While we’re waiting for those consistently warmer days ahead, the weather loves to play fickle! One day it’s sunny and 60 degrees, the next day we’re shoveling snow. The unpredictability of the weather can make it difficult to switch your seasonal wardrobe, so we’ve come up with some outfit ideas that can take you from winter to spring with ease. See our winter to spring style inspiration below.

This ice blue shade is all the rage this season, so wear it from winter to spring and get the most out of this trendy piece. In winter, style it with faux leather pants, ankle boots, and a faux fur vest. In spring, pair it with jeans, white sneakers, and a pretty pearl headband.

This feminine floral skirt is a great piece no matter what the weather is. When it’s cold, wear it with a cozy sweater, warm socks, and knee-high boots. When the weather gets nicer, style it with a button down, lacy bralette, and sweet sweater-style mules.

Take your LBD (long black dress) through all the seasons! In winter, pair it with a velvet blazer, velvet mules with jewel accents, and a jeweled belt. In spring, have fun with florals by adding these girly sneakers, a pink jean jacket, and a silky headscarf.

Yes, we know it’s only July…we don’t want to rush summer either! But it’s never too early to start prepping for back to school. The school supply lists can seem endless and if your young ones are growing like weeds, shopping for clothes can be frustrating, to say the least. Back-to-school shopping can be exhausting and expensive, but Walmart is making it easy with everything you need for the upcoming school year at a price that’s definitely budget friendly. So shop away now, and then sit back, relax, and enjoy the rest of your summer vacation.

First Day Outfit

Picking out the perfect first day outfit is kind of like picking out the perfect wedding dress. Okay maybe not THAT close but still…the first day back to school is the first time seeing a bunch of people that probably haven’t been seen in a while, and there will definitely be photos taken (just one more!!) so wanting an outfit that looks good is understandable. This goes for all you teachers, too! We know you want to dress to impress this year’s students and we support it. Check out some of these fashion finds for a first day outfit below.

Backpacks and Lunchboxes

Looking good doesn’t stop with the clothes! These backpacks and lunchboxes are not only functional, they’re fashionable, too. Your child will rule the school in style – and maybe a cool backpack will help the kids look forward to doing homework (one can dream, right?).

School Supplies

There’s something exhilarating about new school supplies. Everything is brand new and shiny, full of potential.

Most schools give out supply lists but if you want to get a jumpstart on supply shopping, we’ve rounded up the essentials here.
