Happy summer rockstars.

Have I got the POST for you today.

It’s full to the brim of the cutest summer fashion finds from Walmart. There’s nothing I love more than a cute summer outfit to make the sun shine a little brighter.

And in amazing news?

Nothing is over $36.

There are jeans and dresses and tops and outfits for every occasion this summer.

Are you ready?



Everything I’m sharing here is from the Free Assembly line at Walmart.

Have you ever watched Project Runway before?

One of the judges on there, Brandon Maxwell, is the new creative director for Free Assembly and the new pieces that he has been instrumental in developing are SUCH good quality and so much fun and so fresh.

I’ve been a fan of his for a long time and I was so excited when they announced the news.

And the collections he has created do NOT disappoint.

Case in point? This white linen shirt dress.

I don’t even know where to begin with how much I love it. I ordered it online and when the package arrived and I opened it, I almost gasped at the quality. This is a heavy linen/rayon fabric that feels like those expensive linens from France. It’s heavy and lays so perfectly when you wear it. It has the prettiest bell sleeves and pockets and an open v-neck with a collar and tie belt.

It runs true to size (I’m wearing a small).

It comes in two different colorways (and I ordered both I loved it so much).

It’s the perfect dress for a summer wedding or date night or dinner with girlfriends.

You can see it here.

Here’s the same dress in pink and white stripe.

Same quality fabric. Same draping. Same neckline and see how perfectly it’s cut (thanks Brandon) for a shirt dress.

Sometimes shirt dresses are a little bulky. Not this one. It’s cut true to size and I love the big wide 3/4 length bell sleeves.

Remember that I am only 5 feet tall, so this dress will run a little shorter if you are taller.

You can see the dress here.

Here’s this adorable t-shirt dress that I took flat lay pictures of because I wanted to style it two different ways.

It has the softest fabric and it’s only $18.

The dress comes in six different colorways, including black and white, black, light blue, yellow and yellow and white stripe.

The sleeves are actually a contrasting stripe in the reverse.

Such a cute detail Mr. Brandon Maxwell.

You can see it here.

Now for these jeans and this cute pink bubble shirt with a keyhole back and puffed sleeves.

These are identical to jeans that I wore in the 90s. 

They have a high waist, with a little bit of a loose fit, but fitted through the top, so they give you a good shape.

I cut them off at the bottom to fit and they frayed perfectly. I’m actually going to cut them off again to make them slightly shorter for summer. They are a straight jean, not a skinny jean and they run true to size. I’m wearing a size six here.

You can see them here.

The puffed sleeve top is so soft and ties in the back. It comes in four colorways, including light blue, white, pink and yellow.

You can see it here.

This blue and white smocked midi dress is perfect for any summer outing.

It has 3/4 length puffed sleeves with elastic cuffs and a smocked top with the tiniest little ruffle.

There are long slits on each of the sides and it has a convertible neckline. You can wear the sleeves off the shoulders or pulled up like I am wearing here.

It comes in several different colorways (of course you know blue and white is my favorite) including orange, white, and black.

You can see it here.

There are so many amazing pieces to choose from.

Here’s everything I’m wearing in this post.

I also linked a few more of my favorites that I have on order:

May your summer be full of sunshine.

May your summer be full of cute outfits.

And may your summer be full of ALL the red lipstick.

You GOT THIS friend.

Happy day.

    You look SUPER cute! I wish they made some of these longer for us taller and longer waisted people. I'll have to check out and see what else Walmart has. Gotta love a bargain! ;) Thanks, friend!

    I agree, cool! You must wear your hair back and up more often. Very becoming in this style. What brand and color nail polish are you wearing?

    Love all of these but the blue smocked dress is adorable on you. Plus all the cute shoes!! You are so good at hunting down the cute stuff. I saw a lot of the Free Assembly items are on clearance too. Total aside, I would love to see a sleep wear post. Cute stuff! Got mine on the way!

    You are just rocking these outfits (and the red lipstick, of course…which you have inspired me to wear and I’m loving it, too!) You have me thinking about cutting off some of my jeans. Did you just cut straight across? Did you stitch in a hem above the frey at all? Thanks for a great post!

    Got any recommendations for clothing that is made in the USA? It's interesting that the specific country of origin is no longer listed - just says "imported."
