wanted one that would match my bag in a nice Spring green!

Check out the gorgeous signature orange lining on the Orla Kielys (mine seem to all have a key holder thing too, which makes it impossible to lose your keys - a nice touch.)

Also I love the little feet on the bottoms. (You can see just a few of the many patterns here.)

For super high-end handbags at a discount, you want to be sure to buy through eBay's authenticate listings. (These include Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Prada and more.) eBay authenticate bags are examined by an expert to make sure they are the real deal. Check out my post from December about how I got a beautiful vintage Gucci bag on eBay.
